Amber Portwood had nothing but good things to say about her fiancé, Matt Baier, just prior to their alleged split. In fact, during an interview with Brandi Glanville earlier this month, the Teen Mom OG star gushed over her “bad***” future husband.
While appearing on the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s Podcast series, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, Amber Portwood explained why their often tumultuous relationship works just fine for the two of them.
“There’s a reason why we’re together. First of all, because he’s a bada** mother f***er, okay?” she explained, according to a report by In Touch Weekly magazine on May 22. “Nobody knows this…Me? Come on now. Everything I’ve been through, you think I’m going to be with some — I’m naive? We’ve broken up — I don’t know how many damn times we’ve broken up, you know?”
Amber Portwood has been accused of being naive on numerous occasions, especially after it was revealed that Baier had allegedly fathered more children than he previously admitted. As fans of Teen Mom OG may recall, Amber Portwood’s ex-fiance, Gary Shirley, presented her with documents during filming that allegedly proved Baier had two secret children. Meanwhile, a report by Radar Online in March of last year claimed the reality star fathered a whopping nine children with seven different women.
All the while, Amber Portwood has continued to support Matt Baier. However, that said, the couple did call off their October 2016 wedding and have reportedly put their October 2017 wedding on hold as well.
“He’s been back to Massachusetts a couple times and came back because we love each other. Like it ain’t nothing,” Amber Portwood continued to Brandi Glanville, “but we get through it. Either, you move on because somebody did something in their past, or, you know, you stay with them, you know?…And I said, ‘Amber, look at your life. Look at his life. Let’s talk. Let’s do this.'”
Even Brandi Glanville seemed impressed with Amber Portwood and Matt Baier’s relationship and told the Teen Mom OG star that Baier was very sweet with her.
“He really compliments you and he’s very proud of you, and the way he talks, it’s very sweet,” Glanville said. “He is so proud to be next to you, and it’s just really sweet.”
A short time after Amber Portwood’s interview with Brandi Glanville, Radar Online claimed the reality star called off her engagement after Matt Baier allegedly failed a lie detector test. At the same time, however, a source close to Baier insisted he hadn’t failed the test.
While Amber Portwood and Matt Baier have been playing coy with regard to the current status of their relationship since the split rumors began swirling earlier this month, their wedding is said to be on hold.
“For the time being, Matt and Amber’s engagement is on hold. They are working on their relationship,” a source told E! News.
“A lot has come out through the course of filming and from various online stories. That has added extra pressure and made things difficult. They’ve both been open about their personal struggles, but it hasn’t been easy when their lives are under such heavy scrutiny. Despite their issues, they are still living together and are hopeful things can be fixed.”
