Was Gary Shirley Granted Full Custody of Baby Leah?

Teen Mom’s most famous baby daddy, Gary Shirley, created a stir last December when he tweeted, "Today amongst all days is the single greatest day for the rest of my life:) ... My daughter officially mine. More than before. Love you so much @leah_leann so were hitting up some Disney in Florida to celebrate. :)"

Amber Portwood had previously told E! News that she and Gary had joint custody of Leah, but it appears the situation changed around the end of 2011. Before tweeting about his celebration at Disney World, Gary wrote (and then erased) "As of Today, I've been granted full custody of Leah with Amber in agreement. Will only accept the best for my daughter."

Amber — who is currently serving a 5-year jail sentence for drug possession and parole violations — follows in the footsteps of fellow Teen Mom, Jenelle Evans, who signed over custody of her son Jace to his grandmother, Barbara.

According to OK! Magazine, we'll likely witness the emotional moment when Amber signs over her parental rights in the Teen Mom series finale. Sources quote her as saying, "I screwed up my own life enough … why screw up someone else's worse?"

Do you think Gary deserves full custody of Leah?
