“Amber is celebrating Leah’s second birthday at her new house on Sunday,” the source said. “It’ll be a small gathering for friends and family.”

“It’ll be a princess theme and Amber got little tiaras and necklaces for the kids,” the source added. “Amber even got Leah two princess tents!”

Gary threw his daughter a separate party last week, complete with balloons and a princess cake, as was first reported by According to the source, the on-again, off-again couple, who are currently not together, agreed on separate parties for their daughter’s sake.
