Teen Mom OG: Gary Shirley’s Creative Mother’s Day Celebration
Due to the diagnosis, the Teen Mom star had to get a bit creative when it came to celebrating his mom. He dropped off brunch for his mother Carol in the morning on her porch. He wished her a Happy Mother’s Day while he prayed for her outside of her home.
Kristina and Gary Shirley made a little bit of everything so his mom and her partner can choose what they wanted to eat. They cooked some bacon, eggs, sausage, toast, pancakes and a delicious pie.
Dropping food off for his mom is not new to Gary Shirley. He and his wife Kristina have been dropping off food for her so that she could focus on getting some rest.
Gary Is Missing His Mom
The Teen Mom dad shared on social media that he has not hugged his mom in about three months. She also has not been at his home for about the same amount of time. He added that this has been extremely hard for all of his family.

Amber Portwood’s ex, Gary also shared with fans that his youngest daughter that we sometimes see on Teen mom episodes has an immunodeficiency disorder. Because of this disorder, she is prone to getting sick easily. Gary and his family have not taken quarantine like a joke. Instead, they have stayed home and when they have gone out to the store, the kids stay behind.
Gary’s mom lives with her partner Jody and it looks like he now has the symptoms of COVID-19 as well. Jody is not a confirmed case yet because he has not had the test done. He simply is having all of the symptoms at this point.
