“Rehab Addict” star Nicole Curtis’ baby daddy is ramping up his fight to get more visitation with his son, and claims Curtis is using her decision to continue breast feeding their two-year-old son as the reason he can’t get more daddy time.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Shane Maguire demanded he be awarded more parenting time with Harper after recently relocating to Michigan from Minnesota to be closer to his son.
Maguire says Nicole has given him major issues ever since he filed for custody against the DIY network star, and claims she continuously denies him parenting time.
His major contention with Curtis has to do with her decision to continue breastfeeding their 30-month-old son. He says “Harper is two and one-half years old and no longer needs to be nursed.”
The nursing issue has been raised before, and Curtis recently told PEOPLE she not only defends the act of nursing, but believes it should be the child’s decision for when to stop.

Maguire sued Curtis back in 2015 for paternity, joint legal custody, and liberal parenting time. They had broken up prior to learning Curtis was pregnant.
Last year Maguire was awarded joint legal custody, with Harper’s primary residence remaining with Curtis. The reality star was also ordered to pay $1,200 in child support to Maguire.
He is seeking a court order awarding him more parenting time and a provision stating if Nicole is traveling for business he gets the first right to watch Harper. Nicole has yet to respond.
