Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans took to Twitter this morning to show off her newest accessory: an engagement ring from her boyfriend, Gary Head.
The couple have been dating since early this year. It seemed as though they were done for good after a bitter fight in April split them up. But Jenelle and Gary reconciled a couple of weeks ago, even going on a romantic getaway to Myrtle Beach last weekend.
And though the two have played pranks on Twitter before – staging a mock breakup to throw their fans a curveball – this appears to be the real deal.
For one thing, she tweeted not only this portrait, but also a close-up of the diamond solitaire with the caption “engagement ring ;)” and a shot of the jeweler’s bag to prove that this is no gumball-machine find.
And when a follower asked, “Are you and @gary_head engaged?” Jenelle answered simply, “yes.” She accepted congratulations from another fan and said that her mother – the notoriously critical Barbara – “adores” her new fiance.
Since things change so quickly in the TMiverse, there’s no guaranteeing that the rock on her finger will lead to a trip down the aisle. All we can say is that we hope everything works out for the best for everyone involved…
…especially Jenelle’s son, Jace. That little guy deserves the best of everything – including a stable home environment and a mom and stepdad who love him beyond words.
Take a look at Jenelle’s newest twitpics and tell us – is this the real thing?
