Kailyn brought up the topic with her co-host, Vee Rivera, 31, after noticing some confusion online about comments she made on the podcast the week prior.
“I saw a thread on our group that was like, ‘is Kail single? She kind of made it seem like she was single?’” the Teen Mom 2 alum recalled.
Fans were referring to the 31-year-old’s remarks to their guest, Chris GQ Perry, about her taking on the bulk of the finances at her $750,000 Delaware mansion, despite Elijah, 24, also living there.
She then pointed out another user’s comment, which noted a previous podcast conversation about her sex life, or lack thereof, at the time.
“And then someone commented that I said on this podcast or another one that I didn’t have sex for three months….” the TV star said.
Kailyn first addressed the NSFW remark saying that due to “life and the Lexapro,” the depression medication she was taking, she had less of a drive to be intimate with her partner.
She then assured listeners that that has since changed: “I am currently having sex now.”
The former Teen Mom went on to clear up speculation regarding her relationship with Elijah and confirmed their bond was stronger than ever.
“I also just wanted to publicly apologize to Elijah because I didn’t mean to insinuate that I was single. “
She continued to reference her comments from the previous week, explaining how they’ve divided up the finances.
“I do pay all the bills right now, but that’s because of our situation is that we’re working on some things, and we’re trying to save for certain things, and I want him to save his money for said thing…right now that’s what works for us, I didn’t mean to complain.”
Kailyn then stressed that Elijah “makes up for it in other ways” by doing other things around the house.
“There’s actually never really been trouble in paradise. We have the healthiest relationship I’ve ever been in,” the mom of four stated.
She concluded: “So, I just wanted to clarify more for him more than anybody because I didn’t want him to see it or hear it and be upset by what I said.”
The confusion started when Kailyn, Vee, and their guest Chris discussed the “roles” of women and men in relationships in last week’s episode.
“I have a hard time in my relationships, I think, accepting a man who will provide and protect and do all of those things,” Kailyn 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,” the MTV alum admitted.
She 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 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.
Fans then noticed her seemingly slim down after her supposed due date and were convinced she had given birth after spotting various clues in her social media posts.
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.
