In a recent pic shared to her Instagram Stories, Leah decided to use a filter and it garnered a lot of feedback from fans and critics alike.

On Christmas Eve, Leah shared a pic of herself in the car, sporting her festive red and white snowflake sweater, as she gave a kissy face to the camera.

In the pic, Leah’s cheeks looked extra rosy and her skin was perfectly smooth, with just the right amount of color and sparkle in all the right places.

“These filters are getting out of control,” expressed another one of Leah’s critics. “They don’t even look like actual humans anymore.”

Leah looked so unrecognizable to one Teen Mom 2 viewer that they weren’t even sure it was actually her.

“I had to check multiple times to make sure this even was Leah for sure?,” they wrote.

Even without using fillers, Leah has experienced quite the glow up over the years since she first appeared on Teen Mom 2.

Back in the spring, Leah’s fans pointed out how much she has changed since her days as a young mom struggling with drug addiction.

These days, Leah and her new man Jaylan are preparing for their debut on Teen Mom: Family Reunion alongside cast members, past and present, from the Teen Mom franchise.

Teen Mom: Family Reunion premieres on Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 8/7c on MTV followed by the premiere of Teen Mom: Girls’ Night In.
