Mother of twins and new “Teen Mom 2” star Leah Simms realizes just how much her life has changed for the better as she watches her earlier struggles play out on the MTV docuseries.
Leah recently viewed the series premiere with the father of her children and now-husband Corey. The pair sat through tough scenes concerning their earlier break-up and the affair Leah had that led to it. One short-but-teary dinner scene amid the drama proved particularly meaningful for the young couple.
“We got emotional watching the scene because you could just see how much we loved each other” Leah explained in an interview with Us Weekly.
As for the fling Leah had with her ex-boyfriend and the troubles it caused, the mother of Aleeah and Aliannah considers it a life lesson rather than a reason for regret.
"If I hadn't made that mistake, I wouldn't have learned from it."
