Ryan Edwards’ Post-Prison Release: Teen Mom Star’s New Video Shows Smiles and Controversial Girlfriend

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee – Former Teen Mom star Ryan Edwards has recently made a public appearance in a video shared by his girlfriend, Amanda Connor, after being released from prison early. Edwards, 35, had been behind bars for violating the terms of his probation but was granted an early release just before Christmas.

The video, accompanied by James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go,” shows Amanda sitting in the passenger seat wearing a white sweatshirt while Edwards, donned in a black sweatshirt, drives attentively. At one point, Edwards looks into the camera and smiles before redirecting his attention to the road. In another moment, Amanda playfully throws a snowball at what appears to be Ryan’s truck.

Edwards and Amanda first met during their time in rehab and have since expressed their love for each other on social media. However, concerns about their relationship have been voiced by individuals close to the couple. According to a source, one person described Amanda as “dangerous,” while another claimed she has had a troubled past with run-ins with the law.

Ryan Edwards appeared in court at the beginning of January, where Judge Gary Starnes ordered his early release from prison. The court documents reveal that Edwards’ probation on time served has been revoked, and his suspended sentence and “HCP Level 2” have been reinstated. He is now required to follow specific court conditions, including monthly Vivitrol shots and random hair follicle tests.

Edwards must also file a comprehensive treatment plan within 45 days, attend counseling sessions, and adhere to all recommended treatment requirements. His next hearing is scheduled for April 23, 2024.

The video of Edwards and Amanda driving together showcases a seemingly happy and stable relationship. However, the concerns raised by those close to the couple highlight the need for Edwards to maintain a responsible and healthy lifestyle beyond his early release from prison. Time will tell how this new chapter unfolds for the former reality TV personality.
