At the time, I felt hurt and betrayed over a moment that I should have been able to announce on my own timeline, and I voiced those feelings against who I thought caused them.”
The Pennsylvania native went on to write that she has been “very open” about her life, noting, “Sometimes people forget that I am human and very real feelings are involved. This was one of those times that I was extremely hurt.”
The “Coffee Convos” podcast cohost concluded, “All in all, no one likes admitting when they’re wrong here, and I wanted to extend that apology to Jenelle. I am sorry.”
While the Hustle and Heart author clarified in the social media upload’s caption that she “would tag” Evans, 30, but the JE Cosmetics creator had “blocked” her account. “Jenelle, I hope you see this,” Lowry wrote.
MTV personalities like you Catelynn Lowell shared her support, commenting, “Taking accountability can be so hard but feels so good when you do it right??? What growth and strength on your part!”

Lux, Lowry’s first son with on-again, off-again boyfriend, Chris LopezSix months later, she was born. Creed, her second child with Lopez, was born in 2020.
The Love Is Bubblegum author’s public apology came days after the Tuesday, April 5, episode of the MTV series showed Vee Rivera, Jo’s wife and Lowry’s “Baby Mamas” cohost, revealing that she was the one who spilled the beans to Marroquin.
Vee, 30, apologized to Lowry on the show saying that she “obviously” wished she hadn’t shared the secret.
“I don’t know if it’s because of all the things I felt in the past, on top of having the baby and I was going through postpartum. I had nobody down here and I felt miserable,” the New Jersey native explained. “I don’t know if I wanted someone else to hurt or something, which is not OK. I would never do it to you or anyone else. I know how deeply it hurt you.”
Lowry spoke to Leah Messer about the situation, saying, “She didn’t just leak my pregnancy to [Marroquin]She [also] told him — which is a complete lie — that my miscarriage that I had with him may not have been his. But I never cheated and that was a planned child. So for her to place doubt in his mind, I just felt like … that part was unforgivable.” (The podcasts cohosts are still releasing new episodes of their show.)
Evans has yet to publicly respond to Lowry’s apology.
