The Teen Mom franchise has shown us some pretty bad dads over the years, but Chris Lopez might actually be the worst of the lot.
We know what you’re thinking — how could this guy possibly be worse than Ryan Edwards or Adam Lind? — but hear us out.
Adam and Ryan have at least made half-hearted attempts to be involved with their kids’ lives.
According to his baby mama Kailyn Lowry, Lopez is merely an “Instagram dad,” who poses for pics with little Lux, but isn’t there when his son actually needs him.
Granted, we’re going entirely off of Kail’s comments about the guy, as Chris refuses to appear on Teen Mom 2, but she has a reputation as being among the most honest and least BS-y of the Teen Moms.
Several dudes have done Kail dirty over the years (we’re looking at you, Javi), so if she says Chris seriously sucks, we’re inclined to believe her.
But as anyone who’s ever sent a late-night “u up” text to a horrendous ex knows, sometimes what the head and the heart (or the genitals) want or two very different things.
It’s partially for that reason that fans are convinced Kail is still hooking up with Chris on the sly.
There’s even a very specific rumor that Kailyn is trying to get pregnant by Lopez.
As far as we can tell, this is a result of the fact that she stated Lowry said she wants a fourth baby, and Chris is a man who was recently in her vicinity.
Some have even gone so far as to “call out” Lowry directly on social media, as though she’s just gonna break down and confess because someone tweeted at her:
“So when Chris wasn’t jumping in your pool, I take it he was jumping in your bed? You did say you wanted another baby by him right?!
Never one to shy away from a troll, Lowry replied with her signature brand of sarcasm:
“Yes, that’s what I do with him in all my free time,” she tweeted.
Now, we all know Lowry isn’t above hooking up with an ex, but if she were looking to bring another kid into the world, we’re pretty sure Chris would be very low on her list of potential baby daddies.
The guy is barely around for the kid he already has.
Plus he won’t go in front of a camera, which means all the drama he brings into Kail’s life doesn’t even equate to more screentime.
Talk about lose-lose situation.
