‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Briana DeJesus Seriously Considered Abortion and Adoption After Getting Pregnant by Baby Daddy No. 2
It was a dramatic debut for Teen Mom 2's newest addition, Briana DeJesus. The 23-year-old — who was once a fixture on Teen Mom 3 — revealed that she's pregnant by someone named Luis, a 31-year-old man she met at a club.
During the episode, she admitted that since the two had only been seeing each other for a month, she had her reservations about following through with the pregnancy. "'When I first found out, I was like 'Well, we don’t really know each other, maybe it’s best if I get an abortion.'"

While out with daughter Nova, 5, and her sister, Brittany, the reality star opened up about birth control. She said, "I should have been on birth control, that’s for sure. I didn’t think I would end up getting pregnant again, so I didn’t bother getting on birth control." Brittany chimed in, "You didn’t think you’d be getting pregnant at 16 either."
Earlier this month, Briana welcomed her second child — a baby girl named Stella. Despite her whirlwind romance with Luis, she later told him that she appreciated how supportive he's been. "I'm all in… I'm ready," he said during the premiere.

During a preview for next week's episode, however, it looks like he may not be the Prince Charming Briana thought — a friend broke the news that he might be sleeping with someone else. As a result, she decided to text this alleged other woman, who called her to discuss and it seems like the conversation led to Bri's decision to dump Luis.
In a sneak peek obtained by Us Weekly, Luis visits Bri at her apartment to talk. He seemed to be remorseful about cheating on her with another woman while she was pregnant with his child, but Bri was not having it. She said that even though they're having a child together, she does not feel obligated to be involved with Luis romantically.

"My thing is, I don't want to be with you Luis," she said, holding back tears. "I made my mind up already. So if I don't want to be with you, that means we have to co-parent."
Luis refused to co-parent with Bri because he wants to raise their child together, but Bri said she's been through it all already with Nova's father Devoin Austin and she doesnt want to do it again. In that emotional moment, she asked Luis how he feels about adoption and we'll have to wait to see how he responds!
While we do know that Bri eventually decided against adoption, we're not exactly sure how involved Luis is as of today, or if he's even still in the picture — since the episode was filmed months ago. We do know that the mom-of-two is having a difficult time breastfeeding her newborn. On July 13, she tweeted that the experience is "stressful" and added, "Having implants while breastfeeding is something else." Here's to hoping her baby daddy drama subsides — and that she has an easier time feeding Stella!
