“Teen Mom” alum Jenelle Evans recently reunited with her estranged mother, Barbara Evans, 68. According to The Sun, Jenelle shared a photo of Barbara enjoying a cup of coffee on her Instagram story in March 2022. In the photo, Barbara is wearing a patterned hoodie and holding a mug that reads “Main Character Energy.”

“Teen Mom” fans have watched Jenelle and Barbara struggle to maintain a healthy relationship. The two have been in a lengthy custody battle over Jenelle’s 12-year-old son, Jace, for years, The Sun reported.

Jenelle opened up about her relationship with Barbara in January 2021 YouTube video titled, “MY MOM BLOCKED ME.”

In the video, she talked about the ongoing custody battle over her son, stating, “Jace was staying at my house, everything was fine…[Barbara] agreed for him to live with me. Now, she’s trying to make me look like a dumb—. Now she’s taking it all back.”

The “Teen Mom” star went on to say her relationship with her mom was “ruined.” However, Jenelle’s recent Instagram post featuring Barbara may signal that the two are working through their issues.

Jenelle Shares Photo of Jace

In February 2022, Jenelle shared a photo of her and her eldest son, Jace, alongside the caption, “He’s almost taller than me 🥺💙 #GrowingUp #MotherAndSon.”

“Teen Mom” viewers took to the comment section of the post to share their thoughts on the photo. Fans couldn’t believe how much Jace had grown in recent years.

“I remember when he was just a baby on the show. You both have made leaps and bounds since then! Such a cute family. Blessings to you ❤️🙌,” one fan wrote.

“Awww. So grown up! He’s so handsome! ❤️,” another fan chimed in.

Some fans commented on the post to inquire if Jenelle had full custody of Jace.

“Just wondering, does she now have full custody of him? Love you both💕,” one Instagram user wrote.

“Wow he’s all grown up does he live at home with you?” another user wrote.

According to The Sun, Barbara currently has primary custody of Jace.

Jenelle Reveals Diagnosis

Jenelle told E! News exclusively that she was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

The “16 and Pregnant” alum has struggled with mysterious health issues since 2018. She has documented her health journey on social media. In March 2021, she uploaded a YouTube video telling fans she suspected she had a condition called chiari malformation. According to Mayo Clinic, chiari malformation is a “condition in which brain tissue extends into the spinal canal.” 

More recently, she revealed in a TikTok that she was going to be tested for ALS. 

Jenelle finally received an official diagnosis in 2022, after years of struggling.  

The “Teen Mom” star spoke to E! News exclusively about her condition in a March 2022 interview. 

“Living life every day is challenging,” she said. “Because of having only a little bit of energy to be able to get my work done, then [having] to go to bed early due to headaches or body aches.”

She went on to say that she is currently working on managing her condition, mainly by making changes to her diet.

“Teen Mom 2” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on MTV.
