Jenelle Evans' ex-husband Courtland Rogers was released from prison on Saturday.

And in a sign of his priorities, Rogers, 31, immediately started tweeting-- and took his first selfie!

Rogers logged into his old Twitter account and wrote to his followers, "Been dreaming about this day for a longgggggg time now…" and "How wonderful it feels to be in my bed."

Upon getting out of prison, Rogers tweeted a selfie photo of himself wearing a baseball cap with his neck tattoos prominently visible--with the caption, "First picture of 2017."  He included a thumb's up emoji.

He spent about 16 months in the New Hanover Correctional Center in Wilmington, North Carolina, after being sentenced in Dec. 2015 for possession of heroin  and being a habitual felon, as Radar has reported. Rogers had pled guilty to the charges.

Although Evans' ex-husband didn't appear much on camera on Teen Mom 2, his tumultuous time with her is well known by the show's fans. She filed assault charges against him in 2013, but then went back to dating him,  as Radar noted at the time.

But Evans, now 25, divorced Rogers in 2014. They had married in 2012.

The former couple was arrested in April 2013 for possession of heroin and assault for a domestic dispute. Evans became pregnant with Rogers' child, but aborted the baby because of their toxic relationship, as Radar reported.

Evans is now engaged to David Eason.

On Rogers' revived Twitter feed, he posted video of his adorable daughter Jaja, writing, "Just cried my eyes out to this…this was the night before I went away for a year and a half." He included a crying face emoji and added, "look how cute we are."

Jaja is the girl Rogers had with his baby mama Taylor Lewis.

Rogers claimed he was "Stone Cold Sober" via Twitter,  and noted when showing a picture of a big plate of breakfast bacon and eggs," Sure has been a while."

Rogers was originally sentenced to three years in prison after he was arrested on November 20, 2015, as Radar reported.

But he got a reduced sentence and as officer told Radar, "There is an advanced supervised release program. They have to meet a certain criteria and not get certain infractions and be in classes to have a reduced sentence."
