Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux Wants To Know If He Fathered Dani Soares’ Baby; Below Deck Stars Slam Him For Not Taking Paternity Test

It’s time to hop on the Below Deck Sailing Yacht train, if you haven’t already. Season two of the series just wrapped up, and viewers are eagerly awaiting the reunion episodes to air. There’s going to be a lot of crew dynamics to unpack with this one!

Despite having some light issues with each other, chief stew Daisy Kelliher and chef Natasha De Bourg made their way through this season largely unscathed. Well done ladies! Then there’s the love triangle between Gary KingSydney Zaruba, and Alli Doore. While we saw a slight update on how these three made their way through the boat’s final crossing in the final episode, but we deserve more. Then there’s the cringe-worthy “fairy tale love” between Dani Soares and Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux. We need a follow up on that one ASAP!

The final episodes of the season featured several scenes of Dani and JL professing their love for one another, discussing a potential future together, and even Dani saying she’d be open to making a baby with the deckhand she’d known for mere weeks. It was, a lot. Since leaving the boat, Dani has announced a surprise pregnancy, and given birth! Of course, many fans are wondering who the father of this baby could be. Prior to her exit from Bravo Chat Room, even Kate Chastain was giving her thoughts on the matter.

While I think some fans are hoping Jean-Luc is the father of Dani’s baby, others may be cringing at the thought on the baby’s behalf. Even Jean-Luc isn’t sure what to think. Right before the weekend he posted a pensive photo of himself looking out over some water. I can only assume he took the cornball photo himself, since it’s at his head level.  His caption seemed to address the rumors that Dani’s baby could be his.

He wrote, “There’s a lot of gossip about my social media silence so I think it’s time to clear the air. While others are off chasing their 15 minutes of fame, I am working on a yacht in Central America and heartbroken to have to hear about the baby’s birth on social media and read headlines like “Dani Soares Says Her Baby’s Father Doesn’t Want Anything to Do With It.” All I can say is if she’s mine, I want to be involved 100%.” Alrighty then. So hop to!

Jean-Luc added, “As someone who grew up with parents who weren’t together, I wouldn’t wish that on any child. Not looking for a pity party. Just want everyone to know how strongly I feel about this, especially the haters who are so sure I am neglecting my responsibility. No one wants to know more than me if this is my baby girl!” I know Dani referred to this full grown man as being young, but someone tell me this 25-year-old knows paternity tests exist. He can’t possibly be this idiotic, can he?

Yachties from all over Bravo clamored to the post. Colin Macrae commented, “Don’t play the innocent victim here JL. Man the fuk up.” Here here! Someone replied to Colin saying, “Why would you even say that!? There’s always more to the story,” Colin clapped back “Because I’ve known ‘the story’ from the start that’s why. I’m not gonna sit here and let this man lie through his teeth.” Shots fired! Plus, aren’t we all team Colin, always?

Alli chimed in, logical as ever saying, “No one is stopping you from getting a paternity test.” JL sheepishly replied, “I want to take a paternity test and would like to do it in person. If I get the invitation, I will be on my way!” Can someone give me the link for a personalized paternity invitations on Etsy? Or are they on Amazon now? Asking for no one because that’s NOT HOW ANY OF THIS WORKS!

Natasha kept the drag alive saying, “I’m sorry JL but sounds like a pity party to me… Why didn’t you reach out 9 months ago??? No woman deserves to be treated the way you treated Danny.” Meanwhile, a previous fan-favorite, Courtney Skippon gave a call out, “Center yourself in the conversation and then throw insults- classic first steps in reconciliation.”

Here’s to hoping the Below Deck Sailing Yacht reunion gets into this story much more! It’s looking like fans aren’t the only ones who need answers!
