Of all of the potential plot twists for the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG, not many people expected this one — a pregnancy from the current mother-of-one Amber Portwood! Amber only recently split up with her ex-fiancé Matt Baier, and began dating her current boyfriend Andrew Glennon shortly after. Even so Andrew has gone from boyfriend to baby daddy in a matter of months! Amber confirmed the news that she is expecting earlier this week.
Now, Amber is showing off her baby bump and spilling all of the beans about her unexpected bundle of joy. Far from her reaction when she was 16 and Pregnant, Amber seems through the roof about the surprise!
Thinking About the Future
After breaking up with her ex Matt Baier, Amber took some time to herself. Then, after three months of being single, she quickly found love in the arms of another — Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Edition crew member Andrew Glennon.
Recently, Amber seemed to drop off the face of the planet. She was MIA for filming the Teen Mom reunion even though all of her co-stars showed up. Fans began to worry that there was something worrisome going on in her life as she posted less frequently on social media.
Soon it became clear why Amber had taken a respite: after numerous rumors, Amber finally confirmed herself that she is expecting her second child! She has since opened up about the way she reacted to the news.
“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.”
Both she and her new boyfriend are ecstatic about the news. “We’re both very happy,” she said. “I feel like it’s a new of my life.” It even looks like Amber may have finally found the one, as she revealed that Andrew is “Already thinking about the future.”
Of course, as with any mother-to-be, Amber is experiencing some serious nerves. “I don’t know what to expect,” she said. “Having a new baby is new likes, new wants, new needs, so it’s very nerve-racking.”
Amber’s fans will remember that she previously revealed she was not meant to get pregnant while taking her medications for borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.
“I wanted to see if I was just unhappy because of the things that were going on in my life,” she told Us Magazine. “I needed to see where I was in my head and it’s a beautiful thing because I just feel better. I feel happier and not so depressed.” She added, “It was rough, but it was a necessary thing to do.”
Amber and Andrew showed off her baby bump in a photoshoot with Us Magazine, and the new couple looks as happy and healthy as ever.
Unfortunately, many fans are still apprehensive about Amber’s pregnancy by a man with such a lengthy criminal record… but, to be fair, Amber has a criminal record of her own and she’s doing just fine.
