Amber Portwood blindsided pretty much everyone when she revealed that she’s expecting her second child. No, Matt Baier isn’t the father! Instead, she and her new boyfriend Andrew Glennon will be parenting this new little bundle of joy.
Needless to say, a lot is changing in Amber’s life right now, and she has some crucially important choices to make. How serious her relationship with Andrew will be, how she’ll parent this time around, and whether or not she’ll tie the knot with her boyfriend are all some important decisions on her table. Even though those will be difficult choices to make, there’s one more choice that all of her fans are wondering: What will she name her new baby?
Well, it looks like Amber has narrowed down the list! Check out what this soon-to-be mother-of-two decided to name her baby!
All mothers have different styles and methods when it comes to naming their children. Many have names picked out from the very beginning, while some choose to name their children after someone who is important to them.
Then there are those like Kailyn Lowry, who take as much time as they need to make sure the name they pick is exactly right… resulting in their child going nameless for a few months after they’re born.
Well… It looks like this time around, Amber is an early bird. She has already settled on what she’s going to name her baby!
After Amber revealed the gender of her baby, it obviously narrowed down the playing field of names. She decided to follow in the path of her first daughter’s conventional name…
Amber has a very strong relationship with her brother Shawn, who seems to be happy about her pregnancy. In fact, he apparently made a present for Amber’s new baby!
He wrote to her on Twitter, saying, “[Amber,] I finally completed your gift. However I’m not going to show it to you so you’ll see it tomorrow. I will send you this though.” He then attached a picture that reads “Proudly Made in the USA.”
Amber replied, “Awe Bubby I can’t wait!! I’m sure little James will love it!”
Which got many fans asking: Little James who?!
Many fans were very happy with Amber’s name choice. Reddit user Arobbsieannah wrote, “What a nice normal name! Leah and James is a nice sibset.” User forgivedaddy agreed, “Well that is a lovely, classic name. For once in this franchise lol.” User lmancini4 joked, “Let’s just be happy she isn’t going to pull a Kail and wait a month to name the poor baby.”
However, some fans noticed something about Amber’s name choice. Apparently, James is the name of Andrew Glennon’s father. His father, James Glenon, is a cinematographer with credits in film and television. He even secured an Emmy nomination for his efforts.
Unfortunately, he died in 2006 after complications from surgery for prostate cancer. That explains why Amber and Andrew would want to commemorate his incredible life by naming their son after him.
This lead many fans to speculate that Amber may decide to give her son the middle name Shawn, after her own father who passed away in 2014. Unfortunately, we’ll just have to keep waiting to find out!
