Kailyn Lowry is literally famous for being a mom. The reality star has taken on the role seven times, to be exact. She welcomed her oldest child Isaac, 13, with ex Jo Rivera, followed by Lincoln, 9, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, and 6-year-old Lux and 3-year-old Creed with ex Chris Lopez. Kailyn shares her three youngest children, son Rio, 1, and her newborn twins, with boyfriend Elijah Scott.
The Teen Mom 2 alum previously played it coy about whether or not she actually gave birth to her and Elijah’s son Rio in late 2022. While she seemed to slip up and confirm the birth of a fifth child during a July 2023 episode of her Baby Mamas No Drama podcast with Vee Torres, she didn’t officially reveal the news herself until October 2023.
During an October 2023 episode of Kailyn’s Barely Famous podcast, the reality star revealed that she was expecting twins with Elijah. The couple announced the birth of their twins, a son and a daughter, on their podcast in January 2024. They revealed that the babies were born five weeks early and that Kailyn got her tubes tied after the delivery.
The twins are babies #2 and #3 for Elijah. He’s also Rio’s father. Here’s everything you need to know about Kailyn’s boyfriend and father to three of her kids.
Elijah Is a Construction Worker
According to Us Weekly, Kailyn shared that her boyfriend “pours concrete” with the best of them. “Get you someone who pours concrete by day and sings R&B by night,” she captioned a June 21, 2023 video on IG stories. He’s also worked in auto repair, running a business called Scott Auto & Motorcycle Repair, Yahoo reports. It’s unclear if he still works there.
He Was in the Army
Before dabbling in auto repair and construction, Yahoo reports that Elijah served time in the U.S. Army.
Elijah Did Not Have Children When He Met Kailyn
When the topic once came up of having a fifth child with Elijah during her podcast, Kailyn revealed that her boyfriend didn’t have any kids. “Ah, I don’t know,” she said. “Like the idea of starting over. My youngest [son, Creed] is about to be two. But my boyfriend doesn’t have kids of his own, so it could go either way.”
He Was Kailyn’s Neighbor
According to the Barely Famous podcast host, the duo met in a rather simple way — they were neighbors in Delaware! “I had already bought my house and moved into my house before I knew that this was your house,” Elijah said during a June 2022 episode of the podcast. Kailyn also revealed she was the one to pursue him.
Elijah Takes Care of His Health
Elijah and Kailyn hold each other accountable when it comes to staying healthy. “Me and my boyfriend actually send pictures of Open Vitamins that we take every morning,” Kailyn said while promoting the product in April 2022. “He will send me a picture of his and I will send a picture of mine.”
