Sometimes, no matter how much you want to or try to, you just can’t work things out with your ex.
In fact, we’ve seen countless examples of this on Teen Mom – for some of the cast members, just being in a room with their ex is enough to make them fly off the handle.
But it looks like Kailyn Lowry and Jo Rivera are breaking that pattern.
When Kailyn Lowry and Jo Rivera first broke up, things between them were beyond ugly.
But then again, they were also teenagers.
During those fateful years in the early seasons of Teen Mom 2, Kailyn and Jo could barely co-parent, let alone have a civil conversation. And, of course, Jo’s relationship with his now-wife Vee didn’t help things much.
But a lot has changed since then, and Kail has more exes on her mind – namely her third and fourth baby daddy, Chris Lopez.
That doesn’t mean Jo is no longer in her life. In fact, he’ll be in her life forever, since they share a son!
So that means it’s definitely for the best that they’re able to work things out.
Kailyn shared news of her reunion with Jo in the sneak peek for the upcoming episode of Teen Mom 2.
″I try to give my kids the strong family unit that I didn’t get growing up, but when Jo and I are having issues it makes it a lot harder,″ she says in the clip. ″I’m really glad our counseling session is this week.”
Later, she spills to a friend that the therapy was actually Jo’s idea.
″Jo and I are not on the same page about any type of parenting,″ she says. ″There’s no consistency, which is something I didn’t have from my mom and my dad.”
