Fans first met Briana DeJesus, 23, on MTV’s hit series “16 and Pregnant,” and she’s now landed a spot on the show’s equally successful spinoff, “Teen Mom 2.”
DeJesus’s rocky relationship with Devoin Austin, the father of her daughter, was well-documented on the show.
The two often butted heads about their daughter, Nova, and Austin’s involvement in her life.
Nova is now a happy 5-year-old, and her father seems to be out of the picture. In fact, DeJesus already has a new baby daddy.
The 23-year-old recently gave birth to another baby girl, Stella, whom she had with her latest boyfriend, Luis.
But the couple hasn’t had the smoothest relationship.
DeJesus hooked up with Luis after meeting him at a nightclub, and they didn’t waste any time getting busy. The young mom soon became pregnant with Stella after the couple failed to use any protection.
It came as a shock to DeJesus. She said:
“This pregnancy was the last thing I expected to happen.”
The “Teen Mom” star contemplated terminating the pregnancy but decided to go through with it when Luis promised to be supportive.
But according to People, Luis has been anything but helpful. He admitted that he cheated on DeJesus while she was home with their baby girl.
On Monday’s episode of “Teen Mom 2,” DeJesus cried when she spoke about Luis being with another woman:
“I don’t know what I’m going to do. He was telling her that he’s only with me because he wants to be there for the baby.”
Luis admitted that he was “childish” during a tense conversation with DeJesus and said he wanted their relationship to work out.Screenshot/Teen Mom 2
But the 23-year-old had run out of trust. She said:
“And I don’t want to live with you in a toxic environment with me not trusting you. And Nova’s around, and it’s not fair to her.”
That’s when she dropped a major bombshell.Screenshot/Teen Mom 2
DeJesus said she wanted to put little Stella up for adoption so that DeJesus wouldn’t be “stuck” raising her children alone if her boyfriend left.
She told Luis:
“How do you feel about adoption? This may sound wrong, but if you was to leave, and not be around, I’m stuck with these two kids. It’s not fair to the girls because they don’t have that decision to just walk out. You guys do.”
Luis immediately slammed the decision and said DeJesus could “end that conversation right there.”
And the young mom’s comment stirred up some anger on social media, too.
Some Twitter users wrote:
Briana, adoption?! You got yourself into this mess knowing you had a daughter. You are selfish. #teenmom

You can't have the picture perfect family so your solution is to give your baby away? All for adoption but have the right reasons

DeJesus went on to say she wasn’t interested in simply co-parenting with Luis but instead wanted them to live together as a family — even if things were rocky.
It’s unclear if DeJesus is moving forward with the adoption idea. Fans will have to keep their eye on “Teen Mom 2” to find out in the coming weeks.
