Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans are more than just fellow MTV reality stars. They’re also friends. Abraham opened up at an event in New York City this weekend about how she’s proud of Evans, who is currently pregnant, for trying to turn her life around.

“I’m actually really proud of her that she stopped doing drugs,” Abraham told Us Weekly. “She definitely wants to try to find a better man to hopefully marry and have a bigger family with, if she wants to… I see her taking the initiative to totally change up things to be more welcoming to her mom. That’s a hard thing, thinking back to their past of her mom trying to take her child away.”
Teen Mom 2 star Evans, 24, already has two children: Jace, 7, with ex-boyfriend Andrew Lewis, and Kaiser, 2, with ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith. She is currently in a custody battle over Jace with her mom, Barbara Evans, and expecting her third child with current boyfriend David Eason.
Evans confirmed last week that she’s pregnant with her third child. Unfortunately, it was first revealed that Evans was pregnant when she was in a car accident back in July and a police report was filed.
“The passenger in vehicle No. 1 stated that she is at least 10 weeks pregnant and complained of abdominal pain,” the police report stated. “She was transported to [a local hospital].”
Abraham revealed that she suspected Evans was pregnant before it was announced publicly. She told Us Weekly, “I actually think she knew [she was pregnant before Abraham’s birthday party in May] because she wasn’t drinking then and they left early. I think everyone, including myself, was like, ‘Are you pregnant?’ Everyone there!”
We’re glad to hear Evans is trying to change her life for the better. According to her Instagram announcement, she’s expecting her third child in late January 2017.
