Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans has a new man on her arm this season, and we're crazy/obsessed with his soul patch. This gal is currently dating 25-year-old underwear model/MMA fighter, Nathan Griffith. The pair live together in the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina and they're even expecting a baby!
We don't know too much about Nathan and his sexy self, but one thing's for sure: dude has beauty and brains! Not only did Nathan earn an Associates Degree in Science from Wake Tech Community College, he’s studying Civil Engineering and Psychology at Coastal Carolina University, according to his Facebook page. Oh, and much like Jenelle's ex-fiancé, Gary Head, Nathan has a military background. This hunk served in the Marines from 2006 to 2010.
When this Ohio native isn't voguing for the camera, he plays football, spends time with his daughter Emery, works as a Frontliner for Wyndham Hotel, and writes about his feelings and emotions. Our favorite musing from Nate?
"I forgave a forgot along time ago. But somewhere in my body somewhere deep down in my sub-conscious I still use my past as fuel."
Color us inspired.
Jenelle and Nathan met online in late April 2013 (shortly after Jenelle was arrested for felony heroin possession) when she found a picture of him posing with two adorable husky puppies. It wasn't long before she met his family, dropped the L-word, and got pregnant with his love spawn.
And the best part? Nathan helps keep Jenelle on the straight and narrow. Unlike most of her ex-boyfriends who have struggled with addiction (we're lookin' at you, Keeefah and Courty!), Nathan is living the sober life."Nathan doesn't do drugs, he doesn't smoke pot, he drinks occasionally but he's not an alcoholic," Jenelle told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively. "I've had problems with alcoholics before so I monitor his drinking and he monitors me. We work as a team."
As for that time Nathan got arrested for DUI? He admitted to making a "bad" and "immature" decision, so hopefully he learned his lesson and stays out of the clink for good.
Do you think Nathan and Jenelle's love will last? Hit the comments!
