A new pregnancy? Hints about her baby daddy? Cryptic social media messages?
Briana DeJesus is going to fit right in on Teen Mom 2!
The former MTV star has come under quite a bit of fire for her rumored addition to the cast of this long-running reality series, but it doesn’t appear as if DeJesus is letting the backlash get to her.
She has something far more important to worry about these days:
The health of her impending child!
Indeed, just like Kailyn Lowry, Briana DeJesus is pregnant.
And also just like Kailyn Lowry, DeJesus is keeping the identity of the man who got her pregnant a secret from the public.
In a new Twitter post, the Teen Mom 3 alum did not come right out and tell followers just who knocked her up.
But she may have given us a pretty huge clue as part of a caption to the two new sonogram photos shared on her social media account.
“Baby S,” DeJesus wrote along with the images above and below, suggesting that her baby daddy’s last name could start with the letter “S.”
Or maybe his first name.
DeJesus also included a trio of heart emojis with these precious pictures, implying that she’s excited about the bundle of joy and already in love with her second child.
DeJesus is the mother to five-year-old daughter Nova, who she created with ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin.
She went on to become a key part of the first (and only) season of MTV’s Teen Mom 3, but the network gave the series the axe due to ratings that paled in comparison to Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom OG.
In late March, chatter of Briana’s participation on the upcoming season of Teen Mom 2 grew strong over the Internet, much to the chagrin of those who have anchored that program for years.
“If something isn’t broke, why fix it?” one of the current moms allegedly told Radar in reaction to this rumor. “The show is doing beyond well.”
Another cast member supposedly agreed, telling the same website last month:
“It’s the most bizarre move MTV has ever made. They are jumping the shark!”
While she wasn’t cited in this report, Jenelle Evans has clashed with DeJesus (whose baby is “on fleek,” according to her caption for the following belly photo) since 2014.
The long-time MTV star’s fiance, David Eason, once re-Tweeted an article that referenced Briana’s defense of her allegedly abusive boyfriend.
DeJesus replied to that at the time: “I’m not even gonna dog u bc the whole world knows the truth about u.”
“Just stay in ur lane and maybe grow up a little bit.”
Impressively, Evans has taken the high road of late.
Ever since talk of DeJesus jumping into the Teen Mom 2 fray with her, Chelsea Houska, Leah Messer and Lowry started to spread around the Internet, she hasn’t gotten into it.
“I’m not commenting on it at all,” Jenelle told celebrity gossip site The Dirty in response to the possible cast addition.
“MTV wanted me to film about it and I even told them no.”
Hmmm… so DeJesus is pregnant again. She is keeping the identity of her baby daddy a secret. AND she has a contentious history with Jenelle Evans.
Is it really a mystery why Teen Mom producers would want her on board the new season?
The women of Teen Mom 2 are reportedly concerned that DeJesus would cut into their screen time, while they also can’t believe she’d come right in and earn a big time salary.
Briana is set to earn $20,000 per episode.
This is significantly less than the $30,000 earned by veteran cast members, but it’s still way too much, Jenelle and company supposedly believe.
In other words: they’re already angry at Briana and jealous over her salary and bitter over her addition to their show?
We can’t wait for filming to begin!
