They're making it work for litte Stella! Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus hasn't had the best relationship with her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy No. 2 Luis Hernandez, but it looks like the exes have been able to set aside their differences. Bri reunited with Luis over the weekend at their daughter Stella's first birthday party, and they were able to celebrate together instead of having two separate parties like families in co-parenting relationships usually do. Watch the video above to see how Luis helped with the party that Bri planned for Stella.
It's so nice to see Luis on daddy duty, especially after all of the struggles that he and Bri went through during her pregnancy. As Teen Mom 2 fans know, Bri and Luis met at a club one night and unexpectedly conceived Stella. But even though Bri's second pregnancy wasn't planned, she thought that things would be different between her and Luis because he told her he wanted to move in with Bri and her six-year-old daughter Nova — whom Bri shares with her ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin II — so they can raise Stella as a happy, blended family.
But things didn't exactly go as planned because Bri found out that Luis had been cheating on her during the entire time they were together. Bri didn't trust Luis so she broke up with him, and even though she hoped that he would step up as a father to Stella, she was doubtful that he would — which is why she briefly comtemplated whether it would be best if she placed Stella for adoption.
Of course, Bri decided to keep Stella and thankfully, Luis got his life together and got a job as a truck driver to help provide for Stella financially. In a recent episode of Teen Mom 2, the exes met up to go look at daycare centers for Stella so that Bri could go back to work after her maternity leave and Luis promised Bri that he would be around more for his daughter.
"I suck at communicating, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I don’t think of her or always have her on my mind," Luis said. "When I’m in town, of course, I want to spend time with her and when I’m away I’ll communicate with you more often — FaceTime and everything, so I can see her and talk to her. And we’ll go from there."
