One of the original cast members of Teen Mom 2, Kailyn Lowry, loves being a mother. Since her first child Issac was born in 2010, Lowry has welcomed four more children into her life. Although the podcaster shared her pregnancy and life with her fans, she decided to keep her fifth child a secret. At least to the world. While Lowry is now talking about her new son, Rio, she decided to share a collage of photos, celebrating his birth, which happened in 2022. And they have little to do with newborn pictures and more to do with unique smoothies.
Documenting the entire process on Instagram, Kailyn Lowry posted several pictures of her placenta and what the family did with it. Given that the placenta supplies the baby with necessary nutrients and oxygen, it makes sense the Teen Mom 2 alum would want to honor it in some way. And it appears she did that by using some of the placenta to paint with. Using what seemed to be garden shears, Lowry was surrounded by professionals. In the caption, she wrote, “This was the second time I got to work with @lancasterplacentaco”.
Some Fans Aren’t Fans
Fans of Kailyn Lowry and Teen Mom 2 weighed in on the celebration with mixed emotions. One person wrote, “This is very cool, I love the art. Let’s normalize this, nothing gross about seeing what housed our babes for 9 months!” With some support, other comments suggested, “Why would you post this. I feel nauseous now.” Another said, “In the kitchen? Playing with organs? Where you will eat at? Yuck as f–k.” Still another commented, “The blood on the counter I am never eating at other peoples houses ever again”
While using the placenta as finger paint didn’t win over too many people, Kailyn Lowry also shared a video of what appeared to be a smoothie with one special ingredient. Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time Lowry has discussed consuming the placenta after giving birth. Back in 2020, after welcoming her fourth child, Creed, she once again shared a picture of a placenta smoothie. She wrote, “Can you guess what I’m drinking?”
Kailyn Lowry Recalls Scary Birth
Kailyn Lowry isn’t letting the comments get to her either. She once shared how cast members of Jersey Shore encapsulated and even ate part of their placentas. “I’m so f-king pumped because I feel like I got very mixed reviews on the whole process, but it was so fun and so interesting.”
As for Rio, Kailyn Lowry recalled the dangers of the birth and how he was carted off to the NICU on her Barely Famous podcast. “I literally got to hold him for, maybe, three seconds before they took him to the NICU. And I was so upset, beside myself. It was so scary.” Thankfully, Rio recovered and is in good health.
