First comes love! When former Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus joined the cast of Teen Mom 2, she knew she was getting a job — but she didn’t know that she would be getting a boyfriend too! She sparked up an unlikely romance with her co-star Javi Marroquin — who is the ex-husband of their fellow cast member Kailyn Lowry — and now things are getting so serious that they’re already using the “L” word!

Over the weekend, Javi and Bri celebrated Javi’s 25th birthday in Brooklyn together with all of their friends, and the couple had a mini photo shoot at the venue to show off their adorable matching outfits. Bri posted the photos on Instagram with the caption “Thank you for being such and amazing man to not only myself but to Stella and Nova.”

Javi responded to Bri’s sweet message in the comments, and he wrote, “Thank you for being so good to me. I never take that for granted. I love you.” Aw, so sweet!

Even though there’s a ton of distance between Bri and Javi — she lives in Orlando and Javi lives in Dover — they still find a way to make their long-distance relationship work. Ever since Javi confirmed their relationship back in October, they each have been taking turns flying back and forth to each other’s cities to spend weekends together and their kids. Javi is a father to four-year-old son Lincoln — whom he shares with Kail — and Bri has two daughters, six-year-old Nova and five-month-old Stella from previous relationships.

Javi and Bri have only been dating for about a month and a half, but it seems like they’re able to make their relationship work despite all of the drama surrounding them — and Javi’s ex-wife Kail is definitely feeling some type of way about it because she’s continuing to feud with Briana over it on social media.
