Gary Shirley, formerly single dad and Teen Mom cast member, has been dating his girlfriend Kristina for quite a while. We saw her during the Being Amber special that aired nearly a year ago, and she’s been a constant in his life since then. Rumors were stirring that the two might be expecting a child together after some suspicious Tweets were posted online, but until now things have been up in the air. If you’ve forgotten about Gary’s Tweets, I’ll just leave this here.
Yesterday, Gary took to Twitter to share a baby belly picture of his girlfriend with the caption
I get to welcome in the New Year with
@leah_leann sister! Half way there yay!!!!
If Gary’s girlfriend is currently 20 weeks pregnant, that means that she would be due around May 20th.
Gary confirmed that he and his girlfriend are expecting a little girl together. If you remember from the Being Amber special, Kristina already has a daughter named Karley from a previous marriage, and Gary has his daughter Leah from his relationship with Amber Portwood. This new baby will be the third girl for the blended family, and the second daughter for both Gary and Kristina.
This upcoming season of Teen Mom continues to get plot changes, and I’m loving it. Within the last week, we’ve had two original Teen Mom cast members confirm second pregnancies, and Catelynn and Tyler have welcomed their second child into the world. All of these journeys will be filmed and presented to us in the next season of Teen Mom, which is allegedly going to premiere sometime this month!
As a reminder, the “Where Are They Now?” special for season 5 or 16 & Pregnant will air on Sunday, January 4th at 8:30 a.m. EST or 8:00 p.m. EST. If you’re feeling super nostalgic, you can check out the previous “Where Are They Now?” specials on MTV that day from 3:30 – 8:00 p.m. and reminisce on the former crops of 16 & Pregnant girls.
