With Kailyn Lowry about to become the first Teen Mom 2 star to have four babies, some fans wonder if any of the other cast members want to have more kids in the future. While Chelsea Houska has been open about wanting to have at least one more kid, it turns out that Leah Messer may be stopping at three.
On Tuesday, Leah took to her Instagram to post a series of five photos of her youngest daughter, Addie, for her birthday. The young girl, whom she shares with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert, turned 7-years-old on Tuesday. The first snap showed Addie with a Paris-themed birthday cake which was pink, silver, black, and white. The front of the cake had her name along with a number seven — also in pink icing — beneath it. Leah was standing behind her youngest in the photo, as both mother and daughter had smiles on their faces.
The other photos featured Addie throughout the years, while the fifth image was taken at the same birthday party. However, this photo showed a camera crew indicating that perhaps MTV was there filming for Teen Mom 2.
In the caption, Leah talked about the “joy” and “love” that Addie brings to their family, calling herself “blessed” to be the child’s mom. However, it wasn’t the sweet caption celebrating her daughter that had fans talking, but rather one of the comments she replied to after thanking her followers for their support.
“I don’t think I want anymore babies. Im enjoying the three I have loll,” Leah wrote, adding two emojis before writing, “That’s a lot of college tuitions.”

Here’s to lucky 7️⃣ baby girl! ????????????♒️ #imtheluckyone #aquarius #happybirthday @calvertmtv505
The above comment was in response to a fan’s question after they told the Teen Mom 2 star that she needs to “try for a boy.”
Interestingly, these remarks are similar to the ones Leah made a few weeks ago when she was asked if she wanted to have more kids. At the time, she explained that she “didn’t know” if she wanted to add to her brood. However, she talked about college tuition, later admitting that it is something she thinks about now. With three young girls who are getting older, college is something that Leah needs to think about, and not wanting to worry about a fourth child’s educational expenses is understandable on her part.
For now, Leah seems content raising her 10-year-old twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, as well as her now-7-year-old daughter Addie.
