One of the most exciting times in any parent’s lives is finding out the gender of their child. Although many people (including the one and only Kailyn Lowry) choose not to know the gender until the child is born, many can’t wait to find out if they’ll be having a boy or a girl.
Recently, one of the Teen Mom cast members announced with great excitement that they were expecting another baby! It’s clear that they are totally thrilled to be welcoming this new addition into their family, and they were happy to share the news with fans on social media.
It’s always exciting when another Teen Mom cast member announces a pregnancy. Even though often times they’re unexpected, generally the stars are pretty excited to have another little bundle of joy. But this announcement may have flown under the radar. In fact, recent fans of the show might not even know who this happy father is!
Jenelle Evans is now happily married to David Eason. Even though their relationship has been picking up some serious controversy these past few weeks, they’ve just passed a month of being married. There have been numerous rumors that Jenelle herself is pregnant now, but we do know that someone else is expecting: her ex-husband, Courtland Rogers!
It’s a Boy!
Courtland Rogers and his girlfriend recently announced that they’ll be adding to their little family. He girlfriend posted this picture of them together, writing, “This summer me and my love.” Courtland commented, “I cannot wait for the 15th to get here so we can find out if it’s a boy or a girl… I’m so freaking excited.”
Well, that day is here! Courtland took to Twitter to share: “It’s a boy!!”
It looks like Courtland has come a long way since he was with Jenelle. Although he only appeared very briefly on Teen Mom 2, he and Jenelle were married for one long and tumultuous year.
History of Abuse
Jenelle opened up about it in her memoir, Read Between The Lines: Diary of a Teenage Mom.The star asked him to buy her weed to help with the withdrawal symptoms, but instead he came back with two bags of heroin.
“It was a hard relapse,” she wrote. “I took more than I did before. Courtland was not only taking heroin, he started dealing it.”
Jenelle became pregnant soon after they got married. She stopped using drugs because she was determined to “not poison” her child. However, Courtland continued to use.
“He also became very verbally abusive,” she wrote. “His favorite thing to do during arguments was tell me that our child wasn’t his because I was a whore.”
After he “punched [her] in the gut,” she had a friend call the police. “I packed a bag and went to spend the night with my mother,” she wrote. “I woke the next morning to a pool of blood between my legs. My mother rushed me to the emergency room, where they explained to me that I had suffered a miscarriage due to my recent altercation with Courtland.”
Although Courtland denied the truth of this incident, he was arrested for the offenses of assault on a female and battery of an unborn child.
