It’s been four years since we witnessed the birth of Jace Evans, Aubree Lind, Isaac Rivera, Aliannah & Aleeah Simms, and they have grown up so much! Let’s take a look a look back at the real stars of ‘Teen Mom 2’ — the kids!
Jenelle Evans, 22, Chelsea Houska, 22, Kailyn Lowry, 22, and Leah Messer, 22, let MTV’s cameras into all of their ups and downs when they were all just 18 years old. Now, four years later, their adorable little kids are stealing all of the scenes on Teen Mom 2‘s fifth season! You’ll be shocked at how much they’ve grown up when you check out the side-by-side then and now photos HollywoodLife.com has compiled.
‘Teen Mom 2’s Kids: Jace, Ali, Aubree, & Isaac — How They’ve Grown Up
Wow. Has it really been four years?
We were first introduced to Jenelle, Chelsea, Kailyn, & Leah when the second season of MTV’s 16 & Pregnant premiered on Feb. 16, 2010. On their season of the docu-series, we witnessed their struggles through teen pregnancy, as well as the birth of their four adorable kids: Jace, Aubree, Isaac, Ali, and Aleeah.
Now, they are all 4 years old — and it’s truly shocking to see how much they’ve grown up right before our eyes!
They have all started school already, and pretty soon we will witness them graduating kindergarten and heading into the first grade.
Despite Ali’s muscular dystrophy diagnosis, both she and her twin sister Aleeah have been enjoying their first year of gymnastics. Jace is also part of an extracurricular activity: karate! Jenelle and her boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, enrolled him on the first half of TM2‘s fifth season in hopes it would curb some of his erratic energy.

‘Teen Mom 2’s Kids All Have Little Siblings Now Too
One thing that these four kids have in common — besides being on TV, of course — is that they have all become the “big” sibling in their family.
On the first half of season five, both Aubree and Isaac became “bigs” when their parents welcomed new babies into the family.
First and foremost it was Leah who gave birth to a third daughter, Adalynn, with her husband, Jeremy Calvert in Feb. 2013.
Aubree’s father, Adam Lind, and his ex-girlfriend Taylor Halbur, gave birth to a sweet little girl named Paislee on Sept. 3, 2013, and then Kailyn and her husband, Javi Marroquin, gave birth to the adorable little Lincoln on Nov. 16, 2013.
Last but not least, Jace just became a big brother to Kaiser Griffith, Jenelle’s first child with Nathan, on June 30. How sweet!
