The Teen Mom family has just gotten a little bit bigger! Mackenzie and Ryan Edwards have just welcomed their second child into the world.
The couple has gone dark recently, appearing on social media much less frequently during their pregnancy. But it looks like all is well in the Edwards home, and now there’s another bundle of joy. Keep reading for all of the details about the birth.
Maci Bookout has had a pretty difficult storyline when it comes to her first baby daddy and ex boyfriend, Ryan Edwards. She’s had to watch with worry as he battled an addiction opiates, and things got even more complicated when his new girlfriend, Mackenzie Edwards, was introduced.
At first, Maci and Mackenzie got along great. After Maci met up with Mackenzie for the first time, she told her husband Taylor McKinney that she was happy Ryan had found her.
But their relationship didn’t stay good for very much longer.
Mackenzie and Maci stopped seeing eye to eye, specifically because Mackenzie refused to admit that Ryan was addicted. Soon, Mackenzie and Ryan found themselves booted from the show!
The couple confirmed this update to People.
“We’re not returning to Teen Mom this season,” Mackenzie spilled in the interview. However, she claimed that it was MTV’s decision.
“The network [MTV] told us they don’t want to show Ryan as a recovering addict,” Mackenzie said. She added that MTV “did want to enter a contract with our unborn baby and have the baby film with Ryan’s parents so it would look like someone else is raising it.”
Mackenzie went on, “They want to talk about us but they don’t want to pay us and film us.” Mackenzie claimed that Maci was in on the decision, threatening not to film unless Ryan and Mackenzie were off!
But luckily for those who love watching Ryan and Mack’s story, this disagreement between them and MTV wasn’t destined to last forever. In fact, to the surprise of many, they appeared in the most recent season of Teen Mom OG, and will also be in the next!
It probably doesn’t hurt that the couple have a huge change coming in their family: they just had another child together!
Before Christmas, Ryan’s father Larry confirmed that the birth would be filmed by MTV.
Larry confirmed this update to The Sun Online.
“She will be here after Christmas and the New Year,” Larry revealed. “Ryan said he is going to spoil her. He wants to give her my camaro! She’s going to be a daddy’s girl.”
He also confirmed that the birth will be filmed. “The crew is going to come in town a day or two before the baby comes to film the birth.”
Although Mackenzie and Ryan have been keeping the name of their child a secret, Larry dropped a huge hint about the name!
He revealed that his granddaughter will have a “family name.”
“The middle name is after a member on my wife Jen’s side. The first name is a modern name. It’s cool,” he shared.
