Just when you thought the drama surrounding Briana DeJesus and Javi Marroquin's relationship couldn't get any more intense ...
Fans are now convinced that Briana is pregnant with Javi's baby.
The rumor began spreading within hours of news that Javi will soon be deployed with the US Air Force for a second tour of duty.
So will Kailyn Lowry's ex-husband and the father of her second child be greeted by a new bundle of joy when he returns to the States?
We did some investigating, and here's what we found...
Briana and Javi went from a "friends with benefits" arrangement to a serious relationship in record time. Recently, the Teen Mom 2 co-stars began declaring their love for one another on social media.
It was initially rumored that the couple began hooking up to exact revenge on Javi's ex and Briana's rival, Kailyn Lowry. Javi and Bri may have had spite on their minds at first, but that doesn't seem to be the case any longer...
These days, Briana and Javi's relationship is moving at breakneck speed. In fact, it seems they're already planning to take several major steps forward together.
In a recent social media exchange, Briana stated that she's planning to move to Delaware to be closer to Javi.
After making their relationship "Instagram official" the two were chided by TM2 costar Tyler Baltierra, who commented, "Yeah right, you live in Florida." Briana responded, "I might end up somewhere in Delaware sooooo."
But are Javi and Briana already expecting a child together? Briana took to social media to address the persistent rumor this week...
"This Time Will Be Different"
Javi and Kailyn's marriage fell apart almost immediately after he returned from his first deployment. Marroquin recently tweeted that he's confident things will be different this time.
Briana echoed the sentiment, and when a fan suggested that she's pregnant with Javi's baby. DeJesus replied in intriguing fashion...
More Serious Than We Thought...
So it looks like Briana isn't currently carrying Javi's child. But it also looks like she's planning to in the near future.
They Still Have Time
Fans have been buzzing about the possibility of Briana getting pregnant before Javi ships out. Interestingly, the couple has yet to refute rumors that they're trying for a baby.
Currently, Bri and Javi are taking turns flying back and forth between Delaware and Orlando. The distance doesn't seem to be impeding their progress as a couple.
But Will Deployment Be Different?
As any military couple can tell you, lengthy deployments can put a strain on even the most long-term, committed relationships. Javi and Bri have only been together a few months.
Commitment Is Everything
But Briana says she has every intention of standing by her man. And that can make all the difference.
Kailyn and Javi finalized their divorce just weeks after he returned from his first deployment. But both parties have stated their relationship was on the verge of falling apart long before he left for Qatar.
Head Over Heels
Right now, both parties seem wholly unconcerned about the challenges that'll come with spending several months on different continents.
An Amazing Man!
Just last week, Briana took to Instagram to exprss her gratitude toward Javi, writing "Thank you for being such and amazing man to not only myself but to Stella and Nova."
Three Magic Words...
Javi responded by commenting, "Thank you for being so good to me. I never take that for granted. I love you." It was the first time either he or Bri had said "I love you" publicly.
So What Comes Next?
So we know that Briana is NOT pregnant with Javi's baby, but we also know there's a good chance that will change in the very near future. And based on their recent social media exchanges, it looks like we also know one other important thing...
These Two Aren't Out For Revenge
Are they in it for the long haul? Only time will tell. But whatever happens, it's clear that Bri and Javi's feeling for each other are the result of mutual affection and respect ... and not a petty desire for revenge.
