“It’s been very great because it’s really keeping us humble,” the Teen Mom 2 alum, 27, told Us Weekly exclusively on Monday, September 9, at her Jenelle Evans JE Cosmetics Launch. “[It’s] been having us focus on just staying at home, focusing on making them happy, making sure that’s a No. 1 priority.”

The former reality star added, “We want to make them happy. In the background, I have a big support team that’s out here working for me behind the scenes, and a lot of people don’t see that. I have to be a mom and live in North Carolina, but behind the scenes I am doing a lot.”

News broke in May that the couple had lost custody of their kids, but the little ones returned to their home in July. Evans told Us exclusively at the time: “I am ecstatic to regain custody of my kids. Throughout this long process and final decision, I am excited to be moving forward and continuing to show America I’m a good parent.”

The North Carolina native went on to say that she wants to build a stronger relationship with him and get full custody.
