Whose baby is it?
Right now, Amber Portwood is having an experience that she hasn’t gone through since she was a teenager. In a surprising announcement, she revealed that she is expecting her second child. This time, her baby daddy is her new boyfriend Andrew Glennon, who Amber met while filming Marriage Boot Camp with her ex, Matt Baier.
For anyone who has been out of the Teen Mom loop for even a few weeks, the announcement felt like whiplash. Wasn’t Amber just planning a wedding with Matt? Who is this Andrew guy anyway?
In fact, for people who just tuned for the first time in months to see Amber Portwood with a baby bump, they might reasonably assume that Matt was the father. Even though Amber has confirmed that her baby daddy is Andrew, some fans are a little suspicious. They think that Matt might actually be the one who knocked her up.
Although Matt Baier was far from a fan favorite, most viewers thought that Amber was going to be with him for the rest of her life. Despite their explosive fights, Amber had a lot of time, money and emotional investments in the man she thought she would marry. It was hard to envision them ever breaking up. Now, whether she likes it or not, Amber’s new boyfriend Andrew will be a huge part of the rest of her life, since they’ll be parenting their new baby together.
However, the timeline of Amber’s pregnancy seems to be moving along very quickly. She confirmed that she was pregnant in November, and a clip of her taking the test on Teen Mom OG has already been released by MTV. That has led a lot of fans to speculate about her pregnancy, as well as when — and with whom — it began.
Amber filmed for Marriage Boot Camp from the middle of June until July, which is where she met Andrew and split up from Matt. She then posted a picture of Andrew on Instagram in August, and took him to the VMAs in September.
Amber has recently announced the gender of her baby on Dec. 8, which, as Reddit user ByeWig pointed out, “Twenty weeks is a popular point for an ultrasound to reveal the gender of the baby.” If this is true, and Amber is around six months pregnant now, it means that she could have gotten pregnant in July. But wait — that’s right after she met Andrew, and possibly while she was still with Matt.
It’s perfectly possible that Amber isn’t as far along as that, and could have conceived much later. But this was enough to place a seed of doubt in many fans’ minds, leading them to wonder if it’s possible that Matt is Amber’s baby daddy.
“My conspiracy theory is that the baby is Matt’s,” wrote user JuggsMcTitts. “The timing is…odd to say the least. Also makes me wonder if that’s why she had such a hard time dumping him.”
Unfortunately, there are a lot of holes in this theory. It’s perfectly possible that Amber found out the gender of her baby well before twenty weeks, as DNA testing could reveal it as early as ten weeks. It’s also likely that if Matt was the father, he would be making sure everyone knew. As user SundaySweatpants writes, “I really think Andrew is the father. If there was even the tiniest chance Matt could be the father, you know he’d be giving billions of interviews about it.”
Some theorized that the baby is Andrew’s, but that Amber got pregnant much earlier than she’d care to admit — potentially while she was filming Marriage Boot Camp! User Beachy5313 asked, “Do you think [Amber and Andrew] hooked up a lot earlier than she admits?”
