(Newser) – Thirteen months after Aaron Hernandez died in prison, the former Patriots player's fiancée is expecting a baby. Shayanna Jenkins, who had daughter Avielle with Hernandez in 2012, posted a photo of her baby bump on Instagram Tuesday announcing her pregnancy. "Many of you have had speculated that I may be expecting another miracle which is very accurate, I wanted to take time and process and post when I was ready to. I wanted to have a moment for myself alone with my daughter," posted the 28-year-old, whose username on the social media site is shayjhernandez.

"We are beyond excited about the new addition and chapter we will soon begin," Jenkins continued. She said she is expecting another girl, and as People notes, she did not comment on who the baby's father is. (There is, of course, speculation online that Hernandez is the father.) Jenkins has said in the past that she does not believe Hernandez took his own life, though one of his three suicide notes was addressed to her.
