North Carolina native Jenelle Evans has struggled with the law while trying to be a responsible mother for her son Jace on Teen Mom 2. And whenever there’s Jenelle trouble, her mother Barbara is never far behind.
Barbara Evans, with her quirky accent and boisterous charm, has become a bit of fan favorite on the show, even spawning a parody Twitter account that provides hilarious Babs-like commentary on the world of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2.
So what’s the origin of Barbara’s accent? Is Jenelle’s mom from Boston?
According to Jenelle’s marriage license, which was posted exclusively on Radar Online (view the full document here), Barbara was born in Massachusetts. We’re not sure if she’s from Boston itself, but her birthplace may explain her distinctly New England accent.
