Jenelle had shared the original photo on Facebook in May 2014 with the caption: "Story of our lives… waiting on Nathan."

The MTV star was dating Nathan Griffith at the time, who is the father of her six-year-old son Kaiser.

She re-posted the snap seven years on, with the caption, "He's the best!" alongside a love heart emoji and 100 per cent emoji.

Jenelle's post with Jace comes amid her public war with mom Barbara over their parenting of the preteen.

The Teen Mom alum signed over custody of Jace to her mother shortly after his birth because of her legal issues.

It recently emerged Jenelle has custody of Jace – whose father is Andrew Lewis – because her mom can "no longer handle" his behavior.

The one-time reality star claimed Jace was back with her in a TikTok video.

She said: "I have custody of Jace, he lives with me now full time. My kids are happy, healthy, that's all that f***ing matters."

According to The Ashley, the mother and daughter have reached an agreement to let Jace live full-time with Jenelle and her husband David Eason.

A source told the blog: "This decision has way more to do with Jace than Jenelle. Barbara can’t handle Jace anymore.

"They had been getting into really bad fights and Barbara is just done with it. That’s why she agreed to allow Jace to live with Jenelle. Things had gotten so bad between Barbara and Jace."

The source claimed the pair was ready to sign off on legal papers.

But in a counter-statement, Barbara told TMZ that Jace was moving between both households because of the pandemic.

Barbara explained that Jace will go to Jenelle's home for three or four days a week, mainly to give him a change of scenery.

She said that after Jenelle had made the claims, the two spoke on the phone and when confronted, she told her she "misspoke" and recognized that her mom still had custody.

Last week, the TV star broke down in tears as she claimed Barbara doesn't respect her parenting skills.

"My mom she just like doesn't acknowledge anything I do as a parent," Jenelle said as she sobbed.

"And me and David were talking about it yesterday and she never wanted me to be a parent in the first place, honestly. It just sucks."

She also admitted her "feelings are hurt" after Barbara didn't respond to her Mother's Day text.

Jenelle told her fans on TikTok: "I just want to say Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there. Thank you for all of your Mother's Day wishes. I really appreciate it.

"I said, 'Happy Mother's Day' to you know who and I don't get a response back. I'm just trying to be nice. But yeah, my feelings are pretty hurt."

She added that her day wasn't all bad, noting: "I had a good day with the kids, so that's all that matters."
