Teen Mom’s Maci Bookout Meets Ex Ryan Edwards For Emotional Talk About Son Bentley

Ryan Edwards and Maci Bookout McKinney promise to prioritize their child. The former partners got together to talk about the best way to co-parent their 14-year-old son Bentley in the Teen Mom: Family Reunion episode from February 21.

“I’d just like to be able to—for Maci to be okay with me being able to see him,” Ryan told hosts Nessa and Dr. Cheyenne Bryant. “I haven’t been able to spend time with him, just me, in a long time.”

The MTV star tearfully added, “I just miss him. There’s a lot of times I wasn’t there just to see him play ball.” Maci started to cry as she acknowledged Ryan’s suffering after hearing his perspective.

“I really appreciate the vulnerability and the ownership and maybe where he came up short,” she said before talking directly to Ryan. “There’s a part of Bentley that is hurting, but he loves you so much, and there is only one person that can help that hurt, and it’s you. He wants a relationship with you more than anything else.”

The pair proceeded to apologize to one another for the hurtful things they’ve said about each other, with Maci acknowledging that she could have treated the father of her oldest child “more like a human being.” Maci is also mom to Jayde, 7, and Maverick, 6, with her husband, Taylor McKinney.

“I would like to try our best to do this co-parenting just between the two of us,” she added. “As we feel comfortable and confident, we can bring others into it.”

When Maci and Ryan became parents for the first time in 2009, MTV cameras caught them for the first time on 16 and Pregnant. Teen Mom cameras kept an eye on the couple’s broken relationship when they split up in 2010.

After having an argumentative conversation with Maci and her husband over a Teen Mom reunion, Ryan and his parents Jen and Larry Edwards, ultimately quit the programme in 2021. Maci is optimistic that her connection with Ryan and his family may advance at its rate despite any prior conflict.

“With Jen and I, I feel like we’re not in the really bad place that we were in a couple of years ago, but I don’t think that either of us wants to rush it,” she said. “There’s a lot of crap. There’s a lot of stuff we have to stiff through.”
