While other families are giving away tons of gifts at Christmas, Kailyn Lowry has its own festive tradition – which excludes typical giving!
According to AND! Messages, the 29 year old Teenage mother Star jumped up recently Instagram stories to answer some fan questions. At one point a person asked:
“Do you get your dogs Christmas presents like me?”
Similarly: TikToker traded a single hairpin for a house in less than 2 years!
To which she replied and revealed that she will not have her four children, 11 years old Isaac Rivera, 8 years old Lincoln Marshall, 4 years old Lux Russell, and 14 months old Romello Creed, all gifts for the holiday:
“I don’t even get Christmas presents for my children.”
Of course, her answer immediately raised a few eyebrows. Another social media user then asked a question:
“Wait, you won’t get any Christmas presents for your children?”
Lowry then clarified:
“Not from me, no. Some of you are curious and some of you are really upset about it. All I know is that my kids won’t go without it. Let them have something that they only do with their fathers. “
When someone else pushed for more details as to why the children weren’t getting presents, MTV Personality went on to explain:
“I’ve been through this many times, but I’m sick of fighting [with] the fathers [about] there & gave up. Every time I had the kids for Christmas, my other family members were with their families / children in the opposite year and we started taking big vacations about 5 years ago. So Christmas can be with their fathers and they don’t have to worry about dividing it up. “
Honestly, a vacation sounds like a wonderful gift – but it’s just us! Lowry said her little ones “look forward to our family vacation every year,” before adding:
“My children don’t want or need for [sic] everything and I am grateful for it. Maybe one day we will celebrate another day without presents. “
Apparently this is not the first time that mom has brought up this topic. She previously told her co-host, Lindsie Chrisley, during a November 2020 episode of their Coffee convos Podcast:
“We don’t do anything, I just won’t have them so they don’t have to get things for each other. I could ask them if they want to buy something for Christmas, and if they say yes, then of course I would make it easier. They’ll be with their fathers, I’m pretty sure, by the end of Christmas Day, so I have a feeling maybe it’ll be over by then, but I don’t know either. It might be nice to give something to each other, so maybe we’ll see. “
Then she redoubled her decision not to exchange gifts:
“It’s kind of sad, and I understand that. I definitely understand that. I just feel like it is a lot and so much money that I spent on Christmas gifts and then I only got them for half the day and then I had to share. It was just so busy that I would never have three happy dad situations. “
