TEEN Mom Briana DeJesus posted a rare and sweet photo of her daughter Stella, 4, with her “absentee” father Luis Hernandez, who has been in and out of her life since 2017.
Briana, 27, shared the father/daughter moment in her Instagram Story.

Luis and the young girl were outside in a garden and standing under a patio umbrella.
Stella sat on her father’s lap and shared a smile with him.
The four-year-old girl had a band-aid on her cheek and wore a white T-shirt with butterflies on the front.
The Teen Mom 2 star captioned the post with a red heart emoji.
The TV star had previously spoken about Luis’ absence in her daughter’s life.
Back in July 2021, Luis came over to Briana’s house to spend quality time with their daughter.
Before her dad had arrived, Stella started sobbing and ran away from her mother.
She then buried herself in their sofa in an attempt to hide.
Briana said in a confessional: “Luis is pretty much a stranger to Stella…
“Stella would not be acting like this if Luis came around more. I can’t force her to do anything.
“But I thought it was a good idea that they could spend time with each other.”
She continued: ”I struggle with this daily…whether or not Luis should continue coming in and out or just stay away forever.”
In addition to Stella, Briana and Devoin share their 10-year-old daughter Nova.
During the Teen Mom Family Reunion therapy session, the MTV mom touched on Devoin’s fear that Nova will grow up feeling “abandoned” by him.
He threatened to take his mic off and step away from the show just when the credits started rolling.
Devoin alleged that Briana had been speaking ill of him to their child.
He claimed it would affect his daughter’s view of him.
Briana suggested that her former partner has been “unstable” for some time and referred to a period where he was reportedly “couch surfing.”
Devoin immediately grew angry and accused his ex of lying.
While standing up from his chair, he ranted: “This is ignorant.
“We gonna get accurate in the m**********r.”
Briana accused: “You were couch hopping from the age of zero to the age of five.”
She added: “There was no consistent home for Nova to go to.”
Devoin disagreed with her claim and said: “It was a year and a half.
“Tell Nova the truth.”
He added: “Her dad was not homeless from zero to five.”
The Teen Mom star and her sister also speculated that Devoin’s longtime girlfriend, Jazmine, may be pregnant.
He admitted to her that he was going to “propose to Jazmine.”
