After having her two-year-old daughter temporarily taken away from her last week, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood cleaned up her home and on Monday was reunited with her daughter Leah, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“Amber hired someone to clean up her apartment recently and even went out over the weekend to buy a proper baby bed for Leah,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
“She was trying to get everything up to par at home so that Child Protective Services would deem it a suitable place for Leah and she’d get her back; and it looks like it worked.”
Sources tell RadarOnline.com the exchange happened at 4:30 p.m. EST and that the baby’s father, Gary Shirley was very upset about the decision.
“He really loves Leah and was so excited to have her when the court placed her in his care,” the source said.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, baby Leah became a ward of the state of Indiana last week after an emergency child placement hearing on Tuesday in which Leah was temporarily placed with Shirley.
An assessment of Leah’s living quarters with Portwood by CPS proved unsuitable, although Portwood was awarded monitored visitations.
It’s unclear if Portwood’s parental rights have been reinstated.
“Originally Amber was supposed to have a monitored visit today with Leah, but when CPS saw the change in her apartment they decided it met Leah’s needs,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“CPS will continue to monitor Amber a few times a week and check in with her to make sure it’s going well, but as of now, Leah is back in her care.”
The 20-year-old mother of one was charged with domestic violence earlier this month after an aggressive assault on Shirley was caught by MTV cameras while Leah stood at her feet.
Child Protective Services and the Anderson Police Department were unavailable for comment when contacted by RadarOnline.com.
