Fans of Love After Lockup were shocked last week when show star Brittany Santiago revealed that she was pregnant as her reason for not getting into a fight with another woman at a party. The pregnancy reveal confirmed months of speculation sparked by an online baby registry for Brittany and Marcelino created well before the season premiered.
It was assumed that after the episode aired that Brittany and Marcelino would share more information, but they have remained mum about it on social media.
Speaking of Brittany and mum, her mother Cynthia may have let the cat out of the bag with a photo that she posted on Facebook this week, before quickly deleting it. The picture (included above) features Brittany holding an adorable baby girl, and Cynthia captioned the picture by writing: “My beautiful daughter Brittany and my twin, my granddaughter…”
The image was shared by the @loveafterlockupsavageedition Instagram page as they openly wondered whether or not this was Brittany’s baby girl. Some commenters seemed confused by the timeline. If the recent episode (in which Brittany was not noticeably pregnant) was shot in the past few months, then it was way too early for her to have given birth already.
For clarification, Brittany and Marcelino’s wedding was in August, and we haven’t seen that on the show yet. That means that last week’s scene was shot in July at the latest. According to the Nevada Department of Corrections, Brittany’s parole eligibility date was at the end of March. Her and Marcelino’s online baby registry listed December 31, 2018 as the due date, which all seems to line up right if they conceived right away.
In the comments section of the Instagram post, Brittany herself chimed in and pointed out that her mother’s caption left the door open for the baby to be any one of her sisters’. “How do you know if that’s not my sister’s baby or something?” Brittany asked. “Hilarious! I have 5 sisters! Why can’t everyone just be patient? You’ll find out in a week or two…. geez.”
Brittany later returned and responded to those wondering what Marcelino’s ethnicity is by pointing out that “Marcelino is Mexican and Puerto Rican.”
After that, Brittany gave up on trying to stop everyone from speculating as she encouraged us all to “gossip away.”
Will do Brittany!
All gossiping aside, there is one thing we know for sure — Brittany’s mom has an adorable granddaughter!
