Teen Mom 2's Leah Messer opens up to the new issue Life & Style--on newsstands now--about overcoming her daughter Aliannah's health issues after doctors finally told her on last night's episode that Aliannah is not suffering from mental abnormalities.
"I was relieved," Leah tells Life & Style about hearing the good the news about Aliannah, 2, who developed at an alarmingly slower rate than her twin sister, Aleeah. "The worst thing I could've heard would be that there's something wrong with Aliannah's brain." And although Leah has tried her best to hide her nerves from her daughter, "it was pretty hard and emotional as a mom to know that something could be wrong with my child," she tells Life & Style.
So while Aleeah took her first steps nearly a year ago, Leah is just as proud of Aliannah's scooting around on her knees and the progress she's made with her physical therapist. "She's doing great," gushes Leah.'
Now almost in the clear -- doctors have yet to rule out a genetic disorder for Ali -- Leah's thinking about expanding her family. In fact, multiple outlets have reported that Leah and boyfriend Jeremy Calvert, who are heating up fast, are expecting. "Jeremy and I do talk about getting engaged," Leah reveals.
Teen Mom 2 airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on MTV.
