Javi's time in the spotlight began in 2011 when he walked into the Buckle store at his local mall, where one Kailyn Lowry was employed.
Indifference at First Sight
Kail initially resisted Javi's attempts at flirtation, but he wore her down with his persistence.
Telling It Like It Is
“I turned him down!” Kail tweeted way back in 2012. “Anyway, from there he came into Buckle again and we started forming a friendship via Twitter and Buckle visits. Eventually, I gave him my number.”
A Change of Heart
Kail eventually gave in, and she and Javi began formally dating in January of 2012.
Kail has claimed that Javi saw her as a ticket to fame in the early days of their relationship. If that was the case, he quickly got what he was after. Photos of Kail and Javi kissing appeared in the Daily Mail shortly after they began dating. The caption identified Javi as Kail's "mystery man."
Kail and Javi got married in a secret ceremony at a Pennsylvania courthouse in September of 2012.
Reversing the Order
Just a few weeks later, Kail announced that she and Javi were engaged (even though they were already married).
Second Time's the Charm
Kail and Javi got married a second time in November of 2013. The ceremony was documented by a Teen Mom 2 film crew.
And Baby Makes Three
In November of 2013, Kail and Javi welcome a son named Lincoln.
Javi and Kail's domestic contentment didn't last long. The couple parted ways before Javi's deployment to Qatar with the US Air Force in January of 2016.
Wasting No Time
Immediately after returning to the States, Javi got about the business of enjoying his single life. He started by dating Cassie Bucka. The relationship didn't last a month.
Climbing the Walls
From there, Javi moved on to former Real World star Madison Channing Walls. Javi said he saw a future in the relationship, but he and Walls parted ways after just two weeks of dating.
In July of 2017, Javi met Lauren Comeau at a wedding of mutual friends. He was optimistic about the relationship from the start, saying in an interview, "This one’s definitely a keeper I can tell."
At first, it looked as though Javi's enthusiasm was misguided. He and Lauren called it quits after less than two months of dating, citing difficulties created by his fame and the fact that they lived in different states.
Messing With DeJesus
In September of 2017, rumors that Javi was hooking up with new Teen Mom 2 cast member Briana DeJesus began to circulate on social media.
In October, Javi confirmed in an interview that he began dating Briana while "trying to win Lauren back." Kailyn was less than thrilled, especially after learning that Javi had already introduced their son to Briana.
Another One Bites the Dust
Less than two months after Javi confirmed their relationship, he and Briana called it quits, allegedly because he questioned her decision to undergo additional plastic surgery,
A Second Chance
After splitting with Briana, Javi briefly reconciled with Kail. We don't need to tell you that ended poorly ...
While casually hooking up with Kail, Javi was making a concerted effort to win Lauren back. In March, Lauren posted this pic on Instagram, confirming that she and Javi are back together.
The Big Announcement
And last week, Lauren and Javi announced that they're expecting their first child together. Say what you will about the man, he certainly doesn't believe in wasting time!
