TEEN Mom star Nikkole Paulun revealed she’s been “praying for protection” for when her baby daddy Josh Drummonds gets released from prison.
Josh, with whom she shares son Lyle, is currently serving time for his meth and armed robbery charges.
On Sunday, Nikkole shared a video response to a big question she had been getting from her followers: “Are you going to be okay when your ex gets out of prison?"
Staying warm inside the house in a mustard yellow sweater, she stared directly into the camera, with the question placed as a floating caption in the video.
The clip then switched to her with her eyes closed, looking worried and sad, as she answered with “No” written out a bunch of times, floating all around her head.
Expanding upon the Instagram video, Nikkole opened up a bit more about the thought of her ex Josh getting released from jail in the future.
She admitted: “I try to not think about it but I know it’s going to happen.
“It’s hard for people to understand how hard it is to live a normal life when someone like that isn’t locked away where they can’t get to you.

The Teen Mom continued: “I’m going to take all the steps possible to protect all of us but it’s the small moments that worry me.
“Of course at home we’ll have a security system, protection, and all of that, but what about when I’m loading my groceries at the grocery store?
“These are the moments that scare me most. It creates a worry that makes you not want to leave the house.”
She said she’s going to “just pray for protection over myself and my family” whenever the time of his prison release comes.
In September, Nikkole slammed her jailed baby daddy, admitting that she "hates him so much."
The revelation came in a TikTok video she posted online showing throwback clips of her mother Rikki on 16 & Pregnant.
Nikkole captioned it: "Do you remember my episode? lord I should’ve listened to my mama #16andpregnant #teenmom #babydaddy."
The short video showed her looking around as the question, "why do you hate your baby daddy so much?" was asked.
As Lukas Graham's track Mama Said was played, viewers could see snippets showing her mother's unhappy face.
The show had well documented her mom's strained relationship with her ex Josh.
After her relationship with Josh, the MTV star went on to have a second child in 2015 – a daughter named Ellie Jade with ex Ryan Rice.
The TV personality welcomed her third child, son Bodhi, last July with her husband Kyle Ledda.
The two tied the knot in July 2020, and she told fans she'd “married my best freakin friend."
In December, Nikkole had some legal troubles with her other ex, Ryan, as she contacted local police after her ex and their daughter Ellie went "missing" during their Christmas visitation.
She grew increasingly frantic as he ignored her attempts to reach him and their daughter.
Nikkole texted: "You've ignored my text from an hour and a half ago and now you've ignored my FaceTime. Per the court order, you have 30 minutes to have [redacted] call me back. Thank you."
After a while of not hearing from him, she requested a "welfare check" from the police.
Nikkole later updated fans, revealing in a post on her Instagram Story: "So I can't really sleep right now and I just wanted to give a quick update.
"I have not made contact with my child but I have made contact with my child's father.
"I had to use somebody else's phone to be able to get ahold of him and he said that he's not with my child and that my child is with his mother."
