Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is a mom to three girls, 6-year-old Adalynn and her her twin half-sisters Aliannah and Aleeah who are 9, and she’s still close with Adalynn’s father, her ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.
In a new episode, the girls found flirty texts between the exes on their moms phone and confronted her about them, saying that they were confused by the relationship.
Messer didn’t have a straight answer for her children, who said that they just wanted the truth.
“Do I like Jeremy? I like Jeremy because it’s Ady’s dad. Do I like y’all’s dad? Do I think there is any possible relationship stuff? Honestly, I don’t know. We’re going with the flow. Whatever happens, happens.
We’re not dating. I am single. Jeremy is single. We’re doing our thing. This is also adult stuff that you shouldn’t be a part of. Just know that I would never lie to you — if something was going on, I would definitely tell you.”
Messer continued later in the episode, explaining to Adalynn that her parents love her no matter their relationship status.
“You feel confused? What’s confusing about it? Is it because you want to know if we’re getting back together? Yeah? I don’t want it to be confusing for you. I know you want us to get married. But we don’t know what would happen, but right now we get along and do fun stuff with you, ain’t that nice? Mommy and daddy love you.”
Messer admitted last month that she and Calvert did hook up while filming a reunion special, so maybe she should draw firmer lines in the sand for the sake of her kids’ emotional stability.
