For Teen Mom’s Leah Simms, her separation from now-husband Corey was hard enough without reliving the heartbreak on the MTV hit show this week.
The parents of 13-month-old twins Aleeah and Aliannah watched the January 11 premiere episode with family and friends at their West Virginia home.
Like plenty of viewers, they got choked up as they watched themselves on screen.
“We got emotional watching the scene because you could just see how much we loved each other,” Leah Simms, 18, tells the new issue of Us Weekly.
At the time, the pair were reeling from their split, Leah’s subsequent dalliance with ex-boyfriend Robbie and daughter Ali’s unexplained health woes.
And while they still don’t have answers about their little one – “Ali has had MRIs and we’re still going to doctors,” Leah says – the relationship is solid.
The couple, who wed last fall, has no regrets about the past tumult: “If I hadn’t made that mistake, I wouldn’t have learned from it,” she says.
Perhaps there’s hope for Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley yet.
