Jenelle Evans is a college graduate!

The Teen Mom 2 star shared the happy news with her Twitter followers after graduating from Miller-Motte Technical College on Friday.

Evans kicked things off by calling herself "sexy and successful."

"If I have been through all I did today and can still go back to school...and graduate...SO CAN U! I did it!!!!" she added.


She also shared a photo of herself with fiance Nathan Griffith, their son Kaiser, 13 months, and Evans' son Jace, 5, from a previous relationship, praising the trio for being her "biggest support system."

Evans even thanked her mother Barbara - a big deal because, asΒ Teen Mom 2 fans know, the two rarely see eye-to-eye. Barbara currently has custody of Jace, but Evans is in the process of trying to regain custody of him.Β 

The reality star, who first appeared in MTV's 16 & Pregnant in 2010, has been known over the years for her often illegal wild child antics. Evans has racked up arrests, including a few bizarre brushes with the law. Her most recent arrest, documented on Teen Mom 2, was in late May for domestic violence charges following an argument with Griffith. The two were temporarily broken up at the time but have since reconciled.
