"He proposed in November, and she accepted," an insider told RadarOnline, but there is reportedly more to the story than meets the eye.

Portwood has cleaned up her life and appears to be in a much better place, but apparently her relationship with Baier (who is 20 years her senior) is far from stable, which is something that she probably needs in her life right now.

The insider also told the publication that the pair fights often, saying, "They have a very tumultuous relationship. They get into big fights and Matt says he's moving out. But then hours later, they act like everything is fine."

However, Portwood has denied these claims about her beau. Taking to Twitter on Monday, she poked fun at the RadarOnline article and their source.
