'Teen Mom 2' star signs over custody of son

On Tuesday night’s episode of “Teen Mom 2,” viewers will have a chance to see a different side of one outspoken and at times out-of-control young parent.

Jenelle Evans, who just two episodes into the series has already made a name for herself when it comes to bad behavior and mother-daughter fights, has an unexpected, on-air change of heart in her ongoing temporary custody battle for baby Jace. After threatening her own mom when the heated subject of Jace’s custody has come up in the past, Jenelle decides that just maybe her mom is right, and Jace really would be better off with his grandma as his guardian for now.

“When you kicked me out, I realized I can’t take care of Jace on my own yet because I can’t even support myself,” Jenelle explains in a sneak peek for the upcoming episode available on Usmagazine.com. “I am going to start making changes, but I'm just going to sign over custody because I’m not going to go through all this court and all this money just to get the final decision from a judge.”

Also coming up on Tuesday night’s episode, somewhat self-reliant mom Chelsea Houska sees teen dad Adam step into a fatherly role and take care of his baby daughter’s basic needs. Watch her discovery in this sneak peek:

To find out how Jenelle’s mom reacts to the custody news and just how far new dad Adam has really come, watch “Teen Mom” on Jan. 25 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
