We’re not sure Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood necessarily needed or wanted romantic advice from ex Gary Shirley, but he’s weighing in anyway! Amber Portwood rebounded from her breakup with fiancé Matt Baier with a new guy, Andrew Glennon, and Gary’s not sure that’s the best idea.
“I think she is less controlled now,” he tells In Touch exclusively. “With Matt, I think she needed to take time to heal, but it's her life, not mine.”
Amber certainly won’t have a lot of time for any self-reflection in the upcoming months — she’s pregnant with Andrew’s baby! The reality star announced the news in a Nov. 3 Instagram post, saying, “I’m very excited for my future with Andrew and our little family we are starting together!”
Granted, Amber seems aware of all the side-eye she’s getting by moving on so fast. She has had to go on the defensive when she talked about Andrew, claiming they started dating three months after she and Matt hit the skids. (For the record, they met while she was filming _Marriage Boot Camp _in Los Angeles.)
Gary probably wasn’t thrilled to learn of Andrew’s brushes with the law, either — two arrests and one restraining order — but he’s also reserving some judgement. “I don’t know him [well] enough,” he exclusively told In Touch in August. “I’m not saying she should’ve waited on him. I think she should’ve dated. I think the last time they talked — I don’t know what they’re doing — but I think he was trying to relocate or something. I think she should’ve stayed single longer and really gotten to know herself and get over someone before getting with someone else because that’s how you do it, man. The correct way. You don’t need someone to make you feel like you’re living.”
We’ll keep you posted if (and, more likely, when) Amber responds. What Gary said may be true, but our guess is that Amber already feels like she’s living!
