Leah Messer and her husband Jeremy Calvert are expecting a baby this winter and while many have grown concerned that Leah may not be ready for a third baby at just 20 years old, she insists that she is and knows that the pregnancy came at the right time.
“There is a reason God gave the baby to us now,” she tells Us Weekly. Leah and Jeremy conceived a child last year around this time, but unfortunately, the pregnancy ended in miscarriage. Now, she is five months along with a baby girl and she couldn’t be happier.
“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.” Leah is definitely in a different place than she was before but since she’s been through so much, it’s hard to get on the same page with her.
In the last year and a half, she’s been divorced, gotten pregnant, gotten married, and then gotten pregnant again. It just seems like a whole lot for someone so young to handle, but if she says she can handle it, best wishes to her.
