Amber Portwood’s Fiance Addresses Bombshell Allegation He Secretly Fathered Seven Children on ‘Teen Mom OG’ Reunion

Teen mama drama! In a sneak peek of part 2 of the Teen Mom OG season 2 reunion, Amber Portwood’s fiancé, Matt Baier, is questioned about the bombshell allegation that he secretly fathered seven children.

As fans of the MTV series will recall, Portwood’s ex, Gary Shirley, unearthed documents earlier this season appearing to reveal Baier, 44, had multiple children with several different women in various states. When the engaged couple sat down with show host Dr. Drew, Baier was immediately forced to respond to Shirley’s alleged discovery.

“What do I think about what he said? I think he’s full of s–t, to be honest with you,” Baier retorts to the TV therapist in the clip. “Anytime he opened his mouth.”

Shirley, 29, made the claim while the Teen Mom OG cameras were rolling this season — a move that seriously unnerved Portwood, 25, and Baier. At the time, Shirley said he only went public with the information because he was worried about the safety of Leah, the 7-year-old daughter he shares with Portwood. However, Baier isn’t buying that.

“His motivation for doing what he did was not what he said. His motivation was different,” Baier argues in the preview. “If he had that motivation, he would have called her and said, ‘Hey, what’s going on with this?’ Instead, he purposely waited for the cameras.”

While it’s still unclear how many kids Baier actually has, he attempts to justify his past actions.

“It was more shame on myself because those are really painful memories for me, so I kind of pushed them aside,” the contrite Boston native explains. “I think it gets made to be more seedy than it really was. Like, ‘He had children when he was younger, and he abandoned them and disappeared.’ That’s not what happened.”

Regardless of what happened in Baier’s life before he proposed to Portwood, the reality star has already found it in her heart to forgive him.

“He was a womanizing user. He was an addict, and that’s not an excuse, but that’s the type of person he was,” she said earlier this year on the show. “We went through a rough patch because of this, because I had no trust in him anymore. We had to rebuild our trust again in our relationship.”

Watch the video above. Part 2 of the Teen Mom OG season 2 reunion airs on MTV Monday, March 7, at 10 p.m. EST.
