Jenelle Evans took to Instagram earlier this week to wish her son, Jace, a Happy Birthday.
As rumors regarding the Teen Mom 2 star’s pregnancy continue to swirl, Jenelle Evans shared a sweet post with her fans and followers.
“Oh my goodness! Jace is 7 years old today!!!! Happy birthday to my little man! Before I know it you’ll be in middle school with your first girlfriend. Where has time flown to?!” Jenelle Evans wrote on Instagram on August 2.
Following Jenelle Evans’ post, fans wondered why the mother of two didn’t celebrate Evans’ birthday on his special day. Shortly thereafter, Evans explained that her son was currently attending school and would be enjoying his birthday party in a few days.
“He’s back in school already so we are celebrating this weekend,” she explained.

Jenelle Evans is mom to 7-year-old Jace and 2-year-old Kaiser, whose father is her ex-fiancé, Nathan Griffith.
Jenelle Evans began dating Griffith after her short-lived marriage to Courtland Rogers, and in January, 2015, the couple became engaged during a vacation to St. Thomas, which was filmed for an episode of Teen Mom 2. Just days into their engagement, Evans and Griffith began feuding, and weeks later, their relationship came to blows and a couple of arrests followed.
By the end of last summer, Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith had called it quits and as he moved on with Jessica Henry, she moved on with David Eason, who she is said to be expecting her third child with.
Less than one year into their relationship, Jenelle Evans told police that she was at least 10 weeks pregnant following a car accident earlier this month and while she has yet to confirm the news with her fans, she has discussed the backlash she’s received due to the news of her pregnancy.

On Facebook, Jenelle Evans shared a message with fans, revealing her critics had labeled her pregnancy “so sad” and “disappointing.” She also claimed fans wondered why she hadn’t had her tubes tied and why she had so many “baby daddies!”
“These are only some hate comments I have been receiving since yesterday. I don’t understand what is ‘disappointing’ or ‘sad’?! Why not ask if I’m ok from the car accident?!” Jenelle Evans asked her followers, as reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup last month. “Why not be concerned about my health?! I want privacy. All of you disgust me. It’s all about gossip these days … Funny someone else comes out with news they are pregnant and the world is overjoyed. And everyone wonders why I’m so private lately?! Because all of you are up my a** and so nosy it’s unbelievable.”
As rumors continue to swirl regarding her potential third child, Jenelle Evans and her boyfriend, David Eason, are staying quiet and many are wondering why. Is she not actually pregnant? Did she lie to police? While it is hard to say for sure what Jenelle Evans is thinking at this point, she may be contractually obligated to keep her pregnancy secret if she truly is with child as she did years ago when she was expecting her second child, Kaiser. That said, she would likely be able to deny she was pregnant if she wasn’t expecting.
Jenelle Evans and the cast of Teen Mom 2, including Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Messer, are currently filming the upcoming installment of the MTV series. No word yet on when it will air.
