On the Teen Mom 2 episode ‘Fake Out’, while Jo’s fiancée Vee asks if he’s willing to consider getting 50/50 custody of his son Isaac, Leah runs errands with her daughters Ali, Aleeah Grace, and Addie. In a parking lot, Leah calls her friend Kylie to give her an update on her daughter Ali, who’s been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy (MD). “They say she’s getting stronger,” Leah reports. She adds, “Actually, they want to get Gracie tested for MD as well.”
When Kylie asks what that involves, Leah says, “They’ll do blood work, I guess. And then they’ll know more.” Leah says she thought Aleeah Gracie had been tested before “but it must have been for some other kind of research.” Keep in mind: Aleeah is Leah’s child with Corey Tyler Simms, like Ali. “We carry the gene,” says Leah. Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9pm on MTV.
