Jenelle Evans is pregnant again, and while that is reason to celebrate for the former "Teen Mom" star, wetpaint.com reported on Jan. 18 that Evans also admitted to recent drug use in her struggle to stay sober.
The good news in this case is that Evans said she has been clean for two months now, since she was admitted to a hospital in November. The problems in her life allegedly comes from an addiction to heroine, and the reality television star has both denied those charges and accepted that she has a problem. The truth, probably, lies somewhere in the middle.
However, the great news for the baby is that Evans said she has been clean since that hospital visit. According to wetpaint.com, Evans is seven weeks pregnant, which put the conception date in December. So, if Evans really has stayed clean like she claims, she has not poisoned her body, and that of her baby, with any drugs since the conception.
Of course, Evans has struggled with her drug dependency problems for quite a while now, and one hopes that at the age of 21, with one child here and another on the way, that could push her to finally straighten out her life. Fans of hers from "Teen Mom" have to hope that is the case.
