When you think about all that Gary Shirley has been through in his life — including domestic battery at the hands of Teen Mom Amber Portwood, mother of his daughter, Leah, and burned nipples — and then you try and guess how old he is, you might say something like —37? 42? But you would be dead wrong! Gary has packed all that activity into only 26 years, having been born on November 17, 1986. The Indiana native has shown remarkable devotion to Amber, through many screaming fights and occasional trips to the slammer. He has also endured being accused of involvement with the babysitter while Amber is serving a five-year prison sentence. Hello? Gary says he doesn't have a babysitter, and what if he did? He's hanging in there for Leah, his adorable daughter, born in November 2008, and for Amber, too. Soldier on, dude, soldier on — we're behind you all the way!
