Matt Baier’s Wife Jennifer Conlon Also Has Shady Drug Past (UPDATE)
UPDATE (12/16/17 at 10:26 a.m. ET)
Matt Baier has had his own documented struggles with drug abuse, so it's especially alarming to hear his new wife is not only still allegedly using, but had a run-in with the law because of it.
Jennifer Conlon was arrested on DUI and drug charges after being involved in an accident on November 7, less than 3 weeks before the pair eloped in Las Vegas, according to Radar Online.
Jennifer was charged with a number of offenses including DUI and driving without a license.
In the police report, which you can read here, the police officer noted, “[Conlon] was involved in an accident prior to my arrival.
"[She] said she took medication. She answered slowly enough for me to notice.”
The 26-year-old pled not guilty to all charges and is due back in court in April 2018.
UPDATE 1 (12/1/17 at 8:57 a.m.):
It didn't take long for Matt Baier's new wife to speak out to the press about their new marriage, eh?
Jennifer Conlan, whom Amber Portwood's ex married at an impromptu Las Vegas ceremony earlier this week, is breaking her silence on their relationship, and explaining why her hubby is so misunderstood.
The 35-year-old acknowledged the wedding was quick, but said she just knew Matt was "The One."
“When you meet somebody and you have a connection, you know it in your heart,” Jennifer told Radar Online.
“It’s not something you question. It felt right to us. Getting married is something we wanted. We decided it was time, so he asked me to marry him.”
She also alluded to all those allegations against him, from his drug relapse to his baby mama (and child support) drama.
“Matt is a wonderful man,” she added.
“What people think of him and how he’s portrayed, that’s not the man he truly is. He is everything and more. He’s generous and loving,"
She concluded, “His past has nothing to do with the relationship. The life we have now is what we have now.
"Matt is a wonderful partner, friend and someone who listens. I take a person for who they are today and what they do now.”
Hey, Jen, that's what Amber said about him too. Just sayin'...

Original story (11/29/17 at 9:57 a.m.):
Well, here's one way to one-up his ex's pregnancy news...
And he tied the knot in true Matt fashion — at an impromptu ceremony in Las Vegas!
As Wetpaint reported, Amber officially dumped her boyfriend of three years in June after filming wrapped on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.
She was fed up with his lies, and eventually kicked him out of their shared Indiana home.
And though the 46-year-old never got to elope with Amber in Las Vegas like he so desperately wanted to, he found another bride who was a bit more... willing.
And the lucky lady's name is Jennifer Conlan, according to a marriage license obtained by E! News.
The groom tells the site he met the single mom of two (he has a type!) at a restaurant in Sin City, where he's been living (and gambling) since Amber broke up with him.
"She's not a public figure. So we kept our relationship private," he says.
After six months together, the idea of marriage "just came up" and he never officially proposed.
"It was one of those situations where it just kind of felt like the right thing," he gushes.
"We really get each other. We both have overcome a lot of stuff. It felt like the right thing to do. It just kind of happened that way."
The Ashley points out that this is the dad of five's third marriage yet fourth engagement — as TMOG fans saw on the show, he proposed to Amber just six months or so months into dating... at a diner, no less.
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old has all but moved on, too, as she and Andrew Glennon, a TV producer whom she met on the Marriage Boot Camp set, are expecting their first child together (Amber is already mom to 8-year-old daughter Leah with ex Gary Shirley).
We'll see the beginnings of the happy parents-to-be's new relationship — and the crumbling of Amber and Matt's — on the new season of TMOG!
