TEEN Mom star Briana DeJesus shared an adorable shot of her daughters Nova and Stella days after announcing her lupus diagnosis.
The reality star, 27, had been open about her health issues recently and took to Twitter last week to confirm her diagnosis.
Putting her health woes to one side, Briana shared a sweet photo of Nova hugging and kissing Stella on the cheek after they got their hair braided on her Instagram Stories.
The MTV star’s social media post comes days after she revealed she had lupus on Twitter.
She tweeted: “Got diagnosed with lupus a few days ago and I’m not gonna lie—I was definitely sad about it. I’m starting to finally feel better.”

After a fan apologized to the Teen Mom 2 star, Briana responded: “Aw, thank you . No need to be sorry!
“S**t happens. I’ll be starting my meds tomorrow so hopefully everything will get better.”
Back in July, the MTV star revealed she had tested positive for the likely diagnosis.
She wrote at the time: “I am so sad. My Ana test came back positive,” and revealed that it probably meant she had lupus as “everyone in my family has it.”
An “ANA test looks into the number of antinuclear antibodies in the blood, and if an ANA comes back positive, it means the body’s immune system is attacking its own tissues or an autoimmune reaction,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
This issue is related to diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma.
Briana’s mother, Roxanne, was also diagnosed with lupus, in 2017.
Aside from her medical issues, the mother of two is also dealing with a recent breakup from fiancé Javi Gonzalez.
‘NOT READY FOR IT’
She explained her decision to a fan on her Instagram Stories and said: “… I came to the conclusion that I thought I wanted to be in a relationship but in reality, the thought of it sounded nice but I am just not ready for it.
“Had a great year with him but rn I have other plans. Maybe in the future we will meet again.”
The TV star concluded: “I love him and he’s a great guy.”
Briana had announced her engagement to Javi in May after he proposed to her during their romantic Miami getaway.
The 27-year-old is a mom to 9-year-old daughter Nova with ex Devoin Austin, and 4-year-old Stella with Luis Hernandez.
Briana has had issues with both of her baby daddies, as viewers saw her get into a heated arguments with Devoin on the Teen Mom 2 reunion over child support payments.
