Kailyn Lowry Breaks Down About Her Mom & Vows to Do Better for Her Sons (VIDEO)

Kailyn LowryWe can't help but love Kailyn Lowry. The Teen Mom 2 star has had more than her fair share of bumps in the road -- homelessness, a mom with substance abuse problems, teen pregnancy (to name a few) -- yet she's doing an amazing job making a beautiful life in spite of the obstacles she's overcome.

That's more apparent than ever in this sweet and poignant sneak peek video for Tuesday night's new episode of Teen Mom 2. Kailyn and new hubby Javi Marroquin bring home their newborn son Lincoln Marshall for the first time, and the contrast between the joy she has for her sons and the grief she feels over her own mom is bittersweet.


As the couple brings Lincoln home, new big brother Isaac is already wanting to love on him. "Welcome home, Lincoln!" he says in his sweet little boy voice, after giving him a kiss on the head.

In the next scene, Javi is asking Kail about her mom and the "drunk texts" she'd gotten from her. She said that she was disappointed and broke down in tears and confessed, "I kind of always hold onto this fantasy that she'll be sober one day, and stay that way, and stick around in my life and become my best friend, because when she's sober she's awesome."

Javi asked her, "Do you think she ever will?"

"Probably not," she sighed, before continuing, "I just want to move forward with my life being the best mom I can be, and this is the first day that we're going to be parents of two kids. So ... I want to make the best of it, and give my kids the parents I never had."

Way to go, Kail. It can't be easy, but we're rooting for you. Hug those beautiful boys tight!

Do you think Kailyn is doing a good job as a mama?
