About Gender Reveal of Juju and Des's Child
On April 21, 2021, Rodriguez took to Instagram to announce she was pregnant. She uploaded three significant pictures that flaunted her growing baby bump and revealed their baby was due in October 2021.
Her partner also shared the same set of photos and exclaimed, "We are having a baby," in the caption. He added they were blessed to be parents.
Following the pregnancy announcement, the pair had a spectacular white-themed gender reveal party. Planned by Elegancia Events, the celebration was held in Calabasas, California, in May 2021.
And the pair's friends and family members, including parents and siblings, attended the gender reveal.
Unfortunately, the duo tested positive for COVID-19 in early July 2021. While Brown recuperated from the disease early, Rodriguez had a hard time suffering from pneumonia and complications amid her pregnancy.
Thankfully, she recovered after a week-long stay at the hospital and was discharged at the end of the month. "I am so thankful that I am getting better and my baby is okay," Rodriguez shared while updating her fans about her condition through a YouTube video on July 30, 2021.
Juju and Des Got Engaged in April 2021
Brown and Rodriguez met through mutual friends in 2017. Meanwhile, the mother-of-one was working as a bartender at Hooters and had just got her bachelor's degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.
She pursued acting and modeling, whereas Brown had already garnered a decent fan base from his Instagram and Twitter. As the pair befriended one another and started dating, they created a joint YouTube channel, Juju and Des, on July 15, 2018.
Since then, their undeniable chemistry only grew, and the pair got engaged on April 9, 2021.
Brown proposed to his girlfriend with a round diamond engagement ring in an ocean-front view in Big Sur, California. A day later, he shared the glimpses from the proposal on his Instagram and announced the engagement.
His fiancée also shared the pictures on her Instagram, citing Brown made her the happiest and luckiest girl in the entire world. "I love you so much Julius," the Instagram model wrote, stating she would do it all over again with Brown in every lifetime.
