LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jenelle Evans, the 'Teen Mom' alum has finally received full custody of her 13-year-old son Jace. He lived with Barbara Evans, her mother, for a long time before this. Jenelle's relationship with her mother, which was already strained, allegedly worsened after she gave birth to her son Jace in September 2009. Barbara took over the child's care while the 'Teen Mom' star allegedly partied, putting a strain on their already tense relationship.


Jace is Jenelle's son from her previous relationship and now after many years, he will go on to live with his mother and her husband David Eason. The MTV star took to social media to announce the happy news and has also revealed that her mother Barbara is ready to "move on" and spend time on herself.

The 'Teen Mom' alum has recently announced on her Instagram that she is finally reuniting with her son, Jace, years after she handed his custody to her mother Barbara. She wrote, "#MyHappyEnding, ITS OFFICIAL! Thanks, everyone for the support! Words can't describe how happy I truly am. Our family is complete now! Thank you, mom."

The reality star has also revealed that her mother is happy to let Jace be with his siblings and is ready to enjoy some time alone without the responsibilities. She said, "She's completely fine as she's ready to go on a cruise. She and her friends already have it planned." Jenelle also shared that Barbara is excited to have her freedom back and wants to start a new chapter in her life. Earlier Jenelle had revealed to US Weekly that Barbara and she had made the joint decision to transfer the custody as Barbara feels Jace needs his mother and a father figure in his life. 



Jenelle Evans' custody woes over the years

Soon after giving birth to Jace, Jenelle handed her mother legal custody of him. On the 2010 episode of 'Teen Mom', '16 and Pregnant', a major development was broadcasted. At the time the reality star came to the realization that she required her mother's assistance at the time to care for her son while she partied. Soon Jenelle got involved in drugs like heroin and had a series of bad relationships some involving alleged domestic violence. Barbara and Jenelle have fought back and forth regarding Jace's custody and Jenelle was often accused by her mother of not spending enough time with Jace.


Jenelle had not invited her mother to her wedding with David as her mother had refused to hand over Jace's custody and Jenelle had revealed she can't forget that. In the past, Jenelle had alleged that Jace's behavior had worsened while in the custody of her mother as he had even gone as far as starting a fire and had claimed he would be better off living with her.

Over the years CPS has been in and out of Jenelle's house due to rumors of her parenting. In May 2019 Jenelle and her husband temporarily lost the custody of Kaiser and Ensley. An investigation had opened up after David allegedly shot and killed their dog Nugget. He was taken by the authorities from his preschool and given to his father Nathan. Previously, Nathan had demanded full custody of his son following Jenelle's road rage incident when she pulled out a gun with Jace in her car. A few days after taking Kaiser, a judge ruled that Jenelle's daughter Ensley and David's daughter, Maryssa, must be taken from their care. After all these battles, Jenelle finally has her whole family under one roof.
