Two days ahead of schedule, Amber Portwood has been released from jail! Teen Mom fans have been anticipating her release ever since it became a known fact that Amber would be getting out of slammer after one year instead of the original five she was sentenced to, and now, it’s all happening. And we couldn’t be prouder.

In Touch reports that Amber got released from Rockville Correctional Facility in Indiana today, November 4, and Amber’s brother, Shawn, even confirmed her release via Twitter, saying:


And Shawn wasn’t the only one picking Amber up. Hollywood Life reports that the MTV camera crew was there to greet her, too! Perhaps this will mean another Teen Mom special like last year’s Amber Behind Bars is in the works? Can’t wait.

But just because she’s no longer a prisoner doesn’t mean Amber’s off the hook entirely. In Touch also said that Amber will be reporting to a parole officer now that she’s released, who will give her random drug tests and make sure that she doesn’t violate any of the stipulations she must follow.

Amber’s ex, Gary Shirley, hasn’t commented on Amber’s release just yet, but no doubt he and their little girl, Leah, will be super excited to see her. Gary’s new girlfriend, though? Yeah, probably not so much.
