Bentley is going to be a big brother. Maci Bookout of the MTV hit show Teen Mom is pregnant with her second child with her boyfriend, Taylor McKinney. Get all the details, including her due date, and why this pregnancy was such a shock.
Maci Bookout made waves when she appeared on the MTV show 16 and Pregnant in 2009 while pregnant with her now 6-year-old son, Bentley. At the time, the 23-year-old was engaged to Bentley’s father, Ryan Edwards. Fans continued her journey on the spin off show, Teen Mom, which documented her life raising her son and eventually calling off her engagement to Edwards.
Bookout has been dating her current squeeze, Taylor McKinney, for two years and confirmed that she is pregnant with her second child and is due in June.
She announced she is pregnant by re-tweeting an article in In Touch Weekly announcing the news. Bookout told the magazine that the pregnancy was a “huge shock” because she didn’t think she could get pregnant again because of her diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
“I didn’t think that another pregnancy was possible,” she said. “We still can’t believe it. It was a huge shock, but we are very excited.”
Bookout said she suspected she was pregnant when she began having strange symptoms. “I started having very strange symptoms, like my legs were very itchy and I had tenderness in my breasts. We got a test and it said I was pregnant,” she revealed, saying they took four pregnancy tests to make sure.
The reality star is early in her pregnancy and hasn’t posted any pictures of her baby bump, but recently posted this cute snapshot with her son.
This new pregnancy makes a perfect story line for her new season of Teen Mom, which is currently in production.
