Brittany Dejesus’ entire worldview was rocked when she found out that the man she thought was her father her whole life, wasn’t her biological dad. Now the former 16 and Pregnant star is finding out just who her, now deceased, father was from her aunt Christina.
Brittany’s aunt brings a photo of Brittany’s dad and explains to her niece that her father loved her. “I want you to know, that for the time that he was around you, he loved you dearly, Brittany because I was there to see it.” Christina goes on to say that Brittany’s father’s death was a terrible blow for the whole family because he was shot, and while his back was turned. “What made it a little bit harder was, when I saw him laying down, I saw my niece in him, and it was really hard because she got cheated out of a father.”
It’s a terribly emotionally moment but Brittany takes solace in knowing that her dad was a “fun, bubbly, obnoxious guy” and that she has his “personality through and through.”
