See Teen Mom kids all grown up as Maci Bookout's son Bentley turns 13 & Leah Messer's daughter Aleeah 'towers' over her

THE children of Teen Mom have grown up on the television screens of viewers.

From Maci Bookout’s son Bentley turning 13 to Leah Messer’s daughter Aleeah “towering” over her, fans have watched the kids age from babies to pre-teens.


Maci, 30, welcomed her first child, Bentley, on October 27, 2008.

The Teen Mom OG star shares her firstborn with ex Ryan Edwards, 33.

Over the years, MTV fans have watched Bentley grow from a sweet young boy into a thoughtful preteen.

Bentley, who turned 13 last month, has been praised by viewers for encouraging his troubled father to go to therapy with him.

Bentley has pleaded with Ryan to attend therapy with him, which played out on the last season of the reality series.

Viewers watched as the seventh grader refused to see his father until he agreed to go to therapy with him to work on their strained relationship. 

Maci revealed that Bentley's rules still stand as the preteen "isn’t necessarily comfortable" talking to Ryan until they attend therapy together.

She explained that Ryan has had "one or two" phone calls with the counselor adding: "So nothing progressed beyond that."

Ryan has had a strained relationship with his son due to his on-going battle with drug addiction.

More recently, fans applauded the 13-year-old for his maturity as his mother suffers from PTSD.

After Maci sat down with Bentley to discuss her struggles, Bentley assured her that he was in her corner and was supporting her.

In addition to Bentley, Maci is also the mother to daughter Jayde, six, and son Maverick, five, with husband Taylor McKinney.


Leah, 29, welcomed twin daughters Aliannah and Aleeah in 2009 with ex-husband Corey Simms.

Over the years, fans have watched both 11-year-old girls grow into sweet preteens.

Earlier in November, Leah took to Instagram to share a family snap with her three daughters.

The Teen Mom 2 star also shares eight-year-old daughter Adalynn with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.

Fans took to Reddit to note how grown up the twins look, adding that Aleeah towered over her mother.

One fan wrote: "She's so so tall, isn't she! Crazy."

Back in September, fans gushed at a video the MTV star shared on her Instagram Stories of her other daughter Ali.

The adolescent – who was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular distrophy in 2014 – appeared all grown up as she smiled at the camera while perched on the arm of the couch.

The pre-teen donned a brown corteroy jacket and round frames with her brunette locks tied back into french braids.


Amber Portwood, 31, welcomed daughter Leah in 2008 with ex Gary Shirley.

Over the years, MTV fans have watched Amber's strained relationship with her oldest daughter.

Recent episodes of Teen Mom OG have caught the reality star working hard to win over her daughter following years of estrangement.

Leah turned 13 on November 12, while her stepmom Kristina took to Instagram to wish her a happy birthday.

Alongside photos of Leah over the years, Gary's wife wrote: "Happy 13th Birthday, Leah!!!"

Meanwhile, Amber shared an adorable throwback photo of her daughter on Instagram in order to celebrate the special day.

In Amber's "favorite picture" of Leah, the teen had a tiara on top of her head as she kissed her mother on the chin. 

The Teen Mom OG star wrote: "Now you are a smart and loving teenager and I'm so lucky to still have you in my life! 

"I will always love you within every part of my soul!"

She concluded: "So much love and positive light to Leah, my big girl now!"

Teen Mom alum Farrah Abraham, 30, welcomed her only child Sophia in 2009.

The 12-year-old's father was Farrah's high school sweetheart Derek Underwood, who tragically passed away while the MTV star was pregnant.

Sophia is regularly featured on Farrah's social media, though critics have been vocal about their belief that the preteen should act her age.

In response to a new glam photoshoot, one person wrote: "I can’t help but think Farrah is encouraging her to act/dress much older than she is. She is 12 years old."

Another added: "Sophia is such a beautiful young lady. I hope she gets far away from the toxicity that is Farrah and her family."

A third wrote: "Well, I was the same when I was 12, but my dad would never let me leave the house with showing skin lol."


Jenelle Evans, 29, welcomed her first son, Jace, in 2009 with ex Andrew Lewis.

The reality star's mother, Barbara, currently has primary physical and legal custody of Jace, 12.

Back in June, a North Carolina court clerk exclusively revealed to The Sun that Jenelle and Barbara’s custody case over Jace had been sealed.

This meant that all filings and upcoming court hearings are not public records and could only be accessed by parties involved in the case. 

The Sun previously reported that the Teen Mom 2 alum had filed for sole custody of her troubled son Jace and in an emergency request back in January. 

This is not the first time Jenelle has slammed her mother on social media. 

The MTV alum has been open about her struggles with the custody arrangement, as she vented about her frustrations in a Twitter post in October.

In addition to Jace, Jenelle is also the mother to six-year-old son Kaiser with ex Nathan Griffith and four-year-old daughter Ensley with husband David Eason.

Catelynn and Tyler, 29, opted for an open adoption and get to see Carly, 12, once a year.

Their most recent reunion was documented on Teen Mom OG, though Carly did not appear onscreen out of respect for her adoptive parents' wishes.

While fans were upset they weren't able to see what Carly looks like today, Tyler said she's "so tall."

He added: "She had her hair braided and it was all back. Yeah, it's just weird."

The pair then became emotional as they gushed over how well-spoken and "grown-up" their firstborn child had become.

Tyler called Carly the "best babysitter" after watching her play with her younger siblings.

The duo then commented on how grown-up their daughter appeared, saying that she looked like a "little adult."

Catelynn and Tyler, who tied the knot in 2015, also share daughters Novalee, six, Vaeda, two, and Rya, one month.


Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry, 29, welcomed her first son, Isaac, in 2010.

MTV fans have watched Isaac grow up over the years, while he recently impressed social media users with his piano skills.

In the clip, Isaac sat at the keyboard in an empty music room as he practiced perfecting his talent on the keys.

Kailyn's oldest son proved his impressive skills as he didn't even look up at his sheet music during the entire rendition.

Isaac captioned the post: "Same song, one month later. ITS THE PROGRESS FOR ME!"

Fans of the reality series took to the comments to praise the preteen, while many couldn't help but point out the striking resemblance to his dad.
