Following her appearance on "16 and Pregnant," Jenelle continued her journey on "Teen Mom," which started in 2011. The show documented her challenges as a teenage mother.

Jenelle found it difficult to raise her child at that point, and she made the decision to sign over custody of her son, Jace Vahn, to her mother, Barbara Evans.

Jenelle's journey on "Teen Mom" showcased her efforts to balance her educational, personal and professional goals while also navigating her responsibilities as a young mother.

Over the years, Jenelle had two more children, Kaiser Orion and Ensley Jolie, through various relationships.

In her later years on the show, Jenelle found a stable relationship with David Eason, which brought some stability to her life.

In 2019, Jenelle faced a setback when her husband David Eason's actions led to her dismissal from "Teen Mom."
