Instagram/itsgarytimeShortly before her posts, her ex Gary Shirley and his wife Kristina were praised for being ‘great parents’ and looking ‘so healthy’ after a shared weight loss journey[/caption]
In the first post, Amber, 33, shared a sad edit of the viral Pink Windmill Kids video.
While in the original video, the children introduced themselves by name, the edit saw the children all named with various mental issues.
A caption read: “All my problems showing up at once to ruin my day.”
The problems introduced themselves one by one, and were: overthinking, anxiety, seasonal depression, work stress, and financial stress.
Quickly after, the MTV alum shared another video hinting at her struggles. The clip showed four figures sitting in a car, with the caption: “My brain every day.”
In the backseats, “four hours of sleep” and “caffeine” sat, while “anxiety” drove the car.
In the passenger seat, a figure titled “me” sat glumly and was driven along while the others sang and danced.
GARY’S NEW LIFE
Amber and her ex Gary Shirley, 36, share a 14-year-old daughter, Leah.
She also helped care for Leah, whom the MTV dad obtained full custody of in December 2011, and the couple also share eight-year-old daughter Emilee.
On Reddit, one fan commented: “Wow didn’t know this was a thing but I’m happy to see it. Took years off them!”
A second wrote: “Wow!! Gary lost so much weight. I will always love them. They seem like great parents and people.”
Another raved: “They both look fantastic, and so healthy!!”
James, who turned 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.
Amber opened up about how she was feeling after 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.”
