Could there be another set of wedding bells ringing soon for a Teen Mom 2 star?
A report this morning says that Kailyn Lowry got engaged to her boyfriend, Javi Marroquin, on September 1.
OK! magazine (as reported by HollywoodLife) quotes an insider who says that Javi made the proposal extra-special with a carefully planned scavenger hunt. He gave her notes that sent her to Lake Wallenpaupack, near the Poconos town where she grew up.
It was there, says the magazine, that Javi and Kail’s son, Isaac, were waiting for her. The 2-year-old presented her with flowers, while Javi knelt and popped the question.
Now for the big question. No, not “When’s the wedding?”, but “Is it true?”
If it’s true, then it would be great news not only for Kail, but for Isaac as well. By all accounts, Javi is a great male role model in the toddler’s life, and the insider calls him “kind and thoughtful and patient.” He’d be a great stepdad for the adorable little guy.
But y’see, the tabloids and rumor mills haven’t always been the most reliable source for news concerning the Teen Moms. Catelynn Lowell had to go on record to deny a mag cover story that claimed she was pregnant. Maci Bookout was rumored to be starring in her own spinoff show, but she shot down that story fast.
Even Kail herself has been the subject of similar gossip.
Just a few weeks ago, there was strong buzz going around that she was not only marrying Javi, but pregnant with her second child as well. Kail had to put a stop to the story by publicly announcing, “I know what goes on in my own life. I’m not pregnant again and I’m not getting married this weekend.”
So how seriously should we take this new story? Maybe more seriously than previous tab reports.
Her Twitter feed for September 1 shows that she did indeed travel that day – and that she wasn’t expecting to: “Apparently I’m going back to my home towns today #Honesdale #Hawley,” she said in the morning, and indicated that she was reading a note from Javi.
But later that night, the only news she had to report was that her dogs were bathed and that she and Javi were watching Think Like a Man at home. Kail also tweeted a joke about marriage, but was quick to note that it was a movie quote.
On Sept. 5, Kail tweeted to Javi, “Another day, another month, another milestone. Happy Monthaversary. #loveyou.” They’ve been dating for exactly one year.
Then on the 9th, she asked, “Where are some nice/affordable banquet halls in the Lehigh Valley?” A fan warned her that this was the kind of question that could lead folks to jump to conclusions – but Kail didn’t give any further explanations for her query.
And finally…there’s this pic, tweeted just a few minutes ago:
Sure looks like a pretty sparkler on her hand, doesn’t it?
Well, if this is another bogus story, then we’ve been led on a merry wild-goose chase with all those clues.
But if it’s for real this time…congratulations to Kail and Javi!
So what do you think? Are they engaged? And are you happy for them?
