Is it as bad as it seems?
There’s no bigger responsibility than welcoming a human being into the world. That’s why before becoming parents, most people make sure they’ve found their perfect match and have all of the necessary essentials to raise a child. Well, not everyone got the memo, and that includes the Teen Mom cast. When they became pregnant as teenagers, they had to struggle and fight to provide for their children and give them safe upbringings. As time went on, nearly all of the cast members ended up splitting from their first baby daddies, proving that the relationship wasn’t meant to be. Is Amber Portwood about to find herself in that situation once again?
Amber shocked fans when she revealed her second pregnancy — mostly because fans were only just getting to know her baby daddy! Whether Amber likes it or not, she’ll soon be a mother of two. But does that mean she and Andrew will be able to work out their “messy” relationship?
Some couples love to brag about the romantic way that they first met. Amber Portwood and her baby daddy Andrew Glennon might find their story a bit more difficult to explain. Andrew first laid eyes on Amber while she was filming for Marriage Boot Camp, as he was part of the crew for the show. There was just one problem: Amber was there to fix up her relationship with Matt Baier!
One thing led to another, and Amber eventually kicked Matt to the curb and got together with Andrew. But those who were closest to the situation are calling Amber’s lateral move a “mess.”
Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus Nicolino watched Amber’s relationship with Matt dissolve firsthand as they hosted Marriage Boot Camp. Now Dr. Ish is speaking out about Amber’s new relationship.
“The issues with [her new relationship] is the impulsivity of it,” Dr. Ish told In Touch Weekly. “You are in a program designed to get you some closure and move forward in your life, in wherever direction that takes you — but while you’re in the program, the guy you came with doesn’t work out, so you end up with another guy, and you ended up getting pregnant — it’s a mess.” He added that Amber’s “personality issue” may have contributed to her inability to be alone.
“I certainly don’t like the fact that it happened while she was there, and it speaks to me that there might be more of the same in store for her with [Andrew],” Dr. Ish went on. “The thing that’s the same in every dysfunctional relationship she’s had is her. She’s the common link. That makes me worry for her in this relationship also.”
Dr. Venus chimed in to agree, “While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, we shouldn’t find stability in our children or in our relationships. Stability needs to come from within us.”
Now someone very close to Amber is defending her choice to stay with Andrew: her brother, Shawn.
