He has a name, folks.
And quite the adorable little face.
About a day after Javi Marroquin welcomed his second son into the world, the former Teen Mom 2 star has shared two critical pieces of information about the tyke:
1. His name.
2. His photo.
Upon first announcing the birth of his second child (Javi also has a five-year old son named Lincoln with Kailyn Lowry), Marroquin said he and girlfriend Lauren Comeau had not yet come up with a name for the newborn.
But that has now changed.
Along with the totally adorable snapshot below, Javi wrote the following caption on Instagram last night.
Take note of the first word in it…
Eli Joseph Marroquin, I didn’t know I could love another human as much as I do your brother.
My heart only got bigger yesterday and now I have another little boy to help guide and mold to become a gentleman! I love you Eli so much!
How very sweet, right?
Comeau, meanwhile, shared this same photo (along with the others below) and wrote her own caption that address her first kid.
It reads as follows:
And just like that, my heart is completely full. Nothing will ever top this moment, a moment I’ve prayed for, for a very long time. I love you E.
And thank you my love for supporting me through the craziest two days of my life.
Comeau and Marroquin dated for several weeks last summer and then rekindled their romantic flame late this past winter.
(While Javi was still dating Briana DeJesus, some people named Briana DeJesus might say.)
They announced they were expecting on May 30 and then revealed they were expecting a boy a couple months later.
Lauren was due on December 1, but had her labor induced on November 15.
In a chat with Radar Online, Comeau admitted that induction was a tad scary, but “it’s been incredible” overall to be a mother so far, adding:
“I was nervous about having to start from zero at the hospital, but we had a really great experience…
“His first overnight was amazing. We all three slept in between nurse visits. He’s latching great. He’s a happy, healthy boy!”
Marroquin also shared the above image of Eli asleep in his daddy’s arms.
Life doesn’t get much better than this.
In the wake of Javi become a dad again, Lowry Tweeted “congrats,” while DeJesus figured out some math in regard to when Comeau gave birth and when she split from Marroquin and basically accused him of cheating on social media.
But Javi doesn’t seem too concerned about that right now.
He has something far more important to focus on.
For the next few minutes, months and many years.
“I shed some tears,” Marroquin told Radar of his reaction when Eli was born.
“For those that don’t know, I’m not an emotional person anymore at all and just seeing my son come out really had me in my feeling.”
Well, yeah. Of course man! You’re only human.
In conclusion, the couple explained how they chose their little one’s name on Friday:
“Joseph after my dad, who goes by Joe, and my grandfather’s middle name,” Comeau told Radar, adding:
“We’ve been set on the middle name for months, but the first name has rotated like every month or so.
“I really wanted to name him something that could be shortened to a nickname, but we love Eli by itself.”
