Now that MTV has officially declared that this season of Teen Mom 2 will be its last (the same fate that befell the original Teen Mom series a few months back), fans are more eager than ever to watch the evolving lives of the young mothers who have gone from uncertain teens to young adults finding their way in the world.
But once the show ends, you’ll still be able to catch up with stars like Leah Calvert, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, Maci Bookout and Jenelle Evans through their Twitter accounts and Instagram photos. They’re proud to share their happy news and – of course! - the latest pictures of their completely adorable children. (This time around, there’s even a photo of the newest TM baby!)
What have they been up to recently? Take a look!

Leah Calvert: Her three sweeties! 3 of 16
Leah continues to enjoy life with her husband and three daughters. (Little Aliannah enjoys that classic warm-weather pastime: blowing bubbles.) "They're growing up way too fast!" Leah sighed recently on her Twitter feed.
She's doing well at her new job with a local tanning salon, and husband Jeremy is back at work as a pipeline fitter. Best of all, her birthday is this week. Bet there's a fun celebration planned!

Kailyn Lowry: Are the rumors true? 6 of 16
This young mom spent a few days in South Carolina to see her brother-in-law, Sal Marroquin, graduate from Army training. While there, she got friendly with a flamingo.

In fact, they could be a dual military couple one day! Kail tweeted last week, "My husband is active AF. But I want to join."
