Ok, friends. Since the return of Teen Mom 2 is right around the corner, we’re going to post an update on some things that have been happening in their lives to keep you up to date before season 5b starts on July 16th.
So, when we left Jenelle last season, she had found out that she was pregnant with Nathan’s baby. She had told her mom and Jace, and things seemed to be going well, but we all know that Jenelle never really stays out of trouble for too long. Nathan was arrested for driving drunk, and this season we’ll be able to see how Jenelle fends for herself while he’s behind bars for about a month. We’ll also get to see the remainder of Jenelle’s pregnancy, the birth of her second son, and hopefully some footage of the first few weeks of her parenting.
Jenelle is set to deliver baby Kaiser any day now, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on how that whole situation goes. She also recently celebrated Jace’s preschool graduation, and it looks like Barbara and Nathan were there to help celebrate as well. Check out these adorable shots from his graduation ceremony.
When we left Kailyn, she had just delivered her second son, Lincoln. She and Javi were adjusting to parenting two children, and they were still working on co-parenting with Jo and his girlfriend Vee. Kailyn had some emotions that were all over the place after Lincoln was born, but seems to have recovered well. During this season of Teen Mom 2, we’ll get to see more recent footage of Kailyn. In an interview with WetPaint, she said that viewers will get to see her relationship with Javi and the progress that she’s made in the relationship she has with her mother. Viewers will also get to see a better look at her co-parenting with Jo and Vee. This is the first season that Kailyn has been filmed with both Jo and Vee, so that could be interesting to see.
Jo and Vee recently celebrated their three year anniversary, and things seem to be going well for the couple. Kailyn, Javi, and Lincoln took a trip to the Bahamas, and they’ve been traveling across the United States promoting Kailyn’s book, “Pride Over Pity” which is officially a New York Times best selling book. Check out this picture of Kail, Javi, and Lincoln on their vacation.
When we left Leah, she was having problems in her marriage and felt like Jeremy was choosing to be away from their family by taking jobs that were a long ways away from home. Leah was dealing with Ali’s muscular dystrophy, and struggling with emotions that went along with having a child with special needs. Since filming ended, things for Leah have seemed to remain stable, to say the least. Jeremy is working closer to home and spending more time with his family, and Leah is enrolled in cosmetology school and has started selling Mary Kay products.
Corey and Miranda have been pretty good at staying out of the spotlight as much as possible, and we saw in the Being Dad special that Miranda might not enjoy the cameras being around much, but she still seems to put a smile on and deal with it because it’s a part of her life. They recently celebrated their one year anniversary, and have been enjoying the summer by taking the girls swimming and fishing.
When we last saw Chelsea she was finishing up aesthetician school, getting a job, and dealing with Adam Lind almost killing two elderly people in a fiery car crash. Since filming has ended, Chelsea has continued working as an aesthetician and has purchased a home in South Dakota, which we will get to see on season 5b. Chelsea has been pretty quiet on social media, but updates on Aubree quite frequently. Aubree recently started playing t-ball, and Chelsea and her father have shared some great pictures of the games. MTV cameras were there to capture the event, so hopefully we get to see some little kid sports during this season!
Adam has broken up with his girlfriend, Taylor Halbur, who is also the mother of his second child. He is now dating a woman named Jessica, and after only a month of dating, they decided that they would move in together. Jessica is 33 years old, and has a teenage son of her own. Adam also recently went on a rant on Instagram about how Aubree has his last name. He posted pictures of his child support payments to prove it, and stated “More proof of how fake the show is…they suck in all u idiots who feed off drama to believe everything that’s on TV.” Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, Adam.
