'Teen Mom' Leah Messer Wants to Be the Next Kate Gosselin

29

They say once you've had twins, the likelihood that it will happen again increases significantly. If In Touch is to be believed, then Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer, already a twin mama once, has done it again. The 19-year-old, who is pregnant, is said to be expecting twins. The plan is to parlay her giant little family into her own show, much like Kate Gosselin. Because that worked out so well.

First, of course, let's consider the source. In Touch is notoriously wrong in reporting on things and Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans tweeted that it was all a lie. Still, we can't deny that it was In Touch that first broke the news of Leah's pregnancy in the first place. So is she expecting twins? Stranger things have happened.

The fact is, she probably shouldn't have one baby at her age, let alone four. She is a good mom in many ways, but she is simply too young. There is so much living that happens between 19 and 25, and while her friends are doing it, she isn't.

She may not regret it now, but when she is 40 and looking back on her life, she will wish she had enjoyed her youth unencumbered by grown-up responsibilities. So why does she keep on piling them on?

Of all the teen moms on the show, Leah has had the roughest go. She has a little one (Aliannah) who has some kind of slow development, though the underlying cause is unclear and she has spent the first months of her life constantly in and out of doctor's offices. She is only 19 and she is dealing with things many people twice her age have never dealt with.

Now she wants to add twins to that? And if her reasoning is really because she wants to be like Kate Gosselin, she may want to reconsider. Gosselin's life hasn't exactly worked out as she expected. Sure, she has had some major surprises and became famous. But her fame is waning, interest is at an all-time low, her show was canceled, and now she is a single mom to eight kids.

Is that what Leah wants for her life, too? Quite frankly, 19 isn't the best age to be making huge decisions like this. I understand many people become moms at 19 and it happens and they can be good moms, but it isn't the ideal. And four kids is just too many. If her reasoning seemed sound, then I might not judge and just chalk it up to someone who has different goals for their life than I. But that isn't the case here.

She seems to want to use her uterus to make her a star and that just seems like a recipe for disaster.

Do you think the rumors are true?
