Ladies and gentlemen, Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith are officially on again. Jenelle was proudly rocking her engagement ring during the Teen Mom 2 press day which took place on June 25 in New York City. And since we were there and couldn't stare at that rock without asking the obvious question of when and how they rekindled, we did ask just that, and Jenelle was more than happy to open up about it.

"We're working things out currently," Jenelle told "We took a break for about four months. During those four months I just focused on myself, took care of Kaiser, spent time with Jace on the weekends. No matter how depressed I was, I didn't let our breakup effect my schooling. I usually would in the past. I'm proud that I was able to stick to it."

Jenelle hinted at the fact that it was mostly Nathan who wanted to try to make it work, saying "Nathan realized that I'm the most faithful girl he's been with and he just wants his family back."

As for getting married? Jenelle insists that they're taking things slow and are trying to improve their relationship before going full-force into wedding planning.

"We haven't discussed it," Jenelle said of the big day. "We're slowly going back into our relationship. We don't want to jump back into it. Nathan was like,  'Oh maybe we can start planning our wedding soon!' But I think after everything that happened, we need to take a steady pace."
