‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Leah Messer Reveals How She Met Her New Boyfriend Jaylan Mobley & Why She Let Her Daughters Meet Him So Early: “I Think the Love Is Real”

“Eat yer hearts out, Corey Tyler and Jeremy Lynn!”

Leah Messer just became “official” with her new boyfriend, Jaylan Mobley, but the Teen Mom 2 star is already in love.

As The Ashley revealed earlier this week, Leah is now dating Jaylan– a military man with a Masters Degree and no kids of his own. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Leah revealed how she and Jaylan met, when they became official, and why she decided to allow her three daughters to meet him after only a month (despite saying she regretted letting her last boyfriend meet them so early into their relationship).

Leah told ET that she and Jaylan have only been “officially” together for about a month, even though he went to Costa Rica earlier this month with Leah and her family to visit Royer Rodriguez, the third baby daddy (and now fiancé) of Leah’s sister Victoria.

“We officially became exclusive during our trip to Costa Rica, when Jaylan asked me to be his girlfriend over a sunset dinner!” Leah said. “It was perfect! This makes nearly a month, but we are excited to see what the future holds.

“When Jaylan started checking all the boxes and characteristics that I had been looking for in a partner, I won’t even lie, I was taken aback,” she added. “He’s so compassionate, caring, patient, kind, thoughtful, has a great sense of humor, is adventurous, and LOVES kids. I swore he wasn’t real!”

Leah’s romance with Jaylan apparently began when he “slid into her DMs,” as the kiddies said. On their first date, Jaylan wowed Leah with a fancy dinner. (She’s come a long way from microwaved canned raviolis, y’all!) He then took her to a Wiz Khalifa concert. (Judging from his Instagram, it appears that Jaylan is friends with Wiz.)

“We met through a project Jaylan did with ESPN and the Army that was filmed and captured by one of my [production assistants] in September 2020,” Leah said. “In growing my network, I followed Jaylan, and in February of this year, we connected through DMs and he asked me on a date.

“On our first date, he picked me up took me to a lovely dinner at Bricks & Barrels in Charleston, West Virginia, and then we went to the Wiz Khalifa concert at the WV Power Park. It was amazing.”

Leah— who was previously married to Corey Simms and Jeremy Calvert— hinted that she’s already in love with her new beau.

“I think the chemistry is there, I think the love is real, and I’ve honestly never been so excited to see where something like this will go,” she told ET. “I just want to stay present, patient, and see where this will go. Time flies when you’re having the best time of your life. We’re just focused on making more memories.”

Despite only being with Jaylan for a month, Leah admitted that he has already met her three daughters. This is surprising, considering back in May, she told Us Weekly that introducing her last boyfriend– Jason Jordan— to her girls so early on was a “big mistake.”

“The last guy I dated, we dated for at least four months before I even allowed him to come around my kids,” she said of Jason. “That was the biggest mistake, honestly. In my opinion, I just don’t want to confuse them with that. Exposing [a new guy] to my kids’ life is something that I really don’t know that I’m even open to at all.”

“Jaylan and the girls just recently met, and they connected so well that initially it scared me, but I want my girls to see who is making their mama smile,” Leah told ET. “I’m happy they got to meet him and love him…They literally just met, but it’s the playing tag for me and running around the house and recent dinner/movie nights we’ve had.

“At the end of the day, Jaylan is such a great person and I know he’ll be such a positive influence in my daughters’ lives. They love him, and that’s what I needed to know before introducing them all,” she added.

“Corey Tyler would never!”

Leah introduced the world to Jaylan on Friday by posting a photo to Instagram showing him nuzzling on her neck. (She did not, however, identify him in the post.) 

“I’m happy I met Jaylan, and you better believe I want to show off the love and chemistry that we share together. It’s beautiful!” she said.

On Sunday, Jaylan went “Instagram Official” with Leah and posted the same photo to his Instagram account.

Jaylan was with Leah recently while she was filming for the upcoming season of ‘Teen Mom 2,’ so it’s likely we will see him on the show. (The Ashley will find out more info on that.)

  1. Seems like he is looking for fame and she is still in that “brand new relationship” phase where everything about the other person is amazing at first.

  2. She’s gonna be pregnant soon, she might not be very bright but she knows how to trap a man ..

    Bring on the downvotes, i said what i said ?

  3. Go ahead Leah…as long as he treats her well and is good to those girls, I’m here for it. Leah is the one girl in the franchise who hit rock bottom, but doesnt seem to have let it define her and she seems to be pulling herself together. I can’t knock her for trying, and I hope she keeps making positive strides in her life.

  4. Leah always introduces men too early. Her girls shouldn’t even know she is in a relationship until they are ready to consider moving in/ been together for a good amount of time.

    But the fact this guy reached out to her and slide into her DMs, makes me think he’s not as good as he was portrayed to be. He might just really want some fame.

  5. Why is race being brought up? Leah is from a very rural area and her previous husbands are country boys. It’s great to see the diversity and inclusion! I also heard another troll say she was following in the footsteps of the gorilla (Kail) having a diverse family. Get over it people it’s 21

    1. I literally just read and reread the article and every post like 3×, I saw no mention of the race card.

      Where did you see it @CLAY COUNTY?

  6. What the hell is a smart, educated guy doing with Leah? He’ll regret the day he got involved with all the Holler Drama that comes with the Leah clan, kids and two ex husbands. What the hell is he thinking? This Army officer is dating way below is pay grade.

  7. They became ‘official’ on the trip. Reading between the lines, she probably let him give her the D for the first time. They do look good together though, hope this will be a healthy relationship.

      1. Well, to quote TRUE DAT

        “And yes I can see how sometimes I seem like I’m just making making stuff up, but I’m not. I just tend to think that personal/firsthand knowledge is just as important anything you could learn from a book or internet.”

        I also have “first hand knowledge’ of what is like to “throw mad D” and how women respond to receiving said “D”

        Just making an observation.

        stay lit

        1. But you dont know what hes throwing around (if anything) so how can you speculate about their situation?

          Yes, from a person standpoint you can make that observation but you’re not them so you cant speculate what goes on between them.

          1. I was mainly speaking about your choice of wording, I think you can be a little less disgusting. I’ve seen it Nibs.

            And you don’t know his intentions, maybe he genuinely loves Leah and the girls, maybe hes looking for that MTV paycheck to roll in, idk.

            But I hope he’s genuine in his intentions because despite not being brilliant, she and the girls do deserve happiness.

  8. Hopefully, he is a good match for her and the girlses. He sounds great on paper, personally I don’t think that I would have introduced him so soon to my kids. Especially after Jason. Jaylan isn’t Jason so maybe it will work out but honestly it’s way too soon to tell.

  9. Wiz Khalifa’s Artist Sosamann ARRESTED on Human Trafficking CHARGES in LA, BONDS OUT for $100K. believe the Wiz has been arrested on drug charges.

    1. So statistics say, 80% of kids that are molested, are abused by someone they know, a huge percentage are abused by mama’s boyfriend, step fathers, or step brothers, or some dude that everybody calls Uncle, but isn’t. Just saying, a month ain’t long enough.

  10. Tall, dark, handsome and well educated.. Good for her, he seems like a good man. Although with the exception of Robbie, Leah tends to only date good, decent guys. She’s no Jenelle, that’s for sure! I wish them all the best

    1. I agree Cindy but I think you’re forgetting about Jason and his Fatal Attraction tendencies after she broke up with him.

      Corey and Jeremy, I absolutely adore them. They are good fathers.

      1. Corey was always good to her and yes she was young and dumb and cheated but they seemed to have moved past that for the sake of their daughters.

        And Jeremy cheated and that along with the fact he worked alot attributed to the demise of their marriage.

          1. What is your damage, like for real?

            Yes I realize i dont know her, but neither does anyone else on this site!!

            Its doesn’t stop them from speaking their minds, so…why should it stop me??

            If you dont like it…tough toots toot!!! Keep on reading!!!


    1. Yes TM2 ratings are low, but that’s because Chelsea quit and they replaced her with Ashley thinking that more drama would raise the rating.

      So MTV kinda shot their own selves in the foot there.
