Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who died at the age of 27 in April 2017, began dating Shayanna Jenkins in 2007. In November 2012, they had a daughter together, Avielle Janelle Jenkins-Hernandez. That month, they also got engaged and bought a home together.
Shayanna is now expecting a second daughter, she announced on Instagram Tuesday morning.
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 .

"Mommy and sissy will continue to wait patiently for your arrival," Shayanna wrote in the caption. "I thank everyone for the continued support and appreciate the respect for our privacy that has been shown."
It is unlikely that Hernandez is the father, but not impossible. It would be feasible if the former Patriots tight end had his sperm frozen.
If Shayanna is in a new relationship, TMZ noted, she has not made it public.
She has said she does not believe Hernandez killed himself.
