The Teen Mom 2 alum and her former flame welcomed their second child together, Creed, in July 2020 following her pregnancy announcement in February. Their bouncing baby boy weighed 8 pounds, 15 ounces, and was 22.5 inches at birth.
Even though the proud parents were going through some relationship turmoil at the time, Kailyn ultimately decided to let Chris be present for the special moment after originally saying she wouldn’t allow him to be in the delivery room.
“Neither one of us would have the opportunity to take it back or change it,” the 16 and Pregnant alum exclusively told In Touch in August. “I never want my child to question why I didn’t allow their dad to be there. And, I feel like, even if things don’t work out with Chris or he decides not to coparent with me … nobody can ever say that I didn’t allow him to be there and to try to be a parent,” she added.
The TV personality, who also shares son Lincoln Marshall with ex-husband Javi Marroquin and son Isaac Elliot with ex Jo Rivera, reflected on her roller-coaster romance with Chris during the interview. “I truly believe that [Chris is] the first person that I’ve ever really loved in a real way. And so, I think that’s played a huge part in, you know, me being so forgiving and me giving him chance after chance,” Kailyn explained.
In September 2020, the doting dad gushed over their new addition and gave props to the MTV star in a rare message. “Look at my boy [though]!! Say what y’all want. Damn, we made some handsome ass kids,” he captioned a photo of baby Creed being held up by a loved one.

Chris even revealed his side of the story about their tumultuous breakup in an Instagram Q&A in October and confirmed he wanted to be on good terms with the “Coffee Convos” podcast host. “All I can do is learn and grow from what has happened and hope to create a better future for me and my children,” he wrote. “Eventually, we will be able to coparent peacefully seeing as though she has done with the others.”
After going through months of he said vs. she said, a judge finally settled their custody arrangement for kids Lux and Creed during the season finale of Teen Mom 2, but they were required not to discuss the verdict on the show or social media.
“I think that it would have been much more explosive if this was five years ago or 10 years ago,” Kailyn said during the July 2021 episode. “I’m able to kind of deal with my emotions differently and navigate through tough things like this a lot differently with the help of therapy and really committing to that.”
