VIDEO Leah Calvert and Corey Simms’ daughter Ali takes her first steps

Leah Messer's daughter Ali

Anyone who has watched Teen Mom 2 knows Leah Calvert and Corey Simms’ daughter Aliannah has had to deal with all sorts of medical issues and tests — quite the load for a 2-year-old! (Not to mention her family!) Fortunately, after a couple of years of tender loving care, Ali has remained strong and is now doing better than ever. Just a couple of months after her twin sister Aleeah began walking, Ali is taking her first steps!

Leah, who recently married Jeremy Calvert, posted the video above of the happy event last night and has already received tons of congratulatory messages from Teen Mom 2 fans and  her family.

Ali’s daddy Corey exclaimed, “I am so proud of my Ali girl! I love her so much!” Corey’s dad and Ali’s grandfather, Jeff Simms, was also thrilled. “I am sitting here crying after watching a video of Aliannah taking some steps. I cannot find words to describe how I feel. #prayersanswered,” he tweeted. He followed that up later by writing, “Aliannah Hope Simms has worked so hard to walk, she never quit trying. The Lord answered many prayers tonight, please continue 2 pray 4 her!”

Leah’s Teen Mom 2 co-star Chelsea Houska tweeted her thoughts as well. “YAY girl! I’m sooooo happy! that is amazing 🙂 xoxxx”

The video showed Ali taking several steps to her mother and then falling into her lap. It was only a few seconds long, but the progress Ali has made is absolutely priceless.

And speaking of Ali’s progress and priceless, here she is being a little goofy posing for a family portrait with mom and her sister Aleeah:

As fans of the show witnessed, Leah and Corey once feared that baby Ali might never walk, so this day comes as a great relief. It’s been a hard road getting here but Ali is progressing so well, and she’s due to be caught up with Aleeah in no time! Leah tweeted, “Ali is tickled pink and now she knows she can do it so she wants to continue to walk. Being a mom is the best thing god has made me! #HAPPY”

Ali and Aleeah are going to running together before you know it! Now that’s a happy ending.

    Has it ever been said/did they ever determine what is wrong with Ali’s development? So glad she can walk though!

  • Katie

    Awww that’s awesome!

  • online

    This is so wonderful!

    She looks crazy in that bottom picture.

  • Jill

    This is great!!!! But why does it say she began walking a couple months after her twin sister Aleeah? Aleeah has been walking since a year old, the girls will be 3 in December? It’s like a 1-1 1/2 years after her sister lol.

    Either way it’s amazing!!!

  • Lindsay

    I was wondering that as well.What is her offical diagnosis?I thin mentioned skeletal dysplasia which is a form of dwarfism and can also cause club feet and bowed legs.I’d be interested to see what she has and how she continues to progress.

  • Lizzy

  • Stephie

  • mee

    Seriously why does Leah look like she is possessed by a demon in this picture….!?!?

  • Ashley

    Is there a link to the video?

  • coco

    So glad that Ali is walking. Such a blessing. But did Aleeah real also just begin walking? That is surprising since they are 2 and I don’t remember her having any developmental problems.

  • Maryanne

    Good on her,but poor baby’s foot looks so painful.She is walking with a club foot and turned in legs and i wonder if she will have that disabillity for life or if they were consider surgery if the braces don’t work.Poor thing.That foot looks so uncomfortable and she looks like she is struggling.



  • Sweet Venom

    It’s great that she can walk. She was such a cute little baby (still is) and I always hoped she would walk one day.

    And I agree with everyone…Leah looks insane in the bottom photo.

  • helloisitme

    I don’t think they are sure of what the reasons are behind ali’s slower development, as of now its just theories. This is wonderful. I’m very happy for the family.

  • Debbie

    well done Ali. All her family must be so proud of her. Leah and Corey have done a brilliant job with the twins despite there relationship problems and Jeremy seems to be good Step dad to the girls. Hope with the rest of there families love and support she will continue to get stronger. X

  • RReed

    Aww, so happy for her! I have twin girls too. I thank the lord that everything was okay with them and that they never had any serious problems. Brighter future for Alianna! 🙂

  • Robin

    It’s so sad that these girls had to come into the world this way, with these parents and all the drama. They deserve so much better.
