This is every mother’s nightmare—there’s something seriously wrong with Leah’s baby.

As fans of Teen Mom have seen, one of Leah Messer‘s twin daughters, Ali, just isn’t developing properly as she grows. “She doesn’t bear any weight on her legs at all and her hands don’t close,” Leah told the doctor on the Jan 18th episode. Now, according to a new report in OK! magazine, the adorable toddler’s doctors are saying she might never walk on her own! But why? According to a source close to Leah, for much of her pregnancy Ali’s twin sister, Alleeah, was lying on top of her, impeding her development. “Leah is terrified that she will never walk properly,” says the source.

While her sister, Aleeah has been developing normally, the insider confirms that Ali has been seeing a physical therapist several times a week: “Ali will have to be fitted with leg braces for an unknown amount of time, and they can’t predict how much it will help.”  And that’s not the only bad news. “Ali’s legally blind without her thick glasses,” adds a close friend of Leah’s.

Even though baby Ali is having all kinds of health troubles, she remains a happy, cheerful infant. “She’s a happy, curious, precious little baby who loves playing with her sister and being doted on by her daddy,” says the family friend. “Ali is a fighter.”
