Teen Mom star Javi Marroquin shows off his Christmas decorations in Delaware home as son Eli, 3, decorates the tree

TEEN Mom star Javi Marroquin spent some quality time with his youngest son decorating the Christmas tree at their Delaware home.

The reality star shared a silly photo of his son admiring the work of a special helper who assisted with the decorations.

Javi posted a snapshot to his Instagram Stories of his three-year-old son, Eli looking up at their tree lit up in white lights.

The toddler's attention, however, was not on the lights but on the elf perched on one of the branches.

The elf was holding the end of Christmas tree garland as the rest was wrapped around the spruce.

The father-of-two captured the sight from behind the little one, adding the caption: "The tree needed to be decorated anyway. thanks elf!"

Last month, Javi shared snapshots from the Thanksgiving holiday, which he spent with both of his sons.

Javi shares Eli with his ex, Lauren Comeau, 29, and is also dad to son Lincoln, eight, with ex Kailyn Lowry, 29.

The TV star seemed to have a fun day with his athletic boys as he captured the brothers playing a game of shootout on their indoor basketball arcade.

The MTV dad cheered: "Get some buckets!"

The siblings took turns while tossing the basketballs into the hoops.

Lincoln cheered: "Made it!" as his ball bounced off one hoop and swished through the other hoop.

Their father replied: "Yeah but that doesn't count."

He asked himself in the caption: "Why did I buy this thing?"

In the next Story, the brothers ditched basketball for a blue balloon as they tossed it back and forth to each other. 

The two kept the balloon in the air so that it would not touch the floor.

Recently, the Teen Mom 2 star was criticized by fans for "putting too much pressure" on Eli, especially during his birthday.

The star posted a series of photos of the little one during his special day. 

He captioned the post: "Eli is three! You bring so much joy to life and I cannot wait to continue to watch you grow. Every upcoming year, we strive to be better than the last.

"The amount of accomplishments at two were unreal so I can only imagine what you're going to do at three. You're funny, sweet, athletic, wild, daredevil, loving, and so many more."

He closed with: "Today is your day, my king! I love you so much!"

Reddit users then slammed Javi's choice of words in his birthday post.

One said: "Why does he put so much pressure on a three-year-old to 'strive to be better?' He’s f***ing 3 lol"

Another wrote: "What are his accomplishments?"

A third mentioned: "I really cringe every time he says my 'king/prince.' I understand he means well but ugh!"


All this comes after Lauren revealed that she was on an "emotional roller coaster" ahead of her son's birthday.

Lauren and Eli appeared to be going on one of the rides at an amusement park.

"The weekend of fun" was meant to "kick-off" Eli's "birthday celebrations."

She opened up about "the emotional rollercoaster that is about to unfold over the next week and beyond"

Lauren concluded: "Next time I put him to bed will be his last night of two. Holy! How does it happen this fast?"
