But Shirley, 29, doesn't seem to think that Portwood is prepared for that responsibility.

"Leah needs to be in a stable, steady home," he said.

He also doesn't approve of Portwood's fiancé Matt Baier, 43.

"Her fiancé has 7 kids and she doesn't even know about this," Shirley explained.

Unfortunately Portwood doesn't agree with Shirley's reasoning.

"I've been with this man for over a year," she shouted. "I think I know him."

It's clear that life is never easy for Portwood.

"I always feel like I'm one step ahead, I get knocked back five steps," she said in a side note to the cameras.
