Sometimes it feels like there are so many new relationships in the Teen Mom cast that it can be hard to keep up. From hookups to breakups to unexpected pregnancies, there’s a lot to stay familiar with… including the relationships that the girls’ baby daddies have.
Jenelle Evans and David Eason are set to tie the knot at the end of this week, but there’s a new engagement in the Teen Mom community that even Jenelle might not have expected! This new couple set to get hitched might stir up even more drama than Jenelle’s wedding, especially given the timing of their engagement.
Jenelle Evans and David Eason are set to make it official this Saturday, September 23rd, but just because they’re amping up for the big day doesn’t mean that everyone else in the Teen Mom cast is going to put their lives on hold. In fact, someone very close to Jenelle has just popped the big question, too.
Rumors began circulating that Jenelle’s ex, Nathan Griffith, was engaged to his girlfriend. Now it looks like the couple confirmed their newly engaged status with this Twitter picture of them together, along with emojis of an engagement ring and a kiss.
Nathan has been dating 29-year-old Ashley Lanhart for several months at least. Apparently, their relationship is stronger than ever since they decided to make it forever.
We don’t know much about Ashley, but she is a counselor at a substance abuse treatment center… which might be good, considering Nathan’s history with substance use.
Even though this is a special day for Nathan and Ashley, fans seemed to think that Nate might have had ulterior motives, and they opened up about it on Reddit.
User cheeseduck11 wrote, “I almost wish he had done it on her wedding day….” pointing out how close the engagement announcement was to Jenelle’s wedding on Saturday. User StasRutt agreed, “My dream: he reuses the ring from Jenelle.” User crazygirlsbelike, “I am fairly certain Jenelle is seething over this. Sis still has feelings for Nathan… you don’t just talk shit online about someone’s girl like that unless you feel some type of way.”
In general, fans didn’t seem to be too optimistic about the way this marriage would turn out. User madein_amerika wrote, “I’m sorry but marriage doesn’t mean shit to me in the TM world for the most part lo.” JenW37 agreed, “Me either lol. I didn’t even know Nathan had a serious new girlfriend since the one he strangled. They move way to fast for me in the TM Universe.”
We don’t know much about Ashley, but fans seemed concerned about her. User caretothemack wrote, “Anyone would be a step up from JE but this girl definitely seems way too good for Nathan. I don’t know much about Nathan (other than the fact he broke into someone’s house and choked them?) I want that story be false, because I really want to like Nathan. I want him to get custody of that poor baby kaiser and give him a better life.”
