27-year-old Teen Mom star Amber Portwood took to Instagram to announce that she is pregnant with her second child! Portwood first stepped into the limelight as a cast member of MTV's 16 and Pregnant and then Teen Mom after the birth of her now 8-year-old daughter Leah.

News of baby no. 2 may come as a surprise to fans of Teen Mom OG after Portwood was open about her decision to not have more children (due to medications she was taking for borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder). Us Weekly reports that Portwood stopped taking the medications 3 months ago after splitting from former fiancé Matt Baier.
“After the initial shock, it was nothing but happy thoughts and just enjoying my time with my boyfriend,” Portwood told Us Weekly. “We’re both very happy.”
Congratulations to the couple—we wish you well in all your adventures to come!
