Leah Messer — Is The ‘Teen Mom 2′ Star Too Young For Another Baby?

Leah announced that she is pregnant with her third child on Oct. 23. At 20-years-old, Leah is in her second marriage, raising twins and expecting a third baby in the winter. Is she too young for this much responsibility?

Leah Calvert  (maiden name Messer) and husband Jeremy Calvert will soon be welcoming a bouncing bundle of joy into their lives, and while a new baby is always an exciting and joyous occasion, the Teen Mom 2 star has already got a lot on her plate for someone so young. Will Leah be able to cope with this much responsibility?

Leah is already a mom to two-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah, whom she had with her ex-husband, Corey Simms. Leah and Corey divorced in April 2011, and she married Jeremy a year later. Leah suffered a devastating miscarriage at the beginning of this year, which was followed by the death of her grandmother in March, weeks before her second wedding.

In the space of a few short months, Leah has experienced much more than many other girls her age, including any of her former 16 and Pregnant co-stars.

It is fair to say that Leah has had a tough year. Perhaps a new baby is exactly what she needs to get over all her pain. But realistically, Leah is under a lot of pressure, and a new baby will not help her situation. Furthermore, Leah’s daughter Ali suffered with developmental problems after she was born – how will Leah cope if something similar happens with her new baby?

What is perhaps most shocking of all is that Leah was purposefully trying to get pregnant. These problems would be a lot for a woman twice Leah’s age to cope with, so it is fair to ask — will Leah be able to manage?

Dr. Carole Lieberman, M.D., says that “Leah is out of control. Having three babies with two men by the time she is 20 shows a complete lack of responsibility. It’s clear that Leah cannot be a mom to three children when she hasn’t grown up yet herself.”

Dr. Susan Abbott, an adolescent psychiatrist, believes that “if she is emotionally stable, she may be able to make it work.” However, Dr. Abbott insists that “Leah is not a role model for other young girls.”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Leah too young to have another baby?

its clear after the reunion that she felt like if she had a kid she could have the same feelings she has towards corey with jeremy and that would solve the “i dont knows” that were going around. the problem is that she may feel better in the beginning because shell have that family feel with jeremy however is she going to be feeling the same way 5/10 years from now? shes either going to feel the same way she feels with jeremy as she has felt with corey or shes REALLY going to be confused with both of them. plus for her to leave jeremy now would be a LOT harder now that she has a kid with him. she obviously should have taken a step back and figured out how true her feelings were before she went and had a 3rd kid but thats too late now.

Leah doesn’t criticize anyone nor bother with anyone else’s business , so as she does no ill will toward anyone then all should have no negative comments nor any false opinions against her. She is a straight laced happy on sunny day as well as on a rainy day. She has been blessed with her well inner being as well as her gorgeous physical appearance. Don’t hate on her just because she’s beautiful.

You don’t HAVE to go to college to be successful.

She’s married, she’s financially stable and isn’t claiming any welfare, she has a supportive and loving family and manages to successfully co parent with her ex husband. What’s the problem?

Bogus!!! back in the day people were having kids young left and right! Granite some people are unfit and just flay out shouldn’t have kids, is another story. My parents had 3 kids by the time my mom was 19, and her and my dad did just fine. As with ANY age, no one is ‘really’ ever ready to have a baby. You adapt, and for someone to say she is ‘not a role model’ is a load of crap too. She takes care of her children and just because she has 2 different fathers for her kids DOESN’T mean she’s irresponsible, WELCOME TO TODAY’S SOCIETY! People don’t stay together long and if they do than they were truly meant to be. Life goes on! Let people live their life and stop judging others!

Let her live her life. She has done a great job being a mom to her twins, facing Ali’s disability like any good mother would; head on, doing whatever needs to be done to help her development. Everyone is different, being a good mother is part of who you are NOT defined by your age. Plenty of older women who don’t have children til later in life cant handle being a parent. It is NOT out of control to fall in love and want to expand your family. She absolutely is a role model for putting her children and family first. She will no doubt raise her upcoming child to be a strong, responsible person just like she is doing with her twins.

if leah was blac k no one would think twice that she would have 3 children with 2 different men by the time she was 20. if she was blac k the surprise would be that she had bothered to marry the “baby daddies”

mom of 4

Posted at 5:18 PM on January 23, 2013  

Speaking from experiences i have a 11 year old son twins that are 9 and 8 year old daughter i was a mom of four by the time i was 23 , i know personally whats she is going through. Being a young mom with multiple children is not a bad thing in all cases i think she is strong enough to handle it and my oldest twin also has learning disabilities as well, twins are not as hard as everyone makes it out to be either moms of multiples learn how to adapt. And the fact everyone is throwing up the 2 different men thing is nonsense so just because you have a child with one man your supposed to never have children again… even if your married to that man thats crazy i see my self in her in alot ways when i was younger, some ladies have what it takes and some dont i believe she will be fine and congrats to the baby, marriage and to a bright future

What’s really going on with that Jeremy character. So far from what I’ve seen he’s a sniveling, whining, mumbling and kinda feminine type of mannerisms, and he’s gone all week. Man I don’t know if that’s safe for either one of these two young lovers. I’m really hoping that Leah can at least hang onto her own self respect by remaining faithful to her own self interests. I’m sure she’s aware of her very gorgeous body and her very pretty face. Those bikini pics of herself look very inviting with all the posing she was doing. Leah, you are one hot rockin’ babe. Peace out.

Now I know that there are a whole lot of young girls that have had children and yet were to immature to bring them up right and so then depended on their mothers, and even grandmothers, but I’m as sure as I am a Christian that Leah will do just fine as a young mother. After all, she hasn’t exhibited any strain or stress whatsoever, so therefore let’s have some faith in this very pretty young lady that she will continue to succeed in her faithful efforts of being a very good mother towards her beautiful babies. GOD bless her in all she does…,amen.

I personally think she is way too young to have ANOTHER kid. The purpose of the show was to help younger girls from having kids at such an early age, not glorify having kids. Yes, I understand she is now an adult, but let us not forget she was very young when she had her twins and got married. Seriously, she is now on her 2nd marriage, 3rd child (excluding her miscarriage) and is not even legally old enough to order a drink (not that, that matters, just making a point). Kids are a blessing, however the goal is to make sure you are financially and emotionally ready to have them. I understand being prepared is not always possible, but she purposely set out to get pregnant.

She may be sweet but she’s also not very intelligent to remarry so quickly and have another child. The chances of having a child with developmental problems are much higher once you have a child with those problems.

I don’t think age has anything to do with it. I myself am a young mom I have two children and am 20 years old with the same father but I belii belive that you need to follow you happiness wherever it leads you. I don’t think any one should judge young moms because we are capable of pulling it together and no one on the outside can tell you if your not ready or are to expand your family with who makes you happy even if it’s someone different….

I recently happen to see Leah in some pics in a bikini and she is one hot lookin’ babydoll with a very nice tan and very healthy lookin’ at that. I knew she was good lookin’, but WOW!!! she is actually very gorgeous and with her full on blonde hair and her pretty face, she most certainly has a very bright future. No doubt she’ll be asked to do a layout for playboy magazine, but she’s not about all that, but she does have a hot rockin’ body. GOD really blessed Leah with all her beauty.

she is a really great girl. she is going to college and getting her nursing degree. so what if she is married again, she is a girl in love and there is nothing wrong with that. it has nothing to do with responsibility. she is a great role model for her girls and i am super excited for her and jeremy. i love that she is having another baby!
