In case there were any doubts that Jenelle Evans' new boo is here to stay, here's a photo that will slay those misgivings immediately. Will you please look at this adorable snapshot Jenelle took of Nathan holding a sleeping Jace? Daww! So much sweetness we can hardly take it. Couldn't she have thrown in a prominent tattoo or some duck lips or something to mitigate all the sugary cuteness happening here?
I mean ... this is what it's all about, amirite ladies? Sure Jenelle and Nate have hot monkeys-on-the-ceiling-sex (I'm just going by what she says ...), but she's had plenty of sweet action with her other men. This, on the other hand, is what makes Nathan more than the flavor of the week.
Nathan is cradling the most important thing in Jenelle's life: Her son. For a guy to care for another man's son is a big deal. It happens all the time, of course. But it's still a big deal. The social anthropologists will tell you it's going against their instincts, but social anthropology is bunk anyway. Still, we wouldn't be seeing Nathan this way if he weren't completely sincere about being a part of Jenelle's life in a serious way.
And there almost isn't anything hotter than seeing a guy cuddle a child. Don't you love how Nathan's eyes are closed? That's some serious primal bonding going on there, and you know Jenelle loves it. "Jace loves his Nathan," she writes in the caption. Which means Jace trusts Nathan, too.
We got the sense that Nathan wasn't like the guys in Jenelle's life when she tweeted that he wanted to keep her sober. (Er, well in his own way.) This snapshot makes us like Nathan even more and makes us think this really could be the real deal for them.
What do you think of this photo of Nate and Jace?
