“Teen Mom” fans showed their support for MTV star Leah Messer after she posted an Instagram reel about overcoming trauma and addiction on Thursday, March 9.
The Instagram video began with recent photos of Messer wearing a blue and white blouse, high-waisted jeans, and white boots. In a few pictures, Messer wore a blue blazer on top of the blouse.
The second half of the video included throwback photos from Messer’s early days on the “Teen Mom” franchise, illustrating the struggles she had to endure to get where she is today. The photo montage included references to some of the MTV star’s most challenging moments, including a photo of her crying while holding divorce papers and a screenshot of an old news headline in which fans accused the star of looking “painfully thin.”
The song “Comeback Kid” by The Band Perry played in the background of the March 9 reel.
The lyrics, “Cause I’m a comeback, I’m a comeback kid, Don’t know why bad things happened, but they did, I don’t think I deserve the hurt I get, but I’m made for it, It’s not the end, no, it’s not the end,” played as fans watched Messer’s evolution.
Messer included an emotional caption alongside the post, detailing the obstacles she’s had to overcome since appearing on “16 and Pregnant” over a decade ago.
“We will always have mountains to climb,” she wrote, ” “Teen Mom, Divorcee, Special Needs Mama, Single Mama, Body Dysmorphia/Low self-esteem, Poverty, Trauma, Addiction.”
“No one should have to do it alone.❤️,” she added.
