(MAINNEWS) – “Teen Mom” alum Kailyn Lowry has reportedly welcomed her fifth child with boyfriend Elijah Scott.
Sources claimed to The US Sun on Wednesday that the former reality TV star, 31, quietly “gave birth to a baby boy on Nov. 20″ but decided to keep his arrival a secret.
“She has only told close family and friends,” the insider added.
While it’s unclear how long she and Scott have been together, they went Instagram official back in May.
Lowry also has four other children with three different exes. She and Jo Rivera share 13-year-old Isaac, while she and her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, co-parent son Lincoln, 9. She also welcomed sons Lux, 5, and Creed, 2, with ex Chris Lopez.
Lowry did not respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
The news comes amid months of speculation that the MTV star was pregnant after Lopez seemingly outed her secret on Twitter.
In a since-deleted tweet, Lopez — who had a very rocky relationship with Lowry — insinuated that the “16 and Pregnant” alum had to “protect” her growing belly.
Around the same time, photos circulated online of the reality TV star out shopping with what appeared to be a baby bump.
Despite Lowry’s best efforts to keep the baby hidden, fans noticed the sound of an infant crying in the background of one of her Instagram Stories last month.
“Look at the milk bottle being whisked away and the baby whining in the background! Why is she denying the baby, this is so strange,” one person tweeted alongside the video.
Thankfully, Lowry has a lot more time to take care of her growing brood now that she’s no longer starring in “Teen Mom 2.”
Back in May, the reality star announced she was departing the MTV series after 11 years.
“I think I need to move on,” Lowry said during the show’s recent reunion. “I think I need to do my own thing. I think this needs to be my farewell. I think I’m ready.”
