She says she's "scared" and "excited!"
It’s official: Amber Portwood is expecting baby number two!
The Teen Mom OG has opened up about how excited she is to add to her family with her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. There’s nothing that shakes up the Teen Mom community quite like an unexpected pregnancy. After all, having unexpected pregnancies is what got the cast famous in the first place! Naturally, when rumors started up that Amber Portwood was expecting, it caused a huge amount of stir throughout the Teen Mom fan base.
Amber may not have planned to announce her pregnancy so early, but once the news got out, she decided to roll with the punches and move up her timeline.
There are many members of the Teen Mom cast who have been vocal about wanting more children. Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer have already started planning for baby number three, and Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra are hoping to announce another pregnancy soon! But Amber Portwood was never one that fans expected pregnancy news anytime soon —
especially since she only recently started dating her new boyfriend Andrew Glennon, who has a pretty significant criminal record.
When rumors began to circulate that Amber was pregnant, fans weren’t sure if it was true or just a rumor that a few outlets heard and ran with, but within a few days, we got a big thumbs up to Portwood baby number two!
Amber spoke to Us Magazine to confirm that she will very soon be a mother of two! In the exclusive interview, star revealed that at first, the news that she had a baby on board was a little scary.
“When I first found out, I was a little scared,” she said. “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.”
“We’re both very happy”
She added that she soon became overjoyed about the pregnancy.
“After the initial shock, it was nothing but happy thoughts and just enjoying my time with my boyfriend,” she added. “We’re both very happy.”
Many fans were concerned about something Amber had revealed earlier on the show: her medication. The OG previously revealed that she was on medication for borderline personality disorder as well as bipolar disorder. These medications, she revealed, could have negative effects on a pregnancy. Portwood revealed to US that she recently stopped taking her medications.
“I wanted to see if I was just unhappy because of the things that were going on in my life at the time with him, and I realized after weaning myself off that I actually am OK,” she said. “It’s manageable as long as you have a healthy lifestyle and healthy people around you.”
Amber also took to Instagram to share the news with her fans. In the shot, she shows the words “We’re Pregnant” in the sand alongside a caption that reads:
“Thank you everyone for all the kind words I’m very excited for my future with Andrew and our little family we are starting together! Love always.”
