This is so exciting! Pregnant Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood previously revealed the baby name of her and Andrew Glennon‘s unborn son — and she just exclusively told In Touch why they chose James Andrew Glennon.
“It’s Andrew’s father’s name who passed. Andrew was very close to his father. That’s the main reason he got into cinematography — his father and his grandfather,” she shared. “He really wanted to honor his father and I thought that was a beautiful thing. I even was thinking of putting my dad’s middle name in there, but my brother is named after my dad so we just went with James Andrew Glennon. It means a lot and I love the name.”
Awe Bubby I can't wait!! I'm sure little James will love it!🤗

We first learned of her baby’s name on Twitter back in January during a sweet exchange with her brother, Shawn Portwood. “@AmberLPortwood I finally completed your gift. However I’m not going to show it to you so you’ll see it tomorrow. I will send you this though,” he wrote. Amber then replied, “Awe Bubby I can’t wait!! I’m sure little James will love it!”
Amber and Andrew first met while she filmed Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars: Family Edition with her ex-fiancé, Matt Baier — as Andrew worked in production on the WeTV reality series. They announced their pregnancy back in November on her Instagram account. “Thank you everyone for all the kind words,” she captioned the below image. “I’m very excited for my future with Andrew and our little family we are starting together! Love always.” Shortly thereafter, they revealed their bundle of joy is a boy.
The MTV personality — who also has a nine-year-old daughter, Leah, from her relationship with Gary Shirley — shocked fans with her pregnancy. “I’m so excited and I’m anxious. I’m nervous too because I don’t have a baby boy. I don’t know how to clean properly,” she joked.
“I’m gonna have to call Maci [Bookout] to know what to do. God, I love Maci. That’s my girl. She helped me out during pregnancy with this lemon water thing, so that helped my tummy out a little bit. She’s such a sweetheart. I’m nervous about taking care of a boy and raising a boy, but I think it’s gonna be so fun. I love how I’ll have a little boy and a little girl now. That’s just perfect to me, honestly.”
