Kailyn Lowry is opening up about her current pregnancy.

During part two of her tell-all discussion about her family life on her podcast Barely Famous, the pregnant host confirmed she's expecting babies No. 6 and 7 with boyfriend Elijah Scott later this year, weeks after confirming the birth of her fifth son, Rio.

"I'm pregnant with twins," she says in the podcast. "Surprise, the trolls were right again."

"We know Rio is here. He's not even one yet, and yes, I did get pregnant very, very quickly after he was born. I know it wasn't ideal and I don't have answers for that. Things happen, life happens, and thankfully we were still having sex after a baby because that usually doesn't happen for a while."

Lowry explains she discovered her twin pregnancy during her birthday trip to Thailand earlier this year and got confirmation once she came home, just six weeks into the pregnancy.

"We got the same due date as Rio's original due date. The exact same date, not a day off," she shares, adding it will be a scheduled cesarean section this time around due to complications in her pregnancy with Rio. "Very on brand for us. We're going to have Irish triplets, all born in the same month."

In addition to Rio, Lowry is mom to sons Creed, 3, and Lux, 6, with ex Chris Lopez, 9-year-old son Lincoln with ex Javi Marroquin and 13-year-old son Isaac with ex Jo Rivera.

Of her kids' reactions to her pregnancy, Lowry laughs, "Isaac wasn't shocked at all. He was like, 'Again?' They're twins?'"

"He said the only reason they're okay with me having more children is because they're twins and twins are cool, and if it was a singleton he would have moved in with his dad," she continues, revealing that while Isaac knows the sex of the twins, the younger boys do not.

"They just keep asking for a sister, and I don't know how to answer that. I don't want to say anything so I'm just like, 'You can also ask your dads for siblings.' But they're excited. Creed doesn't fully understand. He just says there's two babies in my belly."

Asked what she's excited about in this next chapter of her parenting journey, Lowry admits she's looking forward to being done with "baby-making."

"I'm excited to get my tubes cut out. Because I said this last time and I found out I was pregnant and I couldn't," she recalls. "No more pregnancy, no more pregnancies, no more surprise pregnancies, unplanned pregnancies, pregnancy, surrogacy, none of it. It's all done. The chapter of motherhood will be closing as far of baby-making, but I'm excited for my kids."

"Now I feel like our family is complete — I won't have anything missing. I won't feel like, 'What if we had another one?' I'm excited to explore this motherhood journey in terms of privacy and putting out what I want to put out. I'm excited for that," she continues.

"I'm a little nervous about having four babies in one month. I don't know what birthday parties are going to look like, but I'm excited to see how this goes. Isaac is going to be driving before I know it, so it's just a bunch of milestones all at one time — lots of new beginnings and also closed chapters, I feel."
