Kailyn Lowry Wants to Take on Another Untraditional Mothering Role (VIDEO)

Kailyn LowryKailyn Lowry is one reality star who seems to have her crap together. You'd never guess from watching her episode of 16 & Pregnant, but this now-22-year-old has turned into a fantastic earth mother who champions breastfeeding and even ate her own placenta.

The Teen Mom 2 star and New York Times bestselling author has obviously embraced motherhood, and she and her hubby Javi Marroquin have made no secret of the fact that they'd like to add another little one to their brood. Kail says three would be enough for her, but when she's done making babies for herself, she'd like to help other couples have children by becoming a surrogate!

During a live interview for OK! Magazine, Kailyn said, "I'm hoping for one more, and then maybe become a surrogate for someone, but that's about it ... three is enough for me."

Holy moly! Lending another couple your uterus for nine months isn't exactly like loaning out a cup of sugar or even your favorite pair of shoes. Pregnancy is hard, and it takes a toll on your body and sometimes takes over your life. It takes a very special kind of person to act as the oven for a baking baby who she won't get to take home with her after the birth.

But Kail seems like the type who could do it. She has a selfless attitude toward motherhood, brought on in part by her own dysfunctional upbringing. She's said in the past that her mom taught her how not to be a mom, so it makes sense that she would want to bring joy and life to another couple who would be good parents to a child. The world needs more good parents.

Would she surrogate for a stranger, or would it have to be personal? Would it be easier or more difficult to carry a baby for a stranger or a family member or close friend? Last year a friend asked Kail to "borrow ur uterus" when she was done being pregnant with Lincoln, and she responded, "I’ll help you out! We can work it out."

Would you consider carrying a baby for another couple?

I have always said id love to do that..but for some reason..my husband is not a fan of me doing it. It gets him very upset if i even joke about it. Not sure why. Id also like to adopt a baby who needs a mommy one day. Right now..i have 3 little ones of my own.

I have offered to do this for several friends that cannot concieve for whatever reason. I havehad 5 of my own and would LOVE to bring the same kind of joy to someone else that I have experienced.

I never liked her, she seemed too whiney and just blah, but lately, shes really got her stuff together, im very impressed how shes grown up.

I wanted to donate my eggs, but was always pushing it further to the future and now im too old. Apparently my 33 y old eggs are no donation matetial anymore. But id love to adopt a child out of foster care at some point. I have three of my own, and I dont want anymore, especially not a baby, so ive been thinking maybe adopting an older child, few years from now when my kids are older too

I'm not sure why she's painted in such a good light. She seems so fake. She has such a horrible temper, treats her husband like shit and constantly snaps on him, and is always whining and pissed off. Always. I started to skip her parts in the show because she drives me nuts. I'm crunchy myself so it's nice to see her trying to normalize things that I support, but that doesn't make me like her any more. It just seems like she's doing it more to get articles like these written about her to keep her in the news than anything.

I would love to surrogate but I have health issues that make it too risky :( I would prefer a stranger personally. I think Id need that space. Good for Kali I have to say I am becoming a fan of her and I completely detest that show 16 & pregnant.
