Standing by her man! Fans were shocked last week when new allegations surrounding Amber Portwood’s fiancé, Matt Baier, came to light in the Teen Mom OG trailer. In the clip, which was released on December 10, Portwood’s ex Gary Shirley told a lawyer, “Her fiancé has seven kids and she don’t even know about this.”
Portwood, 25, didn’t seem shocked by this information in the clip, but was furious that Shirley, 29, would announce it on camera. On Wednesday, December 16, she took to Twitter to defend her fiancé of more than a year.
When one follower joked that Baier had seven secret kids, calling him “a catch,” the Teen Mom OG star shot back, “You would have to be ignorant to believe that honestly..he's a great catch thanks.”
She then added, “For anyone talking crap about this whole situation with Matt..this s–t isn't funny This is real life I have to deal with not entertainment. I'm not dealing with this negative immature bulls–t. I have enough to worry about. I'll block and be done with it. Love not hate learn it!”
Portwood, who introduced Baier to fans on the most recent season of Teen Mom OG, got engaged to him shortly after he moved in (which was shortly after they met). The radio DJ is 19 years her senior, but Portwood has no problem defending him.
“I don't care if I found out he had 10 kids,” she tweeted. “He has to deal with that and his past and I'll stand by him. But I'm a woman and I hold my own.”
The mother of 7-year-old Leah was released from jail in November 2013 and has been sober for more than three years now. She and the rest of the Teen Moms will return for another season of Teen Mom OG on MTV Monday, January 4, at 10 p.m. ET.
