Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was out in Los Angeles earlier this week, where, according to a TMZ report on July 20, the reality star was seen chatting with paparazzi — and with her fans. As she made her way back to her hotel from the Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood, California, the Teen Mom 2 star chatted about her recently-aired engagement to Nathan Griffith.
“I knew he was going to do it eventually, but I didn’t know when,” the Teen Mom 2 star told the cameraman.
However, when asked the Teen Mom 2 star was asked if she was wearing the engagement ring during her outing, Evans explained, “Not right now because I didn’t bring it with me.”
The Teen Mom 2 star was then met by two women (who just so happened to be teenage mothers themselves), who immediately recognized Evans from the MTV reality series, and applauded her for moving past her mistakes and getting to a better place for the sake of her children.
In addition to her first son, Jace, the Teen Mom 2 star is also mommy to 1-year-old Kaiser, whose father is Evans’ fiancé, Griffith. After welcoming Kaiser in June of last year, Evans and Griffith traveled to St. Thomas in January, where they became engaged as MTV cameras rolled.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Teen Mom 2 star opened up about her engagement earlier this year, prior to the episode airing on the show. In an interview with MTV News, Evans revealed behind-the-scenes details from Griffith’s proposal.
“We went to a fancy restaurant, and we were just going out to have a nice dinner. Nathan’s brother came the day after [we did]. [We were like,] ‘Everyone is finally here — let’s just go out and have dinner.’ [Nathan] just tapped his glass, stood up in front of the whole restaurant, and made this big speech. How he loves me, he wants to be with me for the rest of his life. And he’s really happy. And then he got down on one knee and proposed in front of everyone.
I was completely shocked. I think I had an idea he would probably propose to me here, but I didn’t know when during the week he was gonna do it. And I didn’t know what was gonna happen or anything. So it was like expected, but unexpected.”
