Was it really an "oops" pregnancy?
Amber Portwood announcing her second pregnancy was one of the most unexpected announcements a Teen Mom cast member has given in a while. After she had Leah eight years ago, it seemed that Amber had her hands full just trying to visit her daughter often enough while she stayed with Gary full-time.
She never spent much time talking about wanting to have more children. Even while she was in a committed relationship and engaged to Matt Baier, the two didn’t really discuss the idea of having babies. That’s why when rumors started to surface that Amber’s new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, had gotten her pregnant, fans simply couldn’t believe it.
Eventually, everyone had to though! Amber soon confirmed that she was pregnant with her second child, much to everyone’s surprise. This complete 360 seems to pose more questions than it answers, though.
Amber says that her pregnancy was completely unexpected, but as more time passes, some fans have different theories. Could Amber and Andrew planned to get pregnant on purpose after Amber left Matt?
Amber Portwood has always been a pretty unpredictable member of the Teen Mom cast. When she started living with her boyfriend who was 19 years older than her, it became clear that it would always be impossible to know what she would get up to.
After that, fans were sure that she was going to get married to Matt, whether they liked him or not. She proved them wrong once again when she went on to kick him to the curb after he failed a polygraph test about cheating on her.
Although she said she was going to stay single, she pulled out another surprise when she announced she was seeing someone new.
Enter Andrew Glennon, who has only recently made his debut appearance on Teen Mom OG. Only a few months after this announcement, Amber confirmed rumors that she was pregnant. Her family’s going to get a little bigger!
Amber told media outlets that her second pregnancy was a complete surprise and entirely unplanned. “When I first found out, I was a little scared,” she told Us Magazine. “I just kind of sat down and thought about it and realized that it was a big step in my life and it was a good thing actually, and I was really happy within 30 minutes.”
However, as fans start to learn more about Andrew and Amber’s relationship, it seems to some that this couple’s pregnancy might not have been as accidental as they’re portraying it to be.
“Just watched last night’s [Teen Mom OG] episode, and Amber was talking about how she never wanted kids but after Leah she was done having kids because Leah’s perfect for her,” wrote Reddit user Bitchezbecraay. “But then she said she’s done having kids ‘unless’… implying unless the person she’s with really wants kids.”
“Either she was pregnant already or Andrew was dropping hints,” they concluded, before asking, “Does anyone think Andrew talked Amber into trying for a baby?”
“How could it be a case of oops when there was never an oops with Matt? It seems odd she never got pregnant from Matt (that we know of) and then just HAPPENED to get pregnant almost immediately from this new guy??” wrote user elmnopq. “I think it was planned and she’s trying to play it off so she doesn’t look even crazier for how much they are rushing into things.”
“I totally think it was a spite baby!” wrote user MissPookieOokie. “This girl has kept her sh*t in line for years. Granted she was in prison for a few but if you don’t want kids you don’t have kids. Simple as that. No oops. I know birth control fails but mehhh…”
Others believe that Amber’s second pregnancy was unintentional. “Heat of the moment ‘don’t make me wear a condom’ would be my guess,” wrote user ROFL_stiltskin. “Foresight does not seem to be a strong point amongst cast members on this show.”
User madame_ theorized, “She was on birth control when she was dating Matt. After she broke up with Matt when she decided to go off her psych meds to see how she felt I bet she stopped taking her birth control too.”
In the meantime, Amber and Andrew are planning for the arrival of their first child as a couple, and she has even revealed her baby’s name!
