Attention to their marriage came from Teen Mom 2.
teen mom 2 followed four teenage mothers and their lives during their first years of motherhood. Leah Messer was with Corey, her former husband and then Jeremy Calvert, and they had their ups and downs in their marriage.
Issues such as frequent separation and seeing ex-boyfriends surfaced. But soon, Leah and Corey got engaged in 2010 and then married in October to start their new life. This was not to last as Leah admitted her infidelity and the couple divorced again in June 2011.
Leah and Corey have been shown to be on different pages when it comes to raising their children and sorting out custody and visitation following their divorce. It wasn’t soon after that Leah started seeing and dating Jeremy Calvert.
Between Jeremy Calvert
Leah started her relationship with Jeremy Calvert in August 2011. But soon she was confused and seemed to wonder who she really wanted. Jeremy later proposed to Leah, and she accepted, which finally ended things, or so it seems.
Both have announced that they are expecting their first child by the end of the year, during the Christmas holidays. But their happiness soon came to a halt when Leah suffered a miscarriage the following month. Seeking to put this affair behind them, Jeremy Calvert married Leah Messer on the 4thand April 2012.
They had their daughter Adalynn Faith on the 4thand February 2013, which was the first sign of hope for happily ever after for the couple. The child was born just over a month early and Leah had to take medication for anxiety issues. She defines her condition and herself as being uncomfortable all along.
Problems again on their marriage
As Jeremy was a pipeline engineer for the United States, his professional nature required him to travel across the country for months or undisclosed periods. This started to be a problem when it came to his family life. He and Leah began to have arguments and disagreements over Jeremy working for such long periods of time and his anxiety and other behavioral health issues.
As Leah had to take care of three children on her own, she felt stressed and anxious about being a single mother. These frequent situations of anxiety and stress forced the courts to order her to take drug tests to prove her condition and also to prove whether she was a drug addict or not.
As mentioned earlier, due to Jeremy being away for months due to the nature of his job and Leah being a single mother behind him taking care of his previous two children and his current newborn, this had a mental impact on her. This assessment soon led to diagnosed anxiety and stress.
The reversal came quickly during their marriage and the couple began to argue over the work-life balance Jeremy was giving his family and child and how much he should give. After Leah’s condition deteriorated and court action between the two, the couple decided to divorce.
Overwhelmed by their big decisions and custody battles as well as ongoing family feuds, the couple decided to go their separate ways when Jeremy himself filed for divorce papers.
Revelations of Hope, Grace and Faith
Leah then wrote her memoir titled Hope, Grace & Faith. The shocking and startling confession she made in her memoir shook her viewers and followers alike.
She claimed she wasn’t done with her former husband when Jeremy started dating her. It wasn’t soon after she found out she was pregnant with his child that her ex-husband decided to give their marriage another chance.
Leah wrote in her book, “I was devastated. Having a baby with Jeremy would be the end of any chance Corey and I had to make things work for our family. I was sad for myself, but mostly I was sad for our daughters.
The Teen Mom 2 star later confessed that she decided to terminate her pregnancy because she was confused. This decision to terminate the pregnancy came from the fact that she did not tarnish her image in front of the public.
Abortion in the form of miscarriage
With his mother’s full support, they planned to show it as a miscarriage to Jeremy and not let him know that she was voluntarily aborting their child. Leah took pills and started having signs of a miscarriage.
The MTV star showed remorse but decided to take this step with full intention and awareness. She admitted that she had ruined her life because of her past decisions, like this one.
Jeremy Calvert’s reaction to the revelation
Jeremy Calvert was interviewed exclusively by The Sun. In the interview, he explained that he learned the truth and that his wife at the time didn’t really have an abortion but decided to have a miscarriage.
“I heard things about abortion after the infidelity scandal and before our divorce. Deep down I never wanted to ask a woman about it. Eventually she told me the truth , and it was heartbreaking to hear.
continue his life
Jeremy Calvert then revealed that he wanted to forget his past and move on with his life. Having no need on the horizon to evoke the past, he is content with co-parenting.
“We are co-parenting now. Needless to evoke painful moments of the past. Despite everything that’s happened in the past, Jeremy revealed of his ex-wife, “She’s grown so much now and I’m proud of the woman she’s become.”
The now estranged couple have been divorced since 2015 but co-parent their daughter.
