'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Will Get To See Leah In Rehab — Thanks To Gary Shirley!

Amber’s baby daddy worked hard to make sure the ‘no contact’ order against Amber was lifted so that he could fly out to California and reunite the troubled MTV star with her 2-year-old daughter.

Teen Mom Amber Portwood has spent the past few weeks in Seasons Recovery Center in California, where she is being treated for her depression, addiction and anger issues. But although she’s making amazing progress, Amber, 21, is homesick and desperately wants to see her 2-year-old daughter Leah, whom she’s been away from since her suicide attempt on June 14. And reportedly, her wish is coming true!

Her former fiance Gary Shirley petitioned to get the “no contact” order against Amber — which prevented her from being in the same room as him and Leah — lifted, and it worked. Now, he plans on flying out to California on July 28 with Leah for Family Week.

“Amber has emailed Gary and says she likes the feeling of being sober,” an insider tells Ok! Magazine. “Gary says it gives him hope that Amber really is a changed person, because he still loves her and he wants to bring their family back together.”

And although Gary is nervous that Amber will fall back into her old ways once she returns home to Anderson, Ind., he hopes that seeing Leah will give her the motivation to finish treatment and work that much harder on her recovery.

“Amber assures him she wants to start attending AA meetings [when she gets home],” the source adds. We hope she can get her act together, for the sake of Leah and Gary, who has done so much to support her.
