TEEN Mom star Corey Simms enjoys a New Years’ Eve celebration with his wife Miranda and three daughters in a rare photo of the family shared on Instagram.
Corey has not publicly shared photos of Miranda on Instagram since their wedding in 2013.
The Teen Mom 2 star’s father, Jeff Simms, posted the picture to his own platform yesterday, a selfie with Corey, Miranda, and granddaughters Remi, Ali, and Aleeah.
Jeff captioned the selfie: “New Year’s Eve festivities with the Simms crew! 😀🎊” while the family sat smiling during their holiday game-night.
Corey shares his twin daughters Ali and Aleeah, 11, with his first ex-wife and Teen Mom frontrunner Leah Messer.
The father of three shares his youngest daughter, Remi, 5, with his wife of seven years, Miranda.
The ex-couple successfully co-parents their children, although the situation has not always operated smoothly.
Leah, 28, struggled with substance abuse following her pregnancy with her youngest daughter Adalyn, who she shares with another ex, Jeremy Calvert.
The young mom was addicted to prescription painkillers after a botched spinal tap during her c-section with Addy, 7.
Corey and Miranda accused Leah of drug use, but she denied the allegations in order to keep custody of her children.
Documented on Teen Mom, Leah admitted: “I have to pretend I’m okay. If I slip up, even a little, it could give the twins’ dad ammunition he could use to get custody of them.”
The MTV star unfortunately lost custody of her twins for a short time in 2015, though she and Corey now share 50/50.
Last month, Leah finally spoke to her ex about her battle with abuse, and further accused him and his new wife of not providing a “safe place” for her during her years under the influence.
In a scene that debuted in mid-December, Leah confronted Corey as they met to drop off their children.
While the kids remained in the car, the television personalities spoke about how they’re in a much more positive position now that Leah has learned to control her drug problem.
Corey mentioned that they haven’t had “a disagreement in years” despite the fact that their relationship “used to not be good.”
Leah then mentioned her addiction, sharing to her baby daddy that she “hadn’t really ever talked to [him] about it.”
“You didn’t know after I had Addy that they put me on multiple different painkillers,” she shared.
Corey replied: “I didn’t know all of the details. All I know is that you have progressed.”
Leah then criticized how her ex handled the situation, saying: “I look back at that moment and I wish each of us, all of us including your wife, could have communicated it a little different, provided that safe place for me as an addict.”
Corey admitted that although he and Miranda were initially “supportive,” their emotions eventually “turned to anger.”
We could’ve communicated better. Our communication now is where it should be. I dreaded the drop-offs for years, but now it’s pretty simple,” he shared.
In the episode, Leah also spoke about her drug issue to Addy’s father, Jeremy.
The reality star divulged her worry to her ex, saying: “At the end of the day, you and Corey are both the dads to my daughters and our kids could potentially have that same struggle down the road.”
