Amber Portwood

Powered by imdb

Amber Portwood was born in Anderson, Indiana, U.S.A. Amber was on the hit TV series, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, which followed her over the years, from her having her child to showing the struggles she faces with depression and anger issues. She gave birth to her first child, at the age of 18, on November 12, 2009 to "Leah Leann Shirley", with her on-again off-again boyfriend, "Gary Shirley". Amber dropped out of high school when she discovered she was pregnant but wants to get her G.E.D. and accomplish her dream of opening her own beauty salon. She has many troubles with her baby's father, Gary. The problems have led to physical violence. Amber was, eventually, arrested for domestic violence against Gary. On June 5, 2012, Amber was sentenced to 5 years in prison, after she chose to give up a drug rehabilitation program (which was initially offered to her to avoid going to prison). She is going to substance abuse classes and will get her GED, while serving her time in prison.  See full bio on IMDb »
