James is the second child for Portwood who has 9-year-old daughter Leah, whom she shares with her ex and TMOG star Gary Shirley.

Im on medication for depression now thats safe for pregnant women, because it was getting pretty bad and we had a scare that maybe I would fall into a postpartum depression after the baby.

After rumors started to swirl that the reality star was pregnant again, she decided to break her silence on the top In November. She tweeted to fans, "Thank you everyone for all the kind words. Im very excited for my future with Andrew and our little family we are starting together! Love."

 

Portwood has also been candid about going through her second pregnancy with borderline personality and bipolar disorder, telling People, "We were really against taking any medication during the pregnancy, but the doctor told me about one certain prescription that was okay for pregnancy and there were no effects on the baby or anything, so I ended up taking an antidepressant."
