LOS ANGELES, March 3 (UPI) -- Reality television personality Amber Portwood has confirmed she is engaged to marry her boyfriend, Matt Baier.
"We are very happy," Portwood told MTV News Monday. "I've never felt this way about somebody else in my life."
She also insisted the proposal was not orchestrated for cameras taping her for the new season of Teen Mom OG.
"I don't stage things" for the cameras, Portwood said.
"I live my life. MTV follows me; I don't follow them," she said. "Everything that is seen on Teen Mom OG is our lives, and this is the way it is. We've never tried to do anything to please others. It's our lives to help others; it's not just for TV."
Portwood, 24, is the single mother of a young daughter from a previous relationship. She has appeared in MTV's 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom franchises. The new season of Teen Mom OG, co-starring Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell, is to premiere on MTV March 23.
