On last night’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber Portwood introduced the world to her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. As we all know, Amber is expecting a baby boy with Andrew later this year. This was our first look into their relationship on the popular MTV series. Andrew and Amber met on Marriage Boot Camp, where Andrew worked as a member of the production team.
In a conversation with an MTV producer, Amber said, “There’s a person that I’ve been talking to for a little bit. We met … in a weird way, I guess. “He’s coming out for a few days just to hang out and get to know each other.”
Apparently, Andrew was in charge of the lights on Marriage Boot Camp. When Andrew arrived for his visit with Amber, he also sat down with an MTV producer and said that, “I got to learn a lot about her on the show. “The first day, I was in the interview room with her and that’s when I think I learned the most.” In turn, Amber said that it was very nice to have Andrew visiting and it was a good distraction from the “bullsh*t”. She also said she was in a “bad depression mode for a bit until he came.”
It sounds like although Amber moved forward with a new relationship, she still struggles with her relationship with her daughter Leah, whom she shares with ex, Gary Shirley. Gary mentioned that Amber had not been to visit in a while and Amber got upset about this, telling Gary that she did not want Leah to see her upset over her break up with Matt.
Gary tried to be understanding but also seemed frustrated that Amber wasn’t putting their daughter first and focusing more on herself. He specifically said, “Amber’s not there, she’s a come-and-go kind of mom.” “There’s a pattern here, it’s not a one-year pattern, it’s a four to a five-year pattern.”
