Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney have been dating for years, and they welcomed their first child together in May of last year. However, so far, the couple has not decided to get engaged. During a new sneak peek at the January 11 episode of Teen Mom OG, Maci Bookout appears to be a bit concerned about the issue.
During the preview clip, shared by HNGN on January 11, Maci Bookout and her longtime boyfriend are seen enjoying a night out with a couple of their friends. Then, McKinney responds to questions about fatherhood.
“It’s good man, it’s life changing. I never knew I could love something so much that just s–ts and pisses and cries, but it’s good. Wouldn’t change it for anything,” McKinney responded.
“So when are y’all having kids,” Maci Bookout asks another couple, Tiffany and John.
Although Maci Bookout was attempting to refocus the attention on her friends’ relationship, and not her own, John quickly turned the tables, questioning her and McKinney about their engagement plans.
“Yeah well we wanna talk about pressure, so uh, when’s that ring coming?” John asks McKinney.
As he remains silent, Maci Bookout adds, “When are you gonna make me an honest woman?”
“Honestly?” he asks.
“I would never talk someone into proposing to me but at the same time, I get tired of it,” Bookout explains to her friends. “Like, I get tired of people coming on to me, like he’s a piece of s— because he won’t propose to me, you know what I mean?”
According to Maci Bookout, she and McKinney are in the perfect position to get engaged; they have been dating for three years, own a home and have a child. So, due to her being ready, and him failing to make the move, her friends and family have questioned his intentions.
“I can say as a man though,” John tells Maci Bookout, “No guy wants to be pressured into it, when the time is right the time is right. I never understood the rush.”
Maci Bookout also discussed the issue of marriage during an interview with Us Weekly last month. During the finale episode of the last season of Teen Mom OG, McKinney was seen ring shopping. Several months later, Maci Bookout still hasn’t gotten her ring, which has many people, including Bookout herself, wondering what the deal is with McKinney.
“Marriage is something I want in my life,” Maci Bookout explained to the magazine. “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.”
In other Maci Bookout news, her ex-boyfriend, Ryan Edwards, the father of her 7-year-old son, Bentley Edwards, hasn’t been active on Twitter since last year, but he recently got fans talking on Instagram, when he shared a photo of himself and a mystery woman. Although Ryan Edwards didn’t post a caption with the photo, and didn’t reveal any other details about the woman, he did respond to someone who thought the brunette was his ex-girlfriend, Shelby Woods, confirming it was not.
Edwards has often dated on the show, but his relationships typically haven’t lasted more than a few months each.
