And babies make four?!
According to an insider, Teen Mom 2‘s Leah Messer just found out that she’s carrying not one, but two babies.
In Touch magazine reports that the 19-year-old went to the doctor last week and got the unexpected news. “Leah can’t believe how lucky she is to have two more babies,” says the source. “[She] is absolutely thrilled.”
It’s the latest development in a whirlwind of events that began with Leah’s divorce from ex Corey Simms. She found new love with Jeremy in August; by Christmas they were engaged and the rumors of her pregnancy were out.
But is the young mom happy over this news for all the wrong reasons?
Apparently, Leah hopes her expanding family will lead to a lucrative new spinoff show. Having spent her season’s earnings from the MTV show on a new house and car, she’s strapped for cash and still unemployed. A show of her own would ease the pinch. “She wants her own series and her own brand, just like Kate [Gosselin],” says the talkative source.
So far, Leah’s keeping mum on the news – in fact, she hasn’t officially announced that she’s pregnant at all. Most of her latest tweets have been reactions to last night’s episodes of Teen Mom 2: “My baby girls are so amazing! They’re were truly sent from heaven! I love them so much <3 #soooblessed.”
But this morning, she posted a cryptic tweet with four emoticons – three angry, one sad – which is fueling the gossip mill as we speak.
Happy, angry, loving, sad? That sounds about right for a teen who’ll soon discover the multiple challenges of raising four children on a limited income.
Has Leah gotten herself in over her head? We’re really starting to worry.
