Aaron Hernandez’s former fiancee has given birth to a baby girl.
The father is an amateur boxer who played college football with the late New England Patriots star.
Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, a previous child by Hernandez, is believed to have had the child on June 16 at a hospital in Rhode Island.

Last month, her love interest was identified as boxer and bar owner Dino Guilmette, 39.
The birth, reported by TMZ, comes a month after Dino Guilmette, 39, was revealed to be in a relationship with Shayanna.
RadarOnline.com reported that he played college football with Hernandez at the University of Florida.
Guilmette of Long Island, New York, said that he met Jenkins a year ago through mutual friends. ‘We just hit it off from the beginning,’ he said.
Hernandez died April 19, 2017.
Guilmette, speaking about the pregnancy last month, said: ‘I’m going to have my hands full, but I’m happy about it.
‘I’m excited. It’s my daughter. She will have two sisters. I have another daughter from a previous relationship and then there’s Shayanna’s daughter with Aaron. It’s very exciting.’
When asked whether Hernandez was an issue at the beginning of their relationship, he said: ‘I didn’t care one bit. There are a lot of ugly comments out there. I don’t listen to them. I tune them out any way.’
He also said Hernandez would be so happy with the news.
‘I’m going to have my hands full but I’m happy about it,’ Guilmette said, who played college football with Hernandez at the University of Florida.
‘Aaron had demons; we all know that,’ he said.
‘But he really was devoted to his daughter. Boy, did he love her. I think he’d be very glad to know that she was going to have a little sister.’
Guillmette’s father said, ‘he couldn’t wait for the baby to come. Shayanna is a lovely young lady. She really is a special person. I adore her,’ Bill revealed.
‘I’ve watched all of my kids get married. I’ve married all of them off so far, except Dino. So hopefully that’s next.’
The family said that despite the controversy surrounding Hernandez, who murdered Boston Bandits player Odin Lloyd in 2013, they still empathize with him.
‘That’s another era in our life that’s completely done and over with,’ Bill said.
‘But I feel bad for Aaron too. I did some research. His father was a fantastic person. When he died, I think that’s when everything went downhill for Aaron.’
‘Beside all the injuries to his brain. I mean he had the worst case of degenerative brain disorder when they autopsied his brain.’

Guilmette said Hernandez would be so happy with the news. ‘Aaron had demons; we all know that. I think he’d be very glad to know that she was going to have a little sister’.
Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of the semi-pro football player.
Lloyd was dating Shaneah Jenkins, the sister of Jenkins, at the time of his death.
