Looks like Teen Mom 2 is getting even more drama!
Last month, MTV confirmed that Briana DeJesus — who was on the failed third installation of the franchise — is joining the cast of the hit reality show, and she’s already spilling the tea about baby daddy No. 2 !
The 23-year-old will star in her own one-hour Teen Mom 2 special titled “The New Mom,” and in a sneak peek for tonight’s episode, she reveals that her baby daddy’s name is Luis and he is 31 years old.
“We’ve been just trying to figure it out for the sake of this baby,” she told producers in a clip from her new special. “Yeah, we want to move in together, we — hopefully, I would like to get married, all this grown up stuff. Cause I’m an adult, not 16 and pregnant.”
She also appeared on an after-show special last month, where fans got a chance reacquainted with Bri and her family — namely, her daughter Nova, her sister Brittany, and her mother, Roxanne. Viewers also got to learn a little bit about her love life as it was revealed that she became unexpectedly pregnant by her boyfriend.
When asked if her second baby daddy is still in the picture, she told fans, “That’s up in the air, to be honest. We’re still going through it. You will see him on the show. It won’t be a mystery forever. You will definitely see him.”
She continued, “It gets very intense. There are some deep moments. A lot of educational moments, but it’s very intense. That’s where my life is right now… [I’m] excited to continue sharing my story because things left off right around when life was becoming hectic and now I get to finish sharing that story. You get to see in-depth the choices we make and the struggles we go through.”
Even though she just gave birth to her second daughter, she previously revealed that initially wanted a little boy — since she’s already mom to a gorgeous little girl, five-year-old Nova with her ex Devoin Austin — but she is excited to add another member to their little tribe of strong women.
“I really wanted a boy, but there’s not much I can do. I’m just excited now because it’s going to be a bunch of females under one roof,” she gushed. “It’s all of us — me, my mother, my sister, Nova, and now Stella.”
Of course, Bri isn’t a total stranger to the Teen Mom 2; she explained on the show that she has met Kailyn Lowry, and she’s pretty close with her ex-husband Javi Marroquin (it was previously rumored that he was dating her sister Britt), but she understands why some dedicated Teen Mom fans may be hesitant about her joining the show.
“I’ve met Kail and Javi, we’re pretty close. I spoke with a few more over the phone. They sound excited to have me, so that’s good news,” she explained. “I think we’re all mature here as it should be. But I am the newbie, so I understand if some people are having mixed emotions. I’m hopeful we can all get along.”
Be sure to catch Bri’s new special, airing tonight at 10 p.m. on MTV.
