The 23-year-old believed she would be getting induced, but arrived at the hospital two days before after her contractions began.
Before giving birth, the mother of two was approached by Stella’s father and her ex, Luis, who wanted to know if there was hope of them getting back together.
“I want to be with you and have a family with you,” he told her before the baby was born.
DeJesus seemed to contemplate his request, before saying, “I don’t want to be alone. I guess we’ll see when the baby gets here.”
The two previously broke off their relationship when DeJesus discovered he had been unfaithful to her while she was still pregnant.
“He’s going to do the bare minimum because he wants to keep this baby,” she told her sister Brittany, referring to Luis’ need to provide for her and their baby in order for him to keep his parental rights.
At the end of August, Luis told DeJesus he would probably miss their child’s birth since he was seeking a job as a truck driver, which required him to be away for several months.
That didn’t occur, as Luis was present at Stella’s birth, wiping away tears as he welcomed his second daughter (he has another daughter from a previous relationship).
