TEEN Mom OG star Amber Portwood’s Belgian boyfriend, Dimitri Garcia, is staying with her for three months despite never meeting in person.
On this week’s TMOG episode, Amber, 29, revealed she is “ready to take it to the next step” and “meet” her new man in person after the 39-year-old reached out over Instagram.
She told her producer that the two have “chemistry.”
The mom of two said: “I’m really enjoying getting to know Dimitri, a new guy I’ve been talking to. I had other guys try to talk to me. He was the only one that never brought up d**k pics and things like that.
“He’s a very handsome man. I started opening up to him and we decided to meet since we like each other. I let Gary [Shirley] know about him and I hope he’s supportive.”
During a video chat, the two blew kisses and Amber called him “babe.”
Dimitri told her he is “nervous” and “scared” to meet her.
Gary, who shares daughter Leah, 11, with Amber, told his wife Kristina that Dimitri is dad to a 13-year-old and 11-year-old.
Kristina told her husband: “It’s going to be hard if he has kids there and Amber has kids here. How will a long distance relationship work? And there is a language barrier.”
“I did talk to Leah a little, she said, ‘I want my mom to be happy, but I want her to take things slow.' We agree with that.”
As for Amber’s ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Andrew Glennon, he revealed he is not ready to date.
He told a producer: “The thought of being in a relationship isn’t on my radar. It’s a turn off.”
He then said it would be in his and 1-year-old James’ “best interest” to move back to California, where he is from.
Andrew said: “I need to get my life back. I took a chance and moved out here, put my career on hold to have a family with her. I’m trying to re-patch pieces of my life.”
In a preview for next week's episode, Amber and Dimitri kiss when they meet each other at the airport.
The Sun exclusively broke the romance in December, only six months after her split from Andrew following her domestic violence arrest against him in July.
An insider told The Sun: “He recently visited her and they hit it off. She really likes him.”
Amber is currently on probation from the arrest against Andrew, which caused the end of their relationship.
On October 31, 2019, she accepted a plea deal and is required to complete parenting classes and 26 weeks of Batterers' Intervention Program.
Amber and Andrew aren't on good terms, as they have been involved in a nasty custody battle with Andrew over James.
Andrew has primary custody and the two share joint legal custody.
Amber has three unsupervised visits with James a week.
Teen Mom OG airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
