#Entertainment #13yearold Teen Mom reality star Jenelle Evans receives full custody of her 13-year-old son Jace from his mother Barbara.

She wrote in the caption of a video of herself signing the documents and shedding tears of joy: “Words cannot describe how happy I truly am. Our family is complete now! Thanks Mom.’
The North Carolina native, who welcomed Jace, now 13, in 2009 with ex-boyfriend Andrew Lewis, had relinquished custody of her eldest son to Barbara shortly after he was born.
Custody Regained: Jenelle Evans, 31, has finally been granted full custody of her son Jace since relinquishing parental rights to her mother many years ago.
Tears of happiness: She wrote in the caption of a video of herself signing the documents and shedding tears of joy: ‘Words cannot describe how happy I truly am. Our family is complete now! Thanks Mom.’
Over the years, Jenelle continued a lengthy court battle with her mother over custody of her firstborn son, as she battled drug addiction and had been arrested multiple times in her pre-teen years.
