Saying that a lot has changed for Kailyn Lowry in the past year would be putting it very, very mildly.
The most obvious way in which the Teen Mom 2 star's life has transformed is that she welcomed her third son, Lux.
But there are many other ways in which Kail's life is dramatically different than it was just 12 short months ago.
Some are for the better, while some are for the worse, but despite all the dizzying ups and downs, it seems Lowry has a very clear sense of where she's headed from here...
Kail welcomed her third child in 2017. While her relationship with Lux's father, Chris Lopez, quickly soured, it seems Lowry has had little difficulty adjusting to life as a single mother of three.
Mother of Boys
Obviously, Kail's top priority is her kids, but she realizes that children of successful and fulfilled parents are generally happier. As a result, she stays on her grind in a big way.
These days, Kailyn is not only a reality star, but a best-selling author, a podcast host, and a social media personality with a slew of endorsement deals.
When asked about the future, however, Kail's thoughts turn less to her career than to the number one priority in her life - her family.
Kail recently revealed that she wants at least one more kid. To the disappointment of many TM2 viewers, she was mostly mum on the subject of who she would like to the father of that child.
The Single Life
Inerestingly, Kail also said that she has no desire to enter another romantic relationship at any point in the foreseeable future. Needless to say, fans have a wide array of thoughts on her latest remarks...
Kail Loves Kids
“I want more kids, and it’s crazy because you’re like, ‘Kail you have three kids by three people, why the hell would you want more kids?’ But I don’t know, I feel like I want one more,” Lowry said on a recent episode of her Coffee Convos podcast.
"You already have a zoo!” Kail's co-host Lindsey Chrisley said in response. She was joking, but some fans who believe Lowry should close up shop were troublingly serious in their reactions.
Spacing Them Out
"I feel like having kids [two years apart] makes more sense for them to be best friends, but Isaac and Lincoln are best friends,” Kail told Chrisley.
In a Hurry
It seems Kail isn't keen to wait to around to have her fourth child. And the reasoning behind her urgency makes quite a bit of sense.
“I just feel like if I had another one that was close in age with Lux they could be buddies," Kail told Chrisley. "It’s also insane of me to think that way, but why am I going to wait another four years to when Lux is grown to have to start over?”
Who's Your (Baby) Daddy?
So who does Kail want to make her fourth baby with? Jo Rivera? Perhaps Javi Marroquin? Some fans even suggested she'd give Chris Lopez another shot. But it seems Kail has something completely different in mind...
Kail and Eggs
"I’m going to start looking at sperm donors online and just freeze my eggs,” she said. “I’m not opposed to freezing my eggs for the future.”
Slow It Down, Kail
Later in the conversation, Lowry conceded that she might be rushing things a bit. "So I guess I should wait—I’m only 26—so I guess I should kind of wait it out and see what the future holds. But I do want another [kid].”
As many fans have pointed out, Kail's recent comments about her love life seem to run counter to her goal of having more children.
A Tweet From the Heart
“It’s really hard to trust and to teach trust when we’ve all been burned so many times," Kail recently complained on Twitter.
The Logic of Divorce
Kail later tweeted a link to an article about rapper Logic's recent divorce, saying, “This is the sh-t that make me never want to get into another relationship again.”
No More Sliding In
Lowry also revealed that she's turned off her direct messages on Twitter after receiving several unwelcome advances from male followers. “Reason 742 I will never date again #decline,” she tweeted. Some fans think they know why Kail has suddenly soured on the idea of dating...
The Javi Bomb
All of this comes on the heels of news that Javi Marroquin got back together with Lauren Comeau despite the fact that he was on the verge of reconciling with Kail. "I don’t care what I accepted in the past, I’m not accepting that sh-t now," Kail tweeted this week. Fortunately, it's 2018, and the woman has plenty of options if she wants to have another kid.
