Hold. The. Phone. Briana DeJesus is a mother-of-two, and although she just celebrated her daughter's first birthday earlier this month, we're only now realizing that their names are pretty much identical.
One eagle-eyed redditor pointed out that the Teen Mom 2 star gave her children monikers that both mean "star." They wrote, "Both Stella and Nova have Star as their middle name and both of their names mean star." And the info checks out.
When you Google "Stella and Nova meaning" — yeah, you better believe I did some serious research — Wiktionary reveals, "Feminine nominative singular of Latin novus ('new'). The feminine is used since stella ('star') is feminine; thus nova is a shortening of nova stella ('new star')." In other words, they have the same damn name.
One person wrote, "They really both have the same middle name? That's so lame." Another reddit user, however, claimed that it could be cultural. "[It's a] cultural thing. I know some Cajun families in South Louisiana where all the daughters (and their mom and maternal aunts) all have the same middle name." A third, however, said Nova chose her sister's middle name. "Briana said she let Nova choose the middle name and Nova wanted it to be the same as hers." They added, "I think it's kind of sweet that Briana let Nova be involved in such an important way and went with her choice, even though it might be considered a bit unusual."
Okay, fine. We're warming up to it. And considering Bri revealed during a Q&A on her Instagram Story on July 11 that she wants one more child, we can only imagine what she's going to name baby No. 3. Moon Star? Astrid Star? Luna?… Sorry, I'm done.
