Jenelle Evans no doubt has her hands full these days, what with taking care of her newborn baby Kaiser, hitting up the beach, going back to school ... plus taking care of her haters on social media as per usual. But unlike that time she was on MTV's 16 and Pregnant, she now has a 100 percent supportive baby daddy on her side.
This Teen Mom 2 star has former MMA fighter Nathan Griffith in her corner, and this guy has some big plans for their future. Not only are they planning on tying the knot soon, but Nate wants to make some big changes to their family -- namely adopting Jenelle's son Jace!
Only one caveat to that plan ... Jenelle doesn't even have custody of Jace. Let's just say that Jenelle didn't always have it as together as she seems to these days (i.e., she was basically one of the worst moms ever), and she signed over custody to her mom Barbara Evans when Jace was an infant.
Kaiser's big bro is 4 now and spends weekends with his mom, but Nathan wants more. He recently told OK! Magazine, "I want custody of Jace ... he listens to me and I’m a good role model for him. [Barbara] just yells at him."
In all fairness, Barbara just yells at everyone. It's sort of her way.
Nathan and Barbara have gone at it before (remember that time he accused her of letting Jenelle get hooked on heroin?), but we'd thought they'd worked it all out and were on friendlier territory. Maybe not.
"I look at him as one of my kids so I want him in a more structured and understanding home," Nathan said about Jace. "When he’s with Barbara it gives me an unsettling feeling in my stomach."
He continued, "I love her and I respect her, but she hasn't grown up yet -- and I don’t like that."
Babs hasn't grown up yet? We're glad to see Nathan and Jenelle keeping their crap together over the last year, but they're ones to talk about growing up.
Regardless of how the custody situation turns out, it's obvious that Jace has a lot of people who love him in his life, and no matter where he lives, that's the best place a kid can be.
Do you think it's a good idea for Nathan Griffith to adopt Jenelle's son Jace?
