Unfortunate news comes from Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry, who has tested positive for COVID-19. According to E! News, the MTV personality revealed the news during an episode of her podcast Baby Mamas No Drama this week, also sharing that her co-host Vee Rivera has contracted the virus as well.

And not only do Kail and Vee have the coronavirus, but so do Kailyn’s four children — Isaac, who she shares with ex-fiancé Jo Rivera, Lincoln, who she shares with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, and Lux and Creed, both of whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez. According to Kailyn, this is the second time she’s tested positive for COVID-19, and her son Lincoln just had it this past March.

Additionally, Kail’s ex-husband Javi is also suffering from the virus. It would appear anyone Kailyn has spent time with recently likely has a high chance of testing positive, although the 29-year-old believes she contracted COVID-19 from a trip to the Dominican Republic.

Is Kailyn Lowry vaccinated?

E! News cites People in reporting that while Vee confirmed she’s vaccinated, Kailyn hasn’t said that she is or is not. And actually, as many Teen Mom fans probably know, Kail has been pretty open in the past about being against the vaccine. In April 2020, she caught backlash after stating she would not vaccinate her children.

And it looks like Kailyn might unfortunately be reaping the consequences — if it’s true she hasn’t been vaccinated — as she revealed on the podcast this week that she’s feeling the side effects of COVID-19. “I knew because I felt like s**t all week,” she said. “Once I lost my taste and my smell, I knew what it was.”

Kailyn believes she gave Vee the virus, sharing: “I just felt bad ’cause I’m like, you know, we were on vacation and I obviously would not have been around people if I knew I had COVID, but I tested negative twice.” Fortunately, Vee noted that while she contracted the coronavirus, her husband Jo and their daughter Vivi have tested negative.

The CDC continues to encourage people to get vaccinated for COVID-19, writing on their website with a recent update:

"“Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With the Delta variant, this is more urgent than ever.”"

We hope Kailyn and those affected make a speedy recovery.
