Aaron Hernandez Fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins Is Pregnant
It’s a girl! Shayanna Jenkins, the fiancée of disgraced football star Aaron Hernandez, announced on Tuesday that she is pregnant with her second child.
She shared the news writing on social media,
Many of you have had speculated that I may be expecting another miracle which is very accurate , I wanted to take time and process and post when I was ready to. I wanted to have a moment for myself alone with my daughter … we are beyond excited about the new addition and chapter we will soon begin . I couldn’t be a luckier woman to have such a perfect little girl that’s prepared to become the best big sister , and even more blessed to welcome another babygirl to our home . BabyG we are very excited to meet you !!! Mommy and sissy will continue to wait patiently for your arrival. I thank everyone for the continued support and appreciate the respect for our privacy that has been shown .
In her announcement, she didn’t reveal who the child’s father is. News of the baby comes 13 months after Hernandez was found dead in his jail cell after hanging himself. Jenkins and Hernandez had been engaged for years prior to his death.
Jenkins made headlines earlier this year when she sued the estates of three men the former New England Patriots player was charged with killing in an effort to ensure their daughter benefits from the sale of their home. The families of Odin Lloyd, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado filed wrongful-death lawsuits against Hernandez’s estate, and should they win those cases, money from the mansion’s sale could be used to pay damages.
She filed on behalf of her daughter, 5, and requested a trial to determine whether Hernandez’s declaration of homestead remains in effect. The Massachusetts Homestead Act protects up to $500,000 of a property’s equity from creditors.
Hernandez was acquitted of killing Abreu and Furtado days before his prison suicide and his death erased his 2015 conviction in Lloyd’s killing due to an obscure legal doctrine in the state of Massachusetts.
Jenkins and her daughter are also suing the New England Patriots.
