As we reported, the trailer for the new season of Teen Mom OG was released and it showed Baier popping the question to the 24-year-old before the cameras cut away.
Well now, we officially know she said yes! And it turns out that they have been committed ever since last November!
According to Leah's mom:
"We are very happy… I've never felt this way about somebody else in my life."
However, this wedding news is not without controversy. Many sceptics felt that the proposal wasn't genuine and it was all for the show's storyline!
Miz Portwood disputes such claims:
"I don't stage things for [the cameras]… 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. It's our lives to help others — it's not just for TV."
The former prison inmate also addresses the couple's rumored on-again, off-again status:
"I think people are trying to compare this relationship with mine and Gary [Shirley]'s in the past, and it doesn't even compare… People just need to accept that I'm happy, and I have a good life with my fiancé now."
Congratulations to Amber and Matt on this exciting news — maybe the cameras will capture their wedding too?!
