Jenelle evans reveals her hopes for sons jace and kaiser

Jenelle Evans has always been open about the choices she has made since becoming “16 and Pregnant” — but what path would the young mother like for her boys Jace and Kaiser to take as they grow older? “I just really hope that my boys tend to focus more on school than relationships,” the “Teen Mom 2” cast member — who will return to MTV along with Leah Calvert, Chelsea Houska and Kailyn Lowry on July 9 — dishes to MTV News in the video below. “School is the most important thing, and relationships should fall later on.”

While the 23-year-old is making her hopes for her sons known, J can’t help but reflect on her own past with her education and former boyfriend struggles. “From my personal experience, I’ve always had a hard time focusing on school because I would always be concerned…what is he doing? Where is he at?” the Myrtle Beach resident explains. “Or I’d be in the middle of an argument, so then I’d be like, ’I can’t focus on school, I’m focusing on my relationship.” Even though Jenelle’s firstborn is a recent kindergarten grad (way to go, Jace!), what does the little guy want to do professionally down the line? (A hint: His mama’s current studies has served as inspiration).
