Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus is feeling “mom guilt” after the latest episode of the show, so she took daughters Stella and Nova on a shopping trip as a special treat. The scene with Briana and her youngest daughter Stella was difficult to watch and quite emotional for some people.
Stella’s dad, Luis Hernandez, has been in and out of her life since she was born but he recently planned to spend the day with her. However, Stella insisted that she didn’t want to see her dad, and after acting out by crying and throwing things the 4-year-old was eventually sent to her room.
Viewers weren’t happy with how things played out between Briana and Stella as some felt she should not be forced to spend time with Luis if she didn’t want to. Briana expressed some regrets about the situation as well and she later shared that she will no longer force Stella to have a relationship with her dad.

“Skipped out on reality for today and took the girls on a date. ❤️ having a little mom guilt after watching last night’s episode.” wrote Briana. “This doesn’t fix much but I love my girls and all I want to do is protect them. There’s no right or wrong answer to parenting which makes things so much more difficult but I am trying my hardest.”
