Is Leah Messer pregnant with her fourth child?
That rumor surfaced this week, courtesy of a scene on Monday night's Teen Mom 2 and a live stream quote from her third child, Adalynn.
Predictably, Twitter is just about losing its mind.
With Jenelle Evans and Chelsea Houska both having given birth in January, and Kailyn Lowry pregnant, was Messer feeling left out?!
We kid, but if Leah were expecting right now, all four Teen Mom 2 stars would've been pregnant at some point in 2017, which is just ...
Not sure what superlative to use there, even.
In any case, the rumor got started during a Facebook live video (see above) in which Leah’s daughter Addie seemingly spills the beans.
She whispers to her, “tell them ’bout the baby in your tummy,” and then Addie says it again, though the first time is more clearly audible.
Leah didn't react at all to Addie’s comments, but the 24-year-old began to struggle with the camera, and deleted the Facebook video.
Then there was this on Teen Mom 2 ...
Sonogram photos were seen on Leah’s refrigerator, naturally causing fans to wonder if she could possibly be pregnant with her fourth.
Regarding those ultrasound images above, the MTV scene in question was filmed at the time when Leah’s sister Victoria was pregnant.
She was possibly living with Leah as well, according to The Ashley's Reality Roundup, so there’s a great chance that the pics are hers.
Even if the sonograms aren't of Victoria’s baby, they could be old ones of Leah's (it's possible), as the baby is clearly pretty well developed.
As for Addie's video, Leah eventually addressed the speculation caused by her daughter with Jeremy Calvert, telling fans on Twitter:
“I am definitely not [pregnant],” Leah wrote.
“I have the IUD.”
"Kids say the craziest things,” Leah wrote one fan, adding:
“Side note: you have to be sexually active to get pregnant.”
Ouch! An amusing way to shoot down the rumor for sure.
As for the obvious question: Is Leah telling the truth?
It's a fair one to ask, given how her co-stars Jenelle and Kailyn recently lied or dodged questions pertaining to their own third pregnancies.
According to The Ashley, however, Leah isn't pregnant.
“She has never mentioned anything to the crew, and there have been no indications at all that she’s expecting,” one source reports.
“She’s really, really thin right now, too," the source adds.
"There is absolutely not tummy whatsoever.”
Recent Leah Messer weight loss photos have surprised fans, even sparking (false) rumors that she has a drug problem once again.
She doesn't have a drug problem, let's just repeat that again. But if anything, she's looking less pregnant these days than ever before.
Another source says that Leah is flat-out denying it when asked to her face, as well as with comments on her private Facebook (above).
“She’s not pregnant,” another source says.
Probably for the best. We can now put this rumor to rest and go back to debating whether these are inappropriately disturbing photos of her kids.
