Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2 Is Pregnant With Second Boy, Picks Unusual Name With Boyfriend Nathan Griffith
Déjà Vu, it's a boy! Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is pregnant for the second time and has revealed to Us Weekly that she's expecting a second son come summer. The 21-year-old is 19-weeks along and due this June -- and her boyfriend Nathan Griffith couldn't be more excited.
"I was happy either way no matter what we were gonna have, but Nathan was especially excited because he’s a boy, so he was like jumping for joy," Evans told Us. "He's really, really excited to spoil him."
The MTV reality star broke the news to her opinionated mom, Barbara Evans, and 4-year-old son Jace while showing them her ultrasound.
"[Jace has] been talking about how he can teach him little boy things now," the North Carolina native revealed. "He said he can teach him how to play football, he said, 'I can teach him how to put on his clothes,' because we were talking about how he’s gonna get Jace’s old clothes when he grows out of them. So he’s really excited to help out."
Barbara Evans has full custody of grandson Jace; struggling with drug abuse and volatile relationships, Jenelle has been arrested 10 times in the past three years. Now, clean and sober, Jenelle is looking forward to a fresh start with baby boy number two.
And after 17 weeks of intense morning sickness, she's relieved that the worst of her nausea seems to be over, but her day-to-day life as a pregnant college student has left her exhausted.
"Recently I’ve been tired," she said. "I have to power through the days, because I go to school now on Tuesdays and Thursdays for medical clinical assisting."
But she's pretty energetic when it comes to welcoming her first child with Griffith, and they've even picked out an eccentric name -- Kaiser.
"We were basically searching for baby names on the Internet, and we came up with a bunch of different unique ones," she revealed. "We didn’t want something that everyone else had or had even heard before, even us. So we wanted something different, and we ended up looking up Kaiser."
Teen Mom 2 airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on MTV.
