Well, this might be the biggest plot twist in Teen Mom history! Javi Marroquin is the father of Kailyn Lowry's third child...by law! The Teen Mom 2 star recently revealed that Chris Lopez is the biological father of her third child, but the legal responsibility is falling on her ex-husband at the moment.
It was confirmed back in December 2016 that Javi and Kail's marriage was officially over. In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, New York Attorney Brooke A. Camhi, who is not licensed in Delaware said, “Delaware law states that the ex-husband is presumed the father of a child if the child is born less than 300 days after the divorce."
Kail is currently 7 months pregnant with the child. Radar learned, for Kail's ex-husband not be recognized as the father of the child, he must file a valid denial of paternity with the Office of Vital Statistics.

Also, Chris must file a valid acknowledgement of paternity to “discharge the presumed father from all rights and duties of a parent,” Statute 8-305 reads.
As loyal Teen Mom fans may know, Kail has been open about becoming a single mother of three after the child is born, hinting that Chris will not be a part of the child's life.
In an exclusive interview, Javi, the father of Kail's second child Lincoln, confirmed to Radar that he has not filed a valid denial of paternity with the Office of Vital Statistics at this time.
