This is Jenelle Evans, who we were first introduced to back in 2009 when she was just a wee little wisp of a pregnant teenager on MTV's "16 and Pregnant." She gave birth to her son, Jace Vahn Evans in 2009. She was separated from his father. She has had her share of tumultuous relationships since then, including friendships. As it turns out, she only keeps in contact with one of her previous "Teen Mom" co-stars, and not many else.

Jenelle Lauren Evans was born on December 19, 1991. Her claim to fame is her appearance on the MTV television show, "16 and Pregnant," on which she gave birth to son Jace. Jace stays with Evans' mother Barbara, only seeing him on every other weekend and for two weeks during school holidays. She is, however, planning on attempting to get full custody of Jace, who was removed from her care and still does not have custody of as of yet.

Her Relationships

Evans has had several relationships that have been rocky, to say the very least. Not only has she had a bit of a rocky relationship with her mother, but a multitude of men, as well. She is not with Jace's father, Andrew Lewis. However, in 2009, Jenelle married a man named Courtland Rogers. However, that relationship did not last too long, and the pair separated for two years, and formally divorced in 2012. She does not have any children with Rogers.

After divorcing Rogers in 2012, Evans found a new love in Nathan Griffith. In 2014, she gave birth to the couple's son, Kaiser Orion Griffith. The pair eventually split. Jenelle then married David Eason, and the couple has daughter Ensley together, who was born in 2017. It was speculated that all of the children were removed from their home after Eason supposedly shot the family dog, Nugget in October, 2019. They have since regained custody of two children. However, Evans and Eason are in the process of divorce.

She has said to pop culture that she is more than happy to keep a very small circle of friends, and she likes it that way, despite others reaching out to her to get together. She has admitted that she only occasionally speaks to Briana DeJesus, and even then, not that often. Former co-star Kailyn Lowry had reached out to Evans, who said, "I know that recently, Kail has reached out to me about a month or two ago asking me to be on her podcast, and I declined."

She Wants To Produce Her Own Show

Evans has shown interest in producing her very own show, since she has been off of MTV. Last month, Evans teased via Instagram about a show that is coming to YouTube. In an Instagram story, she tantalized viewers about something that was "coming soon," and that she was "doing some editing." In the video, it showed Ensley and Kaiser eating some ice cream sandwiches. Jenelle, who was the one who was holding the camera, urged Kaiser to say "Coming soon to Youtube!"
