Jenelle Evans – From Teen Mom to Influencer
Once upon a time, a young lass named Jenelle Evans found herself with child at the tender age of 17. She was then cast in the reality show 16 & Pregnant, which aimed to showcase the lives of pregnant teenagers on television. The first episode revealed how Jenelle relied on her mother to take care of her first son, Jace Vahn Evans, as she continued to party like it was 1999. Since Jace’s father was MIA, she was forced to give custody of her son to her mother, Barbara. Jenelle then appeared on another reality show called Teen Mom 2, which served as a continuation of 16 & Pregnant and showcased her lack of responsibility towards Jace. In the fifth season, she had her second son, Kaiser Orion Griffith. Throughout the series, Jenelle ended up in the slammer several times due to her behavior and illegal actions. Nowadays, she’s living with her three children (Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley) and her hubby David Eason, who is also the father of Ensley.

At the end of the show, Jenelle gave custody of her son Jace to her mother so she could focus on him with the support of her mother.
