Leah Messer is getting another chance to prove she’s a good mother to her daughters! The Teen Mom 2 star received 50/50 custody of her twins Ali and Aleeah, 6, on January 27 after her ex-husband Corey Simms was granted full custody of the girls in October. The mother-of-three celebrated the custody win with a family-fun weekend!
The gang’s all here! Leah was all smiles as she enjoyed Monster Jam with her twins and her 2-year-old daughter Adalynn with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.
The sisters looked ecstatic to be able to spend more time with their mama! Leah will now have the twins on Thursday through Sundays, as their father will have them for the remainder of the week and one weekend a month. They will reportedly “split the bills 50/50.”
“Leah is doing great,” a source told Us Weekly. “She had confidence that she would be proven right and get her custody rights back.”
Despite Corey’s tumultuous past with Leah where he accused her of being a bad mother and abusing drugs, the former couple came to the custody agreement together! “They decided to do shared parenting,” a source told The Ashley. “Corey’s intention was never to rip the girls away from Leah. He fought for full custody because that was what was needed to happen at the time to protect the girls. He never wanted to cut Leah out of their lives, or replace the girls’ mother or anything else that fans were saying about him. People only know a piece of how bad things had gotten.”
Of course, fans will see everything play out on the small screen! “MTV filmed Leah and Corey explaining to their families what happened inside the courtroom,” a source said. “That footage will probably help fans understand why Corey did what he did in regards to custody.”
Following the custody win, Leah turned to Twitter to express her excitement. “There is nothing like being a single mom of 3,” she wrote. “Just me, my girls, and our cats lol. I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
