That’s the burning question Teen Mom OG fans are asking after Amber shared an adorable photo of her daughter Leah’s writing — and the eight-year-old refers to her mom’s fiancé Matt as her “stepdad” multiple times!
“My stepdad’s mac and cheese is the best,” Leah wrote. “My stepmom’s name is Kristina [Anderson], my dad’s name is Gary [Shirley], my mom’s name is Amber, and my stepdad’s name is Matt.”
“When did you guys get married?” one fan asked, and another wrote, “Stepdad?? So are y’all married already?”
Amber and Matt have been engaged since November 2014, and fans got to see his proposal during an episode of the MTV reality series. Their relationship stirred up a ton of controversy since they first met on Twitter during the summer of that year — first because of their 20-year age difference. Then their quick engagement caused concern for Amber’s ex-fiancé Gary — and he even accused Matt of having seven children and claimed that he’s wanted in court for unpaid child support.
The 26-year-old refused to believe Gary’s accusations, but she briefly called off their engagement after Matt confessed to hitting on her Teen Mom franchise co-stars Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans before they started dating.
But the couple was able to work through their issues — and they’re still going strong today. Just last month, they sparked rumors of a possible elopement when Matt posted a photo of a chapel on Instagram and announced that they were headed off to Vegas — but he quickly cleared up the confusion.
“[Thank you] everyone for ur well wishes but it’s not our wedding. It’s for our good friends Wayne and Annette,” the 45-year-old wrote.
