'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Reunited With Leah For The First Time Since Suicide Attempt!

The troubled MTV star had a supervised visit with her 2-year-old daughter, who hasn’t seen her mommy since the June 14 suicide scare.

It was a happy reunion for Teen Mom Amber Portwood, 21, and her 2-year-old tot, Leah. The pair were able to see each other for the first time this morning, June 23, since Amber attempted to commit suicide and was found in a very depressed state in her home in Anderson, Ind. on June 14.

Amber met with Leah outside her home, where an eyewitness tells RadarOnline.com via Star magazine, “Maybe there was an official from Child Protective Services inside her house, but I didn’t see anyone else outside with Amber and Leah except someone who looked like an MTV cameraman!”

Amber gets a supervised visit with Leah for two hours, one day a week, ever since primary physical custody was given to baby daddy and on-again-off-again beau, Gary Shirley.

The troubled star told Star exclusively that she would be going to rehab in California after she finishes seeking treatment with a psychiatrist in Anderson.

“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” Amber admitted. “I’m on medication at the moment to help me just relax. I’m getting the help I need from friends, family and counseling.”

We hope Amber was able to enjoy what little time she gets to spend with Leah.
