Bookout’s son Bentley now has a little sister and is reportedly looking forward to his new job as big brother. Bookout recently told People.com, “He’s so excited for the baby. And I’m excited for him to have a sibling. I think it will be good for him to finally have to share the spotlight.”
Taylor McKinney, Bookout’s boyfriend, is the father of both Jayde and Bentley, and it appears wedding bells may in their future.
“We definitely want to get married and we’ve talked about it a lot. But we aren’t trying to cram it all in at one time. After the baby comes and we get settled in with parenting two children, then that will definitely be our next step,” said Bookout.
Once an over-achiever in high school, Bookout is currently a Chattanooga State college student majoring in journalism with the hopes of writing a book about her life. Regarding her decision to appear on the MTV show, she told the AP it was all about being a positive role model and said, “I wanted girls who might get pregnant to see there are options out there to move forward with your life and still have goals.”
We wish Maci and her family the very best! It’s lovely to see a family celebrating each other and looking to make a positive future together. After all, family is the fabric of this country.
