Leah Messer and her family were recently featured in a pictorial with Us Weekly debuting their newest addition, Baby Adalynn Faith Calvert. The photos were cute but some felt as though Leah didn’t seem happy about the pictures, so what was going on behind the scenes?
After one fan claimed that her smile was “pathetic,” Leah took to Twitter to defend herself. “That smile is being exhausted with a 3 years sick and fussy trying to take a pic,” she wrote, adding, “Have you ever had pics done with 2 three year olds and a newborn?” It has to be hard getting not one but three young children to be content at the same time — let alone having them remain so for an extended period of time and pose for photographs.
Plus, having the pressure of knowing that the photos would be on the cover of a national magazine had to be a bit much for Leah as well. Sure, she’s on TV every week but photographs are forever and seen by everyone — not just Teen Mom fans.
