Amber Portwood Wants To Have Healthy Baby Boy In May

The cast of MTV's Teen Mom has had us captivated since the very first episode aired in 2011, showing the trials and tribulations of young mothers as they navigate raising children. While some of the cast have gone through some hardships, there's nothing we like more than a good success story. Amber Portwood has been through the ringer during her time on the show, even spending some time in jail for drug possession and domestic violence charges. Now sober and with her life back on track, Amber is expecting her second child with boyfriend Andrew Glennon.


Taking to Instagram to celebrate her blossoming bump, Portwood posted a side by side pic of herself and Glennon reading a book. "Andrew reading his baby book and me making sure little James is a healthy boy! #Lifeisbeautiful," the star captioned the picture. The 27-year-old revealed her baby news in December, with Glennon telling his followers via his Instagram page that the little one is due May 13th. Amber has been vocal about her struggles with bipolar and borderline personality disorder in the past, speaking recently with People about her concerns with taking medication while pregnant, and if she could be prone to postpartum depression.

"I had a concern with my depression when I went in and talked to my doctor, and it was a concern that postpartum was something that could happen because of how I'm doing right now." Portwood decided to continue to take her antidepressant medication, with the full support of boyfriend Andrew and her doctors. "I kind of just want to nip it in the bud before anything gets too bad or you go into a really deep depression, which is not good for me right now, obviously. I'm 33 weeks pregnant."

With not long to go before she has baby no.2, a son called James, the reality personality is keeping her followers updated on her progress. Amber explained how she met Andrew on an episode of Teen Mom OG, revealing that Glennon was the light technician when she was partaking in Marriage Boot Camp with ex fiancée Matt Bauer. Fans were glad to see the soon to be mother-of-two ditch Bauer for good. He went on to marry another woman a few short months after the split.

Let's hope this time it's the real thing for Amber.
