Gary Shirley of MTV’s Teen Mom will soon welcome his second child. As he announced last year, his girlfriend, Kristina Anderson, is currently expecting a baby girl.
On Twitter on January 25, Shirley tweeted of his daughter’s impending birth.
“Getting closer and closer til I have a new lil girl!”
Gary Shirley first revealed news of his girlfriend’s pregnancy in September 2014. However, at the time, he didn’t reveal when she was due.
As the Inquisitr reported earlier this month, Gary Shirley revealed his child’s gender on Twitter. Along with his tweet, the reality star also shared a photo of Anderson’s baby bump.

As Shirley plans for the birth of his second child, his ex-girlfriend, Amber Portwood, is enjoying the early stages of a new relationship.
Last week, Portwood gushed over her man on Twitter.
“[Matt] one if the most amazing and loving men I have ever met I’m blessed to have you by my side through these hard times..love you.”
As for Shirley and Portwood’s relationship, it was strained as of last year. After reading claims made by Portwood in her book, Never Too Late, Shirley took to Facebook, via Radar Online, where he denied cheating on Portwood when she was behind bars.
“I told her about my girl 5 days after I officially started dating her. I told her in front of my girl friend over the phone cause I didn’t wanna lie! Plz be aware that most of what she has said is false! Amber unfortunately has to put a spin on things to make her the victim plus it helps her dog me a lil!”
According to Shirley, Portwood made the allegations in an effort to sell more copies of her book.
“By all means plz continue to lie and sell your book which also lies about me cheating, which I did do 1 time, but was just a kiss. Just so everyone is aware I’m not immature like I once was. I learned a lot of my actions had consequences.”
Despite their issues with one another, Shirley said that, at the time, he was doing his best to make sure Portwood was a big part of their daughter Leah’s life.
“Amber gets phone calls often from Leah after I insist she talk to Amber even when she doesn’t want to! Having both her parents is super important so she don’t feel abandoned.”
Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood will reunite on screen when Teen Mom returns to MTV for season five later this year.
