Amber Portwood

So it begins -- TMZ has learned "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood officially checked in to an Indiana prison this morning to serve out a 5-year sentence stemming from her December drug arrest.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, 22-year-old Amber was transported from a local jail to the Rockville Correctional Facility at approximately 7:45 AM.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber was sentenced to 5 years in prison for drug possession back in January -- but the judge offered to keep her out of the big house if she completed a drug program.

Amber took the offer, but eventually quit the program -- deciding to serve time in prison instead.

Amber said she decided on the prison route because she was depressed in rehab -- so depressed she tried to OD on pills.

This girl (having a baby and being over the age of 18 does not make a girl a woman) is a coward. She took prison because it was the easy route; she's unable to control herself so she's dependant on the tax payers of Indiana to feed/clothe/house her for the next couple years. What a great example for you child, Amber. When the going gets tough, just quit.

This idiot is such a drama queen and she is completely full of it. She claims over and over how she loves her daughter and then turns around and does everything possible to not be a decent mother and be with her daughter. Give me a break!!! Amber needs to go to prison where she belongs and Leah will be much better off without her in her life.

And yet we still allow her to keep having kids! Stupid people are breeding! YUP 5 YEARS in prison so much better than rehab. Dumb trick!

I think Amber has thyroid problems. That is why she is overweight, depressed, AND why her eyebrows look like that. One of the first signs of hypothyroidism is weight gain, depression and thinning of the eyebrows, especially the outer edges of the eyebrows.
