Kailyn Lowry is likely just days away from welcoming her third child, and as the due date approaches, her own approach seems to be shifting.
After keeping a tight lid on the details for most of the past nine months, she suddenly seems eager to share the experience with her millions of fans.
At first, even the identity of Kailyn’s baby daddy remained a mystery, making amateur detectives out of millions of social media followers.
But at this point it seems Lowry is focused on welcoming a happy and healthy child, and unconcerned about the opinions of the public.
Well, not unconcerned, ’cause she’s still over-sharing … but less concerned with keeping a lid on things or whether people may judge.
Over the past 24 hours, tweets posted by Kailyn and her Teen Mom 2 co-star Leah Messer have attracted widespread attention online.
Zealous super-fans eager to know everything about the new addition currently known only as Baby Lo may have a lot more to go on.
Many have jumped to the conclusion that the 25-year-old Kailyn revealed the kid’s name in advance of his or her birth.
That’s not entirely true … but we do know what sort of names she’s considering thanks to the reality star’s comments.
“I like last name for first names, how do we feel about Murphy for Baby Lo?” Kailyn tweeted last night, along with a poll allowing fans to weigh in.
Lowry followers then gave their two cents on the somewhat unorthodox moniker … and it wasn’t exactly a smash hit.
The name didn’t go over well with her followers, as 78 percent voted “no,” and just 22 percent gave it a thumbs-up.
As for whether that gives away the gender?
Many fans assumed that the name was an indicator that Kailyn is having a boy (Are none of these kids Murphy Brown fans?! God, we’re old), but Lowry was quick to set the record straight:
“No I actually like it for a girl,” she tweeted.
“But idk what I’m having.”
Yes, Kailyn says she doesn’t actually know her baby’s gender yet, as she wants to be surprised on the day of delivery.
This is consistent with her attitude toward her first two pregnancies, both of which ended in a surprise (and a boy).
But naturally, there are plenty willing to offer surprisingly confident guesses about whether Kail will be welcoming a son or a daughter.
Her Teen Mom 2 co-star Leah Messer, for example, seems convinced that Lowry has a girl on the way this time around.
Over the weekend, Leah reiterated her belief that Kailyn will welcome a little sister for Lincoln and Isaac this summer.
She didn’t explain why, and Lowry gave away no information when she simply laughed the remark off, tweeting:
“I’d be calling you cause idk how to dress myself let alone a little girl!”
Meanwhile, fans are on ’round-the-clock Lowry labor watch, bracing for big news every time Kailyn briefly goes silent on social media.
“@KailLowry hasn’t tweeted in 11 hours. I automatically think Baby Lo is on the way!” tweeted one fan.
Not the case … unfortunately for all.
“I wish it were true!” Kailyn replied.
After a tumultuous pregnancy, it seems Lowry is just as eager to deliver this baby as her fans are to hear about it.
As always, you can watch Teen Mom 2 online for more from the hectic life of Kailyn Lowry through the years.
Just don’t expect to see her baby daddy when you tune in for the premiere tonight when the hit show returns to MTV.
Chris Lopez and his other hoes will not be appearing, we’re told … so she should be more or less on her own.
