This holiday season is going to be a bittersweet one for Teen Mom 2 couple Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin.
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that after Christmas, Lowry, 23, will have to say goodbye to her husband, 22.
"Kailyn is spending Christmas in Delaware before Javi deploys," a source close to the couple revealed in a bombshell to RadarOnline.com.
The couple has been keeping Marroquin's deployment plans private for a while now.
"Nobody really knows that he is deploying besides their closest friends and family," the friend explained.
According to the source, Lowry has been instructed to keep his destination and the date of his travels private.
"Kailyn can't give out the specifics of his deployment," the source said. "The military doesn't allow it."
Unfortunately, saying goodbye won't be very pleasant.
"It's not easy, but they are handling it the best that they can," the source said.
And for their son Lincoln, 2, and Lowry's son Isaac, 5, from a previous relationship, Marroquin's deployment is quite confusing.
"The boys don't really understand," the source said. "Isaac knows Javi is going away for a while, but he doesn't really get it."
But Lowry told Radar during an exclusive video interview that they are working on it.
Two years after tying the knot, "Javi and I don't fight like we used to," she said. "And I think we kind of understand each other a lot better right now… We don't have a whole lot of drama right now and we are just trying to make things work and figure things out."
