Amber Portwood’s Brother on Leah’s Jail Visit: “It Will Be a Reminder For Amber That She Needs to Get Healthy”
Good news, ladies with babies! Teen Mom's Amber Portwood can finally look forward to a jailhouse visit from her daughter, Leah. This epic mother-daughter reunion will undoubtedly be wonderful for Amber's spirits, and her brother, Shawn, thinks it might even motivate her to get out of jail sooner.
"It is great news. I am happy to hear that Amber will be able to see Leah," Shawn tells RadarOnline. "It is something that they both need right now in their lives."
It's certainly important that Baby Leah has a connection to her mommy, especially since Amber's jail has such a quality child visiting area — complete with a playground for Amber and Leah to hang out on!
"Seeing Leah will be a reminder for Amber that she needs to get healthy and get out of there as quick as she can," Shawn says. "It would mean the world to Leah, I am sure. I am just happy that she will not have to ask to see 'mommy' anymore."
Up until now, Leah has been told that her mom was working on a "twinkie truck" and filming a movie, but it looks like Amber's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, is finally ready to real talk with his little gal.
"It is just too bad that she won't be able to stay the night with her mom like she really wants to do," Sean says, adding, "I think it is the right decision because it is the only moral decision that Gary can make in this situation. The only other decision he could make is to not let Leah see her mother, and unfortunately that is the wrong decision."
It's good to know that Amber's family are finally rallying around her!
