The Teen Mom 2 star announced his baby news on his personal Facebook along with a photo of his four-year-old son, Lincoln Marshall Marroquin, holding four songram photos of the baby while wearing a T-shirt that read, “Super Big Bro.”
“Blessings on top of blessings,” Javi wrote in the caption of his photo announcement, as reported by Radar Online.

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 And thank you @jonlloydjr capturing this moment for us
“Sometimes life’s biggest blessings come in the smallest packages,” Lauren added on her own page. “Baby Marroquin coming soon!”
Javi shares his older son with ex-wife Kailyn Lowry, who recently admitted that the two of them attempted to reconcile their marriage months ago.
In response to Javi’s baby news, Kailyn told Radar, “I knew. I wish them the best.”
Prior to his March reunion with Lauren, Javi dated his Teen Mom 2 co-star, Briana DeJesus, for several months. However, after splitting from Lauren in 2017, Javi made it clear that he was hoping they would ultimately reconcile.
“I love Lauren, but unfortunately it didn’t work out,” he said at the time of their split. “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… I never believed in love at first sight, but when I saw Lauren I definitely did. I’m hoping Lauren and I can figure this out because she made me the happiest I’ve ever been.”
