In 2009 Jenelle Evans was supposed to enter her senior year of high school. Instead, her life was turned upside down when she became one of MTV’s most famous Teen Moms. After a troubled history of domestic abuse claims, drug related charges and some questionable relationships people wondered if Janelle would ever be able to get back to a more normal life.
However, today the 23-year old was happy to share the news that she became a college graduate.
“Sexy and successful,” she captioned a photo on her Instagram where she poses in her bright blue cap and gown.
The Teen Mom 2 star, and mom to sons Jace,5, and Kaiser,1, is currently engaged to fiancé Nathan Grifith. However, despite plans to marry sometime in the future the pair have had a rocky relationship in recent times.
Their public spats have caused Janelle’s mom, who has custody of her son Jace, to restrict the amount of time he spends with Janelle. In a recent Facebook Q&A the reality TV star explained:
“She's concerned about Nathan and I… Our relationship will never be perfect but we do love each other and take things day by day.”
She also admitted she doesn’t think her mom, Barbara, will ever fully accept her relationship with Nathan, telling her fans, “I honestly don't think she would ever agree,” when asked about Barbara’s opinion on their impending marriage.
Today though, Janelle seemed more focused on her recent achievements and her future career. She also acknowledged how much her mom has helped her get through in the last number of years and the pair were all smiles for Janelle's big day.
She told her followers: “If i have been through all I did today and still can go back to school and graduate… SO CAN U! I did it !!!!!”
