Fans new to Teen Mom 2 may be wondering who exactly the Southern belle that graces their screens is. We’re talking about Leah Messer, mother to two adorable twin baby girls, Aliannah and Aleeah, and pregnant with another baby on the way! She’s from a small town outside of Charleston, West Virginia and currently resides there with her new husband.
In her episode of 16 and Pregnant, we watched popular cheerleader Leah grow up fast as she took off a semester of her senior year to prepare for the birth of her twin girls. Her complicated relationship with boyfriend Corey Simms didn’t help matters, as she was missing her ex-boyfriend Robbie and wondering if Corey was really right for her.
After her twin girls were born premature (but healthy, thankfully!), Corey and Leah continued to struggle, but eventually realized they both loved each other and wanted to do what was best for the girls. The two were married in a whirlwind wedding and proposal in 2010, but later divorced in April 2011.
Currently Leah is married to Jeremy Calvert and expecting a third child with him. Her daughter Aliannah is a special needs child, which caused quite a bit of stress for the young mom, who is doing everything she can to make sure her daughter is happy and healthy.
