Teen Mom's Amber Portwood Expecting Second Child
A source confirms to PEOPLE she is telling family she is pregnant with baby no 2.
The reality star is already mother to 8-year-old daughter Leah, with ex Gary Shirley.
During season 6 of the MTV reality series, Portwood got emotional while revealing the reality of her re-diagnosis for Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder and the effects it could have on a pregnancy.
Portwood told an MTV producer that having children with Baier had crossed her mind, but it wouldn’t be possible.
“I just got re-diagnosed for Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder, and I’ve been taking three medications now that I need to take for the rest of my life,” she said. “I can’t, I can’t get pregnant on this medication.”
She clarified, saying she could conceive and carry children but her medications “would mess up the fetus.”
“If I do not have medication, I will not be normal,” she said. “I would have … crazy mood swings.”

Portwood and Baier broke up while filming Marriage Boot Camp earlier this summer following three years together. In May, a source told PEOPLE that their fall wedding was off.
They hit a rough patch last August when reports surfaced that Baier was facing legal trouble for failing to paying child support to multiple other women for several secret biological children.
