Leah Messer is getting married! The ‘Teen Mom 2’ star’s boyfriend, Jaylan Mobley, popped the question in August with a romantic beach proposal.
In a September interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jaylan opened up about the days leading up to the proposal and revealed he personally called Leah’s ex to break the news.
Here’s what you need to know:
Jaylan told Entertainment Tonight that he called Cory Simms, with whom Leah shares daughters Aleeah ”Gracie” and Aliannah “Allii,” and Jeremy Calvert, with whom Leah shares her eldest daughter Adalynn, for their blessings before the proposal to get.
“Me and Corey went, we went golfing, and we actually had a discussion about it,” he told the outlet. “And he was good with that.”
“I also had conversations with Jeremy the whole time and after, and he was always like, ‘Hey man, I’m just glad you’re the one that’s in my daughter’s life than becoming this stepdad,'” he continued away. “So for me that’s just another thing too, when I came into their lives I thought I wanted to make sure I had a relationship with their dads and that was amazing too. And they were all for it. They also gave me a lot of wisdom from things they learned and that’s just how it all worked.”
Jaylan has never shied away from being a part of Leah’s children’s lives. On Father’s Day, the 26-year-old shared photos of him with Leah’s kids on Instagram, along with a message that he was a “bonus dad.”
“Not being biologically related to a child doesn’t make you any less of a parent,” he wrote in the post. “Being a real parent is not in the DNA. It is in love, caring and in the heart.”
Leah isn’t the only one with new bling! Jaylan told Entertainment Weekly that he gave promise rings to all three of Leah’s daughters.
“She had no idea up until that point that I was planning anything for the girls,” he told the publication. “I told her I wanted to do something picnic-style for her and it was a surprise to all of them that I’m making the promise not only to their mother but to them as well.”
On August 26, Leah shared photos of Jaylan giving the girls her rings on Instagram. The mother-of-three shared a sweet caption alongside the post.
“When I dreamed of this moment, it was exactly what I envisioned,” she wrote. “A slow, steady, unconditional love, not just for me, but for my three daughters, who I cherish most in life. Thank you for everything you do for us. [Jaylan Mobley] We love you to the end of the world. It’s just US 4L♾💒🍾🥂.”
She continued: “Love is patient, love is kind; It does not envy or boast; it’s not arrogant or rude. It does not stand on its own path; it is not unforgiving; it delights in the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always endures. LOVE NEVER FAILS. 💍🥂❤️✨.”
Fans commented on the post to share their thoughts on the gesture.
“Jay giving rings to the girls here comes the tears🥺🥺🥺🥺,” one fan commented.
“Absolutely adorable!!!! Happy birthday 🙏🏻💗💕,” wrote another fan.
“So happy for you ALL ❤️❤️,” added a third user.
