Naturally, such an interesting premise is bound to raise curiosity around the reality stars’ lives, and thus, we decided to find out where the ‘Teen Mom 2’ cast is at present!
Where Is Jenelle Evans Now?
Jenelle Evans made her way onto the show as the mother of her son, Jace. Although Jace’s father was nowhere in the picture, her mother, Barbara, had full custody of her son, with Jenelle having limited visitation. In the years that followed, Jenelle was forced to navigate a tumultuous love life and faced several failed relationships. For starters, she married Courtland Rogers in 2012, and there were speculations about them having a child. However, months later, in January 2013, it was announced that the couple had split, and Jenelle reportedly had a miscarriage.
Subsequently, in June 2013, Jenelle began dating Nathan Griffith and moved in with him after a few months. Although the couple had frequent altercations, they were together for almost one and a half years and became parents to two children. The pair even got engaged in January 2015, but things weren’t meant to be. In August of the same year, the couple broke their engagement. Following a custody battle, the two agreed to have joint custody of their second child in January 2017.
A month after her breakup with Nathan, Jenelle began a relationship with David Eason before moving in with him and welcoming their first child in January 2017. They even got married in September of the same year, but the relationship soon soured as the couple was reportedly often involved in violent altercations. In 2019, Jenelle decided to leave David and even filed a restraining order against him. However, she later withdrew the restraining order and went back to David.
Surprisingly, the couple seems to be doing great at present, with the reality TV star mentioning that her relationship was finally peaceful. With David having two children from his previous marriage, the family appears to share a deep bond and love spending quality time together. Janelle even enjoys documenting their lives through social media and often posts beautiful family memories for her followers to witness.
However, the former teen mom revealed that she is living with fluid-filled cysts on her spinal cord, leading to pain, headache, and muscle weakness. Although she is trying her best to battle her health issues, Janelle asked her fans to pray for her quick recovery.
