Jenelle Evans Says Son Jace, 13, 'Should Be Living with Me' Instead of Her Mother: 'It's Just Sad' "She's like, 'I'm ready to have my freedom. I'm ready to go on a cruise.' And her and her friend have a cruise already planned." Jenelle then faces the camera, with tears streaming from her face as she shows the official paperwork. "It's done. It's done," she says through tears. The former reality star is also mom to daughter Ensley, 6, with husband David Eason, as well as son Kaiser, 8, with ex Nathan Griffith. She is also stepmom to Eason's daughter, Maryssa, 15. Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2 in 2019 after her husband shot and killed their family dog for biting their daughter in the face. MTV had already fired Eason in 2018 after allegedly posting homophobic tweets. She temporarily lost custody of her children amid the scandal and subsequently split from Eason, though the two later reconciled.
