It was father-and-daughters bonding time for Teen Mom 2's Corey Simms on Friday.
The certified water-distribution operator was photographed having an emotional reunion with Aleeah, his 16-month-old daughter with estranged wife Leah Messer, who filed for divorce last week.
Indeed, a source close to Simms tells Us Weekly exclusively that the MTV dad is spending the weekend with Aleeah and her twin sister Aliannah. The adorable little girls were "giggling and happy" to be with their father after three weeks apart, says the insider. "They were playing around on the floor with their daddy!"
As Simms stays behind in the Clay, West Virginia trailer he once shared with the twins and his wife, Messer has already moved with the girls to her mother Dawn's house in Elkview. The couple wed just six months ago.
(The source explains that Simms and Messer, 19, brokered his weekend time with the girls through their lawyers.)
A Simms pal tells Us that "he's heartbroken" by the turn of events. Adds a Leah confidante: "She feels awful and really wanted the marriage to work."
"They are not in a good place right now," another pal says. "But her friends are hoping they find a way to make it work."
