EXCLUSIVE: Amber Portwood Can’t Have More Children, Fiance Speaks
Last night on Teen Mom OG was quite an emotional one for star Amber Portwood, as she revealed why she can’t have more children.
“I just got re-diagnosed for Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder, and I’ve been taking three medications now that I need to take for the rest of my life,” Portwood revealed in the episode. “I can’t, I can’t get pregnant on this medication.”
“I can get pregnant, but it would mess up the fetus,” she elaborated. “If I do not have medication, I will not be normal. I would have … crazy mood swings.”
We talked to her fiance, Matt Baier, about Portwood’s big- and personal- reveal on the episode.
“Amber is an amazing mom and having another child would be a blessing, but her mental health is far more important,” Baier exclusively shared with us.
“Amber’s overall health is the most important thing to me,” he added.
Baier wrapped with saying that, “If it happened, it would be a blessing, but our family is perfect the way it is right now.”
While we sympathize with how tough it must be for Portwood to talk about this, we continue to wish her good health.
