Kailyn Lowry Early Life and Introduction
Honesdale, Pennsylvania, is where Kailyn Lowry was born and raised. Born on March 14, 1992, Kailyn is currently 27 years of age. Her mother, Suzanne Irwin, raised her.
While her high school is unknown, we assume that she attended a local school at Honesdale. In Contrast, we know Kailyn graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Delaware State University in the year 2017. It is unknown if she graduated high school or not, but she definitely got some certification to join college.
Kailyn got pregnant for the first time when she was only 16 years old while in high school. Her family was against the pregnancy, and the boyfriend also bailed out. Consequently, Kailyn aborted the child unwillingly. But a year later, she got pregnant again at the age of 17.
Dating Life with Second Baby Daddy ‘Jo’ Rivera
While the name of the first boy who impregnated her when she was 16 is a secret, father to her second pregnancy is Jonathan ‘Jo’ Rivera. At age 17, Kaylin got impregnated by her then-boyfriend Jonathan. Kaylin, against her family’s will, decided to keep the child and gave birth to her first son on January 18, 2010.
Kaylin had moved out of her house due to her family, not supporting her decision. This was also when she joined the MTV original show, 16 and Pregnant. Her first child’s name is Isaac Elliott Rivera. Despite having a child with Jonathan, the relationship between Kaylin and Jo didn’t work out, and they broke up.
Kaylin was still living in the Rivera’s family home after breaking up with Jonathan as she had nowhere to go. But once Kaylin started dating her co-worker Jordan, she had to move out of the house. Her fling with Jordan didn’t even last a few months.
Marriage and Divorce with Javi Marroquin
After moving on from Jonathan and Jordan, Lowry started dating Javi Marroquin in the year 2011. Just after 11 months of dating, Javi and Kailyn got married on September 4, 2012.

Kaylin’s second child and Javi’s first child is a boy who they have named Lincoln Marshall Marroquin. One more year into their marriage and everything was going fine, with their second child on the way, the couple was happy.
But the baby never made it as Kaylin had a miscarriage, and Javi blamed the miscarriage on Kailyn. Due to their irreconcilable differences and Javi cheating on Kailyn, she filed for divorce two years into her marriage. Shortly after, they started living separately. Teen Mom 2 shooting was going on during this process.
Javi and Kailyn had also tried to mend the marriage, which got broken beyond repair. They had been on the show Marriage Boot Camp, but their divorce finalized in October of the year 2016 before the episode aired.
Kailyn is very unhappy with Javi and has remarked about not marrying Javi Marroquin under any circumstances.

Kailyn claims, she was called over eight times in the middle of the night when that incident happened.
