Kailyn Lowry graduated from college but missed her friend and father of her third son, Chris Lopez
She did it!
Noticeably absent were the fathers of her two sons, Jo Rivera and Javi Marroquin, as well as the father of her unborn son, Chris Lopez.
“I don’t want none of my baby daddies [there],” Lowry tells her friends the night before her graduation.
“Do you feel like anyone’s missing?” a friend asked her.
“Chris,” Lowry said. “That’s what the best things are. He’s my baby daddy. I would still want him here.”
The MTV star seemed not want to dwell on any lingering feelings of sadness, quickly turning the subject to her future plans after graduation.
“I’m already thinking about grad school,” she said. “I would either like to have a job or be in grad school by January.”
Before walking out with her fellow graduates, Lowry expressed her disbelief to her professors that she was achieving a longtime dream of hers.
“Is this real life? Oh my God,” she said.
Despite Lowry’s hope that Lopez would appear at her graduation, he didn’t. However, as she walked across the stage, her two sons cheered loudly from their seats, standing up and waving their arms to congratulate their mother.
After the ceremony, Lowry was quickly surrounded by her children, who were quick to congratulate their mother as she broke down in tears.
“Good job, mommy!” Lincoln said.
The other mothers in the episode were also achieving their own dreams.
