Amber shared the black and white photo on Instagram on Monday.
She captioned it, “Drinking water and staying positive,” and added the hashtags, “every day is not easy,” and, “doing the work.”
The TV personality’s post comes after she sparked fears by appearing to have diluted pupils in a selfie.
Amber shared a photo of herself posing in a low-cut red dress on Snapchat at the weekend.
Some fans noticed that her pupils seemed to be dilated, though, and debated with one another on an online forum about whether or not they looked “normal.”
A few posters argued that “no,” Amber’s eyes did not look like they should.
One Teen Mom fan said this could be due to a Snapchat filter altering her appearance.
Another claimed any kind of medication could possibly have that effect.
The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed the photo of the single dad smiling as an energetic James, four, threw up both his arms in the air behind him.
Andrew, 38, shared the snap on his private social media.
James, who turns five in May, has been living in Malibu, California, after Andrew was awarded full custody of their son, and permission to relocate them out of Indiana.
Amber has regular monthly visits with James which include overnights.
As The U.S. Sun exclusively reported, James’ new life is far different than what it looked like previously.
While the physical distance has grown between Amber and her son, she is making her visits with him a top priority, the insider claimed.
“Amber is now at the full visits with James that the court set forth for them in their final custodial decision. She has him five days a month, and her time with him alternates between California and Indiana.”
Another insider close to the Teen Mom star added that the toddler is actually “with her right now and she is thrilled about the time with him.”
They added that when Amber isn’t with James she is frequently on FaceTime with him to bridge the gaps between visits.
“Amber has been trying really hard to make sure she’s in James’ life despite the distance. It’s tough on her, but she’s making it work,” the source added.
Amber opened up about how she’s feeling since the custody loss in part two of the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter reunion special that aired in December 2022.
After a brief recap of season one, Dr. Drew asked Amber: “So what are your thoughts as you watch that?”
She responded: “Uhh, just ready to not be here. Don’t want to deal with that right now.”
The host inquired further, asking: “Don’t want to deal with the James thing?”
Amber flatly answered: “All of that. All of it. All of it was horrible.”
Her struggles with mental health and addiction were extensively covered on the show, as was her stint in prison.
Over 10 years ago, the star served 17 months behind bars on drug charges.
After her release in 2013, she fought to remain sober, reconnect with her daughter, and resume her studies in college.
