On Monday’s episode of “Teen Mom OG,” Amber Portwood made the heartbreaking admission that she suffered a miscarriage with her ex-fiancé, Matt Baier.

The 28-year-old shared the news during a conversation with her 9-year-old daughter’s stepmom, Kristina Anderson.

Anderson and her husband Gary Shirley had also suffered a miscarriage and Portwood wanted to relate. According to People, she told Anderson:

“I never told anybody, but when I was with Matt I had a miscarriage. I didn’t have my tubes tied, but I know how that feels.”

It was an emotional moment. However, the episode may have pushed Portwood to threaten to quit the show.

Earlier in the day, Portwood teased the episode on Twitter but also said:

I can’t do this anymore… I have to quit this show.

When fans asked Portwood why she made the decision, she responded:

The heartache this show has put me through is too much to bear anymore. If I will not be shown then there’s nothing more to do. My name will not get smeared anymore. I hope everyone is resting easy with the money they’ve made off of heartache and pain that I’ve endured.

The mother of two, who welcomed a son in with boyfriend Andrew Glennon in May, also brought up the emotional conversation with Anderson.

Portwood tweeted:

All I wanted was for @krissyK01 is her to not feel alone and when she bravely said it on camera that really gave me strength to speak to her and let her know I understand and I am here for her. She was heart broken. I could see it in her eyes.

MTV has not commented on Portwood’s threat to leave the series, and it remains unclear if Portwood has actually quit.
