He's so cute! Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood became a mommy again after she gave birth to her newborn son James — whom she shares with her boyfriend Andrew Glennon — back in May, and the new mom can't stop doting over her baby boy. Now, Amber is opening up about how different it is being a new mom now at 28 years old versus being a new mom as a teen.
"I was clueless. I didn’t want to ask questions because I didn’t want to sound young or stupid… This is a chance for me to really show what kind of mother I am," she told Us Weekly. "Before, I wasn’t mature nor was the relationship right. I want to make sure I don’t fall into old patterns and get into a depressed state. I have to take care of myself. Healthy mommy, healthy baby."
Amber is already a mom to nine-year-old daughter Leah whom she shares with her ex Gary Shirley, and fans cannot get over how much little James looks like his big sister Leah.
"My sweet little angel," the 28-year-old wrote in the caption of a close-up shot of her baby boy. Even though she disabled the comments under the post on Instagram, fans flooded her Twitter mentions to gush over little James. "He’s so precious!!! you deserve him [and] his dad. So glad you’re finally happy," one fan wrote, while another commented, "Congratulations Amber. He is so adorable. I'm so glad you've found your soulmate."
Baby James was born on Tuesday, May 8 — just in time for Amber's birthday and Mother's Day — and Amber gushed over how happy she's been ever since she welcomed her new bundle of joy into her family. "So happy to share my Mother's Day yesterday with my beautiful babies Leah and Little James! And today is the happiest birthday I've ever had knowing that these angels are by my side," she gushed on Instagram.
It's nice to see that Leah gets to spend time with her little brother James and that her parents can get along now despite their extremely rocky history. Gary and Amber seem to be in a good place now. Gary even got to meet little James shortly after Amber gave birth, and he shared a very sweet message to Amber on Mother's Day.
"I wanna wish my wife [Kristina] a very happy Mother’s Day. She’s one of the best mothers I know. I also wanna wish [Amber] a happy Mother’s Day as well," he wrote on Twitter. "Thank you ladies for giving me [two] of the most precious girls I know (one from each) remember we are stronger in numbers!!!"
