8 Things You Didn’t Know About Leah Messer And Jeremy Calvert’s Relationship
Fans of Teen Mom 2 have had a wild ride following the stories of Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer, but out of them, all Leah has had one of the most intense and most intriguing journeys of all. Since 2010 audiences have watched Leah welcome twins with Corey Simms, marry Corey, divorce Corey and then go on to marry Jeremy Calvert, welcome a daughter with him and also get divorced. It was a shock when things fell apart between Leah and Jeremy, and emotional to see Leah go through so much heartbreak. As the two work out co-parenting and Leah once again navigates the life of a single mom, take a look back at 8 things you never knew about Leah and Jeremy’s relationship:
8. The Awkward Connection
Those who have followed Leah’s entire story since her debut on 16 and Pregnant in 2010 know that her life moves very fast. Leah and her first husband Corey only knew each other a month or so before becoming pregnant with their twins, and after her split from Corey fans were astounded by how quickly she seemed to rebound with Jeremy. In fact, the relationship did start as fast as it seemed, as Corey and Leah finalized their divorce in June 2011, and Leah and Jeremy began dating a month later. To make things more awkward, their romance started after Jeremy began messaging Leah on Facebook and their mutual connection on the social platform was none other than Corey! After messaging for a day or two the pair began texting and Jeremy asked her out almost immediately.
7. Moving Quick
After their first date, Jeremy and Leah were exclusive almost immediately and the rest of their relationship kept up the whirlwind pace it started with. Only a few months after they began dating, Jeremy proposed to Leah on Christmas Day 2011 with a 1.5 carat princess cut diamond ring and Leah helped pick out the ring. “She and I had gone window shopping first, and then I had a buddy go with me to buy it,” Jeremy said. The pair wasted no time in planning a wedding and were married on April 4th 2012 at Catlettsburg Wedding Chapel in Kentucky in order to apply for a home loan together. A couple weeks later they celebrated their wedding with a big lavish lakeside ceremony in South Carolina, less than a year after their first date.
