Javi Marroquin and Madison Walls Confirm They’re Dating, Reveal How They Met
Contemplate no more, ladies and gents — Javi Marroquin and Madison Channing Walls are really an item.
The MTV reality stars got everyone talking earlier this week when they each posted cuddly photos on their respective Instagrams, but some thought it was only for attention.
Now, however, the Teen Mom 2 dad and the Real World alum are setting the record straight, revealing their relationship is in fact legit. Plus, the story of how they met is too cute!
First things first, Madison tells it like it is — she and Javi are the real deal.
"Javi and I are definitely together," the 27-year-old tells E! News. "We are definitely boyfriend and girlfriend."
Guess they’ve already had “the talk!”
So, how’d they meet?
The good old-fashioned way — via social media.
Madison reveals she made the first move by direct messaging the Air Force man on Instagram.
Apparently, fans of their shows told her she should give it a shot since they have a lot in common.
Both had rough breakups play out on reality TV, both are single parents, and both are looking for love!
So, after some flirty conversations, the couple met up in Philadelphia for a romantic dinner, where they later hung out with some of his pals.
"We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and then later I had my friends come out to meet her and we all went out and danced and drank and just had a really good time," Javi recalls. "It was awesome."
Though they haven’t introduced each other to their kids just yet, Lincoln’s dad is planning a visit to Madison’s hometown of Austin, Texas, next month, where she lives with her 1-year-old daughter Harper.
And they’re apparently already making plans to visit each other this summer, too!
Finally, for the one million dollar question — does Kailyn Lowry know about her ex-husband’s new-found love?
"Kail knows about the relationship for sure," Javi says of his pregnant ex.
"I'm happy for Kail. I wish her nothing but the best and health and wellness and all of that stuff you know? I'm here for her. We actually are in a good place and I just want health for her and the baby.”
The 23-year-old also says Lincoln was the one who told him about Kail’s pregnancy. Awkward.
Ok, Kailyn — now it’s your turn to unveil your baby daddy’s identity!
Do you think Javi and Madison are legit? Are you happy he’s finally moving on as much as Kailyn has? Leave a comment below.
Part 2 of the Teen Mom 2 reunion airs Monday, March 27 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
