Entertainment And News

Joseline Hernandez is someone who loves to be in the mix of things. In the past, that "mix" included her being side-by-side with her dearly beloved, Stevie J, with whom she has a daughter.

But now, the self-proclaimed Puerto Rican Princess has found a new prince to share her life with. Who is Ballistic Beats?

Hernandez first came to our attention when she starred on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, and quickly rose to become one of the most popular cast members on the show.

When she had a baby — a daughter named Bonnie Bella — with her fellow castmate Stevie J, fans thought that their pairing would last forever. Alas, as these things often do, it didn’t last.

Now, Joseline has taken up with Ballistic Beats, and he’s causing quite the stir in the Love & Hip Hop fandom!

Hernandez also recently appeared on The Breakfast Club and discussed her relationship with Ballistic Beats, as well as how she'll appear in the fourth season of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition.

Let’s look at what we know about the Puerto Rican Princess’s new prince, her custody battle with ex Stevie J, and her upcoming television appearances.

1. Who is Ballistic Beats? He and Hernandez first started dating back in April 2019.

Hernandez and Beats first started sparking romance rumors when she posted a video of the two of them together on her Instagram in April 2019. She captioned the lovey-dovey photo, “he knows I love him.” In the video, she kisses his head.

But even though they were “Instagram official,” they didn’t make it officially official until the next month.

2. Beats is a Renaissance man.

Beats is a well-rounded man (better known as a Renaissance man). In addition to bonding with Joseline’s daughter, Bonnie Bella, he cooks for her and cleans the house as well.

In fact, Beats even cooked for her while wearing nothing more than his shorts, causing many a ribald comment from her extensive fandom. Hernandez, herself, didn’t mind the comments, calling her man a “panty dropper” and complimenting him for how “sexy” he looked.

3. Stevie J doesn't like Hernandez's boyfriend.

Even though Stevie J moved on from Hernandez — he, in fact, recently married R&B singer Faith Evans, whom he met while she was still married to The Notorious B.I.G. — he can’t seem to get over the fact that she’s moved on without him.

Stevie J claims that Hernandez is a “bad mother” who refuses to let him see Bonnie Bella. He also said that he doesn’t like the fact that Beats is trying to “play house” with his daughter, even though Hernandez has said that Beats is a “great father” to her daughter.

4. Hernandez doesn’t care about Stevie J’s opinion.

Hernandez is well aware that Stevie J doesn’t like the fact that she’s moved on with a new man. However, she doesn’t care, because she’s living her best life out here.

Additionally, she’s quick to dismiss the claims that Stevie J will be seeing his daughter “soon” by saying that her daughter doesn’t know her father. Ouch!

5. Beats and Hernandez may be engaged.

In September 2019, Beats and Hernandez allegedly became engaged, less than a year after they started dating. Beats posted a photo on his Instagram with a message from Hernandez, and signed it “Your Fiancé.”

While their engagement isn’t confirmed, despite the two being seen wearing rings on their fingers, during her appearance on The Breakfast Club, Hernandez revealed she has plans to marry Beats. In fact, in an upcoming trailer for the new season of Love & Hip Hop: Miami, where she will appear, footage suggests her engagement may be part of her storyline.

The couple also appeared in the February 6, 2020 premiere of Marriage Boot Camp where they both continued to play coy about whether or not they would ever actually get married. Beats commented, “Anything could happen in the midst... It’s life, we’re human. So, maybe she might not want to. Maybe I may not want to.”

However, if they do ever have a wedding, the only thing the pair are sure about is that Hernandez's daughter will be the flower girl. “Absolutely... She’s the flower girl,” revealed Hernandez after being asked if her daughter would have any part in the ceremony. 

6. Is Hernandez pregnant?

Another point that the couple brought up in their Marriage Boot Camp appearance was that they are already thinking of having kids together. In fact, Hernandez even said they'd have kids as early as 2022 or 2023. 

However, there are some fans who believe that the reality star may already be expecting a little one. In an Instagram photo posted just a week ago, Hernandez poses in a dress, where many of her followers weighed in with their speculation that she may be pregnant.

But Hernandez herself hasn't responded to any of the speculation, so there is no confirmation either way yet.
