Amber Portwood kicked off 2018 with more monster mom moves. Fans ripped the Teen Mom OG star for posting a photo of her 9-year-old daughter Leah in bed with her new boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
“Bringing in the New Years right with healthy food lol Happy New Years everyone! Sending all our love from my little growing family to yours,” she captioned a photo of Leah and Glennon lying in bed.
Followers were quick to slam Portwood, 27, for allowing her daughter and Glennon to get close so soon.
“It’s uncomfortable,” one user wrote. “He hasn’t been in her life long. It LOOKS like they’re in a bed.”
A second hater fired, “I like Amber and I said she’s come a long way. But she brings men into her daughter’s life seemingly quickly and to see this girl next to a man she knows less than 8 months I’m going to say even under a year.”
A third follower wrote, “Having her in bed next to a grown man like that is way too weird.”
Portwood responded to the backlash, “Anybody saying this is weird needs to look at themselves. You are f***ing disgusting if your head goes straight to filth. We are a happy and loving family. We don’t need ignorant people commenting on our pictures.”
Portwood began dating Glennon in July after splitting ex-fiancé Matt Baier. They are expecting a baby boy together.
The MTV star came under fire for seeing her daughter Leah only two times in the summer because of her depression over her split with Baier.
“Leah is not ‘your world,” a user wrote. “You have chosen anything and everything over her – just be happy she has Kristina – who is her real mother,” one user said.
A second ripped, “But we all still see our children everyday. That shouldn’t even be an option. You pull yourself together for your kids. Show them how to handle things properly when it happens to them.”
Portwood responded at the time, “I’m sick and tired of these comments about my daughter. Leah is my world and SHE knows it! That’s what matters! People go through horrible times when they split and I’m no exception! I was depressed and horribly sad so I did the best thing and made sure my daughter was protected.”
On this week’s episode, Portwood started seeing her daughter again because she felt better after she began dating Glennon.
“That was the Matt situation because we completely broke up,” she told her baby daddy Gary Shirley. “I got pretty bad. I didn’t want to be around Leah like that. I just wasn’t feeling very well. I just now started dating. I don’t want to cry in front of her. I don’t want her to see me like this. I’m starting to get better.”
