Here is an update like I promised! We are heading to the hospital now..my contractions are about 4-5 mins apart. I feel fine until they hit, then I can’t really talk or move😅🙈My family just picked up Pearl (who doesn’t seem to be in the best mood ha). I’m so excited, nervous, and ready to meet her! Really hoping everything goes smoothly, and will let you know more when I can❤️
She has moved on from her BIP days
Jenna became engaged to Jordan Kimball on the Season 5 finale of Bachelor in Paradise. The two didn’t last long. It has been recently revealed that their relationship had been somewhat sabotaged. She was accused of cheating on Jordan, which she has always denied.
In April, Reality Steve cleared Jenna’s name. Together they worked to get the truth out about the rumors that ended Jenna and Jordan’s engagement. She even hired attorney’s and forensic investigators to find the truth.
Steve went so far as to say it was the “biggest misstep” of his career. Jenna thanked him for retracting his statement and making things right.
Jenna and Jordan have both moved on
While the cheating scandal was hard on Jenna and ended her relationship with Jordan, she doesn’t regret it. Jenna is happy now and feels her relationship with Karl is wonderful. Jordan has also moved on from the past. He is happy with his current girlfriend as well.
Now, life can only get better for Jenna. She has been excited to begin her journey as a mom and continue her life with Karl. For fans who enjoy following her on Instagram, she has also created an account for baby Presley. In addition to having a new daughter, she also has a pet pig, Pearl.
