Step aside, haters! Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle Evans took to Instagram on Friday, May 20, to hit back at body shamers who have criticized her recent weight gain.
“I love my body for the way it is,” the reality starlet, 24, captioned a bikini pic that showed off her fuller figure. She also took a moment to put pregnancy rumors to rest. “Once again, not pregnant… Lol yes I've gained weight, healthy weight,” she continued.
Evans believes that her romance with boyfriend David Eason is the catalyst for her newfound curves.
“This what happens when you are truly happy in life and in a healthy relationship,” the confident North Carolina resident added. “Getting back in my workout grind tho! 👸🏼👍🏼.”
Evans, who has been dating Eason since September 2015, has never been shy about flaunting her fit frame on social media. Back in August, the MTV personality showed off her toned abs in a set of sexy pics that were posted not long after she and her ex-fiancé, Nathan Griffith, called it quits on their tumultuous relationship.
“Oh u know.. Just chillin,” she wrote at the time, alongside a revealing snapshot that put her revenge body on display. Subsequently, she shared three pictures from the gym, mid-workout, writing, “Gotta keep those knees high.”
During that phase in her life, the mom of Jace, 6, and Kaiser, 22 months, enthusiastically shared a big milestone, writing, “Wow, down to a size 2. For the first time in my life. Can I be conceited for a minute? Lol sorry.”
Teen Mom 2 airs on MTV Mondays at 10 p.m. ET.
