Deshanna is Jillian’s first big love since she split from her former fiancée Heidi Rhoades in June 2018.

‘We’ve found we’re better friends and parents living apart than staying together,’ she wrote on Instagram at the time.

‘Life and people change but our love for one another and commitment to raising our two kids as an inseparable team remains. Thanks for always loving and supporting us, the feeling is mutual!’

The couple began dating in 2009 and got engaged in late 2015.

They adopted Lukensia at age two from Haiti in May 2012, and Heidi gave birth to Phoenix later the same month.

In February, Jillian filed documents in a Los Angeles court to dissolve their domestic partnership.
