Former Teen Mom 2 star David Eason may be in the midst of a messy split from his estranged wife, Jenelle Evans, but that didn’t stop him from enjoying a night out with his daughter Maryssa and his nephew Wednesday night.
As Evans continues to keep a low profile — after confirming on October 31 that she plans to divorce Eason after two years of marriage — Eason has been quite active on his social media pages. In his latest Instagram post, he can be seen posing alongside his oldest child, 11-year-old Maryssa, whom he shares with an ex-girlfriend.
While Eason didn’t include his nephew in the photo, he confirmed in the comment section of the photo that his nephew was there. He also said that he and the children were at a fair in North Carolina.
Also in the comments section of his post, Eason was forced to fight back after a fan suggested that Maryssa looked uncomfortable as she posed alongside her father.
“Yea, she heard there was people who look like you talking about her on IG,” Eason replied.
After sharing his family photo on Wednesday, Eason faced some backlash from fans. However, others were quite supportive of Eason after his split from Evans. Some pointed out that he was looking great in the photo.
In addition to daughter Maryssa, Eason is also dad to a young son, Kaden, who he shares with another ex, and to two-year-old Ensley, who he shares with Evans. As fans of Teen Mom 2 will recall, Eason and Evans welcomed their daughter in January 2017, eight months before tying the knot at their home in North Carolina.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Evans initially announced her plans to divorce Eason on her Instagram page with a detailed message to fans explaining that after being booted from her full-time role on Teen Mom 2 earlier this year, she’s had a lot of time to re-assess her life and decided that leaving Eason was the best thing for her and her children.
In the very same statement, Evans, who was reportedly fired because Eason killed their dog, hinted that she and her family could soon return to Teen Mom 2 now that she’s made the decision to end her marriage to Eason.
“I appreciate the support from everybody who has asked how I am. me and the kids are doing great. We need some time to be together. But you’ll hear from us again soon,” she teased.
