Original story (8/11/17 at 12:00 p.m. ET):
Girl’s gone and gotten herself a new body — and now a new man, too.
Amber Portwood, who officially announced her split from Matt Baier last month, has moved on quite quickly to a new rebound, as she’s been spotted in her hometown getting PDA with a new mystery man!
And we could not be more thrilled.
Teen Mom OG fans are all too familiar with Amber and Matt’s complicated relationship. Though there were red flags about the 19-years-older Matt from the beginning, the two were together for three years and even got engaged.
But after infidelity rumors, never-ending lies, him stealing her money, two postponed wedding dates and too much baby mama drama to handle, the reality star officially ended things with her Teen Mom-obsessed beau.
She broke up with him earlier this summer after they wrapped filming on WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp.
Though Leah’s mama feared she’d never find love again after the breakup, it looks like she’s at least found lust, as she’s been spotted with a mystery man at a marina in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Radar Online has video of the cute new couple getting handsy with each other before sharing a kiss.
Not much is known about the guy in the clip, except that he is very tall, has a thing for large-brimmed cowboy hats and, as the site points out, looks way more age-appropriate for 27-year-old Amb than 46-year-old Matt was!
The mom of one hasn’t yet said anything about this guy on social media, but we’d expect nothing less, as it took her months to introduce Matt to her followers back in 2014, too.
We also imagine she’ll take things slow since she’s only been single for a few weeks, and since she likely doesn’t want to introduce a new guy to her 8-year-old daughter, Leah, until she knows it’s the real deal.
But new love interest aside, the Never Too Late author seems happy as can be since her split.
For one, she’s still working on her fitness and has been flaunting her impressive weight loss on social media.
Look what you’re missing, Matt!
Meanwhile, though the former couple is reportedly still in contact, the dad of five (ish) has moved out of their shared home and set up shop in Las Vegas, where it seems he’s been doing a whole lot of gambling
that MTV money.
Though he originally denied there was trouble in paradise and even said their wedding, originally planned for October 13, 2017, was merely “private” rather than canceled, he certainly can no longer deny they’re over.
Rumor has it MTV is currently in production for Teen Mom OG Season 7, so we’re pretty psyched to see this all play out on-screen!
Because honestly, we are so over this...
What do you think of Amber finally moving on? Will this prove to Matt that it’s really over? Tell us below.
