In addition, she believes Aleeah is posing provocatively. "She's sticking her stomach out and tilting her head, while Ali looks like a shy little girl," she observes. "There will likely be sibling rivalry down the line."

Messer nearly lost her girls late last year. After a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Corey Simms, the MTV reality star was granted partial parenting responsibilities.
