'Teen Mom 2': Pregnant Kailyn Lowry joins placenta-eating bandwagon

kaily-lowry-pregnant-placenta-twitter.jpgPregnant "Teen Mom 2" star  Kailyn Lowry will follow in the footsteps of her reality star peers, Kim Kardashian and Holly Madison, by eating her own placenta after giving birth to her second child.

"Just paid for my placenta to be encapsulated," Lowry tweets. The 21-year-old reportedly paid $200 to have her placenta formulated into pills, which she will pop for the alleged post-partum benefits like hormone balancing and energy restoration.

Kardashian opted to eat her own placenta in a -- possibly misguided -- quest for the fountain of youth, and Madison said before giving birth she hoped placenta pills would aid her body in recovering from the pregnancy.

Another reality star, Tamera Mowry-Housely took the placenta trend in a bizarre direction, opting to have her twin sister Tia Mowry sample the goods. Blech.

Lowry announced in March she is expecting her second child with husband  Javi Marroquin.
