Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer has revealed that her four-year-old daughter Ali -- battling muscular dystrophy — is defying the odds -- one step at a time!

Just six months after Messer learned her daughter would spend much of her life confined to a wheelchair, the MTV stars says the tot recently began running on her own.

“Ali is running! She’s going so much better than expected,” Messer, who is married to Jeremy Calvert,told Life & Style.

“We don’t now what the future holds, but this is proof that we should never give up hope.”

Leah said she was shocked when Ali -- whom she had with ex-husband Corey Simms – began running.

“She has so much determination. We’re in awe of how she handles adversity.”

Leah is taking the great news one day at a time though, facing the possibility that Ali may eventually still need a wheelchair.

But she believes there is a silver lining to Ali’s challenges.

“Ali’s disability has really brought us closer,” she said about her once-fractured family.

“We’re going to conquer this together.”
