Jenelle Admits to Smoking During the Early Weeks of Her Pregnancy
Recap of Teen Mom 2 Season 5, Episode 11 (April 1, 2014)
We've all been waiting for Jenelle Evans to whip up another baby in her easy-bake oven, and now Teen Mom 2's most controversial star is pregnant with her second child! We couldn't be more excited about following Jenelle's pregnancy on Teen Mom 2, and this week she had her very first doctor's appointment and ultrasound. So #blessed.
Jenelle and her newly blonde baby daddy, Nathan Griffith, were beyond thrilled to see their peanut-sized kiddo, but their checkup with the OB/GYN raised a few eyebrows. Basically, Jenelle admitted to smoking "one or two cigarettes a day" in the early weeks of her pregnancy (yikes!), but before you clutch your pearls in horror, fear not! Jenelle reassured the doctor and Nathan that she'd quit smoking ASAP, and stressed that she hadn't used any "street drugs."
"I smoke like one cigarette a day maybe," Jenelle told Nathan defensively. "I'm gonna quit, what I'm saying is at least I'm not one of these people that smoke two or three packs a day."
Jenelle makes a good point, but any amount of cigarette use can be harmful for a fetus. Hopefully she was able to quit shortly after this appointment!
Are you shocked to hear that Jenelle smoked during the beginning of her pregnancy, or are you willing to cut her some slack? Sound off below.
