“Teen Mom 2” is a reality television show that follows the lives of its teen cast members as they navigate their first years of motherhood. The show also focuses on changing their relationships with their family, friends, and boyfriends. Rivera was only 18 years old when his son, Isaac, was born. Unfortunately, he and Isaac’s mother, Lowry, had a hard time on the show and the tension got the better of their relationship resulting in their emotional breakup in 2010. Rivera started dating Torres after that and they got married in 2011 and welcomed a daughter in 2015, Velisse “Vivi” Rivera. After Lowry moved to Delaware, Rivera and his new family followed so he could still be close to his son. In 2020, Rivera and Lowry were in a custody battle over their son and it seems that Rivera won judging from his Instagram profile with photos of the family together.
Although Rivera and Lowry have had their ups and downs, especially during the making of their season of “Teen Mom 2,” it seems as though they have worked through their differences for the most part and that they can share their time with Isaac effectively.
