Autumn Jones is, for reasons no one can figure out, dating Teen Mom baby daddy Gary Shirley. What's more, Leah is already calling her mommy, supposedly.
“Leah has become really attached to Autumn,” a source close to the situation says of Gary's daughter with Amber Portwood, with whom he is estranged.
“Amber’s never around and doesn’t spend quality time with Leah, so she’s latching on to someone that makes her feel secure, and Autumn’s a good girl.”
Hell of a catch, Autumn Jones. You go girl.
Amber’s ex-fiancé has apparently been quietly dating Autumn for about a month now. Interestingly, Jones has one-year-old daughter of her own named Kalaya.
“We've been on four dates; twice to IHOP, once to Texas Roadhouse, then to the movies and stuff. He’s a total gentleman and paid every time,” Autumn said.
“But we hang out like five times a week and every time Leah is there I spend time with her. We usually just hang out at his house and watch movies."
"He says we can get to know each other better that way.”Gary and Amber have been communicating with each other despite a No Contact Order - which they want lifted together - that prohibits them from doing so.
In December, Amber was charged with three counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent and spent the night in jail as a result.
“I know he loves Amber, and he knows I love my baby's father, so either way about it in the end if he ends up with Amber, I wouldn’t be mad,” Autumn said.
How mature. She adds of her new man, “He likes me a lot but he just doesn't want to get hurt again, so we’re just hanging out taking things slow.”
