Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is looking forward to being a third time mom.
After suffering a miscarriage this January, Leah and her husband Jeremy Calvert put their baby making plans on hold but received a happy surprise just months later.
“I’m not going to say it wasn’t planned, because we intended to try — eventually,” she tells Us Weekly. “It just happened a little sooner than we expected.”
“Our parents are thrilled,” she adds. “It’ll be Jeremy’s parents’ first grandchild, so they’re really excited.”
“There is a reason God gave the baby to us now,” the 20-year-old mother to twins Aleeah and Ali with ex-husband Corey Simms says.
While some critics say Leah is too young to have another child, the MTV star – who first appeared on season two of 16 and Pregnant – says she’s ready to welcome baby no. 3.
“The path I chose isn’t right for everyone, but it’s right for me,” she explains. “I am financially stable — we just bought our first home — and I’m emotionally fit to have another child. I’m 100 percent prepared — way more than I was at 16.”
Jeremy and Leah are set to welcome their first child together this winter.
