Late last year, Maci Bookout announced that she is pregnant with her second child. Although she is currently filming for a fifth season of Teen Mom, fans never expected for her to announce another pregnancy.
Since filming for the original show wrapped, Maci has been living a low-key life with her son, Bentley. Meeting a boy named Taylor McKinney, Maci started traveling to see him a few times a month. The two seemed to have a strong relationship, and when he decided to move to Tennessee to be closer to Maci, fans seemed convinced that a marriage proposal was to come. It looks like the marriage proposal will have to wait, though, as the baby is coming first in this situation! Interestingly, she revealed to InTouch that she didn’t think another pregnancy was possible.
“We still can’t believe it. It was a huge shock, but we are very excited. I didn’t think that another pregnancy was possible.”
Maci Bookout revealed that she had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition which makes pregnancy difficult. It seems that both Maci and her boyfriend were surprised by the news, but they are excited! Of course, it has been nearly six years since Maci’s first pregnancy, and she is experiencing the pregnancy symptoms all over again. In fact, she is already losing sleep over pregnancy!
Maci and Taylor’s baby girl has a due date sometime in June. That means Maci is likely in the stage of pregnancy where she just starts to feel her little girl kick. Although first-time moms sometimes have a hard time distinguishing baby kicks from other stomach feelings, second time moms are usually able to feel their little ones kicking sooner.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Taylor McKinney has been busy preparing for fatherhood and spends a lot of time with Bentley. The couple also got a puppy for Christmas, and though raising a puppy is nothing like raising a baby, it looks like the new dog is getting Maci Bookout ready for those early mornings!
Maci posted a photo of her new dog waking her up along with the caption, “wake up momma its friday and i gotsa go potty!”
Maci is not the first Teen Mom star to have another child. On New Year’s Day, Catelynn Lowell gave birth to a baby girl and named her Novalee Reign Baltierra. Both Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell’s pregnancies will be chronicled on the new season of Teen Mom, which is set to air on MTV early next month. MTV has not confirmed the date, but it is rumored to be February 2.
