Kailyn Lowry has confirmed that she is ending her two year marriage to Javi Morroquin.
The Teen Mom reality star, 24, told DailyMail.com on Tuesday that rumors of a divorce are true as she ran errands in Dover, Delaware.
“We’re trying to do the best we can for our kids because they are what really matters,” she added.
The divorce is stemming from a huge case of irreconcilable differences. The marriage has been documented on the MTV reality series Teen Mom 2 and in the current season now airing, the couple are seen going through a rough time during Javi’s military deployment.
Monday’s episode, the couple had yet another tense conversation via FaceTime, in which Javi called her a robot. When he said he was exhausted after a 12 hour shift and woke up at 4 am, she responded by saying she works 24 hours a day as a mom.
“What emotions go through your body?” Javi asked his wife. “Honestly, I just feel like you don’t care.”
“You just don’t even ask how I’m doing.”
Kailyn responded defensively: “I’m gonna hang up now because that’s bulls***… I’m going to go because this isn’t going anywhere.”
This week’s stress came after similar calls last week.
On last week’s episode, Kailyn burst into tears after hanging up with him because he was so sad and she couldn’t do anything to make it better. In April, an emotional Kailyn revealed on the show that she and Javi had been expecting a second child together but the pregnancy ended in a devastating miscarriage last year.
The 24-year-old broke down in tears as she discussed her grief and the pain she felt when her husband blamed her for losing the baby.
“I was in the hospital when I first started miscarrying and immediately when I was released, he was like ‘Do you want to go with me to get a haircut?” she recounted.
“And I just looked at him like ‘We’re not grieving together.’ And so that’s when things with him spiraled out of control.”
She added:”‘He was just a different person. He was mean to me, we weren’t communicating. He shut down, it was like a light switch, everything changed.”
Before Javi deployed, he apologized for his behavior around the miscarriage, admitting part of himself had initially blamed her for the loss, as he had very much wanted the child.
We wish their family well through this difficult time.
