Jenelle Evans Regained Custody Of Jace Earlier This Year
This post comes a little over four months after Jenelle Evans regained custody of Jace after nearly 13 years, as The Shade Room previously reported.
She shared the news via Instagram on Mar. 18, showing her making the matter official before tearfully proclaiming, “It’s done.”
In a statement to Us Weekly, Jenelle said that the move was a major step in her and Barbara building their mother-daughter relationship.
“My mom and I decided together to grant full custody back to me because we want to build our relationship back as mother and daughter.”
Jenelle was sure to add that Barbara “agrees it’s time” for Jace to live with his mother, stepfather, and siblings. She noted that her husband, David Eason, would help Jace “learn ‘boy things’ and have ‘men talk.’”
“Also, my mother agrees it’s time for Jace to be back with his siblings and living with a mother and father. She also thinks it’s important for Jace to be around a father figure to learn ‘boy things’ and have ‘men talk.’ She has seen the way David parents my children and she knows we’re able to handle it.”
As Teen Mom 2 fans will remember, a massive argument broke out in the very first episode of the series when Barbara filed to take custody of Jace.
While the pair had an up-and-down relationship over the years, it looks like they’ve mended fences now that they’re out of the spotlight.
