Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is pregnant again. She confirmed to MTV today that she and her boyfriend Nathan Griffith are expecting next summer.
The 21-year-old says she's “feeling good about it” despite a ’round-the-clock case of morning sickness. “I’ve been exhausted this whole first trimester."
Jenelle Evans is also mother to 4-year-old Jace, who’s (sometimes) seen on Teen Mom 2 and currently under the custody of her mother, Barbara Evans.
She's been pregnant at least once before since giving birth to Jace.
Last winter, she memorably suffered a miscarriage following an epic fight and breakup with her husband Courtland Rogers (who she's still married to).
The star and Griffith met in June on a dating app and bonded immediately over their parenting struggles. Griffith has a 2-year-old daughter named Emery.
“His ex-wife’s parents have guardianship [of Emery], kind of like the situation I’m in,” Jenelle said. “He was like, ‘No one understands the situation I’m in."
"We both have to deal with our parents to deal with our children.”
Jenelle Evans recalled that the father of her future child almost didn’t give her a chance because of her recognizable name and her infamy on TM2.
“He thought that I was Catfishing him, and he wouldn’t meet me in person,” she revealed. “Eventually he came around, though, and [we] had an instant connection."
“We just want a child of our own that we can raise together as a family, and want a stable relationship for Jace and his daughter,” she said of Nathan Griffith.
“We just want to settle down.”
Evans, who’s struggled with drug abuse for years, seems confident that they have a shot at going the distance, especially since he doesn’t party like her exes.
“It works because he doesn’t like drugs, barely drinks, nothing like that,” she proudly declared of her man. “I have to get divorced first, of course."
“I’ve got my life together now, and I’m a different person from what they’ve seen,” she said. “I just can’t wait for them to see how much I’ve bettered my life."
"I understand if people judge me now, but they won’t judge me soon.”
Congratulations to the couple, and here's hoping she's right ...
