Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, 26, tied the knot to her newest baby daddy David Eason back in September, so if you haven’t gotten to know Jenelle’s new man already, now’s the time! Luckily, we did the digging for you. Read on for some fun facts about three-year-old Kaiser and eight-year-old Jace’s new step dad.
He has a questionable past.
David has had some trouble with the law. As recently as just two weeks before his wedding, Jenelle’s fiancé narrowly avoided jail time for violating a restraining order by hugging his son from a previous relationship. Luckily, he got off with just one year of probation, rather than the 60 days of prison that he was originally facing. He has actually done time before for larceny, breaking and entering, injury to property, and drug paraphernalia possession, during which he was cellmates with Jenelle’s ex-husband Courtland Rogers.
He has three kids of his own.
Judging by the tons of Instagram pics David posts with Jenelle’s kids, you’d think he’s the most hands-on stepdad ever. However, he’s had a little practice. David actually has custody of his nine-year-old daughter Maryssa from his first marriage, as well as his son Kaden. Along with his one-year-old daughter with Jenelle and her two other boys, the couple admitted to UPI that life can get a little “hectic.”
He has Vitiligo.
Jenelle is super sensitive to trolls mocking her hubby’s rare skin condition. When a fan took aim at the discoloration of David’s hands in the comments of a sweet Instagram photo by saying it looked like he has AIDS, Jenelle immediately clapped back. “It’s called vitiligo you f–king idiot,” she raged. “It’s a loss of pigment in your skin. People are models these days for it. You need to research STDs if you don’t know wtf AIDS does to you…. and def don’t do that s–t to your skin like that. Maybe you’re the one with AIDS and don’t even know cuz your [sic] as dumb as a box of rocks my friend.” Way to defend your man, sister!
He’s head-over-heels for Jenelle.
David can’t seem to contain his excitement about his lovely bride. He often posts pics of her on Instagram with absolutely precious captions like “You take my breath away babe,” “You are so beautiful my babe,” and “I am one lucky man.” Aww!
He’s already involved with Jenelle’s drama.
Jenelle may love David, but her ex Nathan Griffith HATES him! He even went so far as to accuse David of being on drugs during a wild Twitter rant following TM2 on July 24! “Unless you’re trying to hide something, I didn’t know you had to protect your eyes from the UV rays inside… ?” he said, questioning why David wore sunnies in the courtroom. “I think I would recognize if my boyfriend had an alcohol problem,” snapped Jenelle. She’s also admitted that David has problems with her mom. In a now-deleted tweet storm, she said her mom “can’t seem to get over” the fact that David “is the best thing that ever happened to her,” so for that she was “trying to ruin his reputation.”
He was fired from Teen Mom.
Jenelle’s husband crossed the line when he made some gross homophobic and transphobic comments on Feb. 19, so MTV decided to cut ties with the reality star. “David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV,” the network tweeted on Feb. 20. “With six weeks left of production on Teen Mom 2, effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him.”
