Teen Mom 3's Matt McCann hasn't always been the most dependable baby daddy in the world, but this wayward hunk is making huge strides in his relationship with his beautiful daughter, Arabella Sekella. Matt hadn't seen Arabella for over a year (despite the fact that her mom, Alexandria Sekella, repeatedly tried to get them together), but that changed on October 16.

This grifter had five hours of face-to-face time with Arabella (aka Bellie), and not only did they bond up a storm, Matt showered her with gifts!

"I had an amazing time tonight," Matt tweeted after his visit with Bellie. "I love my daughter and @LekotaKoch. Everything went well and we both had a good time :) Thank you everyone."

Matt went to court in order to get visitation with Arabella, and he'll be able to see her every Wednesday, as well as every other Saturday. Not only that, Matt will be able to talk on the phone with Bellie on Mondays and Fridays, and if all goes well he could be granted overnight visits in as few as three months.

But why has Matt been absent from his daughter's life for so long? This dude was addicted to hardcore drugs during his kiddo's formative years, which led to a huge rift in his relationship with Alex. However, Matt's been sober for 17 months now, and he's more than ready to step up to the daddy plate.

Meanwhile, Alex has stayed relatively quiet about her ex-boyfriend's visit with Arabella, simply tweeting, "I wonder how long this will take."

Do you think Matt will prove to be a good dad? He definitely has some lost time to make up for, and we can understand Alex's frustration!
