Things are looking good for Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesusand her new relationship! So good, in fact, that even her family approves of her boyfriend, John Rodriguez. After the couple went Instagram official in September 2018, they’ve been pretty loved up on social media — and their smooth sailing is a healthy contrast to her drama-filled relationship with ex Javi Marroquin. And now that things seem to be getting serious, we’re glad to see that both Brittany DeJesus and Roxanne DeJesus have given Bri’s new man the official thumbs up. Check out the gallery below to see what the star said about her new man and her family.
John is a total change of pace from her past boyfriends.
“I’ve had some bad relationships in the past and I’ve learned a ton from them and I’m applying all those lessons to my relationship with Johnny,” she admitted. “I want this to last and we’re taking it at the appropriate pace and I’m excited to see what the future holds.”
A month later, things were still going great between her and John. “I still do see us together long-term,” she told In Touch. “John and I have spoken about our timeline and we both think right now things are OK where we stand.”
“We both want the same thing,” she confided in In Touch. “We want to live together, start a family and so on and so forth.” For now, though, they’re happy to move slowly — but they know what they’re moving toward.
In addition to hoping that they’ll one day start a family of their own, the star also revealed that she thinks her man would be a “great father figure” for daughters Nova and Stella. “He’s so hands-on with [them],” she told In Touch. “And they both like John as well.”
But her daughters aren’t the only important family members.
It’s important to Briana that her mom and sister are on board with her relationship as well as her daughters. And they’re a big part of her life. When Stella had to undergo surgery recently, Roxanne and Brittany really stepped up to the plate to help.
“My mother and sister have met him and they have only good things to say about him,” she told In Touch in a new interview. “They definitely like him.” That seems like a good omen in their relationship to us.
Not all of Bri’s past relationships have been healthy.
The star savagely shaded ex Javi in late February and blasted baby daddy Luis Hernandez the month before. “I wanted Stella to have an active father figure in her life and I knew I was going to get the complete opposite. And then I’ll be the s–tty parent if I decide to cut all ties. SMH,” she tweeted on January 21.
“[Jenelle] is staying [in Florida] for three days to talk and catch up,” a source told Radar Online, revealing that the North Carolina native would be going on a trip to visit her friend a few states south.
John’s been given the thumbs up by Roxanne, Brittany, Nova, and Stella. Now, he just needs to get Briana’s friends on his side. Think he’ll also fly down to meet Jenelle while she’s in town? We can’t wait to find out.
