Amber Portwood sends love to her daughter Leah.
The MTV star took to Instagram on Sunday April 4 to wish her firstborn a happy Easter. “I know you go through a lot and there are a lot of things I have to do to get things right,” wrote Amber alongside a photo of the mother-daughter duo. “However, I will always love you, my beautiful daughter. I love you and Happy Easter.”
The mail came days after an episode of Teen Mom OG aired in which Leah said she did not want to invite Amber to her 12th birthday party and remarked that she would rather spend the day with her father, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina Shirley.
“We don’t really have that kind of bond,” said Leah. “Twelve years and she really didn’t do anything. That was kind of Kristina’s place.”
Kristina then called herself “a bonus mom” and Gary told Leah “it’s very important” that she spend time with Amber.
“I don’t want you to copy your mother off and say, ‘I can’t have a relationship with her’ and things like that,” he continued, “because you should have a relationship with her at some point.”
