It’s only been two months since Jenelle Evans welcomed her third child, but the Teen Mom 2 star is already planning her next move on the family front.
Jenelle is engaged to David Eason these days, and she’s happily addressed questions about her upcoming nuptials and the unique joys and challenges of raising a blended family in a number of new interviews.
Asked about her wedding planning process by MTV, Jenelle revealed that there’s some disagreement as to exactly when she and David should tie the knot:
“We haven’t set a date, but we want to get married either this summer or next summer depending on how quickly we plan it,” Jenelle said last month.
“I’m saying next summer, but he’s saying this summer.”
As for the theme and decor, Evans had this to say:
“We know we want a rustic-themed wedding, nothing too fancy. Something simple, maybe backyard and outdoorsy.”
“We want just close friends and family, not anything crazy.”
Of course the really interesting questions surrounding Jenelle and David’s forthcoming marriage have nothing to do with mason jars and Edison light bulbs.
Jenelle has three kids by three different men, and David has two children from previous relationships.
On top of that, Jenelle’s mother has custody of her eldest son, Jace.
All of this means there will be a lot of external input from third (and fourth, and fifth …) parties on basically every family decision that David and Jenelle make.
So how does Jenelle picture the future for her blended family?
Well, despite the ongoing difficulty of custody issues, she says sees everyone living under one roof without any issue.
“Jace recently asked me: ‘When can I live with you again?'” Jenelle tells People magazine.
“I said: ‘Well, hopefully by the summer you’ll be living here.’ But that’s all I told him – I don’t want him to know too much right now ’cause it’s really detrimental.”
Asked by a fan on Twitter if Eason’s daughter will ever live with her full-time, Jenelle replied, “She already does.”
She added, however, that for legal reasons, she’s not allowed to discuss custody of Eason’s son, Kaden.
But far from seeing her and her fiance’s many baby mamas and daddies as a challenge, Jenelle says Eason’s relationship with his kids is one of the things that attracted her to him:
“I want to marry David because he’s a great father, he’s a great best friend, he’s faithful, he’s loyal to me,” she recently told MTV, adding:
“It’s the best relationship I’ve ever had.”
