Even though all of the 16 and Pregnant cast members were thrown for a loop when they found out they’d be having a child before graduating from high school, Leah Messer’s shock was even more complicated than the rest of the cast, since she found out that she would be having twins!
Since then, fans have tuned in every week to see Leah slowly grow and mature when it comes to raising her children. There have been some seriously dark times in her life, and moments when fans were stunned at the way she was raising her three daughters. But it’s safe to say that Leah has come a long way from when Ali and Aleeah were in diapers.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that Leah is completely finished making mistakes as a mother, and some fans are furious with her over recent photos she posted of her daughters.
Halloween has come and gone, and the Teen Mom cast members were very generous in sharing adorable pictures of their children in cute costumes. Some were spooky, some were sweet, they were all super cute, but one in particular has fans pretty upset.
At ten years old, Leah Messer’s older daughters, Ali and Aleeah, are old enough by now to pick out their own Halloween costumes. And being that they’re in their pre-teen years, it’s no wonder that they’re obsessed with celebrities. So even while Leah’s third daughter, Addie, decided to dress up as a spooky scary witch, Ali and Aleeah decided to dress up as their favorite celebrities.
Ali decided to dress up as Beyonce, with curled hair and a head to toe shimmering gold dress. While Aleeah, who towers above her, dressed up as the one and only Ariana Grande.
Many fans were excited to see Leah’s daughters having fun on their spooky night out, but some found this to be a shocking example of bad parenting.
“Aleeah looks way too grown up,” one Instagram user commented, adding a crying emoji. ANother wrote, “OMG I thought the one that was Ariana Grande was [dressed] up as you LMAO.” One fan commented, “Gracie looks 15. THat girl is gonna be troubleeeee.”
“Wow that’s a lot of makeup,” a commenter wrote. Another agreed, “She needs to slack off on the makeup way too much for her age.”
In fact, this isn’t the first time that Leah has been called out for putting a lot of makeup on her daughter. She was similarly flamed after sharing pictures of Aleeah at a cheer event.
“Wearing more makeup than your mama? Weird,” wrote Instagram user @bbygirrrl_ on the cheer pic. User @nlemmer6 wrote, “Too young for that much makeup. She’s very beautiful just like her mom.” @haileyyy_theone wrote, “I don’t think I would let my kid wear that much makeup either ?! Definitely too young to be wearing that much and that loud. It’s sad that they get them started so young.”
