Teen Mom 2 star Leah Calvert became a three-time mother on February 4 with the birth of her daughter Addalynn. Fans have been clamoring for a look at the new arrival, and now their wish has come true.
In an exclusive interview, Leah tells Us Weekly that although her due date wasn’t until March, little Addalynn had plans of her own. Leah’s water broke five weeks ahead of schedule, surprising everyone – especially her husband Jeremy.
“He was a nervous wreck,” says Leah. Understandably so, since this is his first child. The MTV star has three-year-old twin daughters, Aliannah and Aleeah, with her first husband, Corey Simms.
But once Addalynn arrived, all worries were forgotten. “We were amazed – she was just so beautiful,” says Leah. “She reached out and grabbed hold of Jeremy’s little finger. It was just so emotional.”
It’s a particularly joyous time for the couple, considering the events of the past year. Shortly after they were engaged in December of 2011, Leah suffered a miscarriage. Now that they have a child together, Leah says, “She’s such a blessing, because it was really hard for us to lose our first child. So she’s very, very spoiled.”
Ali and Aleeah are enjoying being big sisters – perhaps a little too much. “They were trying to pick her up and carry her around,” laughs their mom. “We had to put a stop to that! I think they get the concept now.”
Leah kept to her baby-naming pattern with her new daughter, giving her both a multisyllabic “A” first name and a spiritually-oriented middle name: Faith. (Ali and Aleeah’s middle names are Hope and Grace.) The baby, she says, is the spitting image of her dad. “[H]er nose, cheeks and mouth all look like Jeremy’s.”
Judge for yourself!
