We were wrong in thinking Farrah Abraham was the only Teen Mom OG star to show up to the 2016 MTV VMAs — Amber Portwood’s ex Gary Shirley repped for the dads at the star-studded awards show!

Amber opted to stay back home in Indiana, but Gary snagged an invite (since he’s an original cast member, unlike some of the newer TM boyfriends like, say, Matt Baier or Taylor McKinney) and took the network up on the offer to attend.

Leah and Emilee’s dad walked the white carpet at Madison Square Garden solo (since his wife, Kristina Anderson, wasn’t invited).

And though his super casual outfit choice left much to be desired — who wears cargo shorts and a baseball cap to an awards show?! — it’s obvious he’s shed a few pounds since we last saw him.

He also seemed to have fun inside the show, snapping selfies with his fellow MTV cohorts:

In February, the condom entrepreneur admitted in a fan Q&A he wanted to start bettering himself and getting healthier.

“I do care [about my weight], of course,” he said. “Just hard to do and I have been going to the gym and changing eating habits, but staying consistent is hard.”

We get it, Gar! It’s clear whatever he’s doing is working little by little.

Amber has also been open about her steady weight loss progression, revealing she’s lost almost 40 pounds over the last year or so by cutting out sugars and certain carbs.

Thanks for all the love and support everyone!! I truly have the sweetest fans!! Mwah Sending love always

Now that her wedding to Matt Baier is postponed, she’ll have even more time to reach her goal weight before she gets hitched.
