Jenelle Evans is expecting baby number two to make his or her debut later this year (Sept. 4, to be exact), but sadly, the "Teen Mom 2" cast member has yet to regain custody of her first-born son, Jace. Jace, 3, was removed from Jenelle's care due to the young mom's persistant legal troubles and irresponsible behavior, often captured by MTV cameras for all the world to see.
With Jenelle Evans pregnant again, expecting her second child with a new man, we can only hope her past in no indication of her future. Read on this story below the jump, and click here for more, including Jenelle's very first baby bump photos.
Despite her troubled past, the 21-year-old "Teen Mom 2" star has high hopes for her future, tweeting, "Everything is looking up for me!". Jenelle also shared an Instagram photo of her barely-there baby bump, taken herself in a mirror.
She also happily tweeted that her mother, who has custody of Jace, had discussed with her the possibility of getting her son back eventually.
Jenelle is reportedly about seven weeks pregnant, presumably by her new husband Courtland Rogers. The "Teen Mom 2" star married Courtland in a courthouse ceremony last month, some say in an effort to avoid being called to testify against her man in his upcoming felony criminal case. Sources with knowledge of the laws that would pertain to the case say this tactic wouldn't work anyway, as Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers were not husband and wife when he allegedly committed the crime.
Despite reports that the couple broke up a few weeks after their Dec. 5 courthouse nuptials, the pair are actually very much together, at least according to Courtland. With Jenelle Evans pregnant with her second baby, she's going to need all the support she can get.
