What a saint! Jenelle Evans‘ mom Barbara Evans has been taking care of the former Teen Mom 2 star’s kids amid her custody drama, and the 66-year-old is doing everything in her power to keep Ensley and Jace occupied, happy and healthy while their mom sorts everything out. On June 1, that included a trip to the beach for “Coast Guard Day.” Get all of the details on the fun family outing and more in the gallery below.
On June 1, she took them for a fun day at the beach with an educational twist. “Having fun at Coast Guard Day, eating hot dogs, frozen ice, and learning about rescue equipment,” she wrote beside a photo of Jace and Ensley climbing on a boat.
Fans were thrilled to see them out of the house and having a nice time. One wrote, “They look so healthy and happy!! Thank you for stepping up and saving them!!” Another agreed, saying, “You are doing an awesome job with your Grandchildren. These days will be great memories for them.”
Others hoped to see Babs back on Teen Mom 2, even though MTV announced they had no more plans to film with Jenelle. “Just because Jenelle is gone Barb should not be punished. Step up #mtv,” said a follower in the comments.
Babs has been working overtime to make sure the kids have a fun summer regardless. One week earlier, she shared this photo of Ensley with Jenelle’s brother, writing, “Oak Island, NC with Jace, Ensley and my son Colin. Having fun🤩”
Meanwhile, Jenelle seems to be occupying herself with her gardening after Ensley, Kaiser, and stepdaughter Maryssa were taken out of the home by CPS. “#Homestead living 👩🏻🌾💓” she captioned this photo on June 1. The post also seemed like a show of support for her husband, as she’s clearly sporting her wedding rings.
Babs has had custody of Jace for years now, but it must be more painful to take charge of Ensley too, especially since she just recently reconnected with Jenelle. They posted this photo in January, and things seemed better than ever between them.
While she’s kept mostly quiet about her thoughts on Jenelle’s current situation, she has been vocal about her appreciation for fans’ unwavering support. “Thank you for all your love and support, it means so much to me ❤️,” she commented in early May.
On May 13, Jenelle confirmed that her son Kaiser has been taken by CPS. She told Us Weekly at the time that she was “fighting” to get Kaiser back, and that her mom had been keeping Jace away from her, even on Mother’s Day.
