Jenelle Evans Talks Pregnancy; Why She Wants A Baby With Nathan Griffith


I cannot wrap my brain around the fact that Jenelle Evans is pregnant again – and on purpose. The Teen Mom 2 star and Nathan Griffith – the father of the bun in the oven – have been dating for six months. They met online right after Jenelle and Courtland Rogers – the estranged husband – were arrested for a slew of things, including assault and heroin possession, on April 23. Courtland went to jail, Jenelle went to a dating website.

Jenelle reached out to Nathan after learning that he, too, has a child from a previous relationship – and no custody rights.  "His ex-wife's parents have guardianship [of Emery, 2], kind of like the situation I'm in. He was like, 'No one understands the situation I'm in and that I deal with,'  and I said that I could relate to him. We both have to deal with our parents to deal with our children." 

So, despite the fact that Jenelle and Nathan do not take care of the children they already have, they thought having a baby together would be an excellent idea. Jenelle told MTV,  “We just want a child of our own that we can raise together as a family.  We want a stable relationship for Jace and Emery.  We just want to settle down.” I weep for these kids – born to such selfish parents. 


Jenelle went on to say she is in a good place mentally.  "I think it would scare me more if I was in the situation I was when I had Jace.  Now I'm in a stable relationship and I have my own place, my own car, a job. I can pay my own bills. I'm just happy with my life right now." On what planet does she have a job?

According to a recent tweet, Jenelle learned she was pregnant on October 28, and my guess is that she's due early to mid June. Nathan and Jenelle plan to marry next summer. Captain Obvious added, "I have to get divorced first."

Jenelle's anxious for fans to watch her go from heroin addict (season four) to healthy mom-to-be (season five) on Teen Mom 2.  "I've got my life together now, and I'm a different person from what they've seen. I just can't wait for them to see how much I've bettered my life. I understand if they judge me now, but they won't judge me soon." 

Teen Mom 2 returns to MTV next month.
