#Javiana is official! Kailyn Lowry’s ex Javi Marroquin has just confirmed that he is now dating Kail’s Teen Mom 2 co-star Briana DeJesus!
The confirmation comes via People. Javi spoke with the magazine and flatly stated “We are dating.” The two reunited over the weekend in Los Angeles for the Reunion taping and apparently decided to finally take things to the next level — after teasing fans for months. “We’ve been friends for a while and we weren’t in a rush,” Javi adds.
People says they reached out to Briana and MTV for comment, but have gotten no response.
Javi and Briana shared numerous photos together over the weekend, and I have to admit they do make a great looking couple. Here’s an album of photos posted by Javi which he captioned by writing “I have a 6 pack from laughing so hard these last couple of days.” He also included #BAE in his string of hash tags:
Briana also shared a couple photos with Javi (below) and simply captioned them “Daddy Javi ?” and “Daddy Javi p2.”
Fans may recall that Javi seemed extra fond of the DeJesus family when the cast last got together in California. Briana was still pregnant at the time, and Javi revealed that her mother had actually tried to get them together. “Your mom tried hooking me and Briana up,” Javi told Brittany, “but she’s pregnant now, so that’s kind of out the window.”
Well, Briana’s not pregnant any more, and it looks like Javi jumped right back through that open window!
The dating rumors really heated up this summer when Javi and the DeJesus sisters met up in New York City — especially after Javi posted this photo looking as though he had slid past the friend zone:
Less than a week after posting that photo, Javi took his son Lincoln and Kail’s son Isaac down to Florida and met up with Briana and the DeJesus gals for some slightly more family-oriented fun:
So how will this relationship work given that Briana is in Florida and Javi is in Delaware? Briana may have answered that question on Twitter during a conversation with Teen Mom OG star Tyler Baltierra:
Yeah right, you live in Florida ?

I might end up somewhere in Delaware sooooo ?

The reactions to Briana’s tweet was a pretty even mix of animated gifs showing shock, and animated gifs of people doing eye rolls. I suppose we will know which animated gif was more accurate over the next few months! (The whole dynamic of Teen Mom 2 would certainly change if two of the cast members lived near each other with one dating the other’s ex!)
So what do you think? Are Javi and Briana REALLY REALLY dating? And if so, do you give their relationship a swipe left or swipe right?
UPDATE – Judging from Briana’s tweets the day after Javi’s announcement, it appears that she may not have known about his plan to go public. “Lmao I woke up to some nonsense this morning omggggggg,” she tweeted first thing Wednesday. In a series of deleted tweets, she responded to a lot of the reactions to drama between her and her Teen Mom 2 co-stars — especially Leah Messer — but didn’t go too much into #Javiana. She did clarify their intimacy level however: “I’m not even f**king javi so how is he being passed around? Get real and ppl gotta stop geing so sensitive.”
