This has been a big year for the cast of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 – business ventures, new loves, broken engagements, lecture tours and the bittersweet finale of the original series that featured Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout, Kailyn Lowry and Amber Portwood.
But topping them all is the story of Leah Messer. After a brief marriage to Corey Simms, the father of twins Ali and Aleeah, she found herself single again – until Jeremy Calvert walked into her life.
The friendship quickly blossomed into romance, and an engagement ring was on Leah’s finger by Christmas. Then Jeremy stood by her through a devastating miscarriage – a trauma that could have split a less-committed couple. He also showed his devotion to Leah’s daughters, rejoicing as Ali grew stronger and started walking with assistance.
Leah and Jeremy wasted no time in making their relationship permanent. After having a small civil ceremony in April, they had an official wedding in June.
Now Leah is making another big change in her life! What could it be?She’s taken her new husband’s name – something she didn’t do for her first marriage.
Her Twitter account now identifies her as “Leah D. Calvert.”
And while some naysayers still snark at her online for her whirlwind romance and for past mistakes, Leah is determined to ignore them and move on. Her profile description includes the phrase, “There’s no such thing as Picture Perfect…So Picture Perfect I will never be.”
The couple is enjoying a romantic vacation (honeymoon?) on the beach this week, but they’ll be back this weekend in time to take the girls to a local fair.
All happiness to the Calverts!
