Talk about a glow-up!
All of the Teen Mom cast members have changed pretty significantly since their first appearances on the show. From plastic surgery to addictions to ever-changing relationships and new baby daddies, the Teen Moms have faced it all and come out on the other side as changed women — especially Leah Messer.
Leah has gone through some heartbreaking moments during her time on the show. Fans have watched as the star went through two divorces as well as treatment for depression and anxiety. Add all that to the fact that she’s navigating how to best raise a daughter with muscular dystrophy on her own, and she’s really had a rough go.
But the mother-of-three’s recent transformation has fans absolutely shocked. They think she might have even gone under the knife! Considering how she started on the show, some fans think her recent look renders her completely unrecognizable.
Leah has been through a lot of the years (so settle in for a Teen Mom Talk Now timeline).
She began her Teen Mom journey, she was just another cheerleader from a small town in West Virginia. When she first became pregnant, she received a shock that none of her co-stars had: she was pregnant with twins! The high school senior struggled to graduate while she was balancing two daughters and a relationship with Corey Simms. It wasn’t long before Leah and Corey split, and Leah went back to her ex, Robbie.
When Leah and Corey got back together, it seemed like her life was going to improve… But when Leah admitted she had cheated on Corey, they broke up — again.
That’s when Leah began dating Jeremy Calvert… Even though she admitted she still had feelings for Corey. Together the couple had Addie, and that’s when things got bad again for the star.
Leah’s Low Point
Leah started taking medicine for anxiety and depression. This was also the time that the rumors of her drug abuse started up. At her lowest point, Leah was caught on camera nodding off in the middle of a sentence as she held her infant niece.
