Leah Messer of Teen Mom OG has changed a lot in the last 11 years she’s been on tv, and fans praised her for overcoming adversity.

The 28-year-old mom of three shared a beautiful, animated pic of herself over the weekend, looking healthy and vibrant.

She sat in a car wearing a white tank top, a nameplate necklace, with her wavy hair worn down and blew kisses for the camera.

Leah captioned her pic, “Today could have lasted forever ??✨ Huge shout out to @mostmadepicnics_events for adding their charm to this stunning venue! & Thank you so much @thejburkeproject for capturing so many amazing moments with my girls! Xx”

Leah struggled with drug addiction for years after a botched spinal tap during a C-section in 2013 with her daughter, Addie. She documented her struggles in her book, Hope, Grace & Faith.

Fans on Reddit took time to show their appreciation for Leah overcoming her past drug addiction, raising her three girls, and breaking old habits when it comes to relationships.

Some credited Leah with ‘coming back from so much’

Some of Leah’s fans commented on a Reddit thread that was captioned: “Leah living her best life with the girlses! I honestly feel like she has had one of the beer glow ups of all the Teen Moms.”

“She is radiant, beautiful, and come back from so much. Kudos ?”

They said, “she has had the best glow up! when i was googling pics of her today i saw when she was at her lowest and she looks so much happier now!! it’s like two completely different ppl”

One supporter talks daughters playing a role in her improvement

“Joint custody was the best thing for her. I really believe she’s be dead or still strung out if she returned primary. She couldn’t handle the stress of 3 kids with no partner and one with a rare debilitating disease and there’s no shame on that when your children’s father is like Corey”

Leah shares twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, with ex-husband Corey Simms and daughter, Addie, with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.

Not everyone’s Reddit comments were supportive

One supporter of Leah’s defended her when others accused her of plastic surgery and hiring help to run her social media accounts.

The hater wrote, “I do not buy what Leah is selling. She got fillers and hired someone to run her social media. I’m not that gullible.”

Leah had an advocate, though, who came to her defense and claimed Leah had made smarter choices than other teen moms.

Their reply was, “Which is still a “glow up” imo. If that’s the case, she’s being smarter than the rest of the cast and their social media presence lol”
