So maybe “Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood has had a change of heart. Portwood is reportedly set to be visited by her baby daddy Gary Shirley and her 3-year-old daughter Leah.
So much for telling baby Leah that mommy was on a movie set. There had been plenty of family members deciding the fate of Leah. Was it safe to see her mom, Amber in a jumpsuit, locked-up in prison?
“Just to clear up confusion I had to find out for my daughter amber and myself if it was best for Leah to go where her mommy is and visit,” Gary Shirley wrote on his Facebook page Sunday evening. “I learned that it is the best thing for Leah and Amber.”
Look, they were going to have to explain why the ‘Teen Mom’ was in jail to their daughter at some point anyway. Why not just get it over with. Amber Portwood is currently serving a 5-year sentence. Amber had complained that Shirley was keeping her daughter away from her.
What drama! Amber claimed to have sent in visitation paperwork, but Gary had to figure it out for himself that lying to their daughter wasn’t in anyone’s best interest. “I’ve sent him visitation papers twice.” claimed Amber Portwood, “I think [Gary’s] trying to protect Leah, too.”
The only question now, is how Leah will take seeing her mommy on what is not quite a movie set!
