Amber Portwood of MTV’s “Teen Mom” is now a mom of two!

She and partner Andrew Glennon welcomed a baby boy, whom they named James, on May 8. He joins 9-year-old sister Leah, whom Portwood shares with ex Gary Shirley. According to Us Weekly, baby James was born weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces.

Since little James’ birth, the mom has already shared a photo of the latest addition to their family, and he’s absolutely darling! Portwood posted a photo on Instagram of her daughter holding her new baby brother:


“Big Sis and little James! She was so excited to meet her little brother,” Portwood wrote. How adorable!

Leading up to James’ arrival, the 27-year-old mom told Hollywood Life that she could tell her daughter was excited to become a big sister for the second time. She is already a big sister to her father’s second child, Emilee.

“I just feel like she’s such a good big sister to Emilee already, but I can see how excited she is and it makes my heart smile,” Portwood told Hollywood Life.

Now that they’ve welcomed James into the world and the 9-year-old finally got to hold her baby brother, it seems as though the family is happy. Portwood’s ex and his wife Kristina Anderson even came by to meet the newborn baby:

See, that’s how co-parenting is done! We’re wishing them all the best.
