The Teen Mom OG star, 27, shared an Instagram photo of herself at the doctor and put it side-by-side with a photo of her beau. In the photo, Glennon is preparing for fatherhood by reading a book about babies. “Andrew reading his baby book and me making sure little James is a healthy boy!!,” she wrote on Wednesday, April 4, along with the hashtag, “#LifeisBeautiful.”
Portwood, who is already a mom to daughter Leah, 8, with ex-fiancé Gary Shirley, also took to Twitter to express how proud she was of herself and all the changes she’s made in her life.
“Some of you have so much to say about me but nothing to back it up! I’m an AMAZING mother who sacrificed my freedom to be sober for my daughter and family. None of you could make the decision I made to be incarcerated for a 5-year sentence just to be sober for my child!!” she tweeted on Wednesday. “I’m a strong and loving person who keeps going through all hardships when most have failed facing what I’ve faced. I’m damn proud of myself and the changes I’ve made to be a better person. The only opinion that matters is my daughter’s and family. Send love not hate.”

The reality star, who has been sober for more than five years, continued: “Today I’m so happy and full of love that I don’t even recognize the person I was. Happiness truly guides your life in a different direction and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my days with my little growing family.”
The MTV star announced she was having a boy via Twitter in December 2017. “Little baby Glennon is on his way,” she wrote. She also posted an image of a Christmas ornament with “It’s a Boy” written on it and a newborn holding a stuffed animal. Her Ob-Gyn also revealed the sex of her baby in an episode of Teen Mom OG in February.
“This is a boy, a very stubborn baby boy. Super stubborn,” the doctor joked. “He gets it from his mom,” Glennon said. “I have three sisters so I thought it would be a girl for some reason. But this is great, this is fantastic.”
Us Weekly broke the news in November 2017 that the pair was having a baby and were “really, really happy” about the upcoming addition to their family. The couple made their red carpet debut in August at the MTV Video Music Awards in L.A., after meeting when she was filming Marriage Boot Camp with ex-fiance Matt Baier. Glennon worked on the WE tv show at the time and contacted her after production wrapped.
The MTV star, who was first featured on 16 and Pregnant in 2009, shares joint custody of her daughter with Shirley. He had primary custody of Leah after Portwood was sentenced to five years in jail in 2012 on drug possession charges stemming from a 2011 arrest. She was released after serving 17 months due in part to good behavior.
