Amber Portwood, a popular Teen Mom member, is feeling good in her new lifestyle, leading to some changes in her body. She recently took over Instagram with a Reel showing off her new bod and new found confidence.
Pantless For The Gram
On July 1, Portwood shared a video of herself in a tight-fitted short dress and black knee-high boots. In the Reel she has her legs crossed as she moves the camera around to show off her look.
She captioned the post, "5 lbs down with my new lifestyle of healthy eating and just focusing on self love and care."
Portwood also shared that had a lovely start to her day writing, "🎶Music and a little ☀️sun in my loft was perfect this morning."
One of her co-stars, Briana DeJesus, commented fire emoji's to Portwood's video.
Fans of the reality TV star also rushed to the comment section to show love.
One user wrote, "yes girl happiness and self care suits you x"
A second said, "Love your outfit!!"
Another chimed in, "You look amazing and happy! But you've always been gorgeous!"
A fourth commented on the amount of leg showing, "Why isn't she wearing pants? It looks like she has on teeny shorts! Whoa!"
The Next Chapter
Portwood recently celebrated her birthday with some of her best gals/ co-stars. In the videos of them together, crew members are spotted, leaving us to believe that they were also filming for the new MTV show, Teen Mom: The Next Chapter. This new series will be a merge of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2, focusing on the women at their current "stages of motherhood."
The network noted, "Some have kids in diapers, while others are now parenting teenagers! But they all share the unique experience of momming so young. For the first time, the moms and all their stories will be brought together in one supersized series that focuses on the unique bond they share as they face the reality of parenthood and adulting while entering new phases of life together."
MTV has yet to release a premiere date and the full cast list, so stay tuned for those details as they unravel.
Bettering Herself One Step At A Time
Like Portwood wrote in her caption, she's been working on bettering her lifestyle. At the end of June her criminal record officially became clean, taking her another step in the right direction.
At 3 a.m. on Friday, July 5, 2019, Amber Portwood was arrested by Indianapolis police after a "disturbance" call was made. According to a previous article from The Ashley's "Arriving officers say the male victim told them his live-in-girlfriend assaulted him while he was holding their one-year-old child." The Teen Mom star had several felony charges following her domestic abuse crimes against her baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.
Following her arrest in July, Portwood "took a plea deal, which stated that she had to successfully complete 906 days of probation," according to The Ashley's. The mom of two was mandated to complete substance abuse and mental health evaluations as well as taking court-ordered parenting classes and participate in Batterers' Intervention Program. And that wasn't it. Portwood also had to undergo random urine and breath testing, pay a fine and follow other strict orders.
In April, she completed her plea agreement and probation terms, pushing her lawyer to file a petition to have the plea agreement enforced. This means, her charge of Domestic Battery (with a prior conviction) to be dismissed, and her charge of "Intimidation- Habitual Felony Offender Enhancement" (a Level 6 felony) reduced to a misdemeanor.
The "No Contact" order between Portwood and Glennon was also dropped which was put in place in October 2019. Prior to this, the co-parents were only allowed to communicate through a court-approved custody app when it involved their four-year-old son, James.
