For months now, we've been hearing rumors that Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer are dating.
At first, those rumors seemed to be inspired by nothing other than the fact that Kail and Leah enjoy taking vacations together.
In recent weeks, however, Messer and Lowry both dropped some pretty strong hints on social media.
Are they really dating -- or just enjoying the attention?
Kail took to her Coffee Convos podcast this week to clear the air -- and you might be surprised by what she had to say.
Take a look:
Leah and Kailyn have been close friends for years, but their relationship has become even tighter in recent months.
Lowry and Messer have taken multiple vacations together recently, sometimes with their kids in tow -- and sometimes not.
In fact, these days it seems that Leah and Kail rarely travel without each other.
More Than Friends?
On vacay, these two seem to seriously enjoy each other's company. Does their joy and the frequency of their trips mean there's something going on here beyond friendship?
Bound to Happen
Yes, it's unfortunate -- but inevitable -- that fans would begin to speculate on the nature of Messer and Lowry's relationship.
Fuel to the Fire
To be fair, neither party has done much to squash the rumors -- in fact, they've actively encouraged them.
