Today, Kailyn Lowry turns twenty-two years of age, which is hard to believe because she seems way more mature than that, doesn’t she? But Kail’s made the transition from Teen Mom to young adult mom look so easy, both on Teen Mom 2 and off-screen. Here’s 10 blessings that Kail is probably counting today as she rings in her twenty-second year. Happy birthday, Kail!
She didn’t let her sucky mom ruin her life. Everyone who watches the show knows that Kailyn barely has a relationship with her mother, but that just made Kailyn that much stronger. She wanted to shove it in her mom’s face that she has her life together, and we couldn’t agree with that decision more.
Her husband, Javi, might be the nicest guy ever. Unlike most other Teen Mom baby daddies, Javi knows how to take care of a child and how to treat a woman. We’re into that.
And as a side note: Javi is openly a Miley Cyrus fan and that is just really adorable.
She’s an author! Kailyn’s first book, a memoir called Pride Over Pity, comes out on April 22. The only other Teen Mom to have a book deal thus far is Farrah Abraham, so…yeah.
She’s a businesswoman. Kailyn sells Scentsy candles, as well as Origami Owl jewelry, online, all from her home. This means that she doesn’t have to leave her house to make money, which tons of other working moms have to do. She’s lucky!
She’s got shiny, pretty new teeth. It sucked that Kail had to wear braces to her wedding in September, but that resulted in these gorgeous pearly whites. Worth it, no?
She’s really, really crafty. Kail loves making DIY stuff for herself and her boys. We wish our homes could look this cute:
And speaking of kids, those boys are seriously adorable. We thought Isaac was cute, but then Lincoln was born and we’re like OMG, that wasn’t a fluke. Kail just has the gene for making cute babies, we guess.
Her kids are polite, too. It’s too soon to tell for Lincoln since he’s still a baby, but Isaac seriously seems like the most well-behaved, least spoiled kid on Teen Mom 2. While some Teen Mom tots are out there saying the “F” word, Kail’s son Isaac is telling his mama not to cry and saying adorable things like “I think there’s a baby in there, doctor.” Cannot even handle.
She named her kids after her favorite musicians. Isaac’s reportedly named after Isaac Hanson, and Lincoln’s middle name, Marshall, is an ode to Kailyn’s favorite rapper, Eminem.
But if that’s not enough birthday-ness for ya, Kail, here’s Nathan Griffith singing Taylor Swift‘s “22” to Jenelle Evans on her birthday back in December. We’re sure he won’t mind that we’re reusing the Vine video just this once:
The only thing we’re weirded out by? The fact that Kailyn encapsulated her placenta and ate it after giving birth to Lincoln. We’re just going to let that one slide.
