Kailyn Lowry is coming to the defense of her “Teen Mom 2” co-star Leah Messer following Leah losing primary custody of her twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, to her ex-husband Corey Simms and his wife Miranda Patterson.
Kailyn says that Leah is a good mom, and that people shouldn’t be criticizing the “Teen Mom” star.
“I think taking care of yourself as a person and a mother first is always important,” Lowry told Radar Online in an interview. “And if she has to go through some bumps in the road to get into a healthy place, then nobody should knock her for it.”
Kailyn Lowry says that she hasn’t spoken to Leah Messer in recent weeks but did admit that she keeps in touch with Messer’s second ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert. However, Kail says she and Jeremy don’t speak about the drama much.
“I want to stay out of that as much as possible because I feel like it’s such a touchy subject and I don’t want to step on any toes or anything,” she said. “We just talk more of like work and stuff like that and the kids.”
Kailyn also offered her congratulations to Corey Simms and Miranda Patterson just days after they welcomed their daughter, Remi Monroe, who joins her older twin sisters. “I wish them the best and just patience. I never even had twins, but I know that kids take patience. They know that.”
