Who needs a beau when you’ve got a beauty on your arm? Especially if it’s your adorable mother.

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans proved to us that not only is she getting over ex-fiance Nathan Griffith, but her mom can totally hang. The 23-year-old celebrity mother of two brought her own mom Barbara Evans, a TM2 favorite, to the MTV VMA’s Sunday night in LA. Because honestly, who else would you want sitting next to you while you watch Bieber cry, Miley show off her boobs, and Nicki Minaj throw down some fiery social media beef?

The gorgeous Evans girls showed up on the red carpet ready to impress, and Jenelle did a great job of  featuring everything Nathan is missing out on in a gorgeous black and silver beaded knee-length dress. Of course Barbara nailed her look too, wearing a form-fitting black and blue dress topped with a cute shrug — and that fiery red hair! J’dore Babs!

The duo rubbed shoulders with an array of celebs, including Jayden Smith, Blac Chyna, Amber Rose, and Grammy-winning singer Miguel, posting shots of their epic mother/daughter night on the town all the while.

I had the honor to sit next to these two beautiful ladies. @blacchyna @amberrose ????

We’re glad to see that Jenelle is looking and feeling great after her recently publicized Aug. 20th arrest after a spat with her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith’s girlfriend. Clearly she’s already moved on to bigger and better things and knows that if there’s anyone that will always be standing next to her with support — red carpet or not — it’s her mother. Cheers to moms everywhere!
