Keeping Fans up to Date
The life and times of one of our favorite Teen Mom OG stars, Maci Bookout has been a fan favorite to follow. From following her struggle as a single mother raising her eight-year-old son Bentley to now watching her raise her own little blended family with husband Taylor McKinney, the road to happiness hasn’t been an easy one for Maci. This is especially true of her relationship with her ex and baby daddy, Ryan Edwards. In fact, Edwards has had to battle his own personal demons lately and is reported to have recently checked into rehab.
The 25-year-old mother of three recently sat down in an exclusive interview with Life & Style in which she updated anxious fans about Ryan’s condition and his plans for the future.
Ryan Edwards apparently checked himself into rehab early last month on May 15th, following his elopement with long time fiancée Mackenzie Standifer. According to sources close to the 28-year-old, he entered the rehabilitation program due to substance abuse. Edward’s drug abuse had come under speculation recently. While there hasn’t been any word on what illicit substances the dad has been using, rumor has it that this isn’t his first bout with drug abuse. In fact, an ex girlfriend of the now married Edwards claims that he secretly went to outpatient rehab in 2012 when he was taking Roxicodone.
The newlywed father is out from his self prescribed hiatus, and Life & Style couldn’t wait to get Maci in the hot seat to spill her thoughts on Ryan’s condition. When asked about how she and her family are coping with his return home, the young mother responded with, “We’re all just taking it one day at a time, one step at a time.”
Old Time’s Sake
While the pair have had somewhat of a tumultuous past when it comes to their son, Maci has been reportedly supportive of Edwards during this rough patch in his life. Maci said, “Ryan is doing good. He’s doing what he needs to do and that’s all any of us can ask right now. We’re just trying to make sure he stays focused on himself.”
