Teen Mom 3’s Matt McCann engaged to Lekota Koch
          

Matt McCann engaged

Matt McCann, the ex-boyfriend of Teen Mom 3‘s Alex Sekella and father to Arabella, revealed this past weekend that he’s engaged to long-time girlfriend Lekota Koch. They have been dating since August 2012.

Lekota added on Facebook, “I can’t wait to change my last name to McCann.”

According to Matt, the low-key couple plans to have a courthouse ceremony before saving up for a bigger wedding. (‎À la Kailyn Lowry!) Matt said he was also able to save on an engagement ring because Lekota thinks fancy rings “are gross.”

Anti-bridezilla Lekota said the only detail she cares about is who she’s marrying, not how, when or why.

“My dream wedding is me walking down the aisle to Matt, I don’t care about anything else,” she wrote on Ask.

It’s worth mentioning that the episodes of Teen Mom 3 currently airing were filmed more than one year ago, so it’s unfair to judge current-Matt based on the show’s representation. Like any reality show, there is also a good bit of editing involved: Matt tweeted last night that producers made it sound like he was getting out of rehab, even though he was actually just getting out of jail. (Not sure why he wanted to clear that up, but that’s his prerogative!)

Editing aside, it has to be difficult to relive some of the more challenging moments in life while also getting judged by millions of viewers. Matt has been a bit defensive to comments directed at him on Twitter and Ask, but ended the last night’s tweeting spree on a positive note.

In the time since these episodes of Teen Mom 3 were filmed, Matt’s definitely had some rough moments — specifically when he fell off a cliff and landed in the ICU. However, he’s now sober, going to school and looking for a job.

Unlike what we see on TV, the guy also seems to have a real sense of humor! In response to a question about how he proposed, Matt wrote on Ask that he “threw a ring at her and in a demonic voice I said, MARRY ME.”

Fortunately for Matt and those in his life, Lekota seems to be a positive influence. The 18-year-old recent high-school graduate is currently attending community college and plans to become a forensic psychologist. Although she doesn’t have the best relationship with Alex, she admitted Alex “is a good mom and she takes care of her side.”

Even though both Matt and Lekota have had their respectful moments when talking about Alex on social media, there is resentment all the way around — Alex even got Matt’s parental rights terminated. In fact, Alex claims Lekota has never met her future step-daughter.

For the sake of everyone involved, hopefully they can all come to some understanding so that Matt can play a productive role in his daughter’s life.

      Long time girlfriend? They have been dating ONE year!!! Good grief. Does Starcasm even think as they’re writing an article?

      • Kieffah’s Hoodie

        A year of dating has been the traditional length of time before couples got engaged for a long time.

        • LaLa84

          I would consider a long time girlfriend or boyfriend to be someone you have dated for several years, not just one. Maybe that’s why divorce rates are so high?! People don’t take the time to get to actually know each other past the point where to new-ness wears off of a budding relationship.

          • steph

            Amen! and she is only 18? Why the rush ??

            • TrueDat

              You know what they say… there’s no love like the love that two crackheads share.

              • sarah

                Except their on heroin. Not crack.

                • TrueDat

                  “They’re”… and yes heroin is much safer than crack.

          • ktbebe

            My parents only dated for one year before they got engaged, then a year after that they got married, (they were 20) and they’ve been married for over 22 years…

      • starcasmnet

        “Longtime” might be an overstatement in most cases, but it seemed fitting enough for a story about about two teenagers.

        • LaLa84

          I see your point… but just throwing in the fact that they’re teenagers says enough about why they shouldn’t be getting married.

      • CEE

        lol i completely agree. one year is nothing i am with my boyfriend for three and living with him for two. i knew nothing about him the first year…and we were friends for THREE years before that (not best friends see each other everyday but we went to same school and stuff) once i moved in…man the learning process started ALLLLL over again. Now on the third year i am beginning to see how we function as a couple and work together what we take care of as far as household stuff…i love him more than ever but if anything i can’t see myself getting married anytime soon. not cause i dont love the guy i want to finish college and him to finish as well and see how we continue to grow as a couple..im glad the young couple is happy and i hope it works out. as for people calling her fat? are you foreal? how much do you weigh? she seems like a great weight.

      I wish them the best! Never liked Alex, anyway.

      • Jen

        Same here. Also, Matt stated on Twitter yesterday or the day before that Alex has been pregnant before (it wasn’t his) and that Alex had lied to him a couple times claiming she was pregnant before

        • amberc88

          i could totally see her doing that! I have been behind with teen mom 3 but watched the first part lastnight, and omg, she was suchhhhh a witch to him! like i understand trusting him with his past, but she didnt even give him a chance and was 24/7 down his throat, she even would yell at her mom and sister about it. I by no means think he needs a father of the year award, but she was just as crazy!

    • DeeDeDee

      I think it’s safe to say that engagement amongst these people is to throw off any rumors that they’re splitting or even to stake claim on somebody who has a lack of faithfulness. Oh hell, even to make them seem “all grown up.” Majority of them that get “engaged” stay together, never getting married, and spending the entire length of their engagement breaking up and getting back together until they break up for good and move on to the next. Either that or the engagement lasts 5 days and they rush into marriage… and we obviously know where that gets them.

    • Jen

      Glad to hear this, it seems like Matt is turning his life around and wants the best for his daughter, while Alex is still living in the past and using her daughter as a bargaining tool.

      • Jean

        Because rushing off to marry someone in a courthouse wedding when you’re under 20 and been together less than a year is responsible.

        • :))))))))

          Considering the guy was in jail last year, yeaah

          • Dani

            Courtland and Jenelle got married and are in out of jail. They sure are real responsible -.-

            • :))))))))

              The difference is that J&C we’re on drugs when they got married. I gotta give Matt props, 2 years ago he was high as a kite filming for 16&preggo, and now he’s engaged to someone who doesn’t have a meth face, way to go dude

              • Dani

                It is highly unlikely that he is truly sober. He just found himself a naive, 18 year old girl that thinks she is able to fix him.

    • Jean

      Mr. And Mrs. Trash. Pregnant within 6 months, divorced within 2 years.

      • Anita Bidet

        If she isnt pregnant already; she is pretty fat we wouldnt notice right away.

        • :))))))))

          Euh fat she isn’t ! It’s stupid girls like you that creates complex in young women with your uncalled stupid remarks. And btw wasn’t going to mention it but Alex is like 10x fatter than this chick

          • Dani

            Neither are even close to fat.

          • Dani

            Neither are even close to fat.

          • Ay

            Alex had a kid, What’s Lekotas excuse? Shes chunky as hell and doesnt wash her fair. Gross. Plus she writes on Matts twitter so she probably wrote that tweet. Just saying.

            • ktbebe

              If you say those pictures of her is chunky then you’re either 80 pounds or 300. Do you realize by calling those pictures of her fat how that makes girls who read this feel? Do you realize the tears you’ve caused?

    • LaDeeDa

      Just to throw it out there, they’ve been dating longer than a year and they’ve both sober. Hating on them doesn’t make your life any less pathetic. If they are in love, let them be happy and in love. It’s not affecting your life, so who cares?

    • er

      I actually feel so bad for this girl. Not even because of Matt’s past issues (though that could work out badly too)… she is now going to be stuck dealing with Alex even more… if she’s a demanding nag of a baby mama I can only imagine how much harder she will be on anybody Alex dates. I really want to smack her on every episode of TM3 so far. It’s a sad time when her mom is telling her to stop bitching.

    • Zephyr

      Oh, this will last…

      • Anita Bidet

        Said nobody ever.

    • Kelly

      I don’t know. My brother is a recovering addict that jumped from one toxic relationship to another. He met his wife and after a year of dating they’re married (for almost a year now), sober, and expecting. I think Matt and Lekota are probably too young, but I hope everything works out for him. Alex just seems like a raging bitch.

    • Dani

      I hate this trend of MARRIED people planning weddings. It is tacky and greedy.

    • Ally

      Im not saying that they are right or wrong for each other but why not have a long engagement? Plan the wedding they truly want vs getting married THEN having a wedding? I started dating my hubby at 16, got engaged VERY quickly after only 2 months of dating, but did not get married till we were 21 on our 5 year anniversary and had the wedding I always pictured. Im not saying my plan is for everyone but you gotta realize especially if you’re young you don’t need to rush anything I’ve heard too many girls who rush into getting married regretting not waiting(either it did not work out or wishing they waited to have that dream wedding).

      By them rushing getting married suddenly does anyone else see a pregnancy announcement soon coming?

      Best of luck to them regardless!

      • m

        tell me about it.. i started dating my fiance at 15, he was 16.. TEN years later we’re engaged and planning our wedding. what’s the rush if it’s right? i will never understand these teenagers rushing to the altar.

        • Ally

          Me either, I agree 100%

      • TrueDat

        They can’t plan their dream wedding because neither are employed. The show was filmed over a year ago and he was “looking for a job” and in this article it still says he is “looking for a job”… oh please, all he is looking for is another hit and a free ride.

        • Anita Bidet

          He lets Lekota defend him on twitter. Hes definitely cheating on her, Alex posted screenshots of him harrassing her under several fake Facebook accounts. BLECHota denies it was him but it clearly is. She won’t admit hes on drugs again and cheating.

    • Murphy

      marriage isn’t about love, dummies

    • Anita Bidet

      Ew her hair is so gross, she needs to wash it.

      • Ay

        Then she’d have to spend her money on shampoo instead of heroin and we all know which she wants more!

    • Mkmb782

      Does anybody take marriage seriously anymore?! I’ve been with my boyfriend for 7 years (this month) and I’m still not ready to get married. My brother met a girl last June and they got married in May after being on and off the whole relationship. Two weeks after the wedding she was already asking for a divorce. It was her third marriage.

      You still don’t even know each other after a year. A year is still the honeymoon phase when you are the best you and when things are great. And at 18 you don’t know who you are, much less who someone else is. And with his track record why wouldn’t she give it time to see how things go.

      Thanks a lot for contributing to the divorce rate!

    • ameliaBedelia76

      Resentment on Matt’s part for Alex getting his rights taken away?? This dude has not been sober in years and has not taken care of his daughter. Hello….LOSER!!! Why do these chicks have sex with these loser dudes?? WHY???? Time to start teaching our daughters some self-respect. The only decent dude on the show is Joey & his is an angry guy. So that isnt saying much

    • Nicky

      I don’t understand why nobody likes Alex. She was my favourite mom on teen mom 3, as well as my favourite out of the moms from teen mom and teen mom 2. I would yell all the time too if I was dealing with that loser. The other girls were horrible. Mackenzie was extremely immature and so pathetic, letting josh treat her horribly while she was worshipping the ground he walked on. I don’t know why, he seemed like a loser with nothing going for him. Katie was so whiny and annoying. She was being passive aggressive starting fights then blaming Joey. She should have been happy to have a boyfriend that was working so hard for his family and appreciate him. It was obvious she wouldn’t be happy no matter what he did. Briana was just as dumb as Mackenzie. Couldn’t even deal with the baby without her mom and sister around and said the dumbest things. Alex actually was mature even if she did have an anger problem. She was the the only one who had common sense and a good head on her shoulders. She was the only one truly putting her baby first. I really wish teen mom 3 wasn’t canceled.

      • Nicky

        The only reason I even watched teen mom 3 was to watch Alex and brianas sister, everyone else was just painful to watch.
