Jenelle Evans, Barbara Evans


Teen Mom fans know Jenelle Evans doesn't always see eye to eye with her mom, Barbara Evans.

In fact, cameras often catch the mother-daughter duo's shouting matches and brutal arguments.

But during a recent Twitter Q&A with MTV and her fans, Evans couldn't help but gush over her one and only mother. When a follower asked who her biggest inspiration, mentor or supporter was in her life, Jenelle chose Barbara.

"This def is my mom!" she said on Twitter. "She has been there for [me] through the ROUGHEST parts in my life and still loved me for me."

Pretty nice, right?

Jenelle has been through much more than your average teenager. The mother of two has already experienced divorce, a scary surgery to remove an appendix and has also spent time behind bars.

But the Teen Mom 2 star says her life is headed in the right direction.

"[I] just try to keep myself on the right path and stay out of trouble and sober!" she told a Twitter follower.  

She also remains focused on raising her two babies. "Jace started Kindergarten the other day and Kai turned 1 month old!" she Tweeted. "[I love] seeing how much my sons accomplish each day."  

Watch the progress Jenelle has made when Teen Mom 2 airs Wednesdays on MTV.
