The Ashley broke the news that Amber was dating Andrew Glennon, a lighting technician she met while filming Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars earlier this summer.
Amber was on the show to try and repair her relationship with her ex-fiancé, Matt Baier. “The camp” didn’t work for them, but Amber got a new boo out of it! (And, as The Ashley told you, Andrew is a mega-catch compared to ol’ Matt. He’s well-educated and comes from a highly respected Hollywood family.)
Meanwhile Matt is living in Las Vegas, most likely playing the penny slots and trying to find a shop that will remove his giant “Amber” tattoo.
Amber spoke to Us Weekly about how she and Andrew became romantically involved.
“He didn’t really know who I was and we didn’t talk on the show because, you know, he would get in trouble, but I didn’t even know that he even liked me,” Amber said. “It just simply was he had a little crush on me.”
Amber said she was only back in Indiana for two weeks when Andrew reached out to her. He eventually came to visit her in Indianapolis.
“We decided that we just wanted to be friends at first because we were just having so much fun talking with each other, and, you know, then when he came out to hang out, we just had even more fun together, so that’s just how it started,” she said.
Andrew spoke to the magazine about falling for the ‘Teen Mom’ star.
“It was definitely butterflies there, but again, as we started talking, strangely, I felt so comfortable, which was amazing,” he said. “I feel like that’s hard to find.”
Andrew, who lives in Malibu, California, has visited Amber at her home in Indianapolis, met her daughter Leah and has already hit the red carpet with her, but Amber insists that they are not rushing their relationship.
“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,” she said. “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.”
Amber said she’s not concerned about being in a long-distance relationship.
“It’s been good because we can give each other space even,” she said. “It balances everything out, especially when you first break up with somebody. You don’t really want to jump right into another situation, but you know, some men are worth it, some aren’t. He’s definitely worth my time.”
Amber said Leah likes Andrew as well.
“She sent me a message, like, pretty much she really likes him. We went out a couple of days ago and got ice cream and went out to dinner and walked around and had some fun,” she explained. “I think she just thinks he’s new and different which is a good thing, but like I said, nothing is forced and we’re not trying to jump that part of my life in, so it’s very chill, very relaxing. Leah was very comfortable.”
Amber said we will get to see this relationship play out on the next season of ‘Teen Mom OG,’ as they have already started filming for the show together.
