On April 6, 2010 MTV fans were first introduced to Leah Messer and Corey Simms on their episode of 16 and Pregnant. Since then, fans have followed them for seven years now and they have had one heck of a story. Leah and Corey are the only parents on Teen Mom 2 who had multiple babies and it has been anything but easy. Along with their daughter Ali’s serious health problems, the pair went on a rollercoaster ride of a relationship before finally calling it quits for good. Since so many have become invested in their story, here are 10 things you never knew (or forgot) about Leah and Corey’s relationship!
10. Getting Together
16 and Pregnant gave viewers a very brief synopsis of each young couple expecting babies, and along with Leah being one of the few expecting twins, she and Corey also had one of the most jaw-dropping stories. The pair met and started dating in 2009 when Leah was 16 and Corey was almost 19. Only one month into their relationship, the two became pregnant — with twins! In their 16 and Pregnant episode Leah introduces him and then says “he drove me home from a party one night, and one thing led to another” before adding that at the point of filming the episode they were still “just trying to get to know one another.” She even admits at the beginning of the episode that Corey was only supposed to be a rebound for her because she had just gotten out of a three-year-long relationship.
