Time to check in on Amber Portwood, y'all! This troubled Teen Mom is currently in jail after opting out of her drug court program, and word on the street is that she's thriving in the clink. Not only is Amber clean and sober, she's enrolled in the choir, is writing a book about her life, and she might get out early for good behavior.
We're thrilled that Amber's making the most out of her incarceration, but she must miss her daughter like crazy. As far as we know, Little Leah hasn't been able to see Amber in jail, but the good news? They've been talking on the phone!
"Just spoke with Amber on the phone," Amber's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, tweeted on January 16. "All is well she's doing @leah_leann got to say hi to her mommy that's all that matters."
We can't imagine how hard it must be for Leah to be away from her mommy, but hopefully frequent phone conversations will keep their bond stronger than ever. With any luck, Amber will be up for parole in two-and-a-half years — which means she'll be around for plenty of Leah's childhood milestones!
