Just a few days after Teen Mom 2 mom and dad Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith were photographed together celebrating their son Kaiser’s first birthday, Jenelle confirms that the two are officially back together, although they are “taking it slow.”
Jenelle and her Teen Mom 2 co-stars Chelsea Houska and Kailyn Lowry are currently in New York City doing press for the new season, which debuts July 9, and the JeNathan reconciliation confirmation came in an interview with Wetpaint.
“We are back together, we’re just taking it very slow because we don’t need to jump into it,” Jenelle says. “We don’t want to end up back where we were. So, we’re just taking little baby steps.”
But isn’t Nathan living somewhere else? “He does have his own place that he got, his own apartment,” Jenelle admits, “but he got that while we were separated, and now he’s been spending the night every, you know, two to three times a week. And, I mean, that’s good with me. Like I said, take baby steps.”
Jenelle says her emphasis has mostly been on her children. “I’ve just been trying to spend time with the kids, focus on the kids,” she says.
So did she wade into the dating pool at all while she and Nathan were separated? “Yeah, I did download Tinder and I had it for two months,” Jenelle says, as Chelsea and Kailyn laugh (top photo). “I went on one date, and it was, like, for two hours. That’s it. And I had many other opportunities, but honestly, I kept feeling like I was cheating on Nathan, so I couldn’t do it.”
In addition to her comments, Jenelle made it clear she and fiance Nathan are back together by proudly sporting her sizable engagement ring once again during the interview:
Wetpaint then asks, “Do you plan on watching your ups and downs with Nathan this season?”
And, unfortunately for those of us who enjoy live tweeting along with Jenelle, it looks like she will be finding something else to do on Thursday nights. “I basically already told him I don’t want to watch this season, and I probably won’t,” Jenelle says, “And [Nathan] said the same thing.”
So–I guess we can all restart our wedding countdown clocks! One thing’s for sure — those Teen Mom 2 ladies are lookin’ damn good y’all! We shared some NYC photos earlier today, but here are a couple more, as well as a step-and-repeat video clip with Kail and Jenelle:
