Congratulations to “Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout as she confirms that she is pregnant with her second child. Read on for more details.
“Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout, 23, is expecting her first child with Taylor McKinney, her boyfriend of two years. Bookout revealed to InTouch Weekly that she couldn’t believe it was possible after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). She revealed that she took a test after experiencing pregnancy-related symptoms such as itchy legs and breast tenderness. Bookout said that she had to take four more tests to convince herself that she was pregnant:
“We still can’t believe it. It was a huge show, but we are very excited,” said Bookout. “This baby is such a blessing. I’m calling her my miracle baby.”
Bookout is already mom to Bentley, her first child with ex-fiancée Ryan Edwards, whom she welcomed at her show “16 and Pregnant.” Bookout revealed that when she first found out she was pregnant with Bentley, she had “a lot of worry and concern” as she was left alone to take care of her son. She also fears that she will be judged for having another child but shrugs off that thought, as she believes she is more capable of handling her second pregnancy. She added that she’s now more excited of her second pregnancy because she has become older and has a stable relationship with McKinney.
Bookout has been in MTV’s docuseries “Teen Mom” alongside Amber Portwood and Catelyn Lowell. The show is set to air its fifth and final season in 2015, without Farrah Abraham. Her co-star Catelynn Lowell is also expecting her second child in May 2015 with long-time beau Tyler Baltierra, so it definitely looks like Maci’s second child will have a playmate as Maci revealed that she’s 16 weeks pregnant, and she’s due to give birth in June.
Bookout and McKinney's family seems to be growing even more. Aside from the addition of a second baby to their family, the couple recently bought a new puppy named Bonnie. The couple shared the puppy’s photo on their respective Instagram accounts, for which he captioned “Puppy love” in the photo.
