Pregnant Kailyn Lowry explains twin babies’ sex reveal mix-up

Kailyn Lowry shared with fans how she and boyfriend Elijah Scott initially mixed up the sexes of their twin babies.

The “Teen Mom 2” alum posted a TikTok video Monday, explaining how she went from thinking she was having twin boys to realizing she was instead having a boy and a girl.

“So when I first found out I was pregnant with twins, we did the NIPT non-invasive testing. I want to say this is between nine and ten weeks, or eight and ten weeks,” the reality star began.

However, Lowry later learned that the noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) — which typically detects genetic abnormalities — can be confusing when trying to decipher the sexes of fraternal twins.

“So this is a little lesson for anyone who is finding out when they’re pregnant with twins. If they are fraternal and there [are] boy-girl twins, only the boy chromosomes will show up at the test,” she said.

Once the couple went in for their 20-week anatomy scan, they were able to confirm that they were having a boy and a girl.

The soon-to-be mother of seven also explained that she had to “re-do” her original smoke bomb sex reveal after one of the smoke bombs — the pink one — didn’t “go off.”

She jokingly referred to the failed reveal as “a complete Kail and the chaos, couldn’t make that s—t up” moment.

The “Teen Mom 2” alum shared that her NIPT blood test results only showed she was having a boy.

As previously reported, Lowry, 31, posted a video to Instagram last week after receiving an email with her results for the NIPT blood test.

Despite announcing that the babies were boys, Lowry teased in the caption that the results weren’t as they seemed.

“In typical Kail + the Chaos fashion, we have to break this into a 3-part mini-series 😂😅
You’ll fully understand after part 3. Wish me luck 🤞🏻,” she wrote.

However, Lowry later learned that only the boy chromosomes will show up on the blood test, even if one of the twins is a girl.

Two days later, Lowry posted a clip to Instagram from their original sex reveal party during which one of the cannons malfunctioned.

“Gender reveal part 2!” Lowry shared in the caption, adding, “Pumped to tell the kids…and of course one smoke cannon doesn’t go off. I should’ve known then it was foreshadowing the future chaos 😜.”

In addition to her twins, Lowry has five sons from multiple relationships.

On Friday, Lowry finally revealed the plot twist in her journey, with a clip of her sons setting off a blue smoke bomb — followed by a pink one.

The baby girl be Lowry’s first daughter.

The “16 and Pregnant” alum is already mom to sons Isaac, 13, Lincoln, 9, Lux, 6, Creed, 3, and Rio, 11 months.
