Gary posted two sweet pics of his wife, Kristina with his daughters, Leah and Emilee.

He captioned the snap: "Happy Mother’s Day to the ONE best MOM’s I know. You’re an amazing mother & stepmother. Know that you are way more than a stepmom! I couldn’t imagine doing this without you. Thanks for always being a great role model for our kiddos. You're my #mvp

"#happymothersday @kristina_shirley3 I also wanna take a moment and wish my sister-in-law a happy mother’s say. @bmccance1 you're a great one as well. 🙂 Last but not least, I wanna wish all the mom’s out there a happy Mother’s Day, they’re lots of you out there that sacrifice so much for children. You are not forgotten.

"Being a mom takes a lot. Long hours at work, coming home and teaching your kids, being a nurse, and the chef haha. Point is a mother is so much more than popping out a kid. So my hats off to all you mothers out there again Happy Mother’s Day. Ps, I hate grammar and typing so my apologies for any grammar issues. Ha."


Last month, Gary praised his wife Kristina for being able to balance “kids and responsibilities” after fans slammed his ex, Amber Portwood, for not being able to do the same.

Followers came after Amber for seeming to prioritize her schooling over her fixing her estranged relationship with her daughter, Leah, who is primarily being with Gary and Kristina.

Kristina is step-mom to Gary’s 12-year-old daughter Leah and also mom to a 13-year-old daughter from a previous marriage and her 5-year-old, Emilee, with Gary.

She's also going to school to become a registered medical assistant and plans on graduating in September.

Gary posted on Instagram: “She’s been going hard with school and studying and keeping up with the kids… she gets up at 4:45 AM Yikes!!! “My hat is off to all the parents who take care of their kids and responsibilities.”


Amber has two kids, Leah, with Gary, and son James, with her ex Andrew Glennon.

The situation between Amber, Leah, Gary, and Kristina recently erupted when the child mentioned not feeling a bond with her birth mother.

Amber told Gary on a call: "You and Kristina hinder my relationship with my daughter."

Amber responded to the haters telling the “people just like” her, the ones who “have a really rough past and you’re at the point in your life where you’re trying to pick yourself back up and actually make something of yourself and do better in life,” to only focus on themselves.

The MTV star continued: “Opinions of people who are just negative and ignorant, it doesn’t matter because the only opinion that really matters is yours. Knowing what you did wrong, picking yourself back up and then sitting there moving forward, that is something that’s the key to wisdom, honestly.”
