It wasn’t long before they announced their unexpected pregnancy, and it won’t be much longer before fans get to see the first adorable pictures of their newborn child.

It’s official: Amber Portwood is going into labor for her second child. She revealed the exciting news to fans with a brief update via Twitter: “Another nocturnal night with my uncomfortable pregy belly,” she wrote. “But it’s all worth it! I’m 3cm dilated and home waiting for labor. Wonder if I’ll make it to my due date? Wish me luck loves! Goodnight.”
Amber’s baby daddy Andrew Glennon previously revealed her due date via an Instagram post. “Bomb’s Away!” read his announcement which captioned a picture of a pink horse on a rainbow rocket. “Due date: MAY 13th, Mother’s Day! One day before Amber’s actual birthday. She was born on Mother’s day 1990. The stars really aligned on this one.”
The stars have clearly aligned, but apparently their son couldn’t wait until May 13 to start his journey into the world. At 3cm dilated, Amber is considered to be in the early stages of labor. Luckily, Amber and Andrew have also revealed what name they picked out for their son.
“It’s Andrew’s father’s name who passed. Andrew was very close to his father. That’s the main reason he got into cinematography — his father and his grandfather,” Amber explained to In Touch Weekly. “He really wanted to honor his father and I thought that was a beautiful thing. I even was thinking of putting my dad’s middle name in there, but my brother is named after my dad so we just went with James Andrew Glennon. It means a lot and I love the name.”
They even had the chance to celebrate an adorable baby shower anticipating the arrival of their baby.
Amber’s pregnancy seems to have been healthy and safe, which is a relief considering her recent pregnancy complications. Her diagnosis of gestational diabetes was revealed on Teen Mom OG. “My morning sickness has been getting worse, so I went to the doctor and found out I have gestational diabetes,” Amber said in a voiceover for Teen Mom OG. In the clip, she told Andrew, “I feel like I could just like go to sleep right now. I need to eat some fruit or something. Maybe my sugar’s just low.”
“This pregnancy — I don’t know if it’s because I’m older — has definitely been a lot more rough,” she added. Luckily, she has some helpful friends in her corner.
