There are two sides to every story, and Andrew Lewis – Jenelle Evans’ baby daddy – is about to tell his…
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle has struggled with the responsibilities of motherhood since day one. She’s been so confused about her role as a teen mom that she gave custody of her son, Jace, to her mother, Barbara.
Why Barbara and not Andrew? Because, according to Jenelle’s MTV bio, Jace’s father “is completely out of the picture.” Now, at long last, we learn why.
Andrew is listed on the birth certificate as Jace’s father, but Jenelle, now 20, has admitted that – thanks to past indiscretions with other men – she was never really sure if Andrew was the one.
Andrew recently underwent a paternity test and the results prove that he is, in fact, Jace’s biological father, reports the Daily Mail. A source close to Andrew says the young father is not at all surprised.
“Andrew always knew deep down he was Jace’s father,” the insider reports, “but it’s a huge relief to actually prove it to Jenelle and finally have the rights to get Jace back in his life.”
Jenelle, reportedly “devastated” by the results of the DNA test, is not eager to let Andrew into Jace’s life, but “finally let him see Jace via Skype for the first time in almost two years,” says the source.
Andrew hasn’t been able to see much of his son, except on TV. “Jenelle said the only way [Andrew] can have a relationship with Jace is if he films for Teen Mom” added the source. “So he signed a contract with MTV and has already filmed for next season.”
Jenelle and Barbara have reportedly offered to “send pictures and postcards and let Andrew fly to North Carolina to see Jace,” all of his calls to them have thus far gone unanswered.
Who should have custody of Jace: Jenelle, Barbara or Andrew?
