Mom, yes – Teen, no!
Today, Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer turns 20, and she’s certainly come a long way. When the show first aired, the West Virginia high-schooler was trying to adjust to new motherhood – of twin girls born prematurely, no less – and her on-again, off-again relationship with boyfriend Corey Simms.
Now she’s a young adult, sadder but wiser for her divorce, hoping for her happily-ever-after with new husband Jeremy Calvert. As Leah would be the first to tell you, she’s not perfect, but she’s learning from her missteps and getting plenty of support from her friends and family.
And her daughters? Aleeah and Aliannah (“Ali”) are happy, fun-loving toddlers making new strides every day!
Take a look at some of the highlights of Leah’s life as a mom over the past few years!
Happy birthday, Leah!
