'Teen Mom 2' Leah Messer Is In Love — And Her New Man Is A Single Parent Just Like Her!

Forget Corey Simms and Robbie Kidd! Leah has a new baby-faced beau and he’s a single dad from her home state of West Virginia — and did we mention he’s an aspiring race-car driver?!

It was rumored that Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer, 19, was “secretly dating” her ex Robbie Kidd after filing her divorce from baby daddy Corey Simms. But, it seems that Robbie IS NOT the new guy in Leah’s life. She’s said to be dating race-car driver Tyler Blankenship, a soon-to-be divorced single father of one from West Virginia. Wow, these two have a lot in common!

“Leah and her mom went to watch him race last weekend,” a friend tells Ok! magazine. “She said she had an awesome time, but she is trying to keep their relationship under wraps.” Well so much for that, “friend!” You just spilled the beans!

Just like Leah, Tyler, 20, is currently separated from his wife Kelly and has a young son named Cashton. Although he is not formally a race-car driver, he is trying to make it as a professional while he works as a self-employed tow truck driver.

Leah, whose divorce from Corey, 20, has not be finalized yet, has been focused on her 18-month-old twins Aleeah and Aliannah, but is “ready for a new relationship” with Tyler … and potential stepson Cashton.

“Corey is still seeing a girl named Amber [Scaggs] and Leah is still pretty hurt over the divorce,” her pal says,” but she’s moving on.”

Leah is under contract with MTV until the girls turn five, so that means if Tyler and Leah’s relationship lasts, we could be seeing him on future seasons of Teen Mom 2!

Sadly the second season has already wrapped filming, so we’ll have to wait a while, but hey, it’s worth it to see Leah happy, right?

Are you glad Leah has left BOTH of her exes behind to start a fresh relationship with Tyler? VOTE!
