Talking to MTV, Jenelle said she was surprised to find out she was pregnant after missing just "a few" birth control pills, adding, "I know a lot of people will say we’re not ready, or judge me from my past. I want to prove to everyone that I can do this. This wasn’t planned, but it happened so we’re taking it as we go."
"Courtland and I are happy and excited now," Jenelle continued. "We have our own place, we’re married, and we’re both working. We know having a child can be difficult, but we’re going to do our best.” After the news broke, Courtland tweeted, "Feels great to be sober and actually get to experience all of this!!! Especially with my WIFE!! @PBandJenelley_1 I love u so much!"

Yesterday, Courtland shared their first ultrasound picture, adding, "Jenelle says she feels really different this time being pregnant [morning sickness and back pain] so she thinks she's having a girl. We like the name
Ke$ha Audriana, we've been saying that for a long time."
Despite the long time they've favored the name Audriana, Courtland apparently grew tired of it overnight. This morning, he tweeted, "I wanna name her
Ke$ha Brooklynn if its a girl babe @PBandJenelley_1 that's my final answer 😉 but of course what u say goes in the end 😉 love u!"
“Jenelle is showing a little bit,” Courtland added. “She looks so cute. She used to be a skinny 105 pounds but now she weighs 115 pounds and she has a cute little baby bump!”
Whether or not Jenelle fulfills her promise to prove she's ready for motherhood (by regaining custody of Jace and raising baby Ke$ha) remains to be seen. Obviously, she isn't going to turn into mother of the year overnight. Hopefully Jenelle is at least trying to take baby steps in the right direction. One thing is for sure… Jenelle's relationship with her mother Barbara Evans has vastly improved.
Jenelle and Courtland were all about Barbara's lasagna this week! Jenelle tweeted, "Family dinner at Babs tonight with the babies and my Yankee family, lol. Hate on it, go ahead cuz I'll be laughing eating lasagne!" Later, Courtland tweeted, "Bout to eat some of Barbara's lasagne!!!! Me and @PBandJenelley_1 are playin with Jace and Legos lol!! Great night so far."
The next day, Jenelle blogged, "Courtland and I went to dinner at my mom's with my family. My aunt was there with my uncle from NY and my cousins from NJ. We ate this fantastic lasagne homemade by Barbara. Everyone met Courtland for the first time and were very happy for me and said we look so healthy."
