But Portwood doesn’t just want any old barn wedding. According to rumors, she plans on inviting a film crew and, thus, all her fans, because she wants the event televised and paid for by MTV.
“Amber really likes the idea of a TV wedding,” a Teen Mom insider told In Touch. “It’s going to be such a special moment in her life, and Amber really wants to share it with her fans.”
“She hopes MTV will film her wedding so that they can help her foot the bill,” the insider continued.
MTV has yet to confirm any of these plans or announce a Teen Mom OG wedding special, but Portwood allegedly wants to walk down the aisle this fall.
A TV wedding is far from the only project Portwood has in the pipeline. She announced on Wednesday on Twitter that she’ll be heading back to school in April.
Officially starting school April 7th…so excited and ready to move forward with my life..sending love💜
No word yet what, specifically, she plans to study.
Portwood confirmed her engagement to Baier, a professional poker player, at the beginning of March, following a Teen Mom OG trailer that showed the two getting engaged.
“My life now with my new fiancé is amazing,” she told E! News.
But contrary to In Touch‘s report that Portwood can’t wait to walk down the aisle, the reality star recently told People magazine that she’s taking her time with the engagement. “We wanted to be engaged for at least a year before we really jump into anything. We want everything in place.”
No matter which rumor is true, hopefully the engagement and Portwood’s return to school signal a new start for her. She spent 17 months behind bars for a drug possession charge in 2011.
Catch a new episode of Teen Mom OG Monday at 10 p.m. on MTV.
