          Aaron Hernandez’s Fiancée Says He Loved Their Daughter, ‘She Was Very Much A Daddy’s Girl’


          May 15, 2017

          When Aaron Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison in 2013 for the murder of Odin Lloyd, he was engaged to his high school sweetheart, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, and they had a young daughter, Avielle. During his four years behind bars, Jenkins-Hernandez said they visited him often and tried to remain positive about their drama-filled lives.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a headline-making story in a small town?

          In the video above from Jenkins-Hernandez’s exclusive interview with Dr. Phil, the young woman describes Hernandez’s relationship with Avielle.

          “I wouldn’t say it was normal; it was her normal,” Jenkins-Hernandez says. “As far as their interaction, it was unbelievable. She was very much a Daddy’s girl.”

          They would color and play cards together during their weekly visits. “He was absolutely in love,” she continues. “When we were all together, he was focused on her … When she was there, she took over.”
