Shayanna herself gained immense popularity after she was revealed to be the ex-fiancee of Aaron Hernandez, a controversial football player who was indicted for murder before finally committing suicide in 2007.
Dino Guilmette was Born on Rhode Island
The former boxer was born on August 11, 1978, in Cranston, Rhode Island in the United States. Dino Guilmette belongs to the Hispanic ethnic group and was born under the Leo Zodiac sign.

Their names are William Guillemette III, Dina Patnaud, Michelle Guilmette, Tammy Guilmette, Kathy Guilmette Cipriano, Maria Guilmette, Debbie Ziadeh, and Patti Davis.

Dino Guilmette Has Been in a Serious Relationship with Shayanna Jenkins Since 2018
Multiple verifiable results peg Dino and Shayanna’s first meeting to have happened sometime between 2017 and 2018. They reportedly met on a blind date organized by mutual friends.
The former boxer said once that he and Shayanna’s chemistry was off the roof and that they just hit it off almost immediately. Yet, despite the overwhelming love, the couple felt for each other, the beginning of their relationship was fraught with unavoidable difficulties.
On the one hand, their new relationship was highly publicized due to Shayanna’s high-profile controversial relationship with her former boyfriend, Aaron Hernandez. In April 2015, Aaron was sentenced to life imprisonment without the option of parole for the murder of amateur footballer, Odin Lloyd. The case hogged headlines all over the country, and soon enough, so much negative spotlight was focused on Shayanna, who was Aaron’s then-fiancee.
Things took a turn for the worse when Hernandez committed suicide while in jail. On April 19th, 2017, five days after his trial, Aaron Hernandez allegedly hung himself in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center. He was just 28 years old.
Rumors had it that he had killed Odin to conceal unsavory details about his sexuality. The rumors further went on to suggest that he was gay and had been having hidden relations with the victim before the murder. It was also speculated that Aaron feared for the future of his career, which was why he went to such extreme measures to prevent the truth from getting out.
Unfortunately for Shayanna, the sordid nature of her former fiance’s crimes left a huge stain on her reputation. She found it difficult to move about without being harassed by the press until she was linked with her new beau, Dino. She was already a mother-of-one, as she’d already had a child during her relationship with Aaron, but Dino didn’t seem to care. It was the perfect example of love found in unusual places.
Dino Guilmette is Currently Raising Three Daughters
Dino Guilmette and Shayanna Jenkins are parents to three daughters named Mia, Avielle, and Giselle. Giselle Guilmette is their youngest daughter. She is the only child among the three who was born to both parents. Mia Guilmette is Dino’s first child, born from a previous relationship with an unknown woman. The mystery woman and the ex-footballer were in a long-term relationship until they split for inexplicable reasons.
To date, there has been no mention of Mia’s biological mother, but she does, however, have a close relationship with her father. She is an equestrian and a graduate of Salve Regina University and the University of Rhode Island. Mia is also a graduate of Lasalle Academy. Dino’s middle child is Avielle Janelle Hernandez. By age, Avielle is the couple’s second child. She was adopted from his girlfriend’s previous relationship with Aaron Hernandez.
After his death, Jenkins single-handedly raised Avielle until she hooked up with Dino Guilmette in 2018. Their relationship provided her daughter with a responsible father figure which she lost after her father’s death. After the birth of their first biological daughter together, the couple stepped things up a notch and got engaged. Wedding details are currently unavailable at the moment.
