Gary Shirley is best known for appearing on the hit show Teen Mom. He shares one daughter with his ex-girlfriend, Amber Portwood, and it looks like his new girlfriend is expecting a baby.
First appearing on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, Gary and Amber allowed their teenage pregnancy to be chronicled for the show. They quickly became a favorite couple among fans, but as their relationship continued to be chronicled on Teen Mom, things quickly went down-hill. Although Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood seemed like a great couple, they often got into arguments and had a hard time getting along. They eventually split, but Amber continued to spiral out of control. She signed over custody of her daughter, Leah, to Gary, and ended up going to prison.
These days, Amber Portwood is out of prison, and while she is spending more time with her daughter, she does not yet have custody of her little girl. Teen Mom fans have always admired Gary Shirley for stepping up to the parenting plate, and there is no doubt he is a great father. To make things better, he is about to welcome another baby into the world!
Gary hinted that his girlfriend was pregnant back in October, although he didn’t give any clear confirmation. However, as he and his girlfriend welcomed in the New Year, they also decided to share with fans the news that they are expecting, and they even revealed the gender of their bundle of joy!
It seems that 5-year-old Leah will soon have a little sister. It is unclear when Gary Shirley’s girlfriend is due to give birth, but since she knows the gender of the baby already, she may be as far along as four or five months.
Gary is not the only Teen Mom cast member getting ready to have another baby. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra welcomed their daughter into the world on New Year’s Day. Maci Bookout also announced that she is expecting a baby girl this June.
This is the only baby update Gary gave his fans on Twitter. He did, however, wish everyone a Happy New Year.
MTV is set to bring back an all-new season of Teen Mom early this year. At this point, each cast member’s story line will deal with pregnancy in one way or another. While Amber Portwood is not pregnant, her ex-boyfriend is, and he will be featured on the new season.
This is very exciting news for Gary Shirley and his girlfriend!
