Jenelle Evans: Not Ready to Be a Teen Mom

by at . Comments

After a bitter custody war with her own mom, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans decided to capitulate. For the sake of her 19-month-old son if nothing else.

"When he is older, I'll tell him I was really young and I couldn't put a roof over my own head, let alone his," says Jenelle of relinquishing custody of Jace.

The oft-at-odds mom and daughter tandem is working together to raise Jace, with Barbara Evans calling the shots, since Jenelle blows at parenting.

While Jenelle takes few film-studies classes at a local community college, Barbara cares for the boy after working her full-time job at a department store.

As badly as Jenelle, 19, wants Jace back from her relentlessly critical mom, she realizes she's just not there yet. Dumping Kieffer Delp was a good start.

"Once I get a job, save money and have my own place for three months, I'll bring my mom to court," Jenelle says of her confrontational plan of attack.

At least they're getting along well enough to pose for Us Weekly.

"Jace wasn't asked to be born," Barbara says. "Somebody has to take care of him, and it's going to be me. I don't resent it. I love him to death."
