Javi Marroquin has reconciled with his ex-girlfriend, Lauren Comeau, whom he dated before getting involved with two ladies from MTV's Teen Mom 2.
Javi, 25, revealed Thursday he's dating Lauren again, ultimately shutting down rumors he's back together with his ex-wife Kailyn Lowry.
"I want to do things differently," Javi told RadarOnline of his romance with Lauren. "I just want to enjoy it. She's the only girl that's been on no TV. It's just real stuff."
Lauren also confirmed her reunion with Javi, who serves in the Air Force, via Instagram on Wednesday.
"Sometimes, two people have to fall apart to realize how much they need to fall back together," Lauren captioned a photo of the pair smiling and embracing each other.
Javi and Lauren reportedly met at a wedding and began dating in July 2017. The couple, however, called it quits on their relationship in September of that year due to the struggles of living in different cities.
Rumors of a reconciliation between Javi and Kailyn from Teen Mom 2 sparked in January when Javi appeared on her podcast, Coffee Convos with Lindsie Chrisley.
And then on March 1, Javi brushed off questions about her on the Teen Mom Time podcast, saying, "We have our own private discussions just me and her. But a lot happened between us in the past."
Javi added of Kailyn at the time, "On my behalf, I've moved on from all of that. I'm in a lot better place than I was when all of that was happening. We have the weirdest relationship in the world. We can't even explain it to anybody because it's me, Kail and the boys."
Kailyn -- who shares a son Lincoln with Javi, as well as two sons from two other previous relationships -- clarified on March 10, however, there's nothing romantic happening between Javi and herself.
"Javi and I are not getting back together so whatever you're reading is all bullsh-t," tweeted 25-year-old Kailyn, who filed for divorce from Javi in 2016 after nearly three years of marriage.
"Nope, he moves too funny for me... How can you get back with someone who didn't have your back when y'all were together? If you have a child w someone idc how bad it gets you don't let someone go after the other parent."
Javi also dated Kailyn's Teen Mom 2 co-star, Briana DeJesus, from October 2017 to January 2018.
