Jenelle Evans feels like her family is complete.
Less than two weeks after regaining custody of her 13-year-old son Jace, who she shares with ex Andrew Lewis, the former Teen Mom 2 star is sharing a glimpse into the changing dynamics within her family.
“My relationship with Jace is closer than ever and doing much better,” Jenelle exclusively told E! News in a statement. “I feel like being with his family makes him much happier. Our family wasn’t complete without him.”
According to Jenelle—who also shares Kaiser, 8, with ex Nathan Griffith and Ensley, 6, with husband David Eason—her bond with mom Barbara Evans has also taken steps forward.
“My relationship with my mother has got a little better, but truthfully she is still a little controlling,” she said. “I think it’s going to take time for her to get use to this change.”
For more than a decade, Barbara was in charge of Jace’s care. But for the last two years, Jenelle took steps to regain custody of her eldest child. Ultimately, the pair reached an agreement outside of court.
