At the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter season 1 reunion, Maci Bookout was joined on stage by her husband Taylor McKinney and their eldest son (with her ex Ryan Edwards) Bentley. The three spoke to the hosts, Dr. Drew Pinsky and Nessa Diab, updating them on their lives and the latest on their relationship with Bentley’s father.
Bentley confirmed at the reunion that he doesn’t see his father often, and Maci said the extent of Ryan and Bentley’s relationship at that point was Bentley visiting Ryan’s parents, Jen and Larry Edwards, at their home, and Ryan sometimes in was near . Maci has since said that Bentley at least has his father’s phone number now, so things are going in a positive direction.
In a new interview with E! News, Maci reflected on her role in Bentley and Ryan’s relationship.
“I think it has a lot to do with how I can play a better role, a more positive role and a supportive role in the relationship that Ryan and Bentley want to have in order to move forward. I didn’t understand for a long time how I contributed to that,” Maci said, going on to say that she needs to work on herself to gain the confidence to move on with Ryan for the sake of his relationship with Bentley.
Maci Bookout says she grew a lot during Teen Mom: Family Reunion
At the request of E! News: “Are we going to see the progress you’re making in future ‘Teen Mom’ episodes?” Maci Bookout replied that fans will see, “During ‘Family Reunion,’ they spend a lot of time and work a lot to figure it out what needs to be worked through and what is not worth investing time and energy in.”
She goes on to say that she wants to move forward, but make sure it’s done in a healthy and genuine way rather than a “fake, fake” way.
This season of Teen Mom: Family Reunion brings Maci along with fellow actresses Amber Portwood, Ashley Jones, Briana DeJesus, Catelynn Baltierra, Cheyenne Floyd, Jade Cline, Kayla Sessler and Kiaya Elliot as the wives and their mothers.

Maci said that much of her work with “Coach B” was to help raise Bentley better with Ryan and to support Bentley and Ryan’s relationship as much as possible.
