Jenelle Evans has been the talk of the Teen Mom franchise for the past week. She was reportedly going to announce her pregnancy before the VMAs this weekend but instead opted to announce it early because her plans were leaked. She is expecting her third child with a third man. Evans is already a mom to six-year-old Jace, two-year-old Kaiser, and is due with a little girl early next year. After months of evading rumors of a pregnancy, everything is finally out in the open.
Rumors have been swirling for several months about Jenelle Evans. Various outlets were reporting that she was pregnant earlier this year but when she wasn’t sporting a baby bump by spring, things died down. According to a report from Us Weekly, Jenelle Evans opened up about suffering a miscarriage just one month before she became pregnant with her daughter. She didn’t know she was expecting, and the loss happened very early on. After suffering a medical mystery, her doctor realized she was pregnant after doing some blood work. Since it was a surprise and over quickly, she decided not to announce what had happened. There has been a lot of criticism for choices she has made regarding her children and opting to share her story would have caused more pain in an already delicate situation.
Back in July, Jenelle Evans’ pregnancy was outed by a police report that was pulled after she was in an accident with her boyfriend, David Eason. She was a passenger and when the report was taken, Evans admitted she was approximately 10 weeks pregnant. When the information was circulated, she took to Twitter to voice her distaste for how people were acting. She couldn’t understand why everyone was fixated on the pregnancy and not worried about whether or not she was okay. That started a short social media break for the Teen Mom 2 star. She returned to Facebook and Twitter just a few days later.
David Eason and Jenelle Evans are planning for a future. They currently live together and he is helping her to raise Kaiser. Barbara Evans still has custody of Jace, but he sees his mom on weekends. For now, they are still living in the home she shared with Nathan Griffith but have property where they are planning to build a home in the future. Evans hasn’t given too much information about it, just a little bit about the land she bought. The couple have decided to name their daughter Ensley Jolie Eason, and she will be born in early 2017.
The next several weeks will be interesting, especially watching how Jenelle Evans is going to cope with the comments that have flooded social media about her. There is plenty of judgment regarding the pregnancy. Fans have been commenting on the number of pregnancies she has experienced. She has two sons, has had at least one abortion but there are rumors there was a second at some point, a miscarriage, and now the new pregnancy. Evans has never been one of the favorite Teen Mom stars, and she definitely won’t be winning that title now.
Filming for the new season of Teen Mom 2 is happening now, and it appears that Jenelle Evans’ pregnancy reveal will happen when it airs. It is unclear when the new season will begin but speculation is sometime in the late fall or early winter. There have been a lot of ups and downs for her over the last year, but Evans is excited about what is ahead. She will finally have the daughter she has always wanted. Jenelle Evans has made a lot of mistakes in the past, but this pregnancy could be the event that finally keeps her on a straight path.
