Ryan Edwards is a married man. The Teen Mom OG star and his girlfriend Mackenzie Standifer have reportedly tied the knot. The two allegedly got married right before Edwards headed to rehab.
According to Starcasm, Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer made it official back in May. Marriage records state that the couple got married on May 15 in Hamilton County, Tennessee, where they both reside. The ceremony was presided over by Minister James McNair Ramsey, but nothing else has been reported about the wedding thus far.
The surprising wedding news comes during a tough time for the Teen Mom OG couple. Ryan Edwards has been dodging drug abuse rumors for months, and after his ex-girlfriend Maci Bookout revealed that he needed to get professional help for his issues, Ryan has reportedly entered a rehab facility.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Ryan headed to rehab two weeks ago, around the time the marriage license reveals he and Mackenzie tied the knot. Edwards is said to be doing “very well” in treatment thus far. There has been no word on what exactly his issues are, but fans are wishing him the best as he tries to clean up his act.
Maci recently opened up to her Teen Mom OG co-stars Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood about Ryan’s alleged drug abuse, revealing that she often cries herself to sleep worrying for his safety. Bookout and Edwards, who share one child together, son Bentley, have had a rocky relationship, but Maci has always maintained that she wants nothing but the best for her ex.
“Honestly, the hardest thing is for me to see Ryan not love himself because he is a person worth loving. He deserves to love himself,” said Maci.
The Teen Mom OG star later confided in her co-stars that she was terrified that Ryan would lose his life if he didn’t clean up his act. Amber Portwood, who was vacationing with Maci at the time of the confession, told her friend that she’s been where Ryan is and she can see the signs that he is struggling.
“Ryan’s f**ked up. I watch it, I see it, I know it. Where he’s at right now, when I see him, I know where he’s at and I’m like, ‘Wow, he needs some guidance.'”
Meanwhile, Maci Bookout is likely thrilled by the news of Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s wedding. Bookout has said multiple times in the past how much she likes Standifer and that she is glad Ryan finally found someone who loves him and Bentley.
“All I ever wanted was for Ryan to find someone that makes him happy and a woman that will treat my son, as their own child [when] I am not there. So, we are both his mother,” Maci told Mackenzie during an episode of Teen Mom OG.
As more information continues to circulate about Ryan, his new wife, Mackenzie, is bashing haters who are gossiping about her man online. Standifer opened up on social media saying that instead of criticizing Ryan, fans should be praying for him and his family during this time. Ryan’s mother, Jen Edwards, also spoke out on the issue, saying that she and her husband Larry have a story that will be told, but not at this time.
As the Teen Mom OG reunion films this weekend, fans are now wondering if more information about Ryan Edwards’ marriage, rehab stay, and alleged drug abuse will be revealed to the public. For now, fans are hoping for the best for the Edwards family.
