You may think after watching the trailer for the second half of Teen Mom 2's 5th season that you'll finally know everything about every MTV mom, including Kailyn Lowry, but you're wrong. In addition to Lowry's revealing memoir, Pride Over Pity, Kailyn keeps pretty busy when MTV's cameras aren't rolling. Pride Over Pity chronicles everything from Kailyn's past that the MTV series' cameras couldn't fully catch, like her relationship issues with Jo and a brief stay in a homeless shelter. Apparently Jo had been cheating with one of his Taco Bell coworkers while Lowry was pregnant with his son —absolutely unacceptable! To top it all off, a later boyfriend, Jordan Wenner, was caught getting a bit too flirty with a Teen Mom fan.
And, to make matters worse, it seems Isaac used to suffer from some serious medical problems. She talks about Isaac's jaundice, his soft spot being too small, and even a seizure. Well the good news is that though Kailyn and Isaac have been through the ringer, they're now both happy and healthy. And now Kailyn's adorable new son Lincoln is in the mix too. That means her offscreen life is definitely worth paying attention to. Since Teen Mom 2 is returning on July 16th, here's everything Kailyn has been doing since you last saw her on TV.
DEALING WITH KAILYN IMPERSONATORS
This is a tweet from Kailyn's actual account.
And this is a tweet from someone impersonating Kailyn. Hmm, 20,000 followers or 913,000 followers plus a blue verification check? I think it's easy to see who the real Kailyn is.
It seems fitness is a big priority for Kailyn this summer, who's been sharing some of her workout results on Instagram. Kudos to Kailyn for making time for her health.
PREVENTING TEEN PREGNANCY
Kailyn and The Candies Foundation are doing their part to prevent teen pregnancy, which is such a noble cause. Teen Mom itself is a testament to how difficult teen pregnancy is. I'm glad to see Kailyn using her MTV fame to spread the word about safe sex and contraception.
BEING AN LGBTQ ALLY
"No freedom 'til we're EQUAL. Damn right I support it!"
BEING A MOMMY
Kailyn's right, these little munchkins don't need a filter.
ADVOCATING FOR ANIMALS IN NEED
Kailyn is getting involved with lots of campaigns this year. She's one Teen Mom who's definitely is putting her fame to good use.
SIGNING COPIES OF HER BOOK
Kailyn isn't one of those authors who has their publicist or assistant sign their books. It looks like Kailyn hand signs every single copy.
I'm excited to check back in with Kailyn when Teen Mom 2 returns, watch Isaac grow and mature, and get to see more of Lincoln's adorable little cheeks.
