Portwood, 20, spoke to US Magazine saying, "Child Protective Services agreed it was safer for her to stay at Gary's because of all the photographers outside my house.”

According to Amber’s father, custody of Leah has not been decided as of yet.

“They are all together sharing the baby, they’re just not sharing her as a couple,” Shawn Portwood told Radaronline.com exclusively.

“Everyone has visitation rights,” he added.

Another source close to Amber and Gary also emphasized that the living situation works- for now at least. “Everyone is fine. All parties agreed that this was best for Leah because of the press and paparazzi that were stalking Amber on a daily basis.”
