Javi Marroquin: A Complete Timeline of the ‘Teen Mom 2’ Dad’s Many Romances

“Hello there, ladies!”

Javi Marroquin shocked Teen Mom 2 fans last week by announcing that his on-again girlfriend of a few months, Lauren Comeau, is pregnant with the couple’s first child. Over the past few years, the ‘Teen Mom 2’ dad’s love life has been an interesting–and somewhat confusing–intersection of short-lived loves.

To help trace Javi’s trail to finding his second baby mama, we’ve prepared a timeline of Javi’s romances, starting with the “boo” that  put him on TV– ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Kail Lowry–and ending with his baby mama-to-be, Lauren! 

Kail Lowry

2011: Javi meets Kail at the Buckle store she’s working at in the local mall. Javi tries to woo Kail (presumably by reciting Drake lyrics to her), but she is initially not interested.

“I turned him down!” Kail wrote on Twitter back in 2012. “Anyway, from there he came into Buckle again and we started forming a friendship via Twitter and Buckle visits. Eventually, I gave him my number.”

December 2011: Javi gets his first taste of real fame when photos of him kissing Kail make headlines worldwide. UK news site The Daily Mail calls Javi Kail’s “mystery man.”

January 2012: Javi and Kail are officially “a thing.”

September 4, 2012: Javi and Kail get hitched—officially—in a no-frills ceremony at a Pennsylvania courthouse.

September 15, 2012: Even though they are already secretly married, Kail announces that she is officially engaged to Javi. ‘Teen Mom 2’ viewers eventually get to see the proposal play out on the show, with Javi taking Kail to her hometown and having her young son, Isaac, help him pop the question. News of Kail and Javi’s secret marriage breaks in November 2012.

Still Kail…

September 21, 2013: Javi and Kail have another wedding ceremony at a New Jersey aquarium. This ceremony and reception is filmed and later shown on ‘Teen Mom 2.’

November 2013: Javi and Kail welcome their first and only child together, son Lincoln.

Late 2015: Although accounts vary, Javi and Kail both state that they had split before Javi left for deployment in Qatar in January 2016. The separation papers were filed in December 2015.

May 2016: Kail confirms—after being ambushed by paparazzi— that she and Javi are, indeed, in the process of getting divorced.

August 2016: Javi reveals that he is beginning to date again, and confesses to being a relationship-aholic.

“I love to love,” he told Radar Online. “I love sharing experiences with one person.”

November 2016: Kail and Javi are not considering getting back together, but they still appear together on ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars’ to work on their “co-parenting” relationship.

Cassie Bucka

December 2016: Javi starts dating Cassie Bucka, though their relationship did not last more than a month. In January 2017, Javi confirmed to Radar that his new romance was already over.

“She’s amazing, but Cassie has been really hurt in the past so it’s hard for her to not think that she’ll be hurt again. I don’t think she was ready for everything to come at her at once,” he told the outlet at the time. “She’s an amazing girl though and if she ever does allow someone to love her that’ll be a lucky guy. I hope it’ll be me, but not right now I guess.”

Madison Channing-Walls

March 2017: Javi didn’t waste any time moving on after splitting from Cassie. He confirmed his relationship with ‘Real World’ alum Madison Channing Walls shortly after his breakup with Cassie. Javi told tabloids that he felt he had a real future with Madison, who is a single mom to daughter Harper.

“I haven’t introduced [Madison] to [my son] Lincoln yet. I learned from my past mistakes where I introduced him way too early on in a relationship, so now I know better,” Javi told E! News.

Madison added, “I’m really excited for him to come to Austin next month. 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. ”

April 2017: Those “summer plans” were not meant to be, because the couple didn’t last long enough! They called it quits after only two weeks of dating.

“The biggest thing was I had a hard time reading motives and intentions, so when things started coming out in the tabloids, there were a lot of things I didn’t know about,” Javi explained on a ‘Teen Mom’ After Show.

“I guess she had a past, she overcame that past, and she didn’t tell me about,” he added of her previous battle with heroin addiction.

Lauren Comeau, Part 1

July 2017: Javi meets Lauren Comeau at a wedding, and the two quickly begin dating.

“This one’s definitely a keeper I can tell,” Javi says at the time. “We wanted to keep as much private as possible.”

About September 2017: Javi and Lauren end their relationship sometime in or around September, as they were long-distance dating, and Lauren struggled to deal with Javi’s reality TV fame.

Late September/ Early October 2017: Rumors start flying that Javi and his ‘Teen Mom 2’ co-star Briana DeJesus are more than “just friends,” especially after Javi and Briana (and their kids and Bri’s ever-present family) all go on vacation together in Orlando. (Kail gets upset when Leah Messer reports back that Briana told her that she and Javi were staying together in Orlando. The event would go on to become known as “HotelGate” to some ‘Teen Mom’ fans.)

Javi seems to be trying to decide between dating Briana and trying to get back with Lauren.

“I’m trying to get Lauren back and then Briana came out haha but it’s fine,” Javi told In Touch. “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.”

Briana DeJesus

Mid-October 2017: Javi and Briana make things official after meeting up at the ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 8A Reunion taping. Madness ensues between Javi, Briana, Kail and Kail’s friends, and between Briana and Leah over Hotelgate. Javi and Briana deny publicly that they are dating for a few days, but finally confirm that they’re dating.

November 2017: Javi tells a news outlet that his relationship with Briana is “getting serious,” as both go back and forth between Florida and Delaware, visiting each other.

It’s somewhere around here that Javi tells people he is planning to propose to Briana.

December 27, 2017: Briana confirms that things are going well with Javi.

“We are making plans toward our future. Our relationship has been great thus far,” Briana told Us Weekly, adding that her mother is questioning Javi’s intentions.

“She just wants to make sure Javi’s intentions are true and not just for TV. She’s my mother and wants to protect me but we are all fine,” Briana said.

Mid-January 2018: Javi and Briana confirm that they have ended their relationship. Eventually, both confirm that Briana’s upcoming (and very public) plastic surgery with Dr. Miami played a big part in the death of “Javiana!”

“Javi and I are not together anymore,” Briana told Blasting News. “Our future just doesn’t line up. He doesn’t want me to get my surgery for a breast lift, lipo and tummy tuck (which I’m doing in two weeks) because it’ll look bad on his name at work.”

“I didn’t agree with some of her future plans being exposed for the world to see for our future and any future employers and I wish we could’ve compromised. Maybe I was overthinking but I couldn’t figure out a way to answer some of those questions,” Javi said.

Briana also stated that Javi was in too big of a rush to “wife” her.

“I don’t plan on moving in with him in the summer and for these reasons, he broke up with me,” she said. “I have no bad things to say to about him. He wanted a wife and home right now and I didn’t see a reason to rush. I wish him the best going forward, and I am sad things panned out this way, but this is where things currently stand.”

Kail again…kind of…

February or March 2018: Javi and Kail hook up one time. (Kail admitted this on-stage in May while taping the yet-to-be-aired ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 8B Reunion.)

March 1, 2018: Javi and Kail seem to be playing with the idea of getting back together, and Javi even fueled those rumors during an interview on March 1 with a ‘Teen Mom’-themed podcast.

“We have our own private discussions, me and her,” Javi said on the podcast. “But a lot happened between us in the past. On my behalf, I’ve moved on from all of that…it’s just me, Kail and the boys.”

Kail quickly shut down the reconciliation rumors.

A few days ago, Kail discussed this period on Twitter.

“Javi & I talked about getting back together at one point,” she wrote on June 4. “Why? I don’t know because we both knew we didn’t want to & it would never work. I regret even having those conversations. I regret filming about it. And hooking up w/ him as I know people from the reunion leaked that.”

Lauren Comeau, Part 2

March 15, 2018: Javi confirms that he is back together with his ex-girlfriend Lauren Comeau.

“I want to do things differently,” he told Radar Online at the time. “I just want to enjoy it. She’s the only girl that’s been on no TV. It’s just real stuff.”

One day earlier, Lauren shared a photo of herself with Javi, along with the caption, “Sometimes, two people have to fall apart to realize how much they need to fall back together.”

Excited about this journey with you @lauren3elizabeth

June 2018: Kail and Briana react publicly to Javi and Lauren’s baby news.

“I already knew that was going to happen because he wanted to get married and start a family right away,” Briana told Radar.

“I am wishing him and his new family the best,” Kail told Us Weekly after the announcement. I have no hard feelings about the baby whatsoever despite what people are saying.”

  1. Out of all the TM dads who either divorced or ended their relationships (Ryan, Gary, Adam, Corey, Jeremy, Jo, Andrew, Nathan) Javi is the ONLY one who immediately chatted up another cast member –instead of looking ELSEWHERE to date.

    Which says to me, that among other things, he just loves staying “relevant” in story lines while soaking up the MTV limelight, and of course the money train that comes along with it.

    So if that means now self-casting himself in the pseudo-profitable role of “Teen Mom Resident Romeo & Fame Ho,” then I guess so be it.

    Shame because amongst all the dads, he was “once” one of my absolute faves.


  2. ‘Loves to love’ is about right. Damn Javi, keep it in your pants dude.
    On another note, I didn’t realise it had been that long since Kail and Javi split up?! & still taking jabs at each other…


  3. Exactly. People get such a hate on for Kail that they make Javi out to be a saint. Especially b/c he’s in the military. Javi did a whole ton of shady things during their relationship but everyone blasts every tiny little thing Kail does and ignores what Javi did. If I was Kail I’d be using that podcast and telling everyone the truth. She only doesn’t b/c they have Lincoln together. He even admitted to the majority of it eventually. And he uses his military/deployments for attention and sympathy constantly and thinks it gives him a free pass to be a possessive slimeball. He cries and acts all hurt when a girl doesn’t give in to his demands – meanwhile he admits on the after show that he was with Kail, Briana, and Lauren all at the same time. At the reunion he was LIVING for the drama he was stirring up with Briana and Kail. His eyes were gleaming. He’s a wimpy immature attention whore.


  4. You forgot one. There was this dark haired girl that was his friend in the army and was in his bed while deployed. Kail responded ‘it is what it is’.
    The first weekend Javi was home, he was on a date. Not sure that was her.
    Later he posted a picture with her and told the press they had become more than friends. They didn’t last long.
    Everyone thought Kail cheated while he was deployed but they had already separated and he was also seeying others.


  5. I remember Roxanne thinking Javi is using Briana for fame, hahahaha. He was here first! If anyone used anyone, it was her! She got in the show just cuz she had an unplanned pregnancy AGAIN, lbr.

    Javi, Javi. How about being SINGLE for a while? Oh nevermind, you have another kid on the way with someone you barely know. Worked pretty well the last time, didn’t it?!


    1. We hope she’s sane. She did get knocked up but Javi almost immediately, which doesn’t say much about her judgment. Javi’s life is messy and he obviously wasn’t very committed to her.


    2. No one knows anything about her though – just b/c she looks like a typical All-American girl, doesn’t mean she’s stable and sane.


  6. Uhm Javi, how in the freaking world can you say you didn’t know about Madison’s past? If you watch The Real World then you would know that she battled with addiction. Javi doesn’t have room to talk though, because I honestly and truly do think he is a relationship-addict. He can’t be by himself and instead of him and Lauren rushing to move in they should continue to take it slow. A baby does not mean that you have to move in with each other and get married. They haven’t even been dating that long. Javi needs to take a pause and try to better himself and be alone before trying to be with someone else. Betting that they don’t last too long.


    1. He moves so fast he doesn’t even know anything about these girls before declaring them his girlfriend and saying they’re in a serious relationship. He’s crazy. I mean ask the girl a few questions on your first date before moving in together Javi. Or even google them if you’re that much in a rush.


  7. Anyone else notice in this article that it’s broken down, and reiterated, that Kail and Javi were SEPARATED prior to him deploying? Javi just wouldn’t shut up about her cheating on him while deployed for sympathy and attention. Not a fan of Kail, but people try to defend Javi’s chaos and attention seeking ways all the time but he’s just as bad as Kail.


    1. Kail has always maintained that they were separated before his deployment and how Javi has cheated on her before (which he admitted once some photos leaked of him in random chicks dms). I think people just hate her so much that they overlook the error of his ways.


      1. Yes, Kail always stated that they were separated prior, it was Javi who brought it up continuously on “Marriage Boot Camp”. He denies wrongdoing unless he’s backed into a corner.


  8. How does Briana getting plastic surgery make him look bad when he’s already acting like an idiot on TV? He makes himself look bad.


  9. Why is Javi getting a free pass?? We even heard Dr Drew address this and ask if he was an addict to relationships (and probably wanting to achieve what he finally did with Lauren). He’s sneaky and hides things. Kail has never spilled on him and she very well could (not sticking up for Kail either). This guy always has a female on the back burner besides whom he’s dating. It’s really sad when you think about it.


  10. The little bit I’ve seen with his sister on the show it seemed like she’s the kind that would put him in his place and snap him out of it real quick. But like sis where are you? Javi’s trying to impregnate everyone lol


  11. So within a year – Javi has introduced FOUR different women to Lincoln, and is now giving him a sibling by one. Kail has also given him another half-sibling. I feel like this poor kid is gonna have such a skewed view of relationships when he gets older.. Shit. Hope they all can make this algebra equation of a family tree/custody agreements work out for these kid’s sake!


  12. He is straight up insane. It’s like he’s addicted to nailing down a wife, kids, dog, and a white picket fence.

    I wonder if he’s ever gone on a couple dates with someone and decided it wasn’t right, like everyone else does. It’s almost like every time he meets ANY girl, he wants to be in a relationship with her – period. Not a girl he clicks with, not a girl he has things in common with, not a girl he likes being around, not a girl that’s his type — just ANY girl. How do you even know who you like or don’t like after one date?! This guy’s ready to propose by date 3! He’s a mess.


    1. I started to notice something was off with him when he demanded all of kail’s passwords. He’s not right in the head and seems extremely needy and obsessive. I’m not saying kail is perfect, but people seemed to overlook how weird he acted with her. He makes terrible decisions in life. I would actually compare him to jenelle. Like, the way she had a baby so fast with Nathan. It’s crazy!


      1. I was done when he freaked out over Jo and Kail sitting on the porch talking about Isaac. All the macho “this is my house – how dare another man come talk to you when I’m not there” bs was it for me. The idea that he needs to be present every single time Kail and Jo discussed their child was some Unvle David level nonsense. Basically, his overall treatment of Jo while he was still with Kail bothered me. He was very quick to try to cut Jo out and nit pick over everything Jo did. He’s lucky Jo is a stand-up guy and wasn’t petty about Isaac.


    1. The scenes of the supposed beginning of their relationship were all fake to set up the storyline. They had already been together a while when they filmed the bowling thing and the lunch thing.

      Just like they were already legally separated when he was deployed, even though the show made it look like they were still together and Kail cheated.


    2. I think they might of played that out like their first date. She wrote about him stalking her at buckle in her book.


  13. can you imagine the logistic nightmare if these kids want to be with every sibling?graduations,weddings,birthdays..can you imagine if they did a roadside switcheroo a la leah and her baby daddies?


  14. I think he’s desperate for love. He’s such a serial cheater, he doesn’t seem to have a type so seems to date any and everything…it’s kinda gross.


  15. JAVI IS TEXT BOOK DEFINTITON OF AN ADDICT. SEX OR REALTIONSHIP, don’t matter, he’s it. These girls are crazy falling for his so called love. He’s always had more than 1 in the works at any given time and knows how to play it.


  16. I would rather see a timeline of Kailyn. The truth about her dating. Not the made up one that she spills. There’s nothing wrong with dating but cheating, having multiple babies by multiple men is another story. Iam sure Kailyn’s DR. Miami ass is still burning from all the tea Dom spilt on her lap. ☕️


    1. Javi admitted on the after shows that he cheated on Lauren and Briana. And if guys were the ones to get pregnant, he’d have multiple babies by multiple women. He’s the same as Kail if not worse.
