She's reaching out!
Right now, the first thing that comes to mind when most fans think of Briana DeJesus is all of the drama following her, Javi Marroquin, and his ex Kailyn Lowry! For only having been part of the Teen Mom 2 cast for one season, she’s managed to drum up even more drama than many of her co-stars.
But now it’s time to come back to what’s most important: Briana’s children. After all, that is the reason why she’s on Teen Mom to begin with. Briana recently gave birth to her second daughter, Stella Star, with her second baby daddy Luis. At the time of her birth, Briana revealed that her daughter was diagnosed with a gut-wrenching heart condition.
Even though Stella seems to have been fine for the first few months of her life, it looks like her heart condition is flaring up. Briana is now asking fans to pray for her daughter as she fights against the condition that she was born with.
The Teen Mom fans and cast members don’t always agree on everything, but nothing brings everyone together like an adorable newborn infant. When Briana DeJesus gave birth to Stella during the summer, fans and co-stars alike were instantly won over by Stella’s adorable chubby face and cute-as-can-be shots of her taking naps. But not long after, Briana revealed that she learned some very difficult news about the state of her daughter’s health. At the time, she opened up to Radar Online about Stella’s “devastating” condition:
“It’s been so hard dealing with Stella,” she said. “She has some heart condition. She has holes in her heart. It’s been difficult dealing with Stella right now.”
She revealed that Stella is also lactose intolerant on top of her heart condition. “We just have to monitor her breathing,” she said.
At the time, Briana revealed that her daughter Nova was a huge source of support for her. “She helps me out so much. I’m so glad she adores her sister.” And even though Briana also had support from her sister Brittany and mother Roxanne, she rarely got any from Luis. “He has not seen Stella, he has not helped with Stella and he hasn’t really asked about Stella,” she said at the time. “He’s pretty much non-existent right now. He disappeared. He totally vanished. The moment I had Stella he went MIA.”
Now, it seems that Stella’s condition has been flaring up again. Briana took a picture of her newborn cuddling up to her chest looking under the weather. She captioned the shot, “My poor baby ):” She then shared another image of text that read, “Long day is finally over. Let’s pray Stella is ok through the night.”
Luckily, Briana might have one more member in her support system now: Javi Marroquin. The couple seems to be going strong, and they have even been hinting at another pregnancy! Unfortunately, this member of the family won’t be around much longer. Javi recently got the news that he’s going to be deployed in the Air Force again, and he won’t be able to spend time with his family or his girlfriend.
