Kailyn Lowry, star of MTV reality show Teen Mom 2, is engaged to Javi Marroquin.
The 20-year-old, who has a two-year-old son Isaac with her ex-boyfriend Jo Riviera, first earned fame in the MTV show 16 And Pregnant.
She was soon signed up to feature in spin-off program Teen Mom 2 and has remained in the spotlight since.
Teen Mom 2 followed Lowry and three other young mothers as they faced the challenges of raising their children and juggling relationships, study, and work. At one point in the show, Lowry was holding down two jobs and attending school.
Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin have been dating for around a year.
Previously, Kailyn had moved out from her ex Jo after they fought constantly. A brief romance with a coworker, Jordan, threatened to become more serious before Lowry met Marroquin.
Over the weekend, the young reality star took to Twitter at the weekend to happily declare, “It’s true. We’re engaged!” She also took the chance to show off the flashy new rock on her finger:
Kailyn’s joy was mirrored by her new fiancé with Javi Marroquin tweeting:
I love my fiancé @kaillowry! Couldnt even dream about the way my life is turning out to be!
