'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Shares Baby's Name & Gender -- At 6 Weeks?

by Jeanne Sager on January 18, 2013 at 11:01 AM

Jenelle EvansReady for some more Jenelle Evans pregnancy news? The Teen Mom already has a baby name picked out. Yup, just one name. She's only just started her pregnancy, but Jenelle Evans says she already knows what she's having!

But wait a second; husband Courtland Rogers only just shared her six-week sonogram. How could she already know the gender of her baby? Believe it or not, I'm buying what Jenelle and her hubs are selling here.

Courtland told Radar magazine:

Jenelle says she feels really different this time being pregnant so she thinks she’s having a girl ... Jenelle has morning sickness, back pain and muscle pain all the time.

So Jenelle just feels that she's having a girl? Yes, it's way too early to tell, and there's no way she should pin her hopes and dreams on something so unscientific, but even the Jenelle haters need to quiet down on this one.

She might be right.

The Teen Mom 2 star is right there with hundreds of thousands of moms who will say they just "felt" that the baby in their belly was one gender or the other.  Sometimes it's based on how they're carrying, sometimes it's the baby's heartbeat, and sometimes it's just something in your guts that you can't shake. My daughter crossed her legs during our sonogram, denying us a look-see at her girly parts, but still, I spent my pregnancy sure that I would be having a girl.

Unlike Jenelle, I didn't voice it (I thought people would think I was nuts), and we chose a boy name just in case.

She and Courtland, on the other hand, are thinking about naming their would-be daughter Audriana. Hopefully they have a boy name in there too, but then again, they might not need it.

What do you think? Is Jenelle crazy for already talking about having a girl when she's just over 6 weeks pregnant?

    I think she is nuts for having another one because her mom is raising her son and she nevers seems to put her son first.

    Really a lot of women feel that they know what their having but I'd be willing to wager the reason they are right has more to do with the 50/50 odds than any special intuition

    Alot of women trust their instincts and are correct on guessing baby's gender before they officialy find out from the doc. I felt i was having a boy before the doc even told me and i was right. Hope this baby will put her in her place and get her butt in gear to get her life together and her son back. You don't get second chances with kids.

    My second pregnancy was by far completely different from my first. I had a boy the first time with no morning sickness or anything, but with my second son I had the complete opposite. So just because the pregnancy is different doesn't mean it's a girl. I know from experience. But the myth of opposites attest, I actually Believe it because my son hated me while I was pregnant but my sisters were all up my butt. But my point is dont get your hopes up, there is a possibility that its a boy

    When I was pregnant with my daughter, i had a feeling she was a girl... it was different than when I was pregnant with my sons.
