'Teen Mom 2': Kailyn Lowry gives birth to fourth son at home after breech birth scare, names him Romello
Kailyn said the baby sleeps very well and that she thinks he was going to be 'a pretty chill baby'
On the December 1 episode of ‘Teen Mom 2’, Kailyn Lowry arranged for a photoshoot to capture the moment of being a family of four for one last time because she was going to deliver her baby soon. In the last episode, we saw that Kailyn really wanted to have a midwife and deliver her baby at home.
Since her baby was looking like a breech birth, the doctor said she shouldn’t do home delivery and it would be illegal if she did so since it's not medically recommended. Right before birth, most babies are in a headfirst position in the mother's uterus. Sometimes, the baby is in a bottom-first (or feet-first) position. This is called a breech birth or breech baby. The doctor advised her to wait for some time and see if the baby turns.
In this episode, Kailyn confirmed that the baby had turned inside her belly when she came back from the hospital after taking an ultrasound. She got a call from the executive producer of the show and Kailyn told her how strange it was in the hospital during a pandemic. She felt it was scary and she was very happy with her decision of giving birth at home.
She also confessed to her producer that she had never imagined that she would have four kids over a period of 10 years but there she was. She said she never planned on having so many babies but after her first baby was born she wanted more kids of her own.
The night before she was due to deliver, she and Lux, her youngest, had a cute interaction where Lux felt the baby kick in his mom’s belly. Kailyn informed that she was two days past her delivery date. The day she finally delivered she had painful contractions. She got up at 5.30 in the morning, ate cereal and freshened up. She called her ex Chris and her midwife and after hours of contractions, her baby boy was finally born.
Next day Kailyn gave the viewers a quick update on how the baby was doing while her good friend Natalie came over to babysit her other kids. Kailyn said the baby sleeps very well and that she thinks he was going to be “a pretty chill baby.”
She mentioned she had cramps from nursing the baby and later that day Natalie came over with Kailyn's three boys to see the baby for the first time. The kids were very excited to see their baby brother and they fought about who was going to hold him first. Kailyn's new baby was named Romello Creed Lopez.
'Teen Mom 2' airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm ET on MTV.
