Kailyn Lowry’s ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, is going to be a dad again! Just 2 months after rekindling a romance with his is ex, the two are expecting their 1st baby together! Find out what Kailyn had to say here.
Well that was quick! Javi Marroquin, 25, confirmed via Instagram on May 30 that he and his girlfriend, Lauren Cameau, are pregnant! The reality star is known for his role on Teen Mom 2 and for marrying Kailyn Lowry, 26, in 2012. And while the two share one son together, 4-year-old Lincoln Marshall Marroquin, Javi is super psyched about becoming a two-time dad. The wildest part? Javi and Lauren have only been dating for three months total!
“A baby is a blessing and I am ecstatic for the future. Lincoln is happy, I’m happy, and Lauren is happy,” Javi wrote in his lengthy social media post, which was accompanied by an adorable photo of the three of them. “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.”
We love how Lincoln was in on the announcement too, as he held four sonograms and wore a shirt that read “Super Big Bro” in the photo. Meanwhile, Lauren’s sizable baby bump is totally visible in her form-fitting dress. “Gonna go on a little hiatus from social media to take all this in and enjoy it with my family and loved ones,” Javi continued. “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.”

In reaction to the exciting news, Kailyn reportedly told Radar Online, “I knew. I wish them the best.” Kailyn and Javi announced their divorce in May 2016. He then started dating Lauren in September 2017, but they briefly broke up. At that point, Javi moved on to fellow Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus, whom he ended up dating from October 2017 to January 2018. He and Lauren rekindled their romance in March.
Before Javi and Briana broke up though, the father-to-be was SUPER close to proposing! On a May episode of Teen Mom 2, Javi pulled out a diamond ring while talking to his sister. “Briana really loves me and I see that,” he said. However, his sister was quick to tell him that he was moving way too fast. Clearly Javi is a romantic at heart!
