"It's so to the point where I'm like, 'Really, what is the deal?'" Bookout said about her longtime boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, and the fact that he has yet to propose.

Bookout and McKinney have been together since 2012, and have a daughter, Jayde, together, who was born in May. But even though the Teen Mom Season 5 finale last spring showed McKinney ring shopping, he still hasn't gotten down on one knee.

According to Bookout, it's only a matter of time.

"Marriage is something I want in my life," Bookout shared in her new interview with Us Weekly. "In my opinion — and I think Taylor would agree — we pretty much are already married. So it's kind of like, 'All right, what are we waiting on?' I'm confused."

Whether McKinney proposes soon or not, Bookout does note that they live together and that they "make a really good team," raising both Jayde and Bentley, Bookout's 7-year-old son with her ex-fiancé, Ryan Edwards.

"I don't think we would be able to do everything we have going on if we didn't have each other," she added.

And Bookout hasn't been shy about her feelings for her longtime beau. "I got lost in you and it felt exactly like being found," she wrote next to a picture of her and McKinney together on Instagram on October. Bookout and McKinney make an adorable couple and seem super happy, so we can't help but wonder along with her, what's the holdup?
