Briana DeJesus: Boyfriend John Rodriguez FINALLY Gets Family's Stamp Of Approval!

by at .

Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus's new relationship is still going strong!

So strong, in fact, that her mom even approves of her boyfriend, John Rodriguez.

The couple became Instagram official in September 2018 and since then they haven't been able to hide their mushy feelings from social media, proving to the world that they are in it for the long haul. 

Bri is in a happy and healthy place, which is definitely an upgrade from her last drama-filled relationship with ex Javi Marroquin.

Now that the 24-year-old is getting pretty serious with her New York native, we're glad to learn that Roxanne DeJesus gives her daughter the green light on her new man.

Though they started dating at the end of the summer in 2018, the Teen Mom star didn't really begin opening up about her new boo until January. 

She even hinted that he may become the daddy of baby #3 one day. 

But other than a few social media posts here and there, they remain pretty private.

The madly in love duo is currently long-distance, where they split their time between Florida and New York. 

"I'm very happy and my relationship with him is in such a good place," she told InTouch Weekly back in January. 

I mean, they do say distance makes the heart grow fonder! 

And well, after Javi we don't blame her for wanting some space, considering one of the many reasons they broke up was due to her not being ready to move in with him.

It's no secret that John is a total change of pace from Bri's exes. 

"I've had some bad relationships in the past and I've learned a ton from them and I'm applying all those lessons to my relationship with Johnny," she shared.

"I want this to last and we are taking this at the appropriate pace and I'm excited to see what the future holds."

Probably wedding bells?

"We play things safe, but I definitely do see this lasting," she tells InTouch

"I can see him being my husband one day. And I'd love to have kids with him at some point but we are in no rush."

Back in February, Bri gave us an update explaining that things are going pretty great for the lovebirds.

"I still do see us together long-term," she spilled. 

"John and I have spoken about our timeline and we both think right now things are OK where we stand."

It sounds like they are on the same page and are content with taking things slow.

"We both want the same thing," she says.

"We want to live together, start a family and so on and so forth."

Bri even admits that she thinks John would make a great baby daddy.

"He's so hands-on" with daughters Nova and Stella and she thinks he would be a "great father figure" for them. 

"And they both like John as well," she discloses to InTouch

But her daughters aren't the only members of Bri's close-knit fam!

It's very clear that her mother and sister play a big part in the reality star's life. 

After Stella had to undergo surgery recently, Roxanne and her sister Brittany were by her side the whole way. 

"My mother and sister have met him and they have only good things to say about him," she told InTouch during a recent interview.

"They definitely like him."

It sounds like Bri has gotten a big thumbs up from all of her family members, so I'm sure we have not seen the last of John. 

And hopefully, they end up happily ever after and all that.

But there still is one more person who has yet to give her approval over Bri's new man ... her costar and best friend Jenelle Evans

Jenelle is staying in Florida for three days to "talk and catch up," a source told Radar Online. So maybe John will fly south to meet her while she is in town?

And once he (hopefully) gets Bri's bestie on his team, the two are basically set. 

We can't wait to find out.
