‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Evans celebrated the end of her custody battle over her son Jace by taking him for a fun horse ride on the beach.
Evans, 25, shared the happy pic with her 2.6 million Instagram followers on Friday, June 9, with the message: “Blessed this day finally got to happen. Brought Jace to the place I’ve been wanting to for years. I’m so grateful and blessed my son can travel and share the same experiences … starting now.”

News that she will now have Jace on weekends, holidays and during the summer. “I’m not restricted to when my mom says I can have my son and at the moment that’s all I care about,” she said. “I just want to spend time with my son. He will be home one day, but today wasn’t the day, sadly.”
While that dispute has ended, the North Carolina native is still locked in an ongoing battle with former fiancé Nathan Griffith over their 2-year-old son, Kaiser. According to RadarOnline.com she has Kaiser most of the time with Griffith allowed supervised visits.
