Jenelle Evans Refers to David as Her Kids' Dad & Fans Freak


The sky is blue, the grass is green, and Jenelle Evans is getting called out for her parenting decisions yet again. This time, fans are upset because they think Jenelle wants her kids to call David Eason "dad." But if you ask us? Her haters may be overreacting just a tad.

  • It all started with this seemingly innocent picture of Jace, Kaiser, and David's daughter Maryssa. Cute kids, cute fort, what's not to like?

    Jenelle's caption, apparently. She wrote, "They built a fort yesterday with the help of Capt. Dad," and oh boy did those torches and pitchforks come out.

  • Plenty of commenters were quick to point out the obvious, like this one:

    Well, duh. Jace's dad is Andrew Lewis, who hasn't been heard from in years (at least, as far as we know), and Kaiser's dad is Nathan Griffith. What's your point?

  • But here's the thing -- where did Jenelle EVER say these kids need to call him dad? It's just a caption, but people are freaking out.

    And to be completely fair, Maryssa is David's biological father ... and Jenelle's probably having all those warm and fuzzy family feelings now that she's a newlywed.

  • Stepdad or not, David does seem to be pretty good with them, so he gets props for that.

    But obvs, the boys should be the ones to decide what they want to call David, so we really hope Jenelle isn't pressuring them. Jace and Kaiser should do whatever they feel most comfortable with.

  • But we all know exactly how Nathan is going to react if Jenelle really does want Kaiser to call David "dad."
