'Teen Mom 2's' Jenelle Evans pregnant again
Updated at 6 p.m. ET: "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans is pregnant again, she confirmed to MTV's Act blog.
"I missed a few birth control pills, and found out I was pregnant at a doctor’s appointment. I was really surprised," she said.
Star magazine broke the news with an exclusive interview her husband, Courtland Rogers. According to the interview (via Radar Online), Rogers told the publication, "Me and Jenelle are so happy that she's pregnant."
"I know a lot of people will say we’re not ready, or judge me from my past," Jenelle told MTV's Act in a phone interview. "I want to prove to everyone that I can do this. This wasn’t planned, but it happened so we’re taking it as we go. Courtland and I are happy and excited now. We have our own place, we’re married and we’re both working. We know having a child can be difficult, but we’re going to do our best.
Radar goes on to say the 21-year-old is due Sept. 4. (Ironically, Jenelle tweeted on Jan. 5, "no I'm not prenant lol.") According to the gossip website, Rogers told Star in its exclusive interview that "She (Jenelle) told me, 'I'm looking forward to a second chance."
That second chance Courtland refers to taps into a point of inevitable outrage over the new pregnancy: Jenelle does not have custody of her first child, son Jace. Her mother, Barbara Evans, received sole custody of the toddler after Jenelle's repeated problems with drug use and the law ... problems that have not been put in the past, either. During the season of "Teen Mom 2" currently airing on MTV, Jenelle has failed drug tests that were part of the terms of her probation, and needed to be bailed out of jail on one occasion.
While Jenelle's legal problems play out on television, her marital problems have been playing out on Twitter. Jenelle and Courtland married Dec. 4, but after just 26 days, all signs indicated that Jenelle left her new husband. The two did reunite; maybe there will be a happy ending after all.
Jenelle's announcement is not the first pregnancy announcement from the second "Teen Mom" series. In December, Leah Messer announced she's expecting her third baby.
