Gary revealed via Twitter that his baby has officially been born, and slightly ahead of schedule. "She's here!," the proud dad tweeted around midnight on April 30th after revealing that they were on their way to the hospital. Kristina was due to deliver sometime in May.
Gary also shared this adorable note that Leah wrote for her little sister in preparation for her arrival. "Leah's been praying everyday that the baby would come and that Kristina would be okay!," Gary also tweeted shortly before the baby's birth.

And it seems like Amber might be getting the big baby news on social media like the rest of us despite Gary trying to get a hold of her. Gary tweeted at her last night, saying "Yo call me, tried calling you but went to voicemail." We hope the MTV camera crew is around to capture Amber's reaction!
We saw Gary and Kristina learning of her pregnancy a few episodes back on Teen Mom OG, and neither looked too happy with the news. However, Gary has since clarified that while the baby was a surprise, they're thrilled to be parents again. Gary even purchased a new home for his family, which hopefully is in move-in condition now that the baby's here.
This is the second child for both Gary, who's dad to six-year-old Leah, and Kristina, who has a daughter, Karly, from her previous marriage. The baby's name hasn't been revealed yet but stay tuned for any updates!
