He's not taking the news well!
It’s one of the biggest stories spreading around the Teen Mom-verse right now: Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child. Although Amber hasn’t acknowledged her pregnancy herself, numerous outlets and sources have all colluded the fact that Leah Shirley will soon have a half-sister.
However, with Amber in a brand new relationship, it left a lot of fans wondering who exactly got her pregnant? Although all signs pointed to Andrew Glennon, there were some who theorized that Matt Baier could be the baby’s father. Now, a new update to the story makes it pretty clear that Matt couldn’t be Amber’s second baby daddy ― apparently, he didn’t even know that Amber was pregnant!
Matt has recently revealed that he was entirely blindsided by his ex’s pregnancy. In fact, from this update, it seems that he still has feelings for his ex-fiancée.
Matt Baier and Amber Portwood were one of the most iconic couples in Teen Mom history… but not for good reasons, per se. They were controversial from the very start when it was revealed that Matt was nineteen years older than Amber, and they quickly became known for excessive spending, explosive fights, and numerous wedding postponements. Soon, Matt Baier’s history started coming out of the woodwork, including the fact that he had fathered numerous children over the years ― many of whom he refused to take responsibility for.
Like many of their Teen Mom cohorts, Amber and Matt headed to star on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars to try to sort things out. It was during filming for that show that Amber met her current boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, and when Matt reportedly stormed off during filming to go to Vegas, the two were done for good. Amber made it official with Andrew a few months later.
Now, Amber has another serious life update going on. She’s reportedly pregnant with her second child, which numerous outlets and sources have confirmed. Although many people questioned whether Andrew or Matt was the father, the fact that Matt didn’t even know about the pregnancy might answer that question! Needless to say, Matt is not taking the news particularly well.
“Matt has a lot of regret about their break-up,” one of Matt’s friends told HollywoodLife.com. “He feels like Amber is the one that got away. There’s still a part of him that was hoping they might eventually get back together, so this pregnancy news hit him hard.”
“He’s happy for her but it would be a lie to say it hasn’t been a blow for him,” the source added. “They were supposed to be getting married this past month (Oct. 13) and instead she’s having a baby with another man. It’s rough.”
Matt’s own reaction proves that he has mixed feelings about the news. When told that Amber was pregnant, Matt replied, “You’re kidding.”
He added in his interview with Radar Online, “Amber is a great mother. If this is what she wants then I’m extraordinarily happy for her and I wish them nothing but the best.”
He told Radar that he hasn’t spoken to Amber “at all” since their breakup, but that he is going to “text her congratulations.”
Matt also said that he is “doing great,” and that he’s dating someone new.
As for Amber, she seems excited for the new addition to her family. “It was totally unexpected, but she is really excited,” a source told Radar. “She’s been feeling really sick lately, but her spirits are good.”
Although Amber hasn’t announced her pregnancy publicly, she has reportedly told her family. “She told her friends and family about the pregnancy a few weeks ago,” the insider said. “They all had a good reaction.”
