The Teen Mom star has given birth to her second addition to the family. We have learned that Amber Portwood and her boyfriend Andrew Glennon have welcomed a baby boy!
The reality TV celeb delivered the child very early today, and he is healthy and strong.
As fans of Teen Mom know, she was already the mother of a 9-year-old daughter named Leah Leann Shirley, but Andrew is a first-time father.
Her daughter is fathered by Amber’s ex, Gary Shirley.
But being the mother of a boy is a first time for Portwood as well and apparently, it is exactly what the couple was hoping for.
The happy parents named their newborn son James.
He was born on May 8 at 1:39 A.M. and weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces.
The star was originally due on May 13 but baby James decided to come a little earlier.
On May 7, Amber took to social media to announce that ‘he’s coming.’
As you may remember, Portwood confirmed the second pregnancy back in November and made it very clear that it was planned and not an accident.
She admitted at the time that she purposefully stopped taking birth control so she could offer her new boyfriend a child.
‘We were not surprised, no,’ she said on her show.
‘Were you not using birth control?’ the producers asked to which she answered by shaking her head no.
When asked about becoming a first-time dad, Andrew replied excitedly: ‘On the inside, I am slightly terrified. At the same time, I have to accept it because I know that it feels so right.’
They found out the gender in February and Amber shared during one of the Teen Mom episodes that Leah was happy to have a brother.
‘She said she wanted a little baby brother,’ Amber stated.
Leah’s stepmother, Gary’s wife Kristina, confirmed this by saying: ‘She has always said… like that was on her Christmas list, she wanted a baby brother.’
Congratulations Amber and Andrew!
