When you’re on a show called Teen Mom OG, you’re bound to be the victim of the ol’ baby and pregnancy rumor mill at least twice a year — but it should come as a surprise to no one that when Amber Portwood found herself at the center of the latest rumors, she took matters into her own hands!
“I am not pregnant lol promise,” she tweeted late last month.
Apparently the rumor got started again after Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans shared an article on an Instagram story about the 27-year-old — who is proud mama to eight-year-old Leah with her ex Gary Shirley — proclaiming her to be with child.
On the most recent season of Teen Mom OG, Amber opened up about how her mental health and medication makes it nearly impossible — and incredibly dangerous — for her to have another child.
“I just found out that I got re-diagnosed with borderline personality and bipolar disorder, and I’ve been taking three different medications that now I’m going to have to take for the rest of my life,” she explained. “I can get pregnant, but it would mess up the fetus.”
In the same scene, her on-again, off-again fiancé Matt Baier agreed, “She’d have to get off the medication right away, and her mental health is much more important than that right now.”
Many fans are likely relieved to hear that Amber doesn’t plan on expanding her family anytime soon — as things have been particularly rocky for her and Matt as of late.
Every day, there seems to be a new update when it comes to whether they are together or not — but most recently, he seemed to deny any and all breakup rumors with a sappy post on Instagram.
He shared a picture of them smooching and wrote, “I got you bae,” before calling her his “woman crush everyday.”
