In her new book Pride Over Pity, however, Kailyn reveals some shocking secrets that none of her fans knew about her. In an excerpt obtained by RadarOnline, the reality star says she was coaxed into having sex with a boyfriend and ended up pregnant.
"Toby wouldn't take no for an answer. I didn't want to sleep with [him], but he persisted," she writes. "Denying him seemed fruitless. I believed Toby loved me, so I decided I could give him this one thing as long as he wore a condom."
Apparently, either he didn't oblige or something went wrong, but Kailyn ended up pregnant and her mother refused to let her have the baby. "She was adamant that I would not be allowed to deliver this baby into the world, even though deep down that was what I wanted," Kail confesses.
So, she ended up having an abortion on her 16th birthday. All of this was before we even met Kail on 16 and Pregnant. When she became pregnant at 17 with Jo Rivera, she decided to keep the child and that is when we were introduced to her on the popular MTV show.
We had no idea Kailyn had been through so much--and judging by the excerpt, it sounds like that's not even the half of it. Pride Over Pity will be released on April 22.
