Showing her support. Farrah Abraham told Us Weekly that she’s “proud” of pregnant Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans at an event in NYC on Friday, August 26.

“I’m actually really proud of her that she stopped doing drugs,” Abraham, 25, told Us at the Celebrity Gifting Lounge at Buffalo Wild Wings Times Square. “She definitely wants to try to find a better man to hopefully marry and have a bigger family with, if she wants to. … I see her taking the initiative to totally change up things to be more welcoming to her mom. That’s a hard thing thinking back to their past of her mom trying to take her child away.”

Evans, 24, who is expecting her third child — her first with boyfriend David Eason — showed off her growing baby bump and shared her latest pregnancy craving via a post to Instagram on Friday, August 26, sharing an image of herself in a blue-and-white striped dress and sunglasses snacking on a Minute Maid lemon ice on a park bench.

“Lemon Italian ice is my new thing,” she captioned the shot. Earlier in the week, she told Us that she also craves chocolate and ice cream. “I made David go at, like, 10 o’clock at night to the gas station just to get me some [ice cream],” she said.

Evans, who is expecting a girl, first revealed her pregnancy in a police report following a car crash that she and Eason were involved in back in July. According to the report, “the passenger in vehicle #1 stated that she is at least (10) weeks pregnant and complained of abdominal pain. She was transported to [a local hospital].”

Abraham told Us that she already suspected Evans might be pregnant before the reality star made her more public announcement.

“I actually think she knew [she was pregnant before Abraham’s birthday party in May] because she wasn’t drinking then, and they left early,” Abraham told Us. “I think everyone including myself was like, ‘Are you pregnant?’ Everyone there!”

Evans is already mom to Jace, 7, with ex Andrew Lewis, and Kaiser, 2, with ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith. (She is currently battling her mom, Barbara Evans, for custody of Jace.) Eason has a daughter, Maryssa, from a previous relationship.
