Teen Mom’s Gary Shirley Opens Up About Life Without Amber Portwood

Teen Mom's lovable baby daddy Gary Shirley is currently playing both dad and mom to baby Leah while Amber Portwood serves a 5-year prison sentence. Amber has been in jail since the summer of 2012, when she opted out of a court-ordered rehab program. Girlfriend's been shacked up at Rockville Correctional Facility ever since, but the good news? She's doing fabulously!

Nonetheless, things are difficult for Gary. Not only is he cooking, cleaning, and raising his 4-year-old daughter, but he's also studying to become a nurse so he can bring home the bacon. In other words, this dude's got a lot on his plate, and we're not just talking about his organic watermelons.

"It's easy being a dad the hard part is being the dad and the mom," Gary told his Twitter fans on March 3.

We hear you, Gary! It's not easy being a single pops, but we think you're doing a heck of a job — even with the "mom stuff." Case in point, Leah's epic wardrobe.

"@leah_leann is rocking the pink Jordan's with her pink dress on her way to church," Gary tweeted on March 3. Aww, Amber would definitely approve.

Do you think Gary's doing a good job raising Leah on his lonesome? Tell us below!
