Shayanna Jenkins, the ex-partner of late football star Aaron Hernandez, announced that she was pregnant again. She would be welcoming to the world her second child.
Using her Instagram account, Jenkins shared a slideshow with two photos. The first one portrayed her wearing a semi-sheer white dress in which her baby bump was the highlight, and the second one showed just her hair.
Jenkins captioned it pointing out that all those people who thought that she was pregnant were right and that she hadn’t revealed it because she needed time for her and her daughter to enjoy the pregnancy process.
She finished her comment admitting that ‘mommy and sissy’ were excited and waiting for ‘BabyG’ and thanked her followers for the respect and privacy she has got.
The announcement that Jenkins, 28, made shocked everybody, especially those linked to her ex-partner, Hernandez. According to People, an unnamed former teammate of Hernandez’s from the University of Florida commented on the topic.
He said that even though Hernandez had his demons, he was devoted to his daughter, Avielle. The man added that Hernandez would have been ‘very glad’ and happy to know that the little one was going to have a sister.
Hernandez’s teammate added that Jenkins was the best thing to happen in his former teammate's life and that he was crazy about her. Jenkins knew a lot of personal aspects of the New England Patriots’ tight end and she decided to accept them and support him
Even when Hernandez was arrested in 2013 for the murder of Odin Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins’ sister, their relationship kept being strong. Unfortunately for the family, Hernandez was also charged with the fatal drive-by shootings of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado.
He was convicted of Lloyd’s murder and acquitted of the double homicide in April 2017, for which he was sentenced to life in prison. On April 19, 2017, aged 27, Hernandez hanged himself and was found dead in his prison cell.
Things have not been easy for Jenkins and her family, but she managed to endure her loss and move on with her life.
