TEEN MOM 2 Jenelle Evans details joyous reunion with Jace


Jenelle Evans is beyond excited after sharing the first weekend with her son, Jace, since reaching a new custody agreement with her mom, Barbara Evans.

The Teen Mom 2 star spoke with E! about how the Memorial Day weekend reunion went, what her plans are with Jace moving forward and where her relationship, or lack thereof, stands with Barbara.

Jenelle on the weekend and doing her best to keep her emotions in check:

It felt amazing to finally be reunited. He was so happy he didn’t even know what to do first when he got home. I was nervous a little bit because I didn’t want Jace thinking it was me that didn’t want to visit with him, but when he arrived everything was back to the way it used to be… I did cry but not around anyone except for David. I didn’t want any of the kids thinking I was upset. Lots of hugs and kisses we’re going around all weekend!

Jenelle added that she “couldn’t have asked for a better weekend” as she detailed Jace’s budding relationship with her fiancé, David Eason. “Jace always gets along with everyone and adores David,” she said. “David teaches Jace a lot of ‘guy’ things that I don’t even know about! Not to mention Jace and David’s daughter are best friends.”

David and Jenelle had a full house: Jace was welcomed by his mom, Eason, his brother Kaiser, David’s daughter Maryssa, and little sister Ensley.

Speaking of Ensley, we just had to include this adorable pic Jenelle shared of her “little pineapple.”


When asked about Barbara, Jenelle made it clear that she has no intention of trying to patch things up at this point. “I don’t have much interaction with Barbara anymore,” she explained. “I only speak to her at our drop offs and that’s it. I do not discuss the details of my life with her anymore and it will continue to be that way probably for the rest of my life.”

On a side note it looks, like Babs feels the same way. She told Radar that “Jenelle is into the fame and the fortune and now David is too.” Babs added, “I don’t care what people think about me. I act the same way on and off camera…I don’t hate Jenelle. I don’t like her. I love her, she’s my child, but I don’t like her.”

Fans of the show know there’s a whole bunch of water under that bridge–but, hopefully, someday Jenelle and Barbara will figure it out and get along well. Until then, Jenelle seems content; she concluded, “I wouldn’t trade my life with anyone. Having them [the four kids] all together at once makes me so happy to see everyone playing and bonding.”

    • sysmjp

      Riiiight. She looks nervous as s#*t.

    • LoLo

      Marissa is there to babysit.

  • Kate

    I’m really not a Jenelle fan, and especially not an Uncle Bad Touch fan, but holy hell is Ensley ever adorable. Poor girl.

    • Cait Sith

      I was thiking the same

    Wait did Jenelle say the same thing about Nathan & Gary teaching Jace “guy” things? Good thing Jenelle never had to keep track of the things she says cause she rinses and repeats.

  • Karina

    This child is just a publicity stunt for her. So sad.

    • LoLo

      Yes & the bulk of her comments about him were really about how great David is.

    The dogs tail looks broken???????????

    If Jenelle was serious about her SON, not about publicity or hurting her mom or whatever it is she is doing, she would have had consistently clean drug tests, NOT gotten in brawls with everyone who looks at her the wrong way, and would have kept anyone with a criminal record or who does drugs OUT of her life completely in order to be squeaky clean and get her son back.

    But she doesn’t really want him back. She wants him to be away from Barb, because she wants to hurt her.

    Also, why is she allowed animals again? Didn’t she get charged with animal abuse? Jenelle shouldn’t have any living thing left in her care, not even a houseplant.

      My best friend went through a custody battle & her ex had to be tested before & after each visit & not a urine test as those can be altered. He had to do a hair clip testing. She had to pay for it but didn’t care. From the hair they can tell how long ago you used. She went that route because her 3 yr old told her that “dad smoked out of a jar”.

    She makes it sounds like its been YEARS since she seen Jace LOL
    The moment the cameras are off, she won’t see Jace until she comes back from vacation haha

      When Jenelle was pregnant with Keiser, Barb came over & they were talking about slowly giving her more time with Jace. Barb said well when schools out you can get him more & Jenelle replied “well maybe when the baby is older because I will be tired” (paraphrasing of course). Mom’s have to take care of their kids even when they are tired. Barb said something about not wanting to take Jace out of his school & mentioned Jenelle living to far away. What does Jenelle then do? She moves even further away. Yeah, she really wants him back…

      Back when Keiser was a baby we always saw Nathan taking care of him & fixing bottles etc. All we saw of Jenelle was her letting him scream in the crib & complaining about him.

    Jenelle makes it about how great David is. He will always come first. She tweeted that having all the kids there was “a lot”. I wonder how she would handle having them all full time. I feel bad that the 3 of them get shuffled from place to place (Marissa, Keiser & Jace).
