Portwood exclusively told Us Weekly on Friday, November 3, that she was scared when she first found out she was pregnant. “I just kind of sat down and thought about it and realized that it was a big step in my life and it was a good thing actually, and I was really happy within 30 minutes,” she said.
The Never Too Late author met Glennon while she was filming Marriage Boot Camp with ex-fiancé Matt Baier. Glennon worked on the WE tv show and reached out to her after production wrapped.
“It was definitely butterflies there, but then again, as we started talking, strangely I felt so comfortable, which was amazing,” the lighting technician told Us in August. “I feel like that’s hard to find.”
Portwood shared that sentiment, revealing to Us, “I think we just kind of fell into this groove really enjoying life with each other for a while, so its kind of fun and it’s kind of serious in a way as well. But we’re trying not to put too much pressure on a relationship.”
The MTV star, who was first featured on 16 and Pregnant in 2009, is already mom to daughter Leah, 8, with ex-fiancé Gary Shirley.
