Love After Lockup Star Brittany Dodd Santiago – Sad Beginnings
WEtv fans know that early life brought little bliss for Giovanni’s mom. She landed up in prison after hitting the streets and living a homeless life at the age of 12. By 15, she was addicted to drugs. Along the way, she gave birth twice and both kids were removed and put up for adoption. However, despite or perhaps because of her time in prison, she vowed to turn her life around. Perhaps the best thing that ever happened was when she became a pen pal, then a friend, and finally the lover of Marcelino Santiago.
Love After Lockup star Brittany Dodd honored all her promises to Marcelino to make something of her life. She certainly did that, and more. Recall she published her book, One Woman’s Journey: Surviving the Streets. Nowadays, she often shares photos of her life with her kids and a lot of fans think that she’s a great mom. Plus, Marcelino gets kudos for being a caring and devoted dad. Now, he enjoys time with Giovanni in Alaska.
Marcelino From Love After Lockup And Giovanni In Alaska
On Saturday, July 17 Britany took to her Instrgam and shared a really nice photo of Giovanni and Marcelino. Her little boy smiled his happiness at the camera. Meanwhile, Marcelino couldn’t hide his joy. In her caption, Brittany wrote, “Look at my guys having a blast in Alaska.” She added, “You’re an amazing father.” Well, fans agree with that. After all, Giovanni’s not from his own bloodline. But, that makes no difference to him.
Love After Lockup fans quickly took the comments section and expressed their thoughts about it. Here’s what some of them said:
