Could this explain the rumors?
Amber Portwood has just experienced one of the most exciting moments in any mother-to-be’s pregnancy: she’s announced her due date. We now know that Amber’s second child is due on Mother’s Day, and will be very close to Amber’s own birthday. The exciting reveal got fans buzzing about Amber’s pregnancy, but it also made the timeline of her pregnancy all the more clear. If Amber is hiding the secret fans think she is, that’s not a particularly good thing.
Until Amber’s child is born, fans will likely continue to wonder who the father is, despite Amber’s insistence that it’s her boyfriend, Andrew. Some fans think Matt may be the actual baby daddy, while others aren’t convinced either man got Amber pregnant. Now, another piece of the puzzle has come to light.
Amber has been open about her mental illnesses since her diagnosis, but there’s one symptom many with borderline personality disorder experience she hasn’t discussed publicly: sexual addiction. Now, fans are beginning to wonder whether Amber’s experience with sexual addiction could have landed her with an unexpected pregnancy by a total stranger.
Amber Portwood was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and bipolar early on in her Teen Mom career, but not many people fully understand what that really entails. Luckily, Amber painted a more clear picture in her memoir, Never Too Late. In an excerpt from the book, she explains the ways that borderline personality disorder can affect sexuality, and how it affected her specifically.
“It was always extreme when it came to partying and s*x,” she wrote. “When it really got down to it, my life at that time was nothing but pills and men. I used to get boyfriends for three months at a time, get bored, leave them, and go find another guy.”
She added that in retrospect, the experience looks different. “I never thought there was a problem with it,” she wrote. “But looking back I think it’s obvious I had a bad s*x addiction along with the pill addiction. And those lifestyles go hand in hand.”
Her addiction even affected her relationship. “I used to get into fights with boyfriends over how much s*x I wanted,” she wrote. “If they weren’t in the mood or they were too tired, I would go off. How insane is that?”
She adds that she’s not sure if there was some deeper need she was trying to fill. “I don’t know what I was trying to satisfy in myself,” she wrote. “Probably the same thing I’d always been trying to satisfy, just in a new way.”
Now that she’s opened up, fans are looking on to Amber’s addiction in an entirely different way with her new pregnancy. As rumors that Amber’s baby daddy isn’t Andrew OR Matt flare up, fans have begun to wonder whether her addiction has played a role. This, paired with her recently announced due date, has fans abuzz with questions.
“There was a girl on here around September that had leaked some of Ambers [sic] text messages texting a guy at 1 a.m. for him to come for [a] late night rendezvous while Andrew n Amber were on a break around the time Radar leaked Andrews story,” claimed an unnamed Twitter user. They added:
“Amber was screwing some guy from her hometown at the beginning of september texting him at 2 a.m. to come to her house for [their] late night f**k.. The text also said for him to keep it on the down low cuz she has a boyfriend.. […] Shes really a s*x addict and has mad mood swings when she doesn’t have s*x..”
