LEAH Messer’s best friend, Kayla Rausch, left her life in West Virginia behind to start anew and went from partner to mom.
Fans have long wondered what happened to the reality TV friend.
Unlike Leah, 29, her friend Kayla keeps a low profile and stays out of the spotlight.
However, that hasn’t stopped fans from wondering what he’s up to.
In 2014, Teen Mom 2 fans watched as the mother of three said goodbye to Kayla as she prepared to move from West Virginia to Las Vegas.
She was packing up her life to be with her husband, who was in the military at the time.
At the time, Leah was still married to Jeremy Calvert and was just beginning to immerse herself in Ali’s health issues.
A lot has changed since then.
Leah and Jeremy are divorced, Ali and her twin sister Aleeah are pre-teens.
As for Kayla, she is a mom and her husband works as a police officer.
This is what Kayla has been up to since she appeared on Teen Mom 2 with her best friend Leah.
Like Leah, Kayla is the mother of more than one child.
He has a son who is almost six years old and another who was born in February.
Kayla celebrated her oldest son’s birthday with a sweet post, sharing a photo of the boy and another boy holding balloons.
She captioned the tribute: “Happy 6th birthday to the two baddest kids, can’t believe my baby is almost 6.”
In February, she posted a photo of her newborn son, captioning it: “Forrest Grey. My Valentine baby.”
Kayla is still married to her husband, with whom she regularly poses for photos on Instagram.
The couple recently posed happily while celebrating her birthday.
She captioned the smiling photo: “Happy 37th.”
When she’s not posing with her husband, she shows it off with pride.
In March, he shared a photo of himself in uniform holding his son.
Life is not all that has changed for Kayla: her appearance has evolved quite a bit.
When she appeared in Teen Mom 2, Leah’s friend had yellow blonde hair that reached her shoulders.
He had a monroe piercing and a nose piercing.
At times, she wore her hair in a large pouf on top of her head.
These days, her hair is nearly white, cut in a sassy style that’s short on one side, almost like a pixie, and shorter than shoulder length on the other.
