Teen Mom Gets Her Baby Back!

Although her two-year-old daughter Leah was removed from her custody last week, Teen Mom's Amber Portwood has cleaned up her home and was reunited with her daughter on Monday.

A source claims:

“Amber hired someone to clean up her apartment recently and even went out over the weekend to buy a proper baby bed for Leah. She was trying to get everything up to par at home so that Child Protective Services would deem it a suitable place for Leah and she’d get her back; and it looks like it worked.

Originally Amber was supposed to have a monitored visit today with Leah, but when CPS saw the change in her apartment they decided it met Leah’s needs.

CPS will continue to monitor Amber a few times a week and check in with her to make sure it’s going well, but as of now, Leah is back in her care."

But her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, was not happy with the decision.

“He really loves Leah and was so excited to have her when the court placed her in his care,” added the source.

Let's just hope Amber can live up to her responsibilities!

    Obviously it meant a lot to her to have her baby back :) Kudos to Amber for doing what needed to be done. I hope this was a wake up call for her and that from here on out she's left alone to raise her baby in privacy instead of being all over the tabloids. Hopefully her hometown will ease off of her too. I couldn't imagine living in a small town and being talked about 24/7 by my nosy neighbors.

    This is ridiculous. I can not believe she did not need any kind of therapy or even a parenting class before getting her daughter back.
    She did not do any of the work herself, so what makes them think she will keep it that clean?
    She got off easy.

    She hired someone to clean up her apartment? Is she really that lazy that she cant clean up her own mess? One day of a clean house shouldn't erase her mental instability and anger issues. Gary should go to court and fight for full or at least 50 - 50 custody so Leah is in his care at least half the time.

    haha how airbrushed is her face!



  5. 5

    So cleaning up her apartment and buying a proper baby crib have also solved her anger issues, eh?



  6. 6

    Did MTV pay to clean up her home and buy the baby's bed?



  7. 7

    That little girl is so cute! I hope her parents gets their acts together asap.



  8. 8

    She looks so gross - like a British chav. She looks like she's pushing 40.



  9. 9

    Ok good. We'll wait until she pummels her to death instead.



  10. 10

    Sometimes you don't know what you have till it's taken away from you…. hopefully this was one of those wake up calls for her, though i find it disturbing she just now bought a proper baby bed for her…



  11. 11

    How fucking messy does your house have to be that you have to hire a cleaning crew?



  12. 12

    What a mess.



  13. 13

    I understand she had to improve because of her daughter, but I thought she was in trouble for hitting her baby's father, Gary. I didn't know hiring someone to clean up your house could get you out of domestic violence charges. lol

    This doesn't change the fact she has anger issues and acts out violently. She has even hit him in front of Leah. That poor baby is going to need therapy in the future.

    I'm glad her baby is back with her. It's the best place for her to be. Now I just hope that Amber straightens up and realizes what is more important and doesn't fuck up again. I'm glad they will continue to check up on her and keep her in line.



  15. 15

    This makes me sad. I hope that gorgeous little girl doesn't have to go through any more bs. I don't think either parent deserves to have her, to be honest.



  16. 16

    so sad for the poor baby



  17. 17

    That girl is a walking billboard ad for Norplant…I can't believe CPS gave her poor child back!!! Fast forward 15 years, and see the results of THAT disastrous decision!!!!!



  18. 18

    That baby didn't even have a bed? Are you kidding me?

    Give her back to her daddy. Geez…



  19. 19

    Re: MediaStudentSaysWhat – yeah, i thought the same thing. I'm sure mom had one though……….



  20. 20

    Don't worry Gary, she'll be back in your incapable hands soon enough.

    Re: MJadedRe: MJaded – Compared to millions of mothers out there who raise kids every day, Amber Portwood is a decent mother. Honestly I can't even count the number of homes I've been in where it's like "you let your kid live here" and it's waayyy worse than Amber's messy house.



  22. 22

    FAT TRASH UGLY ORANGE WHORE. WHAT A SHAME THAT BABY IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE A PAWN TO BE MOVED AROUND. SO MUCH FOR STABILITY. HOW DIRTY CAN AN APARTMENT GET WITH ONE PERSON LIVING IN IT THAT SHE HAD TO HIRE SOMEONE TO CLEAN IT? THAT POOR BABY COULD HAVE HAD A TOTALLY DEVOTED LOVING FAMILY BUT HER SELFISH ASS DECIDED TO FUCK HER UP AND KEEP HER. LOVE INDEED.



  23. 23

    Neither of them deserve custody of that little girl and they shouldn't get as much press as they do. It's bad that they do and you should feel bad for feeding the fire, Perez.

    That's all I will say about this.



  24. 24

    the one that needs to clean up there act is MTV .. I used to be a fan until trash like 16 and pregnant and teen mom aired. Wtf is this shit.. Wanna see some teen moms? Look out your window. They're everywhere!



  25. 25

    It's too soon! So for 1 visit she has her act cleaned up, Amber needed therapy and parenting classes before she should have gotten Leah back. I bet in a month it will be back to how it was! She couldn't even do the cleaning herself, she HIRED someone! She doesn't work and didn't have a child to care for and she still couldn't find the time to do the cleaning!



  26. 26

    Wow, this is horrid. Im glad she realized she needed to clean up; but come on. She HIRED someone to come do it. Amber didnt do it. Show me Amber on her hands and knees scrubing floors and doing laundry and going to therapy THEN i will think she deserves that child. She will never learn because unfortunatly, the people that are supposed to watch out for our children or children that are sick or in bad homes, CPS, does nothing besides either give kids back to undeserving parents or throw them in foster care and never look back at the childs welfare. So sad. It gives the people that actually want better for children look bad.



  27. 27

    Amber needs alot of help. she was mentally a child when she got pregnant and still acts like a kid. shes has issues that are excessive. She needs therapy, i hate it when she would tell Leah to stop crying. A baby crys when they NEED something. if she wasnt meeting her childs expectations, what does she expect. you can just leave a baby in the crib and expect them not to cry. she needs to give her child attention. Amber just wants to sit in her living room and cry about "how bad shes got it". its time to grow up and for a reality check!



  28. 28

    the kids department are a little to quick to steal kids from the mothers



  29. 29

    Her and Gary are the ones who should off adopted there daughter for a better life. What kind of life does she have when she has to watch her mum beat up her dad and live in a mice infected apartment (they found mice droppings when they went to inspect the house). Catelynn and Tyler should of been the ones to keep there daughter because they seem well mature.

    Re: adamzlover – It meant so much that she hired someone to clean up the pig pen that she calls home? And to purchase an actual bed for her baby? Wow I could get my own TV show… I will call it "The clean house, and the baby bed" Now all I need is a teen mom to make famous so people can glorify the idea of being a mom in high school, oh wait… how many shows do we have about unfit mothers? Take all the kids away, for the love of god anyone that writes in to a tv show to try to be aired because they are too loose with their legs doesn't deserve to be on television, its people like you guys that make these girls think its okay to do the stupid shit that they do..



  31. 31

    keep ALL these trashy girls off MTV. why should someone be famous for keeping their legs open more than a mcdonalds stays open?? especially this fatso.



  32. 32

    This so called "woman" should not be allowed to have her child back. If anyone watched the show…..she beat her boyfriend on quite a few occasions, with her daughter in the home, and he just takes it from her, she is a complete SLOB, she does not WORK has welfare and pays someone to come clean her house?!?!?! She needs to get up off her LAZY ass, clean her house, she doesn't work so shes not doing anything else, GET HER GED, go to anger/parenting counceling and then MAYBE cps should think about giving the baby back……she is totally an unfit mother………I feel bad for the baby to be living in that kind of environment……….makes me sick……my animals are treated better than her child.
