‘NO BAD BLOOD’
Javi appeared to be trick-or-treating without Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry, Lincoln, seven, or her other children.
The pair recently put their differences aside publicly, after a rocky co-parenting journey.
Javi and Kailyn, 29, each posted a photo posing with their son, who appeared decked out in a football uniform.
The reality stars posed on either side of the boy with a hand on each of his shoulders.
Javi captioned the post: “At the end of the day, we [him and Kailyn] do it all for you @lincmarroquin no bad blood, no grudges, no anger.”
He went on to talk about the pride he experiences from coaching his son in football.
Javi also included kind words for his ex-wife, writing: “so thank you kail for taking care of the behind the scenes work so I can focus on the boys.”
He concluded his message by writing: “Currently cit at 8-0 and excited to make the last push for the playoffs starting next week.”
Fans were thrilled to see Javi and Kailyn getting along.
One person commented: “This is what it’s all about Javi!
“TEAM WORK makes the DREAM WORK love seeing you both get along and actually giving kail some kudos!
“That’s a man!”
Kailyn previously said that Javi “turns off bulls**t for Lincoln, though she admitted that co-parenting isn’t easy.
She opened up about the photo of her and Javi together on her podcast, Coffee Convos, saying: “It was important to me to get a shot of the 3 of us for @lincmarroquin because I want him to always know that no matter how much Javi & I got through off the field, we turn the bulls**t off when it comes to him.
“I think we’ve done a damn good job running our team this season & I cannot wait to see what we do next season!”
Javi and Kailyn were married from 2012 to 2017. Since then, they have had their ups and downs.
Javi has since remarried. Kailyn has also moved on.
