TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry has revealed her true feelings about one of her baby daddies after admitting that her boyfriend, Elijah Scott, has moved in with her.
The reality star hasn’t entirely moved on from her son’s father.
Kailyn opened up about her relationship with her exes, confessing that she still has “love” for her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.
She made the admission during Thursday’s installment of her Coffee Convos podcast.
The conversation began when her co-host, Lindsie Chrisley, referenced a clip of Kim Kardashian, 41, expressing her love for her ex-Kanye West, 45, after their split.
After confessing that the Chrisley Knows Best alum feels similarly about her baby daddy, she asked Kailyn for her take on the subject.

“I guess that’s how I feel about Javi [Marroquin],” the 30-year-old said about her ex, the father of her 8-year-old son, Lincoln.
“There’s so much love there, as much as I hate him sometimes. I really feel like you have to love someone in order to hate them, does that make sense?”
Kailyn explained that she doesn’t feel what she does for Javi for her other children’s fathers.
The Teen Mom 2 alum is also a mom to sons, Isaac, 12, with her ex, Jo Rivera, and sons, Lux, four, and Creed, one, with her ex, Chris Lopez.

“I feel completely indifferent about Jo [Rivera], and I feel completely indifferent about Chris [Lopez], but for Javi, I do feel like there’s so much love there, but not ‘oh my god, you’re my person, I want to spend the rest of my life with you’ person. Just like love, as in ‘I respect you as my son’s father.’
She continued: “Not that I don’t respect the other dads as my kids’ fathers, but I think because I was married to him -”
Lindsie interjected: “That’s what I was gonna say. I think that’s the difference.”
Kailyn went on: “Yeah, I don’t know why because the love I had for Chris was very different. I don’t know how to describe it. But I think the video of what Kim [Kardashian] was saying is true to Javi for me.”
Kailyn and Javi tied the knot in 2012, but the union didn’t last as they ended their marriage in 2017.
Rumors previously circulated that the former couple was rekindling their romance after social media posts showed the pair looking more than co-parents.
Speculation was later squashed as Kailyn has since moved on with her new boyfriend, Elijah, 24.
Javi, 29, also sparked chatter that he got back together with his ex-fiancée, Lauren Comeau, 30, after the duo reunited at an NBA finals game with their kids.
Javi and Lauren are parents to a 3-year-old son, Eli.
Meanwhile, Kailyn dropped the news that she and Elijah are living together after a few months of dating.
On Tuesday’s episode of her Baby Mamas No Drama podcast, the TV personality opened up to her co-host Vee Rivera and her first baby daddy, Jo, who appeared as a guest, about her new living situation.
“This just happened the way it happened… it was like, why are we paying two mortgages?” Kailyn explained.
Elijah lived next door to Kailyn’s $750K Delaware mansion, as she previously referred to him as “hot neighbor” before going public with their relationship.
Followers of the MTV alum suspected the couple was living under the same roof, given her frequent social media posts of her beau at the house.
During last week’s episode, Kailyn also revealed that Elijah had rented his home to a friend, though she hadn’t confirmed his new address.
Fans were wary of the TV star’s decision and its effect on her four children.
An online thread branded Kailyn as “reckless” for allowing her boyfriend to move in soon after they began dating.
“Kail and ‘Baby Lijie’ have already moved in together…” the original poster wrote, referring to the pet name the TV personality confessed to calling her man.
“3 months into dating, and per BMND, Elijah has moved in with Kail. Wtf?!? He moved out of his (brand new) house that he OWNS, and is renting it to a friend. Now he’s living with Kail and the Chaos. Is she stupid or is she dumb?” they added.
Others agreed, bashing the mom of four’s parenting tactics.
“This is freaking disgusting and disturbing. How are you going to move a partner into your home after three months. What the f**k?!
“I can’t imagine disturbing my daughter’s daily routine with a random a** person around all the time. Like, date and f**k whoever you want but keep your kids out of it. Ugh. Poor children,” one person commented.
“This is just flat out dangerous. Three months isn’t long enough to really know someone you’re dating. Sorry, that’s just facts. She has kids in the house, young kids at that—she needs to be careful!!! This is so reckless…” agreed another.
“I can’t imagine moving someone into a home with 4 kids in under months. Like how f***ing dangerous and stupid,” a third fan echoed.
“Why the heck did he feel the need to move in when he literally lived right next door! Dumb dumb dumb” chimed in a fourth.
Fans are also questioning if Kailyn is expecting her fifth child with her younger man after admitting she’s open to having more children in the future.
