Amber Portwood Reunites With Daughter, Savors Release From Prison

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Amber Portwood is now a free woman after spending 17 months behind bars.

Not surprisingly, that freedom comes as a sweet relief to the mother of one.

The first thing she did after her release from prison Monday was reunite with her four-year-old daughter, Leah, with whom she became famous on Teen Mom.

For both girls, it was a long-awaited and joyful moment ...

Amber Portwood was famously sentenced to five years in an Indiana prison for violating probation in her drug possession case in the middle of last year.

She was released years ahead of schedule for good behavior and time served.

Step one after getting out? Hit up a burger joint called Frisch's Big Boy for some real food. Step two? Visit the little angel who's been living with her dad.

Amber's ex-fiance, Gary Shirley, currently has full custody of the toddler.

She's planning to seek shared custody now that she's out, and depending on the progress she's made, and the status of things with Gary, she could get it.

They've had issues, but this isn't Charlie and Brooke we're talking about.

The troubled Teen Mom star, who had a series of substance abuse issues and brushes with the law before prison, says she is now 100 percent sober.

But can she stay clean and keep it that way? That's the real question.

We all hope so ... but vote in our survey:
