Amber shares 12-year-old daughter Leah with ex Gary Shirley and two-year-old son James with ex Andrew Glennon, and she’s been open about the co-parenting struggles she’s been having with both.

During an interview with Us Weekly, the Teen Mom star was asked if she’d ever want to have more kids in the future, despite currently being embroiled in custody battles.

Looking ahead, Amber shared: “If I found the right person that educated himself a bit on a few things, yeah I would definitely want more kids. I do want another child.” 

As of right now, though, she said kids aren’t in her immediate future because she really has to find a guy who can be a true partner for her first.


Amber added that if “there’s somebody out there who can understand and just be educated on a few things, then, yes, I would” have more kids. 

Of the qualities she’s searching for, she revealed she needs someone who is “very empathic, good energy, [and] soulful. 

The reality star continued that she wants a “man who is a caregiver, just like me, and wants to take care of people, just as much as I like to take care of others, it has to be mutual.” 

Amber’s relationship with baby daddy Andrew is so strained that she admitted she’s even anxious to run into him while back in her hometown.


In a preview clip for Tuesday night's Teen Mom OG, Amber’s invited on a boating trip by ex-fiancé Gary Shirley and his wife Kristina. 

"We'll probably go to Giest, near your old crib. The one you used to have… It's Andrew's now," Gary tells Amber.

Looking nervous, Amber tells Gary and Kristina: "I just don't want to run into anyone or anything or…"

Trying to convince herself, the MTV star adds: "We'll be fine. We'll be just fine."


Although she's still in Indiana, Amber currently lives a considerable distance away from Andrew and James in a rental home.

Despite her happy boat outing with Gary and his wife, Amber recently claimed her he told her "you miss Big Daddy" and "made her lie on top of him."
