She's "totally thrilled!"
Amber Portwood is one of the few Teen Mom cast members who only had one child. In fact, now that Farrah has reportedly been fired from MTV and the project, Portwood is the only mother-of-one left in the whole franchise.
But now, that’s about to change!
Amber has been noticeably off the radar for the past few weeks. She didn’t attend the filming of the Teen Mom reunion, and has hardly been posting on social media. Her behavior had fans wondering whether she was going through relationship issues with her new beau Andrew Glennon or even personal problems related to her troubled history of mental illness. Now, it’s perfectly clear what Amber was experiencing: another pregnancy!
Rumors of Amber’s pregnancy have been bubbling in the fan base for a few weeks now, but it looks like the news is finally official. Amber will soon have another little bundle of joy to take care of!
Aside from Farrah Abraham’s crossover into the adult entertainment industry, Amber Portwood has one of the most controversial story-lines of anyone in the Teen Mom franchise. In fact, production for Teen Mom was shut down when she was imprisoned on domestic violence and drug charges.
But the one thing Amber didn’t do that many of her co-stars did was have multiple babies by multiple fathers. It seemed she learned her lesson after her first unplanned pregnancy, and managed to get through the majority of TMOG filming without having another. That is, until now.
The ex-con reality star has been keeping a low profile over the past few months. She’s been relatively inactive on her social media accounts, and even missed the Teen Mom reunion filming last weekend (Oct. 21-23, 2017). In fact, she was the only girl who wasn’t in attendance! Fans began to worry that Amber was going through some hardship, or even trying to protect her new boyfriend from the spotlight.
But with this recent update, her absence makes a lot more sense. After all, an unexpected pregnancy is enough to throw anyone for a loop!
The Ashley has confirmed that Amber is expecting her second child, and that her pregnancy was reason for her absence from the reunion filming. “The official word told to everyone was that she didn’t come because she was sick,”The Ashley’s source said. “But basically everyone knew it was morning sickness. She’s been having a hard time so far, but Amber is totally thrilled about the pregnancy.”
According to The Ashley‘s report, the Forever Haute owner is pregnant by her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. By now, fans know that he has a pretty lengthy criminal record, but Amber seemed optimistic about their relationship regardless.
“We’re going slow and we’re just trying to be smart about everything, which is good to find somebody on your level like that,” she said during her appearance at MTV’s VMAs. “I think we just kind of fell into this groove of really enjoying life with each other for a while, so it’s kind of fun and it’s kind of serious in a way as well, but we’re trying not to put too much pressure on a relationship.”
Reddit users had mixed feelings about this announcement. “Holy f**k bring on the drama for next season,” wrote user htxcountrymuffin. “F**k, Amber, I cheered the fact that you hadn’t gotten pregnant again. We all know you hate motherhood.” User muellmund wrote, “I am not shocked she got pregnant again but I am shocked that she wouldn’t get an abortion.” User vickyleelee pointed out, “I bet grease ball Matt is fuming with rage right now….”
