Rumors have been swirling that Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is pregnant once again, so she decided to put the rumors to rest once and for all by taking a pregnancy test — during a live interview!
The Teen Momentous stick peeing went down during Jenelle’s conversation with Wetpaint Senior Editor Haley Longman as part of a Facebook Live interview. “We have a big surprise,” Haley reveals after introducing her guest, “we’re going to prove once and for all that she’s not pregnant.” She turns to Jenelle: “Tell us a little bit about why you want to do this.”
“I don’t know why, but rumors started circulating that I was pregnant with my fourth child,” Jenelle explains. “Number one, I’m on Mirena birth control, which is an IUD implant. And another reason they thought I was pregnant was because David posted a throwback picture of us in St. Thomas. Well, he put ‘V.I.’ and everyone thinks that means sick. It had nothing to do with that, it stands for Virgin Islands.”
Here’s the photo Jenelle is talking about:
Jenelle continues: “I want to put the rumors to rest because now a new post came out today saying that ‘We know Jenelle’s in fact pregnant, and she…will be six months pregnant at her wedding.’ So they’re still sticking to that rumor, and I’m, like, ‘Alright, let’s do it! Let’s take the pregnancy test!’ And if it is positive, it’s the first time I would know. But, I have an IUD, so…”
Haley is everybody when she excitedly replies: “Wouldn’t that be a plot twist?!”
“Dude! I would probably freak out,” says Jenelle.
Here’s the video before I forget:
At this point, Haley gives Jenelle the pregnancy test and Jenelle leaves to do what you do when you take a pregnancy test. The live interview then gets beautifully awkward as it seems they didn’t really think it through that Jenelle would be leaving. Haley points out that David Eason is in the room and she asks if he wants to chat in the meantime.
“Do I have to?” you can hear David ask off screen.
“No, you don’t have to,” Haley says, as it’s obvious David has no desire to chat on camera. At this point I am REALLY feeling for Haley! LOL But, she quickly regains herself and shifts ever so slightly towards the center of the half empty couch before coming up with some filler talk on the fly.
I’m going to take a quick break here to share this moment of live interview existentialism:
(Haley’s Wetpaint pal Olivia bails her out after a bit by taking Jenelle’s place on the couch.)
Eventually Jenelle does come back, and she has placed her pregnancy test back in the box for the reveal later. She and Haley talk about the prevalence of pregnancy rumors surrounding her, and Jenelle admits that it probably has a lot to do with the fact that she tried to cover up her pregnancy with Ensley last year.
Jenelle then reveals that Ensley will be her last child. “I’m done having kids,” she says. “I am planning to get my tubes tied when I have enough time to get around to that.” Jenelle says that David had considered getting a vasectomy, but he was concerned because the sperm gets absorbed back into the body. Jenelle was sympathetic and told him “That doesn’t sound right. I’ll get my tubes tied.”
OK, time for the BIG REVEAL!!
Jenelle takes the pregnancy test back out and holds it in front of the camera. It’s the digital variety and it clearly reads “NOT PREGNANT.”
I would say that we can put the Jenelle pregnancy rumors to rest, but I know them hatters can get really creative when it comes to Jenelle conspiracy theories! You know they are going to point out that we didn’t actually see Jenelle pee on the test — she could have had someone else do it for her, or perhaps even snuck in another identical pregnancy test taken by someone else prior to the interview. So many possibilities!
As for this blogger, however, it’s time to put these most recent Jenelle pregnancy rumors to bed and focus on all the real Teen Mom drama going on.
