Jenelle Evans has confirmed that she is pregnant.

And confirmed the gender of her impending baby. And confirmed its due date. And even confirmed the future bundle of joy’s name.

Such openness is a stark contrast to the Teen Mom 2 star’s reaction when rumors of Jenelle’s third pregnancy first spread across the Internet.

Evans was involved in a car accident in mid-July.

As part of the police report, officers wrote that Evans told them she was complaining of abdominal pains … which may have been related to the fact that she was 10 weeks along with her third child.

Because the Internet reacted to this speculation with shock and horror, Evans did not go online to verify the pregnancy.

Instead, she lashed out at the haters, slamming them for being obsessed with her personal life, yet seemingly not caring one bit about her well-being.

“Why not be concerned about my health?!” Evans wrote.

“I want privacy. All of you disgust me."

"It’s all about gossip these days… Funny someone else comes out with news they are pregnant and the world is overjoyed.”

Well, yeah. 

Most of those other people have not been filmed exhibiting some rather horrible parenting traits, while also getting into epic screaming matches with their mother and taking a lot of drugs.

We really don’t wish to judge parents… or anyone.

But this will be Jenelle’s third child by her third man – David Eason – and she hasn’t shown many signs that she even wants to be a mom.

But anyway. That was then.

And this is now:

Evans took to Instagram on Wednesday night and captioned a photo of her and boyfriend David with the aforementioned confirmation(s).

"Time to introduce the world to our baby girl soon, Ensley Jolie Eason," she wrote. "She will be arriving Jan. 28th. We couldn’t be any happier!"

So there we have it.

Eason, who has a daughter from a previous relationship, added himself on Instagram:

"I’m so happy im bout ta cry!!. I love you so much @j_evans1219 and I can’t wait to meet our baby girl Ensley Jolie Eason!!"

He wrote this as a caption to the above picture, which depicts Eason kissing Evans and also touching her baby bump.

It is a very sweet image, we’ll give him that much.

As those who watch Teen Mom 2 online know all too well, this will be Jenelle’s third child with her third baby daddy.

She is already mom to six-year-old Jace (with ex Andrew Lewis) and also to two-year-old Kaiser (with ex-fiance Nathan Griffith).

There have been plenty of blow-ups with her centered around these kids, their fathers and also Jenelle’s own parent.

Evans’ mother, Barbara, continues to have custody of Jace, as she an Jenelle have long been battling over custody of the little boy, a struggle documented on their hit MTV series.

Questions about Jenelle as a parent continue to circulate online and from anyone who has seen her in action on Teen Mom 2.

(One of many cases in point above.)

But, hey, maybe this will be a new beginning.

Maybe it will be the fresh start she needs.

It can’t hurt to have some hope, can it?

(Please don’t make us regret this, Jenelle.)

Unlike losers such as Griffith, perhaps Eason will be a steady, loving, positive influence in her life and in the life of her daughter.

“He’s financially stable and emotionally stable,” she told Us Weekly of her boyfriend in December, despite what you might think from TV.

“And he’s a great support system for me, and I need that in my life.”

See. There’s a fresh perspective right there. There’s an example of self-awareness, delusional as some might say she is.

This pregnancy is happening. This child is entering the world. We might as well wish Evans and Eason the very best of luck with her.
