Gary Shirley took to Twitter on Friday to share his opinions on the incident.
“My prayers are with @AmberLPortwood, Andrew, & most importantly baby James, idk any of the particulars, however I am thinking of them,” he tweeted. “And for all the questions and concerns Leas was/is currently camping with her best friend.”
Amber had previously lost custody of her daughter when she was dealing with her drug related issues. Gary is still the primary caregiver of their daughter.
Amber recently opened up about her relationship with Gary, and how he is starting to play a larger role in her family. She told Us Weekly that her baby daddy is “Uncle Gary” to her son, who was fathered by Andrew.
“It was good to feel like you’re able to mesh that life together because its hard when you have a new partner…Everybody gets along so it’s great,” she said.
This really is taking co-parenting a step farther! Amber believes Andrew is her soulmate, saying that “he’s a beautiful person” and she doesn’t “see [herself] with anybody else.”
As for future babies, she “definitely might have another kid with him.”
Those plans may be put on hold pending the outcome of this incident.

“I think [Bentley] handles it well on the outside,” Maci said. “No 10-year-old should handle some things like this, this well. That scares me.”
She is afraid her son might not be coping with his emotions properly, adding that “he doesn’t know how to face these feelings, which means he’s burying them somewhere.”
