Javi Marroquin & Lauren Comeau Share Birth Details & Their New Son's Name

Javi Marroquin, Lauren Comeau

The boy has a name! Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau welcomed their first son together into the world on Thursday, and they didn't keep us waiting long at all to announce his name. They also opened up about his birth, and it sounds like it was absolutely perfect -- even if a bit unexpected.

  • Javi and Lauren chose the name Eli Joseph Marroquin, and it has special family significance. 

    Javi revealed to Radar Online, "We are going with Eli Joseph Marroquin, Joseph after my dad, who goes by Joe, and my grandfather's middle name." They also revealed that they didn't come up with Eli until just last week. 

    Lauren said,"We've been set on the middle name for months, but the first name has rotated like every month or so. I really wanted to name him something that could be shortened to a nickname, but we love Eli by itself."

  • Little Eli joins big brother Lincoln, 4, from Javi's previous relationship with Kailyn Lowry.

    The couple has included Linc throughout the pregnancy, even in their adorable announcements earlier this year, as well as their creative gender reveal. We bet he's beyond excited to be a big brother again (Kail gave birth to his half-brother Lux more than a year ago).

  • Lauren confessed that she was nervous to be induced before her due date, but it sounds like everything went perfectly. 

    "It's been incredible. Being induced definitely threw us for a spin. I was nervous about having to start from zero at the hospital, but we had a really great experience," she said.

    "His first overnight was amazing. We all three slept in between nurse visits,” Lauren continued. “He’s latching great. He’s a happy, healthy boy!”

  • Javi even shared that he was overcome with emotion -- something that doesn't usually happen for him. 

    Javi gushed, "It's been amazing. I even shed some tears! For those that don't know, I'm not an emotional person anymore at all and just seeing my son come out really had me in my feelings."

    Aww, sounds like the new family couldn't be happier. Congrats again to Lauren, Javi, and Lincoln on baby Eli!
