Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah. MTV, as well as teenage pregnancy awareness groups, often advocate that the Teen Mom spin-offs (along with their 16 and Pregnant predecessors) are doing an amazing job warning young girls about the perils of practicing unsafe sex and having babies too early. While that may be very true, it’s ironic that the same girls featured on these shows as “examples of what not to do” are the ones who are learning nothing from their current situations.
Case in point, Hollybaby.com is citing a story that claims Leah Messer, the just recently divorced mother of twin girls, is expecting her third child with boyfriend Jeremy Calvert, 22. You know, the guy she met in July a month after finalizing her divorce (also the one she moved in with in October). Apparently, she’s taking things slowly for a nineteen-year-old which scares the old lady in me immensely!
One of Leah’s “friends” (God love these girls’ “true friends”) tells InTouch Weekly that Leah has wanted to get pregnant with her new beau’s baby for a while… and that ‘while’ can’t be more than a couple months just by math’s sake, given the pair’s quick courtship. The pal reveals, “She was actively trying to conceive with Jeremy. She stopped using birth control last month.” Can I make a suggestion that will likely be shot down by readers and MTV alike? If your teen moms really want to continue being teen moms several times over, it’s probably time to take them out of the rotation.
On December 9, Leah was seen leaving St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Virginia. According to the source, the already mother of two “was glowing.” States the source, “She looked like she had just heard some big news.” Said witness is apparently also a lip reader, as he/she reported that Leah called Jeremy on her way out of her doctor’s appointment — which confirmed her home pregnancy results — to exclaim, “I’m pregnant.”
The friend continues
as he/she is getting paid by the word, “[Leah] sees Jeremy act like a wonderful father and she believes the baby will make the family stronger. She thinks this is the best decision for Ali and Aleeah.” No word currently as to whether the 2-year-old twins’ father, Corey Simms, agrees. I’m going to venture a guess that he’s not on board. A source close to the former spouses agrees, admitting that Corey is beyond angry with his recent ex-wife. Corey, 21, allegedly said, “[She is] a slut and doesn’t have her head on straight.” Let’s watch it with the name calling there, bud. You have daughters to raise!
Another friend (they just come out of the woodwork, don’t they?) shares, “Leah forgets that she’s only been dating Jeremy for a few months.” Concurring is Leah’s stepfather. The pal says, “He thinks she is too young for another kid.”
Hopefully, if this news is true, Jeremy is in on this grand plan. The same blog is also reporting that Leah is ready to bestow the role of new daddy on her live-in love, and she is openly gushing that she’d love to be engaged to Jeremy. Is MTV taking the hint and planning on yet another wedding as the backdrop for season 3 of Teen Mom 2?
“Leah is going full stream ahead, she loves that Jeremy is acting like a father to the girls. She is more than fine with him taking Corey’s place,” says a source, who adds,“She doesn’t see anything wrong with it and is happy to be moving on.”
Not shockingly, Corey isn’t keen on being reduced to second fiddle in the twins’ lives. He retorts, “My girls know who their daddy is. I’d die for my girls. Jeremy is not there to replace me. No one will keep me from them.”
It is a blessing that the girls are loved by so many, with Jeremy tweeting on December 16, “Happy Birthday Ali and Aleeah! You girls mean the word to me. I love you both beyond words!” He followed up his well wishes on Tuesday with a declaration to their mother: “@TM2LeahDawn baby I’ll always be there for u no matter what ! I love you!” Funny… not too long ago, Mr. Calvert’s tweets were private. I guess he can’t leave his fans in the dark! Regardless, wow. Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah.
DO YOU THINK THAT LEAH IS PREGNANT AGAIN? SHOULD SHE BE TRYING TO REPLACE COREY WITH JEREMY IN THE TWINS’ LIFE? TRICK QUESTION—OF COURSE NOT! DO YOU THINK JEREMY’S TWEETS ARE APPROPRIATE OR SHOULD HE BE MORE SENSITIVE TO COREY?
