The Teen Mom family is expanding again. A Teen Mom star took to Instagram ahead of the weekend to announce the happy news that she is expecting baby #2.
Shirley Burgos, BFF to Briana DeJesus, is pregnant - and she shared some adorable bump pics to celebrate the announcement.
Here Comes Baby #2
More babies to love! Burgos took to Instagram last Thursday to share the happy news.
With an image of a pair of baby Air Jordans with a positive digital pregnancy test, Burgos wrote,
"Baby M.: 🇩🇴🇵🇷
Limited Edition: 1 of 1
Release Date: 11/10/22
This was Emanuel’s first pair of Jays. OG 12s released in 1997 so it’s only right to break them out for his younger sibling."
In the comments, friends celebrated.
Jade Cline commented, "Omg yesss !!"
And BFF DeJesus wrote, "My baby is having a babyyyyyy❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️I love you."
Burgos also shared an adorable pic of herself with an obvious baby bump. Wearing a mint green dress and black-and-pink braids, she looks ready for the challenges of being a mom of two.
And in an adorable reel dropped on Sunday, Burgos shares a video of herself turning to reveal her bump as she cradles it playfully, with the writing, "I told my man I wanted to gain weight & have a hot girl summer....he said bet I gotchu."
She captioned it, "Jokes on him imma still have a lit summer 🤰🏽😂😂😂🤰🏽Happy Mother’s Day💖💖💖."
Close to a Firestorm
Although she herself has stayed out of the unfavorable limelight, Burgos has found herself close to a media firestorm.
Bestie DeJesus has recently been embroiled in a bitter court case with fellow Teen Mom and enemy, Kailyn Lowry.
Lowry sued DeJesus for defamation after the latter suggested Lowry beat her ex baby daddy, Chris Lopez.
However, a judge dismissed the lawsuit in DeJesus' favor, and now the reality star is looking to celebrate.
A source closed to the star shared that she was hosting a celebratory party in Florida, and planned to invite fellow castmates.
The move has raised eyebrows and even diehard fans call it a trashy move likely to inflame the feud between DeJesus and Lowry.
The guest list and what the party turns out to be - bash Kail or no - remains to be seen.
The Ashley's Reality Roundup revealed the party plans on May 4; "The Ashley can exclusively reveal that Bri— who had Kail’s defamation lawsuit against her dismissed last month— is throwing a party next weekend to further whoop it up that she beat Kail. The Ashley’s sources tell her that Bri has extended invites to a bunch of cast members from Teen Mom 2, as well as Teen Mom OG and even Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant.
MTV cameras are also invited; however, The Ashley can’t yet confirm if producers are taking Bri up on her offer to film the shindig.
'With as bad as the ratings are right now, they will probably jump on this and film it,' one production source tells The Ashley. 'If someone tips Kail off, it would make for glorious TV.'"
It's a bold move, but fits with DeJesus' "take no prisoners" personality.
