People magazine shared the news that Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child. The Ashley’s Reality Roundup confirmed that this was indeed true. According to The Ashley, this is the reason for Amber’s sudden absence from social media, and the production crew was well aware of her pregnancy. There isn’t really any more information about Amber’s pregnancy at this time.
During an episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber did say that she decided not to have any more kids after she was rediagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and the medications she was placed on would mess with the fetus. Without them, she would have crazy mood swings. It was a surprisingly mature choice for Amber…that did not last very long. At least she didn’t add to Matt Baier’s horde of illegitimate kids, right? That’s a plus. Right?
The Ashley says that Amber’s new beau, Andrew Glennon, is the father of the unborn child. They have been dating since about August and met while Amber was filming Marriage Boot Camp with her now ex-fiance, Matt Baier. Andrew seemed like an improvement from Boston Baier; he had a job as a cinematographer, he was a reasonable age compared to Amber, and he had a place in Malibu (presumably). In an interview with Us Weekly, Amber told the magazine, “We’re going slow and we’re just trying to be smart about everything, which is good to find somebody on your level like that. I think we just kind of fell into this groove of really enjoying life with each other for a while, so it’s kind of fun and it’s kind of serious in a way as well, but we’re trying not to put too much pressure on a relationship.”
Welp, so much for that! If you learned anything from being on Teen Mom, Amber, its that having a baby with someone you’ve only been dating a few months adds A LOT of pressure to a relationship. Especially after it was revealed that Andrew had not one but two restraining orders against him and he was arrested for a DUI in 2014. He just wouldn’t be Amber’s man without some shady past, eh? None of these are good for a relationship. Don’t ignore red flags, Amber! You should have learned this by now. Guess not. I do wonder if how the long-distance thing will work out. Does Andrew plan on moving to Indiana to be closer to Amber and his child or if Amber would actually move to Malibu because, you know, that would require doing something. Only time will tell.
Now that Amber is knocked up, this makes Farrah Abraham that only one girl from the Teen Mom franchise to not have a second child. Think about it. Out of the eight girls (not counting Teen Mom 3 or the addition of Briana to TM2), seven ended up having second and even third children. The remarkable ironies in all this are 1) the only girl who seemed to practice safe–at least protected—sex is in the sex industry and 2) she was fired (or was she?) from a show that promotes safe sex. Let that sink in.
