Amber Portwood Hopes To Be A "Proper Family"

Amber Portwood hopes to be a proper family one day.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is the epitome of drama for this MTV reality series. And her baby daddy Gary Shirley sure knows a thing or two about drama himself.

Shirley was just picked up for driving with a suspended license with Amber in the passenger seat, while she recently lost custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Leah.

But she insists that the custody issue is under control. “Our goal was always to switch custody over to Gary so that I can focus on and deal with my legal s–t,” Amber told E!. “She’s with her father now so I can get through all of my legal issues and hopefully we can be a proper family.”

So what does she think of Shirley’s recent run-in with the law?

“We were bored and had nothing else to do,” the 20-year-old mom of one joked. “We were in Ellis, Ind., because we were driving around looking for apartments for me to move into,” she said, and added, “We had pulled over on the side of the road in front of this one place. We were like the only car on the road and it was late, and the police station was right across the street. So, of course the cop came over and asked us what was going on.”

“But we were not fighting,” she insisted. “Gary and I haven’t had a major fight in two years.”

Two years? Didn’t their TV fight air a few months ago?

What do you think of Amber and Gary?
