Troubled Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is reportedly “devastated” after learning the truth regarding the paternity of her 2-year-old son Jace
Although Andrew Lewis is listed on the birth certificate as Jace’s father, the 20-year-old single mom has admitted that she was actually unsure if Andrew was the father on account of her past indiscretions with other men.
According the the Daily Mail, Andrew underwent a paternity test and the results prove that he is, in fact, Jace’s father, something that a close friend claims the young man didn’t need a test to figure out.
“Andrew always knew deep down he was Jace’s father, but it’s a huge relief to actually prove it to Jenelle and finally have rights to get Jace back in his life,” the insider reports.
“Andrew broke down in tears when he found out the news and he cried when Jenelle finally let him see Jace via Skype for the first time in almost two years,” the source adds.
The Daily Mail also reports that when Andrew and Jenelle were skyping on Christmas Eve of last year, Jace asked his mother who was on the screen. When Jenelle replied, “Nobody important,” the young father was crushed.
“Andrew just lost it and broke down into tears,” a friends reveals. “It was affirmation just how horrible of a mom Jenelle is.”
“It breaks Andrew’s heart having to watch his son grow up on TV, ” the source continues. “But Jenelle said the only way he can have a relationship with Jace is if he films for Teen Mom so he signed a contract with MTV and has already filmed for next season.”
Andrew is also allegedly making every effort to keep in contact with his son, who is currently in the custody of Jenelle’s mother Barbara due to her daughter’s questionable lifestyle, including multiple run-ins with the law and a stint in rehab.
“After confirming and documenting the DNA test Jenelle and her mom Barbara promised to send pictures, post cards and let Andrew fly to North Carolina to see Jace, but all of his calls have gone unanswered so far, ” the source reports.
“He’s trying to have a relationship with Jace so he can someday regain custody from Barbara, but Jenelle and her mom are making every effort to continue to shut Andrew out.”
