On this season of Teen Mom 2, fans have gotten the opportunity to see Leah Messer blossom into a seriously awesome mama of three. The reality star has been going to college while raising her brood, one of whom suffers from Titin Muscular Dystrophy. Yet the 25-year-old isn’t alone. We’ve gotten to see quite a few episodes featuring Leah’s sister, Victoria, 22, who often gives her big sis advice when it comes to baby daddy drama, Ali’s condition, and school. Get to know more about her “best friend” below!
She has a daughter as well
Victoria may be an aunt to Leah’s three little girls, but she also has one of her own! Cami Rae Lynn was born on Nov. 16, 2016. Back in August of the same year, however, Leah revealed that Victoria had gone into premature labor at 27 weeks and asked fans to pray for the mother-daughter duo. In an Instagram post at the time, she wrote, “Baby Cami is trying to be stubborn like her parents, but she has no choice but to waittttt! It’s wayyy to early for her arrival. Thank you alllll so much.”
Victoria married Brian Jones in April 2015, but in June 2017, she officially called it quits with her hubby. Leah and her daughters Ali, Aleeah, and Adalynn, were the maid of honor and mini bridesmaids at the wedding, but barely 24 months after saying ‘I do,” their relationship fizzled. Luckily, the two have expressed their desire to keep the split amicable for the sake of their daughter. “I just want to say thanks to the most beautiful woman in the world, Victoria Jones. She has been there for me when no one else wasn’t [sic],” Brian wrote on his Facebook page. “She give [sic] me hope even when I didn’t have it. She show [sic] me love even when I didn’t but the most best thing of them all, she give [sic] me the most beautiful daughter in the world. When I see her for the first time, I knew my family was complete. I will always love you Victoria and Cami.”
She reportedly suffered a miscarriage prior to Cami’s birth
The now former couple announced in September 2015 they were expecting a baby boy, but it’s believed they suffered a miscarriage. With the birth of Cami coming a little over a year after Victoria’s first pregnancy announcement, the two didn’t waste any time trying again.
She’s Leah’s “best friend”
Cue the “awws!” Despite being younger, Victoria tends to be Leah’s voice of reason on the show. The siblings — who also have a brother, Isaac — certainly have a special bond. In a recent Instagram post, Leah captioned the sweet snap, “Little sister, I love you so!” BRB, crying.
