Who Is Maci Bookout?
Born Maci DeShane Bookout on August 10, 1991, Maci Bookout McKinney is an American reality television star, author, and public speaker. She was raised and born in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2009, she was cast in the reality television series 16 and Pregnant, which followed the pregnancies and early motherhood of several young women.
She was cast in the spin-off series Teen Mom later that year, and she appeared in all four of its seasons up until its conclusion in 2012. For the fifth season of the programme, now known as Teen Mom OG, Bookout, Catelynn Baltierra, Amber Portwood, and Farrah Abraham returned to MTV in March 2015.
Who Is Taylor McKinney?
Ryan only displays disinterest or interest when it is convenient, whereas Taylor acts as a loving father figure to Bentley. No matter what he does, he never prevents Ryan from seeing his son.
In the middle of the season, Taylor and Maci learn they are expecting a child together, and they start talking about getting married. On May 29, 2015, Maci gave birth to a girl named Jayde Carter.
Are They Still Together?
Fans questioned whether the 16 & Pregnant actress and her husband’s marriage was in trouble after rumours of a breakup surfaced last year. Fortunately, a source informed Us Weekly in February 2020 that “there’s no truth” to the rumours. They laugh off the rumours because their relationship is stronger than ever.
Taylor and Maci have a long history together, which has only served to strengthen their bond over time. After the MTV star and her childhood friend Kyle King broke up in 2012, they first began dating. Prior to that, Maci and her ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards had a son named Bentley in 2008.
At present they are together in a very strong bond.
Daughter Jayde Carter, the couple’s first child together, was born in May 2015. Son Maverick Reed, their second child, was born in May 2016. That October, the couple got married.
In 2017, tragedy struck when Maci admitted to having a miscarriage. “She goes by Dandy. At the time, the mother of three told MTV producers, “Dandelion.” “I believe it’s crucial that we discuss it for those who are watching.”
The couple nevertheless intended to continue growing their family. Despite not having a set timeline in mind, Maci and Taylor expressed interest in adopting to Us Weekly in 2019.
