Leah Messer may be in the midst of a custody nightmare with her ex-husband, Corey Simms, but she still has a man by her side for support.
The Teen Mom 2 star, 23, is going strong with her boyfriend of seven months, T.R. Dues, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
The West Virginia-based personal trainer, 32, and his sons Tyshawn, 8, and Angelo, 4, celebrated Christmas early last weekend by decorating the tree with Messer and her daughters: 5-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah, and 2-year-old Addie.
"They had a great time together," an insider tells Radar.
The MTV star posted a photo from the festivities on her Facebook fan page, but left her beau and his boys out of the shot.
According to The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Dues' sons are now even considered to be "part of the family."
Radar first exposed the romance, which began after Dues started helping Messer work on her fitness in April.
Though Messer and her man are serious, she's been keeping the relationship on the down-low.
On the Teen Mom 2 reunion in October, she vehemently denied having a boyfriend, though ex Simms claimed they actually lived together.
Not only do the couple live together, sources tell Radar they moved into a big new house in Charleston, West Virginia, last August.
As Teen Mom fans know, Messer lost primary custody of her twins to Simms in October— but is fighting to get them back home full-time.
