‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood’s Ex-Fiance Matt Baier Reacts to Her Pregnancy News

“I’m just saying I wouldn’t have minded adding another offspring to my collection!”

Teen Mom OG fans were shocked when news broke on Wednesday that Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child, but perhaps no one was more surprised by the news than Amber’s former fiance, Matt Baier.

Radar Online tracked the former ‘Teen Mom OG’ star down in Las Vegas, where he’s been living since his split from Amber earlier this year and apparently broke the news of Amber’s pregnancy to him.

“You’re kidding!” a blindsided Matt reportedly told the site.

He then added that, even though he hasn’t spoken to Amber “at all” since their breakup, he’s happy for her and her new beau, Andrew Glennon.

“Amber is a great mother,” Matt told Radar. “If this is what she wants then I’m extraordinarily happy for her and I wish them nothing but the best.”

He also stated that he planned to congratulate her via text message, and revealed that he’s currently dating someone new himself.

Matt has basically disappeared from the spotlight since being dumped by Amber this spring after a variety of cheating allegations broke. He and Amber went to Los Angeles in early summer to film a season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, which is where Amber met her new baby-daddy Andrew. (Matt reportedly left the show during filming.)

Amber and Matt were together for several years, but Amber did not become pregnant during that time. Fans were surprised that Amber didn’t get pregnant (due to the fact that dad-of-many Matt is obviously a very fertile man!) During an episode of ‘Teen Mom OG,’ Amber explained that she was actively choosing not to get pregnant, because she was on medications for her bipolar disorder that she would have to get off of if she conceived.

She stated that the medications would “mess up the fetus” if she continued to take them during her pregnancy.

It is not known if Amber is currently taking the medications.

  1. No wonder he does so well at poker. He is a lucky guy dodging that bullet for three long years. Andrew better stay away from gambling unlucky dude.????

    1. What about the unborn baby and Leah? Are you happy for them?
      It’s the children that will suffer.
      Amber can’t even get full custody of her daughter. How will this effect her?
      Amber is in the position to have another child. This guy also has a criminal background with more than one current restraining order against him.

  2. Hopefully she stops the coke and booze long enough for the fetus to survive. Then again, she’s a horrible mom so it may be the best thing in the end.

      1. Plastic? Full of air? Wait…Matt is dating FARRAH?? ??
        Although he DID try and date her first so it wouldn’t surprise me..
        Tbh I think he’s full of sh*t. No one in their right mind would date that gross AF NonDad! He’s just one of the franchises pathological liars, we ALL know that.

    1. Oh shit I forgot about the plates! Hahahaha! What about his AMBER tattoo across his arm?? Thats a great way to pick up new women, just add each new sugar mama’s name underneath 🙂

      1. Maybe new chick will be named Amber too. Then he can be all heyyyyyyy babe, I got your name tattooed on my arm!!

        1. To quote Eminem:
          “I knew I shouldn’t go and get another tattoo, of you on my arm but what do I go and do?
          I go and get another one now I got two, booooo.
          Now I’m sittin’ here with your name on my skin,
          I can’t believe I went and did this stupid sh*t again,
          My next girlfriend now her name’s gotta be Kim…Sh*ttttt.”

          1. “Amber” can be altered to be “GambLer” – I’m sure a decent tattoo artist can fit an “l” in there between the “b” and “e”

  3. It’s hard to believe he is dating someone new!!! Who in their right mind would date him?!?! He probably just said that cause he is upset that she got pregnant so fast especially after stating she couldn’t have anymore kids! Regardless I’m happy she left that piece if trash! She clearly didn’t get pregnant with Matt for a reason! Thank God! I am happy for her! She has come a very long way since her abusing Gary days and going to jail and beating addiction!

      1. Just a fyi, Manson never ended up getting married in prison.
        Google it. He was married twice but not after his infamous conviction.

  4. Im sorry for posting something off topic but i would really appreciate other womens advice.

    First time mommy trying to be here. Please please I am just wondering if any other moms can share their pregnancies at the beginning. I am a newlywed of a couple weeks and my husband and I had sex to get pregnant this time. Now anything I google is all the same. I am wondering what my chances were of getting pregnant if we had done it maybe more than 5 times since. But the thing is I had my period a couple days after getting married. So now I am nervous that it didn’t really grab hold. It has been since the 11th was the first time and the past 2 days I have had a tight or cramp like feeling in my lower abdominal area and also lower back pain. My period is due sometime between the 11th and 15th. I am hoping I am pregnant! But it has me worried that I will be infertile or something if I am not. It is freaking me out. No other signs yet though. And I never have cramps before my period only usually on that day i get it only.

    1. Make an appointment with a gynecologist. You shouldn’t be looking for answers here. Everyone is different.

    2. Sometimes you can cramp during ovulation and even have spotting. If it’s a week or so after your period that may be it. Also you have to worry about bladder infections, which may give you pain. You should call to a local health department and get an appointment. That way you are established w a center and can always go to them for proper medical advice. Hang in there and good luck! ?

      1. I suffered from frequent bladder infections when I first became consistently sexually active. That may be something for Olivia to look into. I second your suggestion that she see a gynecologist. It is always important to start seeing a gynecologist when you become sexually active to screen for STI/STDs, talk about pregnancy prevention, or just to learn about one’s body and it’s cycle.

    3. I like how I get downvoted for asking a question. It’s not a big deal. I just don’t have anyone close to ask questions or any girlfriends to even talk to. If someone asked a question I wouldn’t ignore of I had a thought. Even if it didn’t have anything to do with it. I only have my husband as my best friend again no one else. So it sucks to see even on a forum like this no one wants to respond to me

      1. This is a teen mom 2 forum. You’re asking this on an article about Matt Baier. This has nothing to do with pregnancy advice. If you need medical advice on pregnancy, go to a doctor or a pregnancy website. Conversely, would you go to web md and ask questions about Amber Portwood’s alleged pregnancy? Probably not, I’m guessing.

        1. So people don’t write comments on here going off topic about an experience similar to what an article is about? I have seen people talk about their parents and or this happens go so and so and it was somewhat related to the article. Amber is pregnant, I am trying. I literally go on this site multiple times a day and comment on most articles. I didn’t randomly stumble on the site and randomly talk about myself. I though people were nice enough to give an opinion. I thought I could get some comments for just chit chat instead of making an account on one of those pregnancy advice columns because I wasn’t play Bing on doing that. Again others talk about other things as well on here. I didn’t see it as a problem. Maybe it would be more of a community it on here for people to chit chat about things close to subjects instead Of being scummy.

          1. Don’t let it get to you so much, people are jerks. Instead of ignoring your questions, it’s makes people feel better to act out negatively. Of course you felt like you could ask on here, we read these same peoples comments everyday and almost feel like we know each other. There are so many horrible unhappy people in the world that try to hurt others for no reason. Good luck on your journey. Now you know which people to avoid on here. I got downvotes for wishing you luck. So to that, I say….good luck to you! ?

      2. Olivia – Try BabyCenter.com it is a forum for mothers and has lots of different boards where you can ask questions and get answers from other moms 🙂

    4. Unfortunately you aren’t considered infertile until you’ve actively tried to get pregnant for a year without success. So try not to stress about it and relax. If you’ve been on birth control your whole life you won’t know until you try if you’re infertile. Good luck to you and your husband!

    5. I would say it’s still too early to tell if you’re pregnant or not, especially if you only had a period less than two weeks ago. Maybe you’re experiencing ovulation pain? Don’t start worrying about being infertile just yet! It’ll do your head in! Sex will become a chore instead of a pleasurable experience for you both if you start down that road ? Honestly, as Shuna said, they don’t start questioning your fertility until you’ve been actively trying for over a year. That’s not taking into consideration how long you’ve been on birth control or your age though as well. Anyway, try not to stress as that won’t help, and just be prepared that it may not happen on your first month trying. Good luck though, take folic acid to prepare your body and seek medical advice when/if you’re concerned ?

    6. Sometimes people talk about their own experiences when it’s sort of related. For instance, if Amber would have said she’s been on an IUD like Mirena and accidentally got pregnant, people might respond that that is possible/unlikely etc. due to what they know about that situation (either from experience or profession), so it’s always related to the topic The Ashley posted.

      I am not going to downvote you for something like this (I only do that when things are hateful or ridiculously dumb), but I would recommend you to go to the pages or forums mentioned by others here. Talking about these things with people who badly want to talk about it too might be very helpful for you (emotionally) and talking to a physician too (physically, in case you don’t get pregnant within 1-2 years).

      Also, please don’t take downvoting personally, everyone gets downvoted sometimes 🙂

    7. Olivia, this is rather late responding so I don’t know if you’ll get it but I have been thinking about your comment. It sounds like you are a bit undereducated about your body and reproduction in general and so are seeking answers in a place you feel comfortable, The Ashley. People may be downvoting the irrelevance of your comment or they may be downvoting the fact that you have so many questions about your body and seem inexperienced, even as a married woman, who many assume should have already had a healthy variety and amount of sexual experience with your current partner and probably with others before him.

      In order to get pregnant, you have to have sex when you’re ovulating. If you had your period about one week after getting married, then you were probably not ovulating during the first days of your marriage. Ovulation will generally occur 1-2 weeks after your period. If you want to be completely in control and informed about your chances of getting pregnant when you have sex, may I suggest you buy a few ovulation tests. Have sex when you are ovulating. There are also a few early detection pregnancy tests that can detect pregnancy even before a missed period but they are not always accurate.

      Most women do not know they are pregnant until they have missed a period. If you have not yet missed a period, then I would not even worry or think about pregnancy yet. I know many women who are trying to get pregnant want to know right away, but you can’t really know. I don’t think there are any hard and fast statistics on the probability of getting pregnant each time you have sex because it depends on so many factors, so that information may not be out there yet. One of the earliest signs I had that I was pregnant was sore boobs. I do not remember cramping or back pain, but you could be different.

      This sounds horrible, but sometimes pain and lower back pain can be caused by an STI/STD. You have just started having sex with a new partner, you may want to be checked.

  5. It was either a lucky miss or she did at least think it through if she really wants to have a kid with this man. It’s prob the first but hey, maybe she was reasonable for a change! (Until she met Andrew and had a baby with him….so close)

  6. I don’t believe a word that comes out of Matt’s mouth. I know he’s pissed. Anyone would be pissed if they got dumped by someone they were with three years and then find out just 6 months later, they’re having a kid with someone else.

    1. He’s pissed he screwed up his meal ticket!!
      I wanted her to leave him but not jump this fast.
      I just shake my head and hope it works out

  7. You left out the part where he started crying and shouted out that it should have been him who was going to get bonus money from MTV. And how he sobbed that he’s tired of playing nickel slots, pushing his little grey haired girlfriend’s wheelchair around.
    He wouldn’t have minded changing his child’s diaper but his girlfriend’s is driving him crazy.
