    Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans is officially divorced.

    The reality star married Courtland Rogers back in December 2012 but has been separated from him since April 2013.

    Evans is currently expecting a child at the end of the month with her current beau, Nathan Griffith, and the two have already decided to name their son Kaiser.

    She took to Twitter to express her relief for the divorce being finalized just in time for the baby's arrival.

    "Thanks everyone for the positive vibes! I'm very happy and feel so free now! Lol," she wrote.

    Evans' legal name was also restored in today's court ruling.

    Dustin R.T. Sullivan, her attorney, tells E! News exclusively, "She was granted her divorce. Courtland failed to appear to contest it, so he waived all rights to spousal support or equitable distribution."

    He added, "Jenelle is now looking forward to the birth of her new baby."

    The now exes faced marital troubles soon after tying the knot, including some serious legal matters.

    Just one month after becoming husband and wife, Evans filed four counts of assault on a female and two counts of battery of unborn child against Rogers.

    Soon afterward, "Courtland Rogers pleaded guilty to one count of assault on a female and one count of battery on an unborn child and received 24 months' supervised probation," Sullivan told E! News at the time, adding that "Courtland was relieved to have it behind him."

    Evans also told us, "I really found the love of my life and that he's my best friend, and I'm just happy my mom is there to support me and my relationship, my pregnancy, everything."
