Amber Portwood wasn't quite sure if she should take her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, to Sunday night's 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
Just weeks after the couple's romance was first confirmed, the Teen Mom OG star was admittedly hesitant to make her red carpet debut with the Marriage Boot Camp staff member.
“We’ve only been dating for three weeks and it just so happened that the VMAs were coming up, so I was like, ‘Let’s do it,’” Portwood explained to Us Weekly magazine during the Republic Records After Party at TAO in Hollywood on August 27. “[I’m] a little nervous, you know? Because he’s, like, coming into my life and I don’t know what he’s gonna expect, but usually I come here to have fun. That’s what it’s all about.”
Portwood and Glennon met during filming on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition, where she and her ex-fiance, Matt Baier, were attempting to salvage their troubled relationship. As Us Weekly revealed, Glennon was serving on set as a lighting technician and began dating Portwood two weeks after filming wrapped.
“We decided that we wanted to be friends at first because we were just having so much fun talking with each other and, you know, then when he came out to hang out, we just had even more fun together, so that’s just kind of how it started,” she said.
As for how the two spend their time together, Portwood described their ideal date.
“We like to go to downtown Indiana and just walk around,” the boutique owner said. “We just like to have a good time together. It’s like at the beginning of the relationship you don’t want to take anything too, too seriously, but it’s just been moving and going so well. I’m really happy.”
Amber Portwood and her co-stars, including Farrah Abraham, Catelynn Lowell, and Maci Bookout, are currently in production on the upcoming seventh season of Teen Mom OG.
