“I know that the situation is not ideal, however, the absolutely untrue and defamatory statements people are making about me because of this are out of hand,” Lowry said, referring to the criticism she’s received following the announcement that she is pregnant. “At the end of the day, I have three children that are happy, healthy and wonderful kids. I know I’m prepared to raise another baby on my own and we are all so excited to welcome him into our family.”
This is the second child Lopez and the Teen Mom 2 star share. The on-off couple share 2-year-old Lux, while Lowry also shares 9-year-old son Isaac with ex Jo Rivera, and 6-year-old son Lincoln with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
While Lowry and Lopez aren’t together – the pair have “no contact” with each other – he is the father of the child and “has admitted to intentionally getting me pregnant,” she told US Weekly. “The circumstances surrounding conception are not up for discussion.”
The reality star had a protective order against her on-off boyfriend when she got pregnant – but isn’t commenting anything else on that matter.
“Legally, I’m not able to go into detail,” Lowry told the outlet. “Domestic violence and narcissism are very real subjects, and when I’m in the place to be able to offer advice, I will.”
On February 4, Lowry announced that she was expecting another baby, and later that month revealed the baby’s gender via Instagram.
