At one point, the trio discussed the “roles” of women and men in relationships, leading the Teen Mom 2 alum to share her financial responsibilities in her household.
“I have a hard time in my relationships, I think, accepting a man who will provide and protect and do all of those things,” she began before revealing that she takes care of all her expenses.
“I pay 100% of the bills at home, and I pay for all my kids, and it would be very weird for me to be with someone who does those things,” Kailyn admitted.
The remark caught fans’ attention since the mom of four resides with her former next-door neighbor turned boyfriend, Elijah, 24, at her $750K Delaware mansion.
The reality star again referenced her financial contributions, saying she doesn’t have a “choice” but to make the payments.
“I’m paying all the bills because I don’t have a choice. I feel like if it was my choice to pay all the bills, and that’s how it was, it would be more of a 50/50 split.”
Kailyn continued: “I feel like I almost use it to my advantage when it comes to my relationships which is super unhealthy.”
The podcaster’s confession prompted Vee and Chris to share their thoughts on her situation.
“I feel like you need an alpha man to just come in and be like, ‘Baby, I’m paying this,’ and that’s it. You need someone that will take initiative, and I don’t think you’ve been with someone like that yet,” Vee suggested.
Chris then asked Kailyn what she would do if “a man came into her life tomorrow” and provided for her, to which the TV star replied: “It would be very uncomfortable for me. I would feel like I don’t have control of anything.”
Throughout the conversation, Kailyn did not mention that she had a partner, and it was apparent that her guest wasn’t aware of her live-in boyfriend.
At the end of the episode, Chris told the ladies: “Vee, you’re awesome too, and I wish you the best in your relationship. You too, Kail. I’m sure you’re going to find somebody amazing for you.”
Kailyn just laughed at his comment and said, “thank you,” instead of mentioning her rumored baby daddy.
Listeners immediately noticed the oversight and took their opinions to a popular Teen Mom message board.
The original poster shared a clip of Kail and Vee’s sign-off with their guest with the caption: “Anyone else catch this on BMND today? Kail also alluded to baby Elijah living separately in a previous episode. Has he been downgraded back to neighbor?”
Another weighed in: “It sounded like she was very very single. She can’t get out of the cycle of dysfunction.”
A second commented: “Is anyone surprised, though? I knew he wouldn’t make it to the first birthday party.”
And a third pointed out: “Someone asked her on her IG live just now ‘does baby Elijah exist?’ And she said ‘absolutely f**king not.’”
Last month, The U.S. Sun exclusively confirmed that Kailyn quietly welcomed her fifth child – her first with Elijah.
A source close to the star exclusively claimed to The U.S. Sun: “Kailyn gave birth to a baby boy on November 20 with Elijah. She has only told close family and friends.”
It came after months of speculation that Kailyn was pregnant after she was seen sporting what looked like a baby bump on numerous occasions.
However, Kailyn has been tight-lipped on the matter and has not publicly addressed the rumors.
The young mom’s rumored fifth child would join her four sons: Isaac, 13, whom she shares with her ex-Jo Rivera; Lincoln, eight, with her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin; and Lux, five, and Creed, two, with her ex-Chris Lopez.
Last month, fans believed that Kailyn and Elijah were engaged after she wore a ring that looked like a diamond on her left ring finger.
The sighting was during an Instagram video where she talked about her Stanley travel mug, though all viewers could focus on was her jewelry.
This wouldn’t be the first time rumors circulated that Kailyn and Elijah parted ways.
In November, the Pennsylvania native posted a cryptic post seemingly aimed at her boyfriend that read: “Buying your boyfriend a PS5 knowing he needs a LeapFrog is outrageous.”
Months earlier, fans wondered if they were done since Kailyn had refrained from posting about him on social media.
After her guest and influencer, Landon Romano, asked about her relationship status, Kailyn explained that she was trying to respect Elijah’s privacy.
“Yea, and he’s not really big into social media and stuff, so I – we did the soft launch on Instagram, and I just kind of left it there,” she said.
“A lot of people think that we broke up, but we didn’t. I just don’t post about him.”
