Being a mother is far from easy, but imagine being a teen and getting pregnant. It becomes even more complicated. “Teen Mom 2” follows four girls from the second season of MTV’s documentary series 16 And Pregnant – Chelsea, Jenelle, Kailyn, and Leah. This show fist aired on January 11, 2011. People can watch these girls deal with all the responsibilities that come with having children, such as finances, graduating high school, or the relationships with the father. Jenelle Evans had had a difficult battle with her mother, Barbara Evans, but they have finally reached an agreement over custody. The 25-year-old mom also had a reunion with her son, Jace, over the Memorial Day weekend.
The custody schedule allows Jenelle and her mother to share time with the 7-year-old Jace.
During the past weekend, the mother and son had an “amazing” reunion when they were reunited after five weeks spent apart.
“It felt amazing to finally be reunited,” Jenelle told E! News about spending time with her oldest child. “He was so happy he didn’t even know what to do first when he got home. I was nervous a little bit because I didn’t want Jace thinking it was me that didn’t want to visit with him, but when he arrived everything was back to the way it used to be.”
She did share some tears, but it was still a happy reunion. Jenelle is also a mother of two more children, Kaiser, 2, and newborn daughter Ensley Jolie. The father of Kaiser is Nathan Griffith. They were engaged briefly in 2015. The father of Ensley is David Eason, her present fiancé.
David Eason also had a custody battle, but, luckily he won custody over his oldest daughter, the nine-year-old Maryssa recently.
To celebrate, Jenelle and her children, along with Eason’s daughter Maryssa, rode bikes and enjoyed some time at the beach.
“My next visit with him is this upcoming weekend since his summer school break will begin,” said Jenelle, who will reportedly have Jace for his entire summer break. “We are planning on taking the kids on vacation so that should be lots of fun!”
Both Jenelle and her mother Barbara managed to reach an agreement that allows them to share time with Jace before the scheduled trial. According to PEOPLE, “The new Order grants Jenelle specific periods of time with Jace so that Barbara no longer has the authority to determine if and when Jenelle can spend time with her son.”
