Kailyn Lowry reveals she has a girlfriend -- "It more or less just happened"

Kailyn Lowry has revealed she's in a new relationship with a woman.
The Teen Mom 2 star and Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars participant discussed her love life during a recent appearance on the Coffee & Convos with Lindsie Chrisley podcast.
When asked if she has a girlfriend, Kailyn replied, "Yeah."
"And have y'all been on a legitimate date?" asked Lindsie Chrisley, who frequently appears on her family's reality show Chrisley Knows Best.
"I mean, yes and no," Kailyn said. "We go out to eat, but it's kind of hard because I have kids, I have a baby."
Kailyn is mom to a three-month-old son Lux Russell with ex Chris Lopez, as well as son Isaac Elliot, 7, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera, and son Lincoln Marshall, 4, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
Kailyn explained on the podcast that her new romance with the unidentified woman -- who, based on social-media photos, is Dominique Potter -- blossomed out of a friendship.
"We were friends for a year and so it kind of just turned into [a relationship]," Kailyn, 25, said. "So, it's not like she was trying to wine and dine me to ask me to be her girlfriend, you know what I mean? It more or less just happened."
"They say those are the best relationships," Lindsie noted.
"Well, so far so good," Kailyn said with a laugh.
Dominique has posted numerous photos of herself with Kailyn in recent weeks, including one of the pair holding hands in the car last week.
Kailyn and Dominique were spotted out together at a November charity event in Jew Jersey that benefited Puerto Rico relief efforts.
And on October 13, Dominique shared an Instagram post alongside a sweet picture of the couple, writing, "There really aren't many people on this earth that I'd do all this last minute sh-t with. Side bar- to the 5k+ followers I recently got after she posted me, y'all better use this time to comment on how poppinnnn she looked during this NYC trip."
In addition, Dominique posted a photo of herself getting Kailyn's son Isaac a haircut.
"Finally brought my dude to get his hair done by the best," she captioned the image.
Fans began speculating last year that Kailyn was interested in dating women. In June 2016, Kailyn addressed the rumors and questions by writing on Twitter, "Do I have to be gay or straight? Can't I just love people?"
Meanwhile, Kailyn's ex-husband Javi currently stars on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars with her. He claimed in October he was dating Kailyn's Teen Mom 2 co-star Briana DeJesus, but she subsequently denied they're in a relationship.
On November 12, however, Briana shared a photo of Javi and herself with the following caption that combined both of their names: "Javiana."
