It’s safe to say she knows what she’s talking about. In advance of the premiere of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer offered advice to the moms on the other MTV reality TV show.

Specifically, Leah, 27, brought up the importance of keeping things civil with the other parent involved in the Young and Pregnant moms’ lives. “When dealing with baby daddies,” she said, “Communication is key. Both parents deserve to be in the child’s life.” See what else she had to say in the video above.
