For the first time since entering Seasons rehab facility in Malibu, Calif., a few weeks ago, Amber Portwood ventured out — with a Seasons staffer behind the wheel. “They stopped at a Malibu Ralphs market and Starbucks,” a source tells OK! in this week’s new issue. “In the parking lot there, Amber petted puppies up for adoption. She looked happy, though her face is rather bloated, probably from the detox.”
Whatever the reasons for her puffiness, Amber can’t be happy about it. “She’s terrified of getting heavy again,” an insider tells OK!. “She’d lost a lot of weight through diet pills and her busy social life, but now she’s committed to staying substance free, and instead of partying she’s watching DVDs in her room. She wants to be healthy and get custody of her daughter, Leah, back, but getting big again is a genuine fear.”
In other Teen Mom news: Now living together, Teen Mom’s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been making career plans: She hopes to be a teacher, he, a child psychologist. But for a few days recently the couple, who put daughter Carly up for adoption in 2009, secretly feared their dreams might get derailed.
“Catelynn was sure she was pregnant,” an insider tells OK!. “She and Tyler were both freaking out. They’re not ready to do it all over again. It took a huge emotional toll.”
When a pregnancy test came back negative, “it was a huge relief,” the source says, “but [the wait] was torture.”
