Love After Lockup: Brittany Dodd Santiago Stays Quiet About Baby News
Brittany Dodd Santiago didn’t reveal much about her baby with Marcelino Santiago. She did confirm that she had it already, though. A fan asked her why she was smoking if she was pregnant. She then fesses up – the baby is here. Based on the baby registry online, the baby’s due date was December 31, 2018.
Beyond confirming that she had the baby, Brittany Dodd didn’t reveal anything else about it. She hinted a few weeks ago on Instagram that a big reveal was coming. Still, when asked about the gender of the baby, she was quiet. Love After Lockup watchers know from the finale that she had a baby girl, Zoila.
Love After Lockup: The Truth About Marcelino Santiago
Brittany Dodd Santiago dished on her relationship with Marcelino Santiago. In addition, she shot down any hate directed at her husband. Brittany said: “Don’t come on my page talking sh** about my husband, for real”. Further, she added: “If you’re, like, too small-minded to see outside the show that there’s more going on, then you and I have nothing in common”.
One of the major things Love After Lockup viewers talk about when it comes to Marcelino is his controlling ways. Brittany Dodd set the record straight on that quick. She said: “My husband is not, not controlling at all. He’s a protector, and you know what? He and I have great balance”.
She also addressed the first date they had, and whether or not Marcelino took her food away. Addressing the viewers, Brittany said: “They got a bad impression from the first date night”. Also, she pointed out that it was a waiter that took her plate, not Marcelino. “The editors cut that out of the scene”, she said.
Interestingly, this seems to suggest the show manufactured quite a bit of drama to make Marcelino Santiago look bad. Even Sascha said that Marcelino is calm and chilled.
Brittany Dodd’s First 2 Babies Given Up for Adoption
Brittany Dodd Santiago was open with fans when asked about her past. She said that by the time she went to jail at 18, she already had two kids (not including her three-year old Giovanni). Brittany added that her first two babies were both put in foster care and later adopted. She wants to look into getting visitation rights to see her other children. When asked if she wanted to have more kids, she said she’s done for a while.
In addition to her baby news, Brittany and Marcelino Santiago also have a raffle in progress. The lucky Love After Lockup winner will get to spend two days in Las Vegas and hang out with the LAL couple. Brittany Santiago said that they’d announce the winner soon.
