Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley's co-parenting relationship is going as "smoothly as it can be."

The Teen Mom OG star opened up to PEOPLE about her rocky relationship with her 29-year-old ex and how they came about sharing 50/50 custody of their daughter Leah in a civil way.

"Me and Gary sat on his front porch and talked about everything," Portwood tells PEOPLE. "[We were] like 'Okay, what should we do?' And we made the decision that he would take primary custody, simply because we didn't want to take her out of her school. She's going to a really great school and she's in an advanced class and I don't want to take that away from her."

The times have changed, but have the OGs?

More than five years have passed since America met Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham – girls whose great expectations were put on hold when they learned they were expecting.
