The reality stars, who documented a portion of their pregnancy on Season 6 of Teen Mom 2, named their baby girl Vivi. Vee actually posted a Facebook photo of herself in the hospital, prior to giving birth, saying, “On my way to you mommy — Vivi. this has got to be one of the hardest days to have gone by, but waiting for that light at the end of the tunnel!” After Vivi’s arrival, Vee posted a picture of Jo proudly holding his baby girl. He then made it his Twitter profile picture.
This is the first child for Jo and Vee. He, however, shares son Isaac, 5, with his ex, Kailyn Lowry. Meanwhile, Kailyn and her husband, Javi Marroquin, also share son Lincoln, 22 months.
Jo and Vee’s baby news was first revealed in March 2015. “Vee wanted to put the news on social media, but Jo asked her to wait so that they could finish telling their family and friends first,” an insider told Radar Online at the time. So while we already knew Vee was pregnancy before the most recent season of Teen Mom 2 aired, it was still nice to see her excitedly tell Jo on camera. As for Kailyn, she seemed just as happy for the couple.
“I have no hard feelings toward her or her unborn child!” Kailyn told host Dr. Drew Pinsky, when addressing rumors she wasn’t happy for her ex and Vee, during the previously taped reunion episode on Sept. 30.
