She already has her hands full with her twin daughters, but now that Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is pregnant with her third child, things around her house are bound to get much busier come this winter.
Twenty-year-old Leah announced her happy baby news to US Weekly by saying:
Jeremy and I are excited to be adding a new addition to our family. Being a teen mom was difficult, but I'm older and in a different place now -- married to Jeremy and excited for our family to grow.

She also added that her twin girls are looking forward to having a new sibling. She said:
Ali and Aleeah can't wait to meet their new brother or sister.We feel incredibly blessed and look forward to this next chapter in our lives.
Oh boy -- can anyone else already hear the criticism and insults that are bound to come her way for making the decision to have another baby? Because my gut tells me that there are quite a few people out there who won't be able to resist picking her apart and calling her irresponsible. You know, because she's not even old enough to order a beer yet.
(But doesn't she deserve the benefit of the doubt?)
I know that 20 years old seems pretty young to most of us, especially as far as having three children goes, but regardless of her age, Leah is obviously very excited about her pregnancy -- just like any new mom is when she gets a positive test result. Instead of bashing her and saying she needs to grow up a little more before adding another baby into the mix, we should simply congratulate her and be happy for her, just like we would if any other TV star announced she had a bun in the oven. (Don't burst her bubble, people.)
Do you think it's too soon for Leah to have another baby?
