Wheew! after an intense custody battle, Jenelle Evans’ finally gotten her baby back! The ‘Teen Mom’ star had to settle for a custody agreement with her mother, Barbara Evans, over her 7-year-old son Jace. The 25 year old star is finally going to be spending quality time with her little boy and she couldn’t be happier about it! Jenelle wasn’t able to see her mini me for five long week. The screen diva has reunited with her 7-year-old son, Jace Evans, after reaching a custody agreement with her estranged mother, Barbara Evans. The more than excited mum had this to say (according to E!): “It felt amazing to finally be reunited. He was so happy he didn’t even know what to do first when he got home. I was nervous a little bit because I didn’t want Jace thinking it was me that didn’t want to visit with him, but when he arrived everything was back to the way it used to be.” Jenelle’s fiancé David Eason, his daughter Maryssa, Jenelle’s son Kaiser and the couple’s newborn daughter Ensley Jolie were also around to welcome him! “I did cry but not around anyone except for David,” Jenelle said, emotionally. “I didn’t want any of the kids thinking I was upset. Lots of hugs and kisses we’re going around all weekend!”
Jenelle went on to say Jace “acted as if he hasn’t missed a beat,” while the family enjoyed riding bikes and four wheels, hiking in the woods and heading over to the beach! “Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend”. She went on to reveal that it won’t be easy having all the kids together at once! “Even though having all four kids on our weekends is a lot, I love being a mom and love the responsibility.”
In case you missed, Jenelle Evan has been trying to win back her parental rights over seven-year-old son Jace for years after signing over custody to her mom Barb back when he was a baby. Back in May 24 she was denied full parental rights yet again after a mediator ruled that the boy will remain with his grandma. In a former interview with E! she said “I’m not restricted to when my mom says I can have my son anymore, and at the moment that’s all I care about. [I] just want to spend time with my son. He will be home one day but today wasn’t the day, sadly. I’m really happy we could come to a decision for Jace but it doesn’t change my feelings towards my mom. She still isn’t giving up my son to me but I will fight again in the future when the time is right.”
We’ve seen first hand how strained the relationship is between Jenelle and Barb, as she called her mom a “b*tch” to Teen Mom 2 producers during a Mar. 6. episode after a miscommunication happened involving the handing off of Jace. She started screaming at her mom in front of her son, which was SO unhealthy for the little boy to see. He looked so sad and hurt while watching his mother scream into the phone. The reality star is more than happy to have him back.
