‘Teen Mom OG’: Fans Aren’t Happy About Amber Portwood’s Pregnancy Tease

Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood can be heard teasing that she might be pregnant again on a clip previewing this week’s episode. She’s carrying a bag of gifts and tells the camera: “I might be pregnant again.”

Portwood, at the moment, has two children, including one with her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. Portwood and Glennon had their son James in May 2018. Portwood had her other child, her daughter Leah, with her ex-boyfriend, Gary Shirley.

After Portwood’s admission in the preview, we can see Shirley roll his eyes and her mother, Tonya Portwood, ask her when she’s going to marry Glennon. Amber doesn’t look very pleased by her mother’s question but the preview ends before we can see the discussion that follows. 

‘Teen Mom OG’ fans negatively react to Amber Portwood’s pregnancy tease 

After the preview debuted, many Teen Mom fans took to social sites to voice their opinions about Portwood’s possible pregnancy. 

“This show is [too] much. Give a baby up. Dad has custody of another one. And here we go again having another baby,” one fan wrote on Facebook. “This show is really the [opposite] of what they we’re trying for. When are they going to stop making it seem ok to have babies when [they’re] not in the right state of mind. They can’t keep a relationship with one man. Stop while your ahead…. Please…Children are not accessories.”

“She [can’t] handle being up with the baby early in the morning while her husband recovers from minor surgery for maybe a week at the most. She should wait until [she’s] more mature and responsible to bring another baby in to the world,” wrote another.

“Since this was filmed months ago, I doubt she’s pregnant. We would know by now,” one fan pointed out.

Amber Portwood has incorrectly thought she was pregnant before

During a November 2018 episode, Portwood had a hunch she may be pregnant. She was on a trip to New York City to meet up with Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout, Cheyenne Floyd, and Bristol Palin. She told Glennan that she wasn’t feeling well and she was worried the reason may be that she was pregnant. 

“It feels like my stomach is just achy. I swear to God, if you got me pregnant,” she said to him.

Portwood told Us Weekly that she’s potentially interested in having another child with Glennon at some point in the future. So if she is pregnant this time, this could be a happy accident for Portwood and Glennon.  

“If it happened, I wouldn’t be mad. There are many things I would do differently with Andrew. I wouldn’t wait to get married. I wouldn’t wait for anything! He’s my soulmate and he’s a beautiful person,” she said. “I don’t see anybody else I could even, like, mesh with after him. I might have another kid with him.”
