Teen Mom 2‘s Javi Marroquin made headlines in late May 2018 when he announced that he and his girlfriend, Lauren Comeau, were expecting a child together. The baby will be the second for Marroquin who already shares a son, Lincoln, with his ex-wife, Kailyn Lowry.

Following the baby bombshell, everyone was wondering what Lowry and Marroquin’s other ex, co-star Briana DeJesus, thought about all this. Here’s the surprising thing Lowry revealed following the announcement (page 6), as well as how DeJesus reacted to the news (page 5), plus the messages Marroquin got from a few other Teen Mom stars.

Marroquin and Comeau announced the news on their social media accounts on May 30. Although Marroquin didn’t give a due date, he did reveal that they knew for some time but waited to share it with everyone.

“I was sad I couldn’t share the good news because I was afraid of what people would say,” he wrote on Instagram. “I realized no negative comment will take this moment away from us. A baby is a blessing and I am ecstatic for the future.”

Fans had speculated that DeJesus was pregnant

Marroquin received a bit of backlash following the news because his split from DeJesus wasn’t that long ago. Not only that, but while they were together, the two had some fans thinking that they were going to start a family of their own.

Those rumors only intensified when one of DeJesus’ followers speculated in December 2017 that she was pregnant with Marroquin’s baby. The mother of two responded with “not yet” implying that they were indeed trying to have a baby.

DeJesus, who split from Marroquin just a few months before this announcement, reacted to the news with a statement to Us Weekly.

“I’m happy for them. I wish them nothing but the best,” she said. Some fans, however, questioned if DeJesus was really being sincere or was actually bitter that he got someone else pregnant so quickly after their split.

She responded directly to those rumors saying, “I don’t wish it was my baby … All he wanted was a family and he got it. So good for him. Like I said, I’m sending my best wishes and have no hard feelings.”

Next: Lowry confirmed her own surprising news.

Lowry also commented on the baby news and said that she too wishes her ex-husband “the best.” But some followers thought that she was sending cryptic messages when she tweeted about regretting choices she made and “too many things happening at one time.”

Lowry later set the record straight tweeting, “I am wishing him and his new family the best. I have no hard feelings about the baby whatsoever despite what people are saying.”

She also confirmed the recent reports that she and Marroquin had hooked up after his relationship with DeJesus ended and even talked about getting back together, but realized that neither one of them wanted that.
