Amber Portwood has been dating Matt Baier for a few years and it seems like they are happy. It is uncertain whether Amber has met his children, because she was under the impression that he only had two children. But Amber’s ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley decided to do some digging and he discovered that Matt was being sued for child support – for 7 children! For a while, there were several reports claiming that he had about 8 children, but he’s now revealing the correct number. According to a new report, Amber Portwood is now learning that Matt Baier has five children.
“I have five children,” Matt told In Touch, adding that “all of them have come from long-term relationships. There are not seven child support cases against me — that is completely not true. I paid child support for all my kids.”
He also revealed that Portwood has met all of his children and that everyone gets along. Even Leah has met the younger kids, meaning she’s met her half-sisters and half-brothers. The shocking news? His children range from 13 years old to 25 years old. And he’s a grandfather to three children.
It is shocking that Matt has children that are 25 years old, because Amber herself is just 25. In other words, he’s dating a woman the same age as his own children. Matt is 44. Even though this is shocking news to some, Amber seems to be fine with the news. She may have been shocked when she learned of the child support payments, and she even hinted that he could be a deadbeat dad. But she seems to have forgotten about his past and has moved on.
What do you think of Amber Portwood accepting Matt’s past? Are you surprised that he has children her age?
