Matt Baier, close your eyes! On Sunday night at the VMAs, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood debuted her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. Amber, who split with Matt a few months ago after a seriously rocky (seriously shady) relationship, ironically met Andrew while filming Marriage Boot Camp with her ex. Fingers crossed this works out!

Amber looked gorgeous in a sheer floral dress and she certainly didn't shy away from posing for photographers with her new man. The couple smiled on the red carpet as Andrew, who works as a lighting technician, draped his arms lovingly around Amber.

News broke that Amber and Andrew were an item about a month ago, not long after Marriage Boot Camp ended. "It makes sense Amber and Andrew grew close during filming," a source told E! "Her relationship with Matt was in bad shape and when you're shooting a show like this where there is a lot of heightened emotion, participants bond with the crew." That said, Amber maintains that nothing happened between the two until she returned home.

Not surprisingly, Matt doesn't seem to be taking the news of his ex's new relationship all that well. "I'll hold out hope for reconciliation," Matt recently told E!. "But if nothing else, I hope we can stay friends. We started off as best friends and that's what I miss the most from her -- her friendship. To not have that is painful. When something happens, my natural instinct still is to call her and tell her everything. She was my family." That's sad and all, but maybe Matt should have thought of that before he pulled all the crap that he did. 

Right now, Amber and Andrew are doing the long distance thing, and from all accounts, it seems to be working out. "It's been good because we can give each other space," Amber told Us Weekly. "It balances everything out especially when you first break up with somebody. You don't really want to jump right in to another situation, but, you know, some men are worth it, some aren't. He's definitely worth my time."

Well, alright then. Best of luck, guys!
