She’s excited – and she’s ready.
Teen Mom 2 star Leah Calvert is pregnant with her third child, just a few months after her wedding to Jeremy Calvert. The news caused more than a few eyebrows to raise, considering that Leah is only 20 and already has her hands full with twins Aliannah and Aleeah. But, she says, things are much different this time around.
She tells Us Weekly exclusively that while this new baby was a surprise, it’s a much-wanted one. “I’m not going to say it wasn’t planned, because we intended to try – eventually,” she says. “It just happened a little sooner than we expected.”
Leah, who also suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, adds, “There is a reason God gave this baby to us now.”
Things have changed for Leah since her first pregnancy at 16. She’s in a happy marriage and settling nicely into wedded life in their North Carolina town. Unlike many young moms, she also has the advantage of her celebrity, and between her MTV earnings and Jeremy’s impressive income as a pipeline engineer, they can give all of their children a good life. The couple’s parents are also delighted about the new baby.
“The path I chose isn’t for everyone, but it’s right for me,” she tells the magazine. “I am financially stable – we just bought our first home – and I’m emotionally fit to have a child. I am 100 percent prepared – way more than I was at 16.”
Though Leah hasn’t officially confirmed the rumors that she’s expecting another girl, the world will find out soon enough. The new arrival is due this winter. In the meantime, she and Jeremy have more to look forward to: their first holidays as a married couple and the celebration of Ali and Aleeah’s 3rd birthday next month.
Here’s hoping for continued happiness for the young family!
