Amber Portwood’s October wedding has officially been postponed.
The Teen Mom star put her relationship with Matt Baier on hold until further notice. Did Portwood call off the ceremony because of Baier’s shady past?
Fans expected to watch Portwood walk down the aisle in the coming season of Teen Mom OG. However, during an interview with People, Portwood revealed her relationship with Baier is going to slow down in the coming season.
“You see us take a back burner this season, honestly,” Portwood explained. “There’s been so much talk about me and Matt the last season that we kind of stay a little private, but it’s hard to stay private when everything is out in the open.”
Portwood’s romance with Baier was going great until she uncovered shocking details about his past. Baier has several children with different women and hasn’t paid child support over the years.
After she discovered Baier’s secret, the Hollywood Gossip is reporting that Portwood decided to put a hold on the nuptials.
“Everything got thrown on the back burner when stuff happened,” Portwood admitted. “But you’ll see us working through certain things together and you’ll see us talking about marriage and what we’re going to do.”
The wedding was originally planned for October 10. However, it isn’t known if Portwood is still planning on marrying Baier or if their relationship is headed for a breakup.
Whatever happens, Perez Hilton is reporting that fans will watch it all unfold when the new season of Teen Mom OG hits television.
In fact, Amber Portwood admitted that she had a hard time discerning the truth after reports of Baier’s past surfaced. Fortunately, she kept a cool head and thought about everything before reacting.
“Honestly, I tried to stay neutral in the whole situation because I didn’t know what was going on yet. I didn’t know what the truth was. I didn’t want to make a rash decision on something that everyone else was saying,” she stated. “You will see in this season me making my decision on what I was going to do with me and Matt.”
Baier previously shared that his wife-to-be knew everything about his past. Clearly, Portwood was taken by surprise by the illegitimate children scandal, and it wouldn’t be surprising if she ends her relationship with Baier in the near future.
Of course, there is also the possibility that the drama will strengthen their relationship and allow them to be more honest moving forward. Whether or not this leads to another wedding is anyone’s guess.
Meanwhile, a new preview for the upcoming season reveals that Portwood’s wedding will be a major storyline on Teem Mom OG.
According to Starcasm, the preview features Portwood confirming her wedding with Baier, saying, “The next step for me and Matt is to get married.”
That being said, the reality star later questioned herself and was obviously frustrated with how things turned out.
“All of his crazy exes are coming out,” she said.
Apart from the wedding drama, Portwood and Baier are preparing to sit down with Dr. Drew to discuss online bullying and clear the air about their engagement.
“[This season] you’ll see us talking about everything in the media and getting the truth out there, and we’re actually about to go to the Dr. Drew show to talk about online bullying,” Portwood revealed.
Ironically, Baier has been accused of being an online bully himself after his comments about several co-stars on the hit show.
