Looks like there's more drama about to unfold on next season's Teen Mom 2. Reality star Javi Marroquin, who shares son Lincoln with main cast member Kailyn Lowry, is adding to the Teen Mom 2 family!
Marroquin recently revealed in a sweet Instagram post that he and girlfriend Lauren Comeau are expecting their first child together. The reality star posted a picture of him and Comeau in the background arm in arm with Comeau cradling her baby bump, while Marroquin and Lowry's son Lincoln stands smiling in the foreground, holding a strip of sonogram pictures of the baby.
Their photographer Jon Lloyd Jr. also posted another pic of the happy family referencing some Vanilla Ice in their photo.
ICE, ICE, BABY!! . Live, Laugh, Love. This sums up this photo. I am so excited for these guys! Congratulations again! . .

While currently on this season of Teen Mom 2, Marroquin can be seen romancing fellow cast member Briana DeJesus, the couple broke up in January. Marroquin and Comeau had dated from July to September 2017 and reconnected back in March after his split from DeJesus, according to RadarOnline.
The soon-to-be father of two told US Weekly that he was a bit nervous to tell his ex-wife that he and Comeau were expecting a baby together.
“Linc knew, so I didn’t want him spilling the beans before I did, but she took it well and I think we’re both at a point in our lives where we are happy for each other,” he explained. Lowry spoke to RadarOnline about the pregnancy announcement making sure they knew she wasn't in the dark. " I knew. I wish them the best. "
The reality star also admitted that he was nervous at the prospect of becoming a dad again.
“When we realized there was a possibility of having a baby, we decided to take the pregnancy test while together. I was excited at first, then got a little bit of cold feet,” Marroquin told US. “Like, I can’t believe this is happening. Lincoln is almost 5, so so many emotions going through my head.”
He also revealed upcoming plans for his new baby.
“We are gonna find out the gender and have a gender reveal planned with Linc,” he continued. “We have a solid plan of when she is coming to Delaware! As of now we’re enjoying this first one before we even think of anymore kids.”
Fans of the show know that one of the main reasons for the Marroquin and Lowry's split was Marroquin's desire to have more children. Despite Lowry maintaining she was done having children, she has since welcomed another son, Lux Russell.
In his caption on his Instagram announcement, Marroquin expressed feeling 'sad' about being hesitant to share his baby news over fear of other people's reactions. He did however say he has been 'overwhelmed' at the 'amount of love' he's received since sharing his happy news. "A baby is a blessing and I am ecstatic for the future," he wrote. "Lincoln is happy, I’m happy, and Lauren is happy."
Marroquin then posted that he was going to be leaving social media for a short while, presumably to avoid the negative comments from fans of Teen Mom 2.
Former girlfriend DeJesus told US Weekly she was very happy for her ex. “I’m happy for them. I wish them nothing but the best,” she said. “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.”
Congratulations to the new parents.
