Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is opening up about overcoming her daughter Aliannah's health issues, which have been a focal point of the show's second season.
On last week's episode, doctors finally told her that Ali is not suffering from any mental abnormalities, even though one of her optic nerves is indeed smaller.
"I was relieved," says Leah Messer, who has watched Aliannah, 2, develop 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."
While 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."
So while Aleeah took her first steps nearly a year ago, Leah's just as proud of Aliannah's scooting around on her knees and making progress with her physical therapist.
"She's doing great," gushes Leah.
Doctors have yet to rule out a genetic disorder for Ali, but still, Leah's thinking about expanding her family - not with ex-husband Corey Simms, but with her new BF.
In fact, some rumors say that Leah and boyfriend Jeremy Calvert, who are heating up fast, are expecting. We don't believe that for a second, but they are serious.
"Jeremy and I do talk about getting engaged," she reveals.
