Are Taylor McKinney and Maci Bookout engaged? During the Teen Mom OG star’s recent baby shower, Bookout was sporting what appeared to be an engagement ring.
On April 27, shortly after Bookout shared the first photo of the celebration, In Touch Weekly claimed she could be engaged to boyfriend Taylor McKinney.
Taylor McKinney and his reality star girlfriend have been dating for over two years, and recently moved in tighter in Bookout’s hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Since then, the couple has been filming scenes for MTV’s Teen Mom OG, and preparing for the June arrival of their daughter, Jayde Carter.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Bookout shared a photo of herself at her baby shower early this morning, with the caption, “had a wonderful shower yesterday celebrating Baby Jayde! Thanks to everyone that was a part of it. Jayde is already such a lucky little lady! #babymoney #JC.”
Although Taylor McKinney was not seen in the photo, fans quickly took note of Bookout’s mystery ring and began speculating about the couple’s engagement. While Bookout has said that she doesn’t want to get married while pregnant, the reality star recently made it clear that she intended to marry Taylor McKinney sometime after their daughter was born.
During an MTV special earlier this month, Bookout opened up about her and Taylor McKinney’s plans for marriage.
“We definitely want to marry each other. I definitely want to marry Taylor. But at the same time, to me marriage is about wanting to get married because you want to marry that person, not because you’re pregnant and you wanna rush into it.”
Taylor McKinney’s child will be the first for him and the second for Bookout, who is also the mother of 6-year-old Bentley from her previous relationship with Ryan Edwards. On 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom, fans watched as Bookout and Edwards welcomed a child, became engaged, and broke up. Since then, Bookout has dated a number of men, including Kyle King, whom fans saw on the show, and Kyle Regal. However, it wasn’t until she met Taylor McKinney that she considered expanding her family.
As Teen Mom OG continues, fans will see more of Taylor McKinney’s relationship with Bookout, as well as how they’ve been preparing for the arrival of their daughter.
