It’s hard to believe that Amber Portwood is only 25 because she has lived through so much: teen pregnancy and motherhood, drug addiction, prison, reality television, dysfunctional relationships – and Gary Shirley! With all of the worst portions of her life reflected back to her via reality TV and social media, Amber is focused on moving forward.
Amber took a break from reality TV to spend time in prison. Since being released 2-years-ago she has been working hard to get her life together – including losing weight. As a bonus Amber found love (ish?) resulting in a bizarre engagement to much older man, Matt Baier, whom she calls “the love of my life.” Matt was recently exposed for having 7 secret kids, which the Teen Mom OG star vehemently denies.
“He doesn’t have seven kids but he does have more than what people know because we decided to keep it private,” maintains Amber. “It’s nobody’s business.” Except you’re on the TeeVee there makin’ it our biznits.

Teen Mom OG dad Gary Shirley is officially a father of two. Gary and his girl friend, Kristina Anderson, welcomed a baby girl over the weekend. Emilee Grace was born late Saturday night and weighed in at 7 pounds, 11.4 ounces.
“Spending time with my lovely family and the newest of them all,” gushed Gary. “I love my beautiful daughter Emilee Grace Shirley. She is so perfect in every way. I love the wonderful woman who gave her to me and put her body through many changes including an emergency c-section.”
Gary continued, “Kristina you are more beautiful to me now than ever! God has a path for us all and I’m so glad he put you in my life! Leah and I are better to have you! You truly are my Mrs. Wonderful. I know you tell me all the time how blessed you are to have me, but it truly is backwards. I’m blessed to have you.”
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Kim Zolciak and Shannon Beador, love to show off their adorable kid/family photos on social media. It is tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest photos this week.
Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos shared the picture above of herself, Jonathan, and Alianna, adding, “Christos Anesti! Happy Greek Easter!”
There are more pictures of Catelynn, Farrah, and Amber at the Movie Awards below, but first, let’s talk more about Farrah’s plans to be a plastic surgeon. It’s been three weeks since the Teen Mom star shocked us with this news, and we’ve been dying for her to gift us with more nonsensical words about her plans ever since. That day has finally come.
In the clip, Amber meets up with Dr. Drew while promoting her book, Never Too Late. When Dr. Drew asked Amber how often Gary allows her to see Leah, she shared, “Since she started school, it’s been weird because he’s acting weird. He won’t let me have her on the days she is in school, which is Monday through Friday. Something’s going to happen because I will be getting her.”
