Jenelle Evans Says She’s Ready to Be a Mom (Again): “We Know We Can Do This”
Denizens of Planet Fun were shocked (shocked!) when Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans announced her second pregnancy, and the time has come to learn what was going through her head when she decided to go off birth control. This girl has faced a lot of criticism for purposefully getting pregnant despite not having custody of her first child, Jace, and she sat down with MTV to explain herself. Oh, and her baby daddy, Nathan Griffith, got in on the action too!
"We know we can do this," Jenelle said during Teen Mom 2's Season 5, Episode 5 after show. "Everyone thinks, 'Oh, they don't have custody of their children.' Well, it doesn't matter. We both know we didn't even get the opportunity to even try to raise our children and prove to people that we could. We just got them taken away."
Ultimately, Jenelle and Nathan want kids, and they think they're more than ready to be great parents! "We have that opportunity to prove to people that we are ready. And we can be good parents, and we can also stay stable," Jenelle continued. "We can do it all."
Jenelle says that Nathan is already an amazing father to his daughter, Emery, and an amazing step-dad to Jace. Sure, these two are young and have an iffy history when it comes to child rearin', but we have a feeling they'll be great parents to lil' Kaiser. Because, yes, that is what they're naming their love child.
Do you think Jenelle and Nathan are ready to be parents? Sound off below.
