Maci Bookout may be facing marital troubles on Teen Mom OG but off screen, she and her husband Taylor McKinney appear to be doing great as they focus on spending quality time with their kids.
Following last week’s episode of the MTV reality series, which featured Bookout and McKinney seeking therapy for their marriage concerns, the longtime television personality and mother-of-three took to Instagram, where she posted two new photos of her three kids, including her oldest son, 8-year-old Bentley.
“These are the best days of our lives!” Maci Bookout wrote in the caption of a photo of her husband and her oldest son at one of his baseball games. “@tmon3yyy #bennybaby #champs.”
In the photo, Taylor McKinney was seen standing beside Bentley, whose father is Ryan Edwards, as the boy holds a trophy. Meanwhile, the back of Maci Bookout can be seen and on her shirt, a message reads, “Mom of 85.”
Bentley’s father, Ryan Edwards, is believed to be in rehab at the moment following a number of allegations of drug use. Although Edwards and his family have stayed mum in regard to his alleged stint in treatment, E! News told readers he was doing well last week.
Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney got married in October of last year and just months later, as she filmed scenes for Teen Mom OG, Bookout admitted to a friend that she and McKinney often drink and fight once the MTV cameras stop rolling.
While the revelation certainly came as a shock to their many fans, the couple appears to be doing great and on Twitter, Bookout shared a photo of the two of them together on June 11 as she promoted their clothing line, Things That Matter.
“The plan is to look into the future and realize anything is possible,” Maci Bookout wrote in the caption of the photo, which featured her and her husband in Puerto Rico.
Around the same time, Maci Bookout shared a photo of her and Taylor McKinney’s two youngest children, 2-year-old Jayde Carter and 1-year-old Maverick Reed. As fans may recall, Bookout discovered she was pregnant just months after welcoming her daughter Jayde in May 2015 and just two days after the child turned 1-year-old, her younger brother was born.
“Livin’ the summer life.. swimmin’ & picnics! #missjaydecarter #mrmaverick,” Maci Bookout wrote in the caption of the photo below, which features her two little ones sitting together at a kids picnic table.
During last week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Maci Bookout compared her marriage to hell.
“Obviously having three kids is catching up to us,” she told a friend, according to a report by Radar Online. “Eighty-five percent of the time we’re good to go. The 15 percent is hell. All of our stress and emotions we take out on each other. When the cameras leave we’ll drink and freak out. It’s always literally the smallest things. It’s such small stuff but it blows up.”
Later in the episode, Bookout and McKinney went to see a marriage counselor and further exposed their marital issues.
“All of the little things build up because neither one of us communicate them and then all of a sudden we’re mad and we don’t know why we’re mad,” Bookout told the counselor. “I want to help him understand what I’m feeling without saying it in such an a**hole way.”
