There’s no doubt that the new season of ‘Teen Mom 2’ is going to be full of unexpected shockers, but we’ve rounded up the huge life events that we’ll definitely see the moms go through on season 5.
Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Messer are returning to television for the fifth season of Teen Mom 2 on Jan. 21, 2014. From Kailyn’s beautiful wedding to her and Jenelle’s pregnancies and relationship struggles, find out what’s in store for the next season!
Jenelle Evans Sobers Up & Meets New Boyfriend
Fresh out of rehab, Jenelle finds it difficult to overcome the pulls of her drug addiction. Her estranged husband, Courtland Rogers, is in jail and she is faced with a pregnancy. Jenelle shows that she is trying to make more efforts to say sober for her son Jace, but he is still in the custody of her mom, Barbara Evans. Jenelle and Babs continue to fight about her drug struggles and responsibilities as a mother, but Jenelle seems to be happier than ever when she meets her new boyfriend, Nathan Griffith. Of course, their relationship is not smooth sailing, and the couple fight about money problems and jealousy when Nathan chats up other ladies.
Kailyn Lowry Struggles To Let Her Mom Back Into Her Life
Pregnant Kailyn couldn’t be happier that she’s getting married to her love, Javi Marroquin, but her bliss is strained by the less functional relationships in her life. She and her son Isaac’s father, Jo Rivera fight over custody and visitation rights — and Kailyn just wants what’s best for Isaac. Kailyn is shocked and emotionally drained when her estranged mother, whom she’s had a troubled relationship with for years, reaches out to her before the wedding in attempts to be in Kailyn’s new baby to-be’s life.
Leah Messer Faces Daughter’s Muscular Dystrophy
Leah now has three young children — twins Ali and Aleeah and her newborn baby Addie. Leah is overwhelmed when Ali is diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, and learns that her condition will only worsen in time and likely leave her in a wheelchair. Leah and the twins’ dad Corey Simms decide to enroll Ali in preschool early to give her a head start, but Leah finds that her family struggles to understand the severity of Ali’s condition. Poor Aleeah starts to act out her anger when her sisters are getting more time from her parents. Trying to keep her marriage to Jeremy Calvert afloat amidst the chaos, Leah asks him to go through couple’s counseling with her.
Chelsea Houska Resents Adam Lind’s New Family
Chelsea has a lot of positive changes happening in her life, as she is starting beauty school, but she can’t help but stress about her ex, Adam Lind‘s involvement in their daughter Aubree‘s life. He is starting a new family with his pregnant girlfriend, Taylor Halbur, and feels resentment that he is not being there for his daughter. Their family situation changes dramatically when Adam files for visitation rights and insists that Aubree become a part of his family unit with Taylor.
