A "Teen Mom" showed off her belly ring -- while pregnant. That "Teen mom" would be Jenelle Evans. On Jan. 23, NewsOXY re-posted a photo that Evans uploaded to Instagram earlier in the week. Evans found a "Baby on Board" belly ring and thought it was cute so she snapped a pic of it to share with all of her followers. But, as NewsOXY points out, having a belly ring while pregnant can be dangerous.

"Pregnant mothers have to be careful about belly button piercing during their pregnancy, because as the skin covering the belly begins to stretch, the area around the ring may become irritated, painful, and prone to infection," the site reported. Hopefully Jenelle is mindful of that.

The "Teen Mom's" belly ring got a ton of attention but it's not exactly clear why. The idea is sort of cute and a lot of Jenelle's fans liked it, but a lot of other people seemed to think it was the perfect way to insult the 21-year-old reality star.

Jenelle has had a tough couple of years since she gave birth to her son, Jace, who is now 4. She has struggled with addiction and has had plenty of unhealthy relationships -- but she seems happy now and she's excited to welcome another baby. She and beau Nathan Griffith will find out the gender of their baby next week. And if it's a girl, Jenelle said that she already has a belly ring with a pink birthstone in it (for the month of June, presumably when she is due).

Check out the "Teen Mom's" belly ring in the pic above.
