Leah Messer Opens Up About Her Miscarriage: “I Don’t Know If It Was Just Stress or What”
Everyone's favorite West Virginia mountain mama, Teen Mom 2's Leah Messer, gave fans a shock when she found out that she was pregnant with baby no. 3 just months after her divorce from Corey Simms. This gal got knocked up shortly after meeting her now-husband, Jeremy Calvert, in late 2011, but sadly lost the baby in early 2012 at just 8-weeks pregnant.
"I had a miscarriage," an emotional Leah told Dr. Drew during Teen Mom 2's Season 3 reunion special. "I don't know if it was just stress or what."
Leah definitely had a lot to be stressed out about — she was newly engaged to Jeremy, but still had feelings for Corey! Plus, let's not forget the fact that she was taking care of twin girls, one of whom has health problems.
"It was like family," Leah explained when Dr. Drew asked why she tried to get pregnant so soon after having twins. "I wanted that feeling with [Jeremy]."
Leah and Jeremy gave birth to an adorable daughter on February 4, 2013, but not a day goes by when Jer doesn't think about Leah's miscarriage. "I think about it every day," he told Dr. Drewski. "Just wondering what he or she would be like."
Awww, poor Jeremy! Thank goodness he and Leah were able to get pregnant again — we can't wait to see the first pics of their gorgeous new bundle of joy!
