Hey, have you heard the good news?!
Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus are officially dating!
And not only that, but they seem to be comfortable enough with each other that they’re working on merging their families into one, even though they’ve only been dating approximately three seconds!
See, over the weekend, Javi threw a birthday party for Lincoln, the son he shares with Kailyn Lowry.
He invited Briana DeJesus and her two daughters, and what happened next … well, you really just have to see it to believe it.
But first, let’s refresh our memories on this very special love story …
1. They Go Way Back!
It’s true, they do — even before Briana joined the cast of Teen Mom 2, she and Javi were exchanging flirty tweets. Say what you will about their relationship, but it’s had a long, long buildup.
2. Javi’s Pursuit
Though they have known each other for a while, it wasn’t until earlier this fall when Javi really began to go after Briana hard. In September, he even gave an interview to Radar in which he said that he’d “be open to dating Briana” because “she’s a really cool girl. Her whole family is awesome. She’s really beautiful. We text back and forth. We’ll see what happens.” Subtle, Javi.
The thought of the two of them actually getting together seemed a little far-fetched. After all, Javi already married a Teen Mom when he married Kailyn, and Briana just gave birth to another guy’s baby in July. Would forming a Teen Mom super couple really be the right move?
Apparently so: in October, Javi confirmed that he and Briana were finally officially together! It was still a little weird, because she denied it at first, but it seems she’s cool with being public now. So we’re really doing Javiana, it seems.
5. Spiteful Love
As you can imagine, things didn’t go so well after the world found out about Javi and Briana’s love. Many reports claimed that Kailyn believed Javi’s just getting with Briana out of spite, and … yeah, we can see it. During this entire season of Teen Mom 2, Javi’s seemed heartbroken that Kailyn moved on so quickly, so it makes sense that he’d try to get under her skin any way possible.
6. The Thirst is Real
A lot of people think Briana isn’t with Javi for love — or not JUST for love, anyway. Some theorize that she’s trying to marry him to get his military benefits, others say that she just wants to settle down with a guy who would actually create a family with her, unlike her first two baby daddies. Others think that she’s just trying to cement her spot on Teen Mom 2 by bringing some high drama.
