Known mostly from the show 16 & Pregnant, the former Leah Messer was a cheerleader from a small town in West Virginia when she got pregnant and began filming the MTV show.

During her pregnancy, it was discovered that she was pregnant with twin girls, which complicated the pregnancy and her relationship with the father, Corey Simms. She was able to get the babies near term with bedrest and medication. The couple split and got back together upon discovering that one twin has muscular dystrophy. By the end of the season of Teen Mom 2, Leah was dating her future husband but had also started taking anxiety medication, for which she was tested in court to see if she was addicted. She has since had a third child.
