Soon after the recent incident, Shirley took to Twitter to express his sympathy. "My prayers are with @AmberLPortwood, Andrew, & most importantly baby James. Idk any of the particulars, however, I’m thinking of them. And for all the questions and concerns Leah was/is currently camping with her best friend," he tweeted.
