Former ‘Teen Mom’ star Jo Rivera took a break from social media for nearly five years, but is slowly making a comeback in 2022.
Rivera – who shares a child, 12-year-old Isaac, with former “Teen Mom 2” star Kailyn Lowry – surprised his wife, Vee Torres Rivera and Lowry while recording their podcast “Baby Mamas No Drama.”
“I’m just going to walk in like I’m the owner. Because that’s how I feel today,” he said in the video. “Let’s see what these ladies are talking about.”
Rivera walked to his wife’s office and quietly opened the door. He then entered the room and frightened Lowry, who let out a series of expletives.
Rivera was then invited to participate in the episode “Baby Mamas No Drama”.
“We just made this podcast. It was very fun. It was actually wild,’ he said. “I was not prepared. So I think that’s what I did.”
Rivera and Torres share one daughter: 5-year-old Vivi.
The father of two said he enjoyed ruining his wife’s workday. “Have fun surprising @veeautifyme and @kaillowry today! Watch the latest episodes of the BMND podcast,” he captioned his message.
“Love a supportive king ,” Torres wrote in her husband’s comment section. “First real look at your blooming 😂😂.”
One of the last times Rivera appeared on social media was with Lowry after Isaac performed in a talent show.
On a new episode of “Barely Famous,” Lowry revealed that her mother struggled with alcoholism when she was a child.
She remembered her mother taking her to the bar with no toys to play with. She would beg her mother for snacks or change clothes to play games while waiting for her mother to go home.
“I would worry about my mom when I was a kid,” Lowry said. She remembered the numbers of all the local bars when she was little, in case she needed to find her mother.
She acknowledged that she makes mistakes as a mother.
“For me, if I make a mistake and I know it’s going to affect my kids, it bothers me a lot,” Lowry said.
Lowry went on to rebuke mom-shamers.
“Like, people don’t realize you don’t have to tell me I’m traumatizing my kids,” the mother of four said around 24 minutes into the podcast. “You don’t have to tell me I can make better decisions, and I have to be a role model for my kids, like, I know.”
