Young hearts heal quickly. Just a few short months after Teen Mom 2‘s Leah Messer and Corey Simms ended their brief marriage, both of them have moved on to new loves. Leah is over the moon about Jeremy Calvert – and now Corey has announced the identity of the new woman in his life.
She’s 24-year-old Summer Tavarez – and after just a month and a half of dating Corey, she’s already talking about being a part of his daughters’ lives.
In an exclusive interview with HollywoodLife.com, Summer reveals that she met 2-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah at a Christmas party thrown by Corey’s dad. “It’s a good time, especially for me to be around them when they are so young,” she says. “I really just tried to talk to them. I can’t wait until I can actually be around them [more].”
Summer vows that she has no problem with dating a man with children. “If me and Corey are going to be together, that’s a huge part of his life,” she says. “I’ll definitely be a part of it.”The tanning-salon manager also has no animosity towards Leah, whom she’s met briefly. “I’m sure I’m going to talk to her eventually, especially me being around the girls a lot,” she says.
She’s glad the exes are on good terms, for Ali and Aleeah’s sake. “My best interest is in the girls,” she says. “They’re always going to have a relationship because of them, and it’s important to me, because if not, it’s going to be hard on them and hard on everybody.”
And she has nothing but high praise for their parenting. “I really want everyone to realize how great parents Leah and Corey both are,” Summer emphasizes. “They are like the best.” As a dad, “Corey spoils them,” she says. “He’s in love with those girls.”
And with Summer, too, it seems. Recent tweets by Corey contain hashtags like #bestgirlfriendintheworld and #mostamazinggirlintheworld #followher. (Want to take him up on it? She’s @summertavarez.)
So will this Summer romance last into winter of 2012 and beyond? She and Corey seem confident that it will…
