They made a new addition to their blended family! Teen Mom 2 stars Briana DeJesus and Javi Marroquin have been officially dating since October and they’re still going strong — despite all of the added drama of split rumors, negativity from fans who doubt their relationship, plus the brief feud between Bri’s mom Roxanne DeJesus and Javi and Bri’s ongoing feud with Javi’s ex-wife and fellow _Teen Mom 2 _ star Kailyn Lowry. But now it seems like their relationship is in a stable place because they decided to take the next step by adopting a puppy together!

Javi and Bri’s relationship is a long-distance one, and they take turns visiting each other on weekends — with Bri flying to Delaware to spend time with Javi and Javi flying to Florida to spend time with Bri. This weekend was Javi’s turn to visit, and while he slept, Bri was up looking at photos and videos of puppies and it seems like the following afternoon, Bri convinced Javi to get a puppy. She took to social media to introduce her adorable new fur baby to her followers. “Meet Bubba,” she captioned the shot of a little gray-and-white English bulldog puppy.

But Bri’s haters came out in full force and they criticized her for choosing to buy the dog from a pet store and they also questioned her decision to get a puppy when a main part of her storyline on the previous season of Teen Mom 2 consisted of her briefly considering placing her second daughter Stella up for adoption.

“Didn’t want another baby but buys a puppy. Makes sense,” one user commented, and another wrote, “Yep that’s what you needed. Next on Javi’s dating plan is a child.”

But it looks like the puppy will be enough for Javi and Bri to take care of together for now, even though Bri seems to love trolling fans who think she’ll get pregnant with Javi’s baby soon. Earlier this month, Bri shared a snap with a pregnant Bitmoji — which sent fans into a frenzy. Watch the video below to see Bri’s response to the snap!
