A lot of people think the Teen Mom stars have it made because they have a TV show and they're obviously making some money off of it, although the exact amount is still debated in the media.

The girls were obviously very young when we met them on 16 and Pregnant and a lot of them had help from their parents or were even still living with them at the time.

A lot of time has passed since then and now the Teen Mom stars are out on their own, married and some even have more kids, which means more bills.

In Leah Calvert's case, she has all of the above. Another child, a husband, a mortgage AND something none of the other girls have...a child with special needs. Her 4-year-old daughter Ali suffers from a rare form of muscular dystrophy.

Of course, Leah is doing everything she can to help make her daughter's life easier, but that means huge medical bills, which have made money pretty tight for the family of five.

"It's stressful because insurance doesn't cover the whole cost," she revealed to In Touch Weekly. "One bill alone was $20,000."

Leah's husband has a good job, and she's been branching out with some business ventures of her own, but with three kids (Leah has two and they have one together), the medical bills and a mortgage, they obviously have a lot on their plate.
