“I am in no way another Matt Baier,” Andrew told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “I don't want any monetary gain or material possessions that she has. I just want to make her smile and experience things together that we both wanted to experience with our exes but couldn't.”

As Teen Mom OG fans know, Matt and Amber had a long, on-and-off-again relationship filled with scandals. Seven women claimed to have had children by the Boston native, five of whom sued Matt for overdue child support. The cases were dismissed.

Amber also accused Matt of stealing thousands of dollars from her on the Teen Mom OG reunion. Andrew acknowledged that his own scandals, which he kept secret from Amber, make it “look like she has terrible taste in men.”

“I am not a flawless man. The past is the past, we learn from it, hold onto the best moments, and burn the rest. Amber has a past I'm still learning about, but it doesn't phase me,” he told Radar.

“She's read the statements made by my exes, but still hasn't spoken to me about it,” he revealed. “No one is perfect, but we can always do better. I am willing to share every experience I've had, good and bad, because I am not the only one with a past.”
