TEEN Mom star Javi Marroquin has fans wondering if he rekindled his romance with his ex-fiancée, Lauren Comeau, after the pair reunited for an outing with their kids.
The reality star shared the sweet snap on his Instagram Stories.

There appeared to be no bad blood between Javi, 29, and Lauren, 30, as they enjoyed a family night at the NBA finals with their boys.
The former couple smiled for the shot as their 3-year-old son Eli sat on his dad’s shoulders.
Javi’s oldest son, Lincoln, eight, who he shares with his ex-wife, Kailyn Lowry, 30, also attended the event and posed in the photo.
Social media users were shocked at the reunion as Javi and Lauren weren’t on the best terms in the past.
“I hope she didn’t go back to this little troll. Lauren huneyyyyyyy just use him like how he used you!” one person commented.
“I had no idea they were still together. How could anyone stay with Javi after watching the show?” another remarked.
Others, however, weren’t convinced that the exes were back together.
“I don’t think they are together, but this is not about coparenting either…it’s toxic and damaging, especially to those kids involved,” one said.
“I have a feeling if they were back together neither of them would post it on social media. This is just them coparenting if I had to guess,” a second fan theorized.
“Eh if they aren’t together honestly nothing wrong with this, good for them to coparent for that little guy.
“If she ever gets back with him however, she’s big dumb,” a third added.
The ex-couple had been on and off since 2017, splitting ways temporarily when the MTV star dated Teen Mom’s Briana DeJesus, 28.
The duo reconciled in March 2018 and announced their pregnancy weeks later.
Javi and Lauren welcomed their son Eli in November of 2019, but less than a year afterward, their relationship was hit with a cheating scandal.
The mother of one caught her baby daddy naked with another woman in their Delaware home during a party with friends.
The controversial father later took to Instagram to issue a public apology, writing: “Lauren, I’m sorry for my mistakes, I’m sorry I broke your heart, I’m sorry I disrespected you. I’m sorry I took you for granted. I could say sorry for a million other things but I’m sorry will never be enough.
“I hurt the one person that I love the most. I will do everything in my power to become a better man and hopefully one day you can forgive me. I’ll do anything to have you home.”
She took him back weeks later, but they split for good when his ex-Kailyn revealed on Teen Mom 2 in 2020 that he tried to have sex with her.
Things turned even uglier when Javi filed a restraining order against his ex-fiancée in June 2021.
Javi accused Lauren of hitting “him in front of their” son.
In the report, Javi claimed: “Respondent assaulted me in front of our children, I worry she will come to my house and assault me again and/or try to take our son.
“She has assaulted me on multiple occasions and due to my career I want to protect my job and kids.”
Javi continued: “Verbal argument she closed fist punched me several times. She snatched my gold chain off my neck. Our [then] 2-year-old son was present and witnessed.”
A temporary order of protection from abuse was granted since the court felt the “respondent has committed an act of domestic violence against the petitioner and further finds that there is an immediate and present danger of additional acts of violence.”
Lauren was ordered by the court to stay 100 feet away from her baby daddy, his residence, and his workplace and was only allowed to contact him by text or email regarding Eli.
Then on June 22, 2021, Javi filed to voluntarily dismiss the petition as he claimed he no longer felt “threatened by my son’s mother. I believe we can handle any altercation that arises.”
The former partners currently shares 50/50 custody of their toddler.
