According to In Touch, rumors of the impending birth began to circulate after Leah tweeted, “Yes, the time is near… Can’t wait to meet you little Miss Calvert!” on Sunday during the super bowl halftime show.
Sure enough, Leah gave birth to a healthy baby girl hours later. A source close to the family confirmed, “Leah gave birth in the early hours of this morning (Feb. 4) to a beautiful baby girl. Mother and baby are happy and healthy. Leah went into labor late last night, and the baby was born this morning.”
Leah and Jeremy wed in the spring of 2012. Their new baby girl will join 3-year-old twin sisters, Aliannah and Aleeah Simms from Leah’s previous marriage to Corey Simms.
Despite the fact Leah is only 20-years-old and has two other children, she said she was ready for baby number three. There is a reason God gave the baby to us now,” she told US Weekly in November 2012. “I’m not going to say it wasn’t planned, because we intended to try — eventually. It just happened a little sooner than we expected. Our parents are thrilled. It’ll be Jeremy’s parents’ first grandchild, so they’re really excited.”
“The path I chose isn’t right for everyone, but it’s right for me,” she explained. “I am financially stable — we just bought our first home — and I’m emotionally fit to have another child. I’m 100 percent prepared — way more than I was at 16,” when she gave birth to her twins.
