Jenelle Evans Under Fire (Again) For Having All Three Kids Call David Eason “Dad”
Jenelle Evans has lots of daddy issues.
Sure, she and her biological father haven’t spoken since she was a kid, but we’re talking about the Teen Mom 2 star having three kids with three different baby daddies. It can’t be easy!
But now, she’s coming under fire for having her two oldest children call David Eason “dad” — even though he’s just their stepdad.
As Wetpaint reported, Jenelle and David got married on September 23 in the backyard of their North Carolina home.
All of their collective children — her sons Jace, 8, and Kaiser, 3, his daughter Maryssa, 9, and Ensley, the 8-month-old baby girl they share — walked down the aisle and had a grand old time.
And it seems like this big blended family is already getting along great, so much so that Jace and Kaiser might already be calling their new stepfather “dad!”
“Ta-daaaaa! They built a fort yesterday with the help of Capt. Dad,” the 25-year-old captioned the above photo.
But some fans were not too keen on her word choice.
“Which dad though?” one fan asked in the comments.
“I would be pissed if I was their real dad and read this caption,” another said.
Jace’s biological father is Andrew Lewis, who hasn’t been in his son’s life since birth. Kaiser’s father, of course, is Jenelle’s ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith.
And believe it or not, this is the second time in just as many weeks that the newlywed has come under fire for her parenting skills.
Last week, fans hated on the mom of three for posting this photo of Maryssa, Jace and Kaiser in a hot tub. Some experts (and parents) think kids shouldn’t go in jacuzzis because it raises their body temperatures too high.
But the Read Between the Lines author is totally unbothered, lovin’ life with her new hubby, with whom she just celebrated their two-year dating anniversary.
“David still makes me this happy,” she captioned this throwback shot.
It’s clear he makes her boys happy, too — but maybe for now they should just stick to calling him David?
