We’re only two days in but already, 2015 has been insanely busy for the Teen Mom crew. Catelynn Lowell had her baby on New Year’s Day and Maci Bookout announced her second pregnancy just days prior, and now, it’s confirmed that Gary Shirley, aka Amber Portwood‘s ex, has another baby on the way!
Although there were reports about Gary’s new baby swirling since October, he finally confirmed the baby news on New Year’s Day with this photo, tweeting “I get to welcome in the New Year with @leah_leann sister! Half way there yay!!!!.”
So, who's the lucky lady who got knocked up by Gary Shirley? That would be Kristina Anderson, Gary's longterm girlfriend. The baby girl will join Gary's daughter, Leah, and Kristina's little girl, Karly. Catelynn had a girl and Maci is also expecting a daughter, so 2015 will be filled with a whole lot of pink!
And even though a few other Teen Mom baby daddies would not be ready to handle a second child (ahem, Adam Lind), we gotta say that Gary totally seems up for the job. He’s had full custody of Leah since Amber went to jail in 2012, and six-year-old Leah is totally a daddy’s girl.
Amber, meanwhile, hasn’t yet commented on the pregnancy news, but remember during the Ask the Moms special when she simply said that Gary and Kristina “deserve each other?” We think that the pregnancy was what she was alluding to. Well, this will make for some interesting TV…
