Aaron Hernandez’s Fiancee Shayanna Jenkins Says She’s Pregnant (PIC)
A few days after being found not guilty of a double murder as a member of the New England Patriots, Aaron Hernandez returned to his cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, in Lancaster, MA, and proceeded to commit suicide.
It was a shocking moment for his family, and especially his fiance Shayanna Jenkins, who became a fixture at his trial and in the news after his death. Well over a year after his death, Jenkins revealed that she is pregnant with her second child.
“Many of you have had speculated that I may be expecting another miracle with is very accurate,” she captioned an Instagram photo of herself cradling her baby bump on Tuesday, May 22. “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 begin soon.”

Jenkins, who shares 5-year-old daughter Avielle with the late Hernandez, didn’t disclose the father’s identity, but she still keeps her last name as Hernandez, even though she and the former Tight End never officially got married. Jenkins and Hernandez got engaged in October 2012 and welcomed their daughter one month later.
The former Patriots player was arrested in June 2013 in connection to the death of fellow football player Odin Lloyd. He was subsequently convicted of first-degree murder in 2015 and received a life sentence. Because he took his life while appealing that conviction, he technically died an innocent man because of a weird law.
