‘Real World’ Star Madison Walls Confirms She’s Dating ‘Teen Mom 2’ Dad Javi Marroquin

“We’re official!”

Two MTV reality stars have made their relationship “Facebook official!”

Javi Marroquin of Teen Mom 2 is officially dating The Real World‘s Madison Walls. Madison confirmed that she and Javi are “definitely boyfriend and girlfriend” in an interview with E! News on Wednesday.

“Javi and I are definitely together,” Madison told the site.

Javi recently made his relationship official on Facebook. The pair first hinted that they may be dating last weekend, when photos of them together appeared on social media.

According to Javi, he reached out to Madison after MTV fans pointed out that they have similar stories. (Madison has a one-year-old daughter with Tony Raines, her ex-boyfriend from ‘The Real World: Skeletons’, while Javi has a young son with his ex-wife, ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Kail Lowry.)

Madison and Javi, prom-posing last weekend…

“What started off as a friendly conversation quickly turned into nonstop talking, which ultimately turned into a relationship,” E! News reported.

Their first official in-person date was last weekend, apparently.

“We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and then later I had my friends come out to meet her and we all went out and danced and drank and just had a really good time,” Javi told the site. “It was awesome.”

Madison and Javi will have quite a few challenges in their relationship, however. In addition to having to deal with their respective co-parents, Madison and Javi will have a long-distance relationship, as they live over 1,600 miles from each other. Javi is currently living in Dover, Delaware, while Madison and her daughter reside in Austin, Texas. Javi is planning to travel to Texas in April to see Madison.

“I’m really excited for him to come to Austin next month,” Madison told E! News. “I’m going to introduce him to my friends and family and [my daughter] Harper and yeah it should just be a really good time and then we are already making plans for this summer together.”

Javi says he’s not ready to introduce Madison to his son, Lincoln, though.

“I haven’t introduced her to Lincoln yet,” Javi said. “I learned from my past mistakes where I introduced him way too early on in a relationship, so now I know better.”

Before Madison, Javi had casually dated Cassie Bucka, so that may be the situation he’s referring to.

There’s no word yet if Madison will appear on the upcoming eighth season of ‘Teen Mom 2.’

  1. They haven’t even met each other’s families yet, and they are already talking to the media about their relationship? That just screams attention-seeking.

  2. No skull sleeve tattoo, water buffalo jowls, or psycho hose beast shenanigans???
    I give it a month. Maybe two if subarticle B of this PR stunt doesn’t flourish into some sort of parental rights mess.

  3. I felt sorry for Kail in the last episode. Javi was behaving like a petulant child, goading her. Really don’t like him! He is sweet with Isaac, but I can’t see their relationship lasting

  4. Is that serious about Briana???? She was awful!! Mackenzie and the one with the drugged out by were way more interesting!!! (Can’t remember the 4th TM3 girl….)

  5. Just waiting for Kail to not allow Lincoln around this girl for no reason like she did to Vee at first..all while she brought random guy(s) around the boys while still married to Javi when he was deployed ??
    And good for Javi! Talk about an upgrade..wow.

  6. I swear I read somewhere that she had a drug problem? Maybe in a previous theashley post? I hope I’m thinking of someone else.

    1. She discussed a history of drug use while she was on Real World. As far as I know, she was sober on RW and has been since her time on the show.

  7. They “date” for a month, break up. Then they get drafted on the the MTV challenge series as battle of the ex’s. Watch. He’s all into crossfit. He would probably do really well on that show.

  8. If they end up lasting, they can be like MTV’s power couple LOL. I’m glad they both got away from terrible relationships, Madison being with her cheating douche bag she calls her baby daddy (gosh, I hate that guy!), Javi recently divorced from Kailyn who treated him bad but…..I have a feeling this is just a rebound.

  9. This shit ain’t never gonna end. We will be watching these people’s poor life choices until they are in their late 30s. Except for Chelsea they will ditch her soon because really what is there to film in her life? Normal, stable, productive, boring. Clearly the right thing to do now according to the ‘Teen Mom rules for a happy life’ book is for Javi and Madison to have a baby together. He going to visit her in April, so that means we will be welcoming a new member of the TM2 cast in January!

    1. They are adding that girl from TM3 to the cast. I think it’s because they’re dropping someone and I think it’s Chelsea. Although I wish it was jenelle.

      1. They dropped Adumb and added Briana lol….but I feel like the girls are getting more and more difficult to film, so they’re bringing in dingy Briana to add the drama and pick up the slack.

      2. Ew I missed that. I hadn’t heard they are adding Briana. She is so skanky. That is gross. Wasn’t she the one that had the tape leaked of her giving her boyfriend a blowjob? Don’t understand why they would add her the show is good as it is.

  10. “hey so we got drunk together with your friends last weekend and posted some photos online.. want to meet my daughter?” good lord what an idiocit decision she’s making by wanting to introduce javi as her boyfriend to her child already!

  11. I watched Real Word Skeletons and Madison is a very sweet girl. I’m happy for them both. Although, I don’t see how it’s going to work since they both have children with other people and live in different states.

  12. As much as I would like to see all of them happy, it’s not going to last. It’s long distance. They both have children. He won’t leave Lincoln and she won’t leave because of her baby daddy. It’s puppy love. Infatuation. After a couple visits between the states it will become tiresome and difficult.

  13. I really believe there are two sides to every story when you’re getting a divorce not everything he did in his marriage to kail was right but I hope he’s found happiness because he does deserve it!

  14. oooooo Kail must be so jealous! Madison is very pretty, and she seems like a good girl….and Javi deserves a good girl, and Madison deserves a good guy after Tony (yuck). Best of luck to them!

    1. I agree. Especially since baby daddy number 3 is already gone before the baby is here. “He’s just a friend that decided to help me see if I could get pregnant again” yeah right. He was either never interested in the first place but you slept with him anyway, you scared him off already, or he could lose his job for this (looking at you JC). I think she’s introducing her daughter way to soon but Javi is good with kids (he was always there for Issac, and I’m sure he was introduced to him EXTREMELY early in that relationship) but all that said and done, they’re very cute together and I hope this hey do last and find happiness together and I hope kail enjoys her humble pie ?

  15. If this relationship takes off and they want to get married, it’s going to be a rough situation on where to live given they both have children with other people who live in or near their current states right now.
    That said she’s a total upgrade from Kailyn 100%

    1. well how about with Javi just being in the military. I’m not sure what his obligations are, but what if he’s stationed elsewhere? their marriage had trainwreck written on it from the start. a marriage out of Kail’s convenience, for sure.

    1. Agreed I am waiting for her to pull the same shit she did with Vee not allowing her to be around her kids. Where she claims it’s for their saftey but in reality she is just doing it out of spite.
