Sources close to Teen Mom star Amber Portwood have revealed that she and baby daddy Gary Shirley appeared in an Indiana court room yesterday afternoon for an emergency child placement hearing regarding their daughter, Leah, and the two-year-old has now been deemed a ward of the state!
The Department of Child Services will now be monitoring Portwood for six months, until she can once again file for custody, as well as assessing Leah's living situation will Shirley.
So unfortunate for that poor child.
Again, we hope that this terrible situation will help de-glamorize the reality show a bit for its younger viewers. These two clearly aren't emotionally mature enough to handle the responsibility of being a parent.
