The Real Reason Amber Is Pregnant Now?

Amber Portwood

Amber talked a lot in the last season about she simply didn't want to have another kid, partially because of her mental health issues and the need to remain on her psychiatric medications but also, partially because she just didn't feel ready.

Then of course, she broke up with Matt and called off her engagement.

Now, sources are reporting that Amber is pregnant.

So what's changed?

One hypothesis is that Amber is desperate to make things work with Andrew and form a concrete bond between them - what better way to do that than with a baby, is always the imagined belief of a teen mom, of course.

A second possibility is that Amber wants to rev up her businesses and the publicity from another pregnancy could really help. Let's face it, once the "Farrah got fired" furor dies down, viewers are going to focus on amber. So, getting more of a spotlight could do a lot for Amber's career on Teen Mom.

Let's look at another scenario: Birth control just doesn't matter to someone like Amber, and given her diagnosis of borderline personality, impulsivity is a major issue.

Who's taking bets on exactly why Amber got pregnant now? Let us know in the comments below.
