Teen Mom 2 dad Javi Marroquin is officially a father of two!
Radar Online reports that Javi’s girlfriend Lauren Comeau gave birth to the couple’s son this afternoon at Dover Kent General Hospital in Delaware—two weeks before Lauren’s December 1 due date.
“Mom and baby are doing great,” Javi told the site. “It was me, her mother and her sister-in-law in the delivery room. We still haven’t decided on a name!”
Javi revealed this afternoon that big brother Lincoln (whom he shares with ex-wife Kailyn Lowry) was on the way to the hospital to meet his 6 pound, 13 ounce baby brother.
(Baby Marroquin is Javi’s second child and Lauren’s first.)
As The Ashley previously reported, Javi and Lauren announced they were expecting in May… just months after he and ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Briana DeJesus had called it quits.
Given his habit of short-lived romances over the years, Javi even acknowledged his haters in the announcement that he and Lauren were expecting.
“Been kinda quiet lately for many reasons,” he posted to social media in May. “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.”
Javi and Lauren had dated briefly prior to Javi and Briana’s relationship/storyline. The two went on to rekindle their romance in March of this year and in July, they revealed they were expecting a baby boy during a soccer-themed gender reveal.
UPDATE! Javi told Radar on Friday that he and Lauren named their son Eli Joseph Marroquin.
