Amber Portwood: Why I Changed My Mind About Having Another Baby

By Sophie Dweck and Carly Sloane November 8, 2017

A baby wasn’t supposed to be in Amber Portwood’s picture. Nine years after welcoming Leah at age 18, the star of MTV’s Teen Mom OG (season 7 premieres November 27, 9 p.m.) knew she couldn’t get pregnant. Diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder meant she had to be on medication that could harm a fetus.

But after calling off her wedding with Matt Baier and embarking on a new romance with Andrew Glennon four months ago, the Indiana native decided to ditch the pills. “I wanted to see if I was just unhappy because of the things that were going on in my life,” she explains in the new issue of Us Weekly. “I needed to see where I was in my head and it’s a beautiful thing because I just feel better. I feel happier and not so depressed.”

The star reveals that she decided to wean off the meds when she and Baier ended things. “It was rough, but it was a necessary thing to do,” she says. “I needed to see where I was in my head and it’s a beautiful thing because I just feel better.”
