Hallelujah, Ugg-wearing angels are singing from on high! Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans has finally confirmed her pregnancy after reports surfaced on January 16 that she and her new hubby, Courtland Rogers, have a bun in the oven.
"I know a lot of people will say we’re not ready, or judge me from my past," 21-year-old Jenelle tells MTV. "I want to prove to everyone that I can do this." Jenelle recently said she wouldn't try for another baby until regaining custody of her 3-year-old son, Jace (who lives with her mom, Barbara), but it looks like she's had a change of heart. "This wasn’t planned, but it happened so we’re taking it as we go," Jenelle explains. "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."
Last time we checked, Jenelle was on birth control pills — but they're only effective if taken every day. “I missed a few birth control pills, and found out I was pregnant at a doctor’s appointment," Jenelle says. "I was really surprised.”
Jenelle hopes that successfully raising her new kiddo will help her regain custody of Jace, and it looks like Barbara is in agreement! "My mother and I had the best conversation yesterday about getting Jace back in the future," Jenelle tweeted on January 17. "Everything is looking up for me!"
Congratulations, PB and Jenelley! We'll head over to Olive Garden and eat a million plates of Alfredo in your honor.
