There's a new baby coming!
At this point in most of the Teen Mom stars’ lives, pregnancy announcements are to be expected. Many of the cast members are in stable relationships or married, and on top of the fact that they all have homes and stable incomes, they’re all also well into their twenties! That means that a pregnancy won’t shake up their lives nearly as much as it did when they were sixteen.
But there are still bound to be some pregnancies that totally shock fans. When Amber Portwood announced she was pregnant by her new man, Andrew Glennon, fans were completely blindsided. Now, Javi Marroquin is giving her a run for her money!
When Javi got back together with his ex-girlfriend, fans were surprised they were able to work things out. Still, no one was entirely sure they’d be in it for the long haul.
Well, now they absolutely will be! Javi has just revealed that he’s gotten his girlfriend pregnant. We know Kailyn’s not going to be too happy about this!
Keep reading to check out a behind-the-scenes take on Javi’s secret relationship!
Right now, Kailyn Lowry has a very blended family. She has three sons (Isaac, Lincoln, and Lux) all of whom have different fathers (Jo Rivera, Javi Marroquin, and Chris Lopez). This means her children have a lot of half-siblings, step-parents, and a very wide and growing family tree. Now, there’s one more little baby who will be joining the equation.
Of course, it takes two to tango. So who is his baby mama?
Off and On
Javi Marroquin has locked it down with his on-and-of girlfriend, Lauren Comeau. Fans will recall that his previous relationship with her put some tension on his co-parenting relationship with Kailyn.
The two began dating long-distance after meeting at a wedding. Javi was in Delaware while his bae lived in Charleston, South Carolina. “We met at one of our best friend’s weddings,” Javi told Radar Online. “She was the maid of honor.” He revealed that their relationship was “fairly new” but that he “[didn’t] feel that way.” (We all know that Javi is an expert of moving super fast in relationships.) “This one feels right. We decided we’d give it a try officially at the wedding this past weekend.” Lauren was also the fourth girl he dated in the year after he split from Kailyn.
Unfortunately, their relationship didn’t last very long. The stress of having a public relationship was too much for Lauren, and the couple split in September of 2017.
“I love Lauren, but unfortunately it didn’t work out,” Javi informed Radar. “I’m learning not everyone wants the attention. Dating someone on a TV show is tough. I think Lauren had a hard time adjusting to that and I had a hard time understanding that.”
“It was a lot for her and we couldn’t fix it,” he explained. “I learned for my next relationship that I have to put myself in the other person’s shoes.”
But he made it clear that he wasn’t totally over Lauren. “I never believed in love at first sight, but when I saw Lauren I definitely did,” he said. “I’m hoping Lauren and I can figure this out because she made me the happiest I’ve ever been.”
Javi isn’t very good at being single for long stretches of time, and when he and Lauren broke up, he soon began dating Briana DeJesus. We all know how that went down, and it wasn’t pretty. And it was only a few months before Javi got back together with Lauren. He shared a picture of them embracing and wrote, “Sometimes, two people need to fall apart to realize how much they need to fall back together.”
Even though they only got together two months ago, they clearly didn’t waste any time. Javi has just confirmed to Radar that his girlfriend Lauren is pregnant (yes, with his child).
“Blessings on top of blessings,” Javi wrote on a picture of him cradling Lauren’s baby bump on his private Facebook page. Lauren wrote, “Sometimes life’s biggest blessings come in the smallest packages. Baby Marroquin coming soon!”
He took to Instagram to write:
“Been kinda quiet lately for many reasons. I was sad I couldn’t share the good news because I was afraid of what people would say. The amount of love I’ve received is so overwhelming and so appreciated. I realized No negative comment will take this moment away from us. A baby is a blessing and I am ecstatic for the future. Lincoln is happy, I’m happy, and Lauren is happy. Gonna go on a little hiatus from social media to take all this in and enjoy it with my family and loved ones. For those sending love, thank you! We appreciate it. And to you @lauren3elizabeth thank you for blessing me with another child. We are gonna be amazing parents together.”
4-year-old Lincoln was also in the announcement. He held four sonograms and wore a shirt that read “Super Big Bro.”
As for Kailyn, her response was short: “I knew,” she told Radar. “I wish them the best.”
But fans weren’t able to keep it so concise.
