TEEN Mom star Corey Simms appeared in a rare photo with his daughter Aleeah after fans dubbed the preteen “Leah Messer’s clone”.
The proud dad shares Aleeah and her twin sister Ali with his ex and has another daughter, Remi, with his wife Miranda.
The father-daughter duo were snapped together during Aleeah’s equestrian competition over the weekend.
Corey’s dad Jeff captured the moment as he snapped a photo of his granddaughter posing with her ribbons for third place.
She smiled for the camera as she donned her riding gear while her father stood behind her admiring the 12-year-old’s performance.
Aleeah wore her long blonde locks in a French braid and red lipstick for the occasion.
He also posted a picture of Aleeah sitting on her horse, as well as a snap posing next to her sister Ali, who came to cheer on their twin.
Her grandfather captioned the post: “Gracie did well at a horse show this weekend! Ali was seated this time but was in the process of supporting her sister. #alignrace 🐴👧🏼👧🏻”
Corey, 32, – who mainly stays out of the limelight – is rarely seen in photos with his children.
His last appearance was last January when his father posted a picture of the family celebrating New Year’s Eve together.

The selfie featured Corey, his twins, his wife Miranda and their five-year-old daughter Remi.
The group sat around the table and played a board game while Jeff took the shot.
He added the caption: “New Year’s Eve celebrations with the Simms crew! 😀🎊” while everyone but Corey turned their attention to the camera.
LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER
Meanwhile, Leah, 29, can often be seen in photos with her girls, as many fans have pointed out her striking resemblance to their daughter Aleeah.
Last month, social media users dubbed the soon-to-be teenager her mother’s “clone” after the two appeared together in a TikTok video.
Leah shared the video with her eldest daughters as well as boyfriend Jaylan Mobley, all of whom are matched in red tops.
Fans couldn’t get over how much the mother-daughter couple looked alike in the comments.
Referring to the girl by her nickname, one fan gushed, “Oh my god Gracie’s your clone.”
Another wrote: “Leah really said COPY AND PASTE.”
A third chimed in: “Oh my god I thought your daughter was you.”
Another commented, “Ok but why does Aleeah look more like you than you do?”
This was hardly the first time Leah and Aleeah had been compared, as fans gushed over their similarities just weeks before.
“literally a clone”
After a photo was shared of Aleeah and Ali having dinner at Applebee’s with their mom, similar comments abounded regarding their resemblance.
One commenter said, “Aleeah is literally a clone of Leah lol,” while another said, “Like having dinner with Leah and Corey.”
Several fans wrote, “Beautiful girls.”
Another added: “They are my darlings. They grew up to be such lovely little young ladies,” a heart emoji added.
Leah is also a mother to daughter Adalynn, nine, with her ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.
