Another day, another Teen Mom baby announcement. Where’s that Dr. Drew when you need him?
Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans is pregnant again. The MTV mom is expecting a baby with boyfriend Courtland Rogers; this despite the fact that her son Jace is currently living with and being cared for by her mother. Evans has a storied history with drug addiction dating back to 2011. The 21-year-old reportedly spent the Thanksgiving holiday in a North Carolina rehabilitation center after her mother caught her shooting heroin in the family’s home.
It was proud papa Courtland who confirmed the baby news to Radar Online on Wednesday. Rogers says Evans hopes to use Baby No. 2 to “prove” that she’s stable enough to regain custody of her eldest son.
“Me and Jenelle are so happy that she’s pregnant. She told me, ‘I’m looking forward to a second chance.’ She thinks if she can prove that she’s a good mother, she can get Jace back.”
The baby is due Sept. 4.
Oh — did we mention that Courtland’s ex-girlfriend currently has custody of his daughter JaJa?
