Teen Mom Amber Portwood buys 'extra toys' for son James' birthday as baby daddy Andrew Glennon has primary custody

TEEN Mom star Amber Portwood has revealed how she bought "extra toys" for her two-year-old son James' birthday this week.

The 30-year-old MTV star took to Instagram to share a photo of the bucket of toys she said would make the tot "smile" on his special day.

Amber, who has three unsupervised visits a week with the toddler, revealed she was due to see James on his birthday, May 8.

The 16 and Pregnant star shared a snap of the toys, which included stuffed animals, building blocks, plastic trucks and a mini drum set.

She wrote: "There's no room for extra toys for bubs birthday….I think. I can't wait to see his smile when he opens them in a couple days!"

Trolls immediately headed to the comments to slam Amber, saying the young boy would rather have a mom who "took care of him".

Others said that James would rather have her "time and affection" rather than Amber's money, and even suggested the toys were "disappointing".

But fans quickly flooded the nasty remarks with kind words of encouragement, telling the Teen Mom star James would "love" the basket.

"Amber still gets a chance to love on her son however she chooses to," one woman said, adding her daughter would be "so happy" with the gifts.

"She is trying to bring happiness to her child…gift giving is a language of love," another said, telling the haters to "unfollow and go elsewhere".

It comes months after the mom-of-two requested to have overnight visits with her son as the nasty custody war with baby daddy Andrew Glennon raged on. 

Andrew, 36, has primary physical custody of their son while Amber has three unsupervised visits a week with the toddler.

The Sun revealed how the Teen Mom OG star filed a petition to modify parenting time, claiming there has been a “change in circumstances” that “warrant” a change to their custody agreement. 

She claimed it is in the “best interest” of James, who turns 3 this week, that “the current parenting time be modified to include overnight parenting time.”

Andrew filed for and was granted primary custody of James after Amber was arrested for domestic violence against the cinematographer in July 2019. 

The Sun previously reported Amber’s claim that Andrew went against their custody agreement and refused to let her see their son the week of Christmas.

Andrew fought back against her claims by filing a series of claims in opposition to Amber's request. 

A source close to Amber exclusively told The Sun she is “really hurt” over the amount of time she has lost with her youngest child. 

The insider said: “Amber has to drive four hours in one day to see him. She has lost so much time with him. She sees him three days a week.”

Amber, who is also mom to daughter Leah, 12, with ex-fiance Gary Shirley, is “fighting for her son.”

The source continued: “She has such a great relationship with Gary. She has never had to fight like this before. She wants at least half custody. That’s much more equal and much more time with James.”
