A week after Teen Moom 2 star Jenelle Evans revealed she was back together with her estranged husband, David Eason paid tribute to his lady love on Instagram.
Sharing a photo of the reunited couple sitting on a windswept beach, the 31-year-old Eason declared: ‘You will always be the love of my life @j_evans1219.
‘I’m so happy that we have become so close and bonded recently,’ he added. ‘Here’s to a lifetime of our own kind of quarantine, boat rides, ATV trails, living off the land, etc. I don’t think we are going to have a hard time staying secluded lol we already have been for awhile.’
‘Love of my life’: David Eason shared a photo to Instagram Tuesday showing him with bikini clad Jenelle Evans a week after the Teen Mom 2 star confirmed the couple were back together
Jenelle, 28, is pictured wearing a tiny black bikini and sunglasses and perched on Eason’s lap as he sits on a large driftwood tree on the sand.
Eason is dressed in a blue sweatshirt and khaki shorts with a green bandana around his neck and reflective shades.
The Tuesday PDA pic confirms that the pair, who wed in 2017, the year they welcomed their daughter Ensley, are giving their troubled relationship another go.
The MTV reality star had filed for divorce last October after leaving North Carolina and moving to Tennessee.
In November, she accused her ex of physical and emotional abuse and sought a restraining order.
Reunited: Evans, 28, filed for divorce last October after leaving North Carolina and moving to Tennessee. On March 22, however, she told fans via YouTube she and Eason are together again
However, on March 22, during a Q&A session on her YouTube page , she told fans she and Eason were together again.
Jenelle, who also has two sons age 10 and five from previous relationships, told her fans she had moved back to North Caroline and that ‘Me and him are deciding to work things out right now and we’re taking it slowly.’
She added: ‘The reason why I came back to North Carolina is because I cannot afford rent and a mortgage; I have to choose one or the other,’ she said. ‘And I have a house here that I own. I don’t own the apartment in Tennessee, so I decided to move back.’
The MTV reality star shared this snap showing her with her two youngest kids hanging out at the pool – Ensley, three, whom she shares with Eason and Kaiser, five, from a previous romance
Evans is mother to to sons Jace, 10, with Andrew Lewis and Kaiser, five, with Nathan Griffith; and three-year-old daughter Ensley with Eason, who also has a daughter named Maryssa from a past relationship.
She said that the children ‘have their own space here’ over ’11 acres of land for them to play on.’
‘It’s very spacious,’ she said. ‘Kaiser and Ensley, they really miss the animals, they really miss the chickens, the goats, everything; so we decided to come back here, and things are going pretty smooth.’
Eason made headlines last April after he fatally shot the family’s French bulldog Nugget, claiming the canine had behaved aggressively toward Ensley.
Jenelle lost custody of her kids for two months in the wake of the violent incident, and was also terminated by MTV the month after.
She said that moving forward, she and Eason ‘have decided to just try to remain positive no matter what,’ defending his character as a father and husband.
‘I want to tell you guys that David has never abused the children, he’s never abused me,’ she said. ‘We’ve always had disagreements and those would turn into big arguments and this is the reason why I decided to go back home and work out my relationship, because ultimately it’s for my family.’
She said in their most recent reconciliation, she reached out to him and apologized for the swift nature of the split, and sought to set new terms in their relationship moving forward.
Evans added: ‘Before I moved back to North Carolina, I told him, I said, ‘Things have got to change. We cannot be so unhappy. We have to start communicating with each other about our problems and we have to sort it out and we can’t let the same thing keep happening or the same topic for an argument keep occurring.”
