Jenelle Evans is expanding her family. The Teen Mom 2 star and her husband will welcome their first child together this fall, which means Jenelle’s son, Jace, and Courtland’s daughter, Jordan, will both be getting a little brother or sister — and speaking of Jace, Jenelle is sure that his new baby will help her regain custody.
“Me and Jenelle are so happy that she’s pregnant,” her husband Courtland Rogers tells Star Magazine. “She told me, ‘I’m looking forward to a second chance.’”
As part of that second chance, Jenelle is hoping that she will prove to everyone (especially the court system) that she deserves to have custody of her son. “She thinks if she can prove that she’s a good mother, she can get Jace back,” Courtland adds.
And that just may work. Jenelle is married now and if she’s staying clean and staying focused on her family and her work, that will definitely weigh heavily in her case to get Jace back. However, she’s still going to need the money to get to court, which she recently told fans she didn’t quite have.
According to the mag, Jenelle is about six weeks along and her due date has been set for September 4 — the couple’s nine month wedding anniversary, which means they could have actually conceived their baby on their wedding night right after they celebrated at Jenelle’s favorite hang out — the Olive Garden!
Just yesterday, Jenelle hinted that she was staying clean for more than just the sake of being drug-free. She wrote, “I’ve been clean for months now and there’s a reason.”
Congratulations to Jenelle and Courland on their new addition!
