Congrats are in order! ‘Teen Mom’ star Amber Portwood is headed for the altar with her new fiance, Matt Baier, and she couldn’t be happier about it! Matt popped the question with a gorgeous diamond stunner — see it here!
Amber Portwood, 24, and Matt Baier had fans on the edge of their seats when they teased their proposal in an emotional new trailer for Teen Mom OG. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait another second to find out her answer — which was a very enthusiastic YES!
Amber Portwood Engaged To Matt Baier: See Her Engagement Ring
Amber has come a long way since 16 and Pregnant! The reality star, who was also featured on Teen Mom and the upcoming Teen Mom OG, is taking the plunge with her boyfriend Matt, she confirmed to MTV News on March 2.
“We are very happy. I’ve never felt this way about somebody else in my life,” she gushed.
Amber also shared the above photo of her stunning engagement ring in a little black box. Although it’s hard to make out the details from this angle, it appears to be a square cut diamond with smaller diamonds on each side — gorg!
It must have been so hard for Amber to sit on this happy news! Matt actually popped the question in November, after which the couple fell victim to reports that their engagement was staged for the cameras, she tells MTV News.
“I don’t stage things for [the cameras],” Amber said. “I live my life. MTV follows me — I don’t follow them.
“Everything that is seen on ‘Teen Mom OG’ is our lives, and this is the way it is. We’ve never tried to do anything to please others,” she added. “It’s our lives to help others — it’s not just for TV.”
Amber Portwood: ‘I Have A Good Life’ Now
We’re so glad to see Amber settled, sober and happy after everything she’s been through — including drug problems, a stint in jail and a tumultuous relationship with Gary Shirley, her ex-boyfriend and the father of her 6-year-old daughter, Leah.
Amber told MTV News that her relationship with Matt is super strong, denying rumors that the couple were “on and off.”
“I think people are trying to compare this relationship with mine and Gary’s in the past, and it doesn’t even compare,” she explained. “People just need to accept that I’m happy, and I have a good life with my fiancé now.”
Well, we’re incredibly happy for Amber and Matt! Are YOU, HollywoodLifers? And do you love Amber’s engagement ring? Sound off in the comments section below!
