LEAH Messer’s BFF Kayla Rausch left her life in West Virginia behind to start anew and went from sidekick to mom.
Fans have long wondered what happened to the reality TV gal pal.
Unlike Leah, 29, her friend Kayla keeps a low-profile and stays out of the spotlight.
That hasn’t stopped fans from wondering what she’s up to though.
In 2014, Teen Mom 2 fans watched as the mom of three bid farewell 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 dive into Ali’s health struggles.
A lot has changed since then.
Leah and Jeremy got divorced, Ali and twin sister Aleeah are pre-teens.
As for Kayla, she’s a mom and her husband is working as a police officer.

Here’s what Kayla has been up to since she appeared on Teen Mom 2 with her bestie Leah.
Like Leah, Kayla is mom to more than one child.
She has a son who is nearly six and another who was born in February.
Kayla celebrated her eldest son’s birthday with a sweet post, sharing a photo of the boy and another child holding balloons.
She captioned the tribute: “Happy 6th birthday to the two meanest boys 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, whom she regularly poses for photos with on Instagram.
The couple recently posed together happily as they celebrated his birthday.
She captioned the smiling photo: “Happy 37th.”
When she’s not posing with her husband, she proudly shows him off.
In March, she shared a photo of him in uniform holding their son.
Life isn’t all that’s changed for Kayla – her look has evolved quite a bit.
When she appeared on Teen Mom 2, Leah’s pal had yellow blond hair that reached her shoulders.
She had a monroe piercing as well as a piercing in her nose.
On occasion, she wore her hair in a large pouf on top of her head.
These days, her hair is nearly white, cut in an edgy style that’s short on one side – almost pixie-like – and shorter than shoulder length on the other.
