Teen Mom star Maci Bookout has been sharing her struggles as a young mother on the hit MTV show when the first franchise of the show started. She was just 16 years old when she got pregnant with little Bentley. She shared her story on 16 & Pregnant, and she was planning on keeping her family together for the sake of her son. But Maci has learned that being apart from her then-boyfriend Ryan was the best thing for herself and her son.
Bookout hasn’t filmed for MTV in quite some time, and it sounds like life has slowed down for her a little when it comes to being in the spotlight. She is working, and Bentley is getting more involved in sports. Now he is ready to start Kindergarten, which is a big deal for his mother.
According to a new Starcasm report, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is now revealing that she wasn’t planning on being so emotional about Bentley’s first day of Kindergarten. “I seriously thought i could make it through the first day kindergarten without a melt down LOL i didnt even make it out of the parking lot,” she revealed about her son’s big day.
Maci Bookout has had quite the summer already. She has been traveling with her girlfriends to Mexico and she even celebrated her 23rd birthday. But the celebrations weren’t stress-free, as it was close to Bentley’s first day of Kindergarten. “The fact that me & @swaysandusky had a long in depth convo abt work yesterday, proves how old we are getting. its weird,” she revealed, adding, “And the fact that my baby boy starts kindergarten on monday makes it worse. What is happening?”
As for Maci’s personal life, she has been focusing on her relationship with Taylor McKinney. Bookout had been in a long-distance relationship for a while, as her boyfriend was wrapping up his education in Dallas. Now, he is living in Tennessee, close to Maci. And it sounds like they are spending lots of time hanging out, as Maci tweeted, “my boyfriend is cheating on me with netflix.”
Overall, Maci Bookout has had a great year, even though she was battling some illness earlier this year. She had a couple of days where she felt horrible, according to The Inquisitr. But now, the pain is emotional as her son is growing up and starting school. Before long, Teen Mom fans will be watching Bentley start high school and become a teenager.
