Jenelle Evans took to YouTube to update her fans about her life, revealing that she has reunited with her husband, David Eason. Not only that, but the former Teen Mom 2 star opened up about her plans to regain custody of her oldest son, Jace.

After a fan asked Jenelle if her mother, Barbara Evans — who currently has custody of Jace — will let her have him full-time, she revealed that she is currently trying to “convince” her mom otherwise.

“Right now, Jace lives with my mom. Of course, everyone knows that. I am slowly trying to convince her, once again, to just let Jace live with me so I don’t have to take her to court. It costs a lot of money. Everyone has to testify on the stand when you go to custody court and that’s not fun.”

She went on to explain that she would like to be able to settle the custody issue with her mom without any conflict.

“I don’t want to throw dirt back and forth,” the mom-of-three said. “I just would like to settle it civilly.”

Barbara has had custody of Jenelle’s son since he was a baby. Over the years, the former reality star has talked about potentially regaining custody of her son, but hasn’t gone back to court to do so.

While Jenelle co-parents with her mom, she also does the same with her ex-boyfriend, Nathan Griffith. In her YouTube update, she also opened up about how co-parenting with him is going at the moment.

“It’s fine, I mean has hasn’t really seen Kaiser much since we moved back to North Carolina, cause he’s in Florida and his mom is in Tennessee so Kaiser just FaceTimes with Nathan as of right now,” she explained.

While she revealed that she has plans to regain custody of Jace, that wasn’t the most shocking part of the video, as she also confirmed her reunion with Eason. She had left him last October and took her two youngest kids — one of which she shares with David — and moved to Tennessee. However, she revealed that the two have reunited and that they are taking it “slowly.”

It is unclear how things will turn out for Jenelle in regards to custody of Jace, who will turn 11 years old later this year. For now, she has been posting videos and photos of him spending time with her and her family during visitation periods.
