Jenelle Evans is Pregnant Again
Saturday, January 19th, 2013
16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 star Janelle Evans is pregnant with her second child. The 21-year-old reality star has had a hard couple of years after the birth of her first son, Jace. She admitted to smoking pot while pregnant, was unsure of the paternity of her son, and has had several run-ins with the law. After a stint in rehab, she lost custody of her son to her mother, Barbara.
After falling off the gossip radar, she popped back up saying she was engaged to Courtland Rogers. They had a shotgun wedding this past December, and recently broke the news that they are expecting. Courtland says, “Me and Jenelle are so happy that she’s pregnant. She told me, ‘I’m looking forward to a second chance.' She thinks if she can prove that she’s a good mother, she can get Jace back.” According to reports, Courtland also has a daughter, Jordan, of whom he does not have custody.
Now I am not typically someone who will judge or begrudge anyone who is pregnant. Being a mother is one of the biggest blessings I have in my own life. With that said, I feel bad for everyone involved in this situation. While it is possible for people to change and Jenelle can end up being a wonderful parent, her past acts show that she will have an uphill battle. If she even retains custody, according to some reports her mother could petition for immediate custody, she will have to certainly walk the straight and narrow. Her first pregnancy did not change her behavior and she was reportedly still doing heroin this past November. I just hope that she can get her act together and that this baby does not end up with the same fate as his or her brother.
What do you think about her announcement?
