There is a new man in Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer’s life, and sources say that things are already “getting serious” after just three months of dating. Messer is dating Jason Jordan, a man 13 years older than she is, and Us Weekly has released pics of the couple enjoying a Florida vacation together.
The 26-year-old met her new 39-year-old boyfriend through a friend who happens to be Jordan’s cousin, and the two connected because of common interests.
“Even though he’s older, they have a lot in common,” reveals an insider. “They share the same faith and have gone to church together. They love hiking, cooking and are both very family oriented. He’s very attentive.”

The source also says that Jordan lives near Messer in a West Virginia suburb, and he is a well-established medical sales professional who is the father of a 2-year-old.
This is the first time Messer has dated anyone since her split from ex-husband Jeremy Calvert, who she was with for over three years. Earlier this year she considered getting back together with Calvert once again, and that is playing out right now on the current season of Teen Mom 2.
Messer and Calvert share a 5-year-old daughter named Adalynn, and she also has 8-year-old twin daughters – Ali and Aleeah – from her first marriage to Corey Simms.
A source says that Jordan “built their first date” around things that Messer enjoys, and he is “super thoughtful.” The insider adds that Jordan leaves flowers for Messer’s daughters and notes for her on her car. Things are definitely moving forward, but they are also “enjoying each other in the moment.”
Messer was nervous about introducing Jordan to her daughters since he is the first man in her life since Calvert, but they did end up meeting, and her girls “absolutely love him.”
The reality star has already had two failed marriages and a few failed flings, so it makes sense that she is keeping her love life on the down-low and making sure her relationship with Jordan is the real thing before sharing everything with her millions of followers on social media.
The couple did appear to finally confirm the relationship in the comments section of one of Messer’s recent Instagram posts that was a pic of her daughters enjoying Fourth of July fireworks.
Leah Messer is currently filming season nine of Teen Mom 2, but a source at Ashley’s Reality Roundup says that she has told the crew that Jordan will not be on the show because she wants to keep things private.
New episodes of Teen Mom 2 air Monday nights on MTV.
