Always in her heart. Jenelle Evans took to Instagram on Thursday, December 22, to pay tribute to her late 16 and Pregnant costar Valerie Fairman, who died yesterday at age 23 of an apparent overdose.

The Teen Mom 2 star, 25, posted a photo of herself and Fairman — who both appeared on season 2 of the hit MTV docuseries in 2010 — cheek to cheek and smiling during a reunion taping.

“Rest Easy Angel. 💔👼🏽,” she captioned the pic, sharing her condolences for Fairman’s loved ones — especially her 7-year-old daughter, Nevaeh. “#RIPValerie my heart is heavy and my prayers go out to your family and Nevaeh.”

Earlier in the day, Evans (who has openly spoken about her past issues with substance abuse), revealed in since-deleted tweets that she had talked to Fairman in recent months, and encouraged the reality TV alum to remain sober.

“Oh my god. 😢 I just spoke to her a couple months ago and told her I’m proud of her and looks like she’s doing good. 💔,” the pregnant North Carolina resident — who is expecting her third child, her first with boyfriend David Eason — wrote. “This really upsets me. … I told her to stay on track. 😞💔”

As previously reported, Fairman’s mother told TMZ that her daughter was at a friend’s house in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, December 21, and refused to come out of the bathroom. Her pal eventually broke down the door and discovered the young mom unresponsive. Though her official cause of death is yet to be determined, TMZ reports that it appeared to be a fatal overdose. Fairman’s daughter is currently staying with her grandmother.

Farrah Abraham, who appeared on season 1 of 16 and Pregnant and now stars on Teen Mom OG, also honored Fairman with a touching Instagram post.
