Kailyn Lowry and Chris Lopez are no longer dating but according to a new report, the Teen Mom 2 star hopes he will have a change of heart once their son or daughter arrives.
“Kailyn [Lowry] is praying that Chris [Lopez] has a change of heart and he will want to be a dad after the baby is born," a source told Hollywood Life on July 31. "Kailyn’s own father upped and left when she was really young, so she knows what it’s like to grow up without a dad, and she really doesn’t want the same for her baby."
Lowry and Lopez dated at the end of last year but split up early this year, weeks before Lowry publicly confirmed her pregnancy.
"Chris has said he wants nothing to do with Kailyn or his child, but she’s hoping against hope that he will change his mind once he sees photos of the baby," the insider continued. "Kailyn doesn’t have any desire to get back with Chris romantically, but she thinks it’s really important for their child to have him in his or her life. The thought of her baby having to grow up without a father to guide and love him or her absolutely breaks Kailyn’s heart."
“She’s still very, very angry with Chris but she’s trying not to let those emotions take over,” another Teen Mom insider told the outlet. “She wants to stay happy and positive for her kids, she hates it when they see her crying. She’s not letting her anger take over but she’s certainly not going to let Chris just skate away on this.”
Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on MTV.
