Teen Mom OG's Maci Bookout Shares Photos with Ryan Edwards' Wife Mackenzie

Maci Bookout and Mackenzie Standifer have ended their feud.

As Ryan Edwards remains behind bars on drug charges, the Teen Mom OG stars shared photos of their families on Instagram, which featured them posing alongside their combined five children.

“Family isn’t an important thing, it’s everything,” Maci wrote in the caption of her post.

In Maci’s photo, 10-year-old Bentley, who she shares with Ryan, was seen posing with her two youngest kids, three-year-old Jayde, and two-year-old Maverick, who she shares with husband Taylor McKinney. Meanwhile, Mackenzie’s two kids, four-year-old Hudson, who she shares with ex-husband Zachary Stephens, and three-month-old Jagger, who she shares with Ryan, were also seen.

As fans may recall, Maci and her husband were granted protective orders against Ryan last year after he reportedly told Taylor he was going to “put a bullet” in his head.

Around the time of Maci’s post, Mackenzie shared one of the images on her Instagram Stories and her photographer shared a photo on Instagram as well.

Shortly after the women’s photos were posted, a source spoke out, explaining why Maci and Mackenzie finally decided to end their years-long feud.

“Maci and Mackenzie wanted to put their differences aside for the sake of their families, and especially for their children,” a source close to Mackenzie revealed to Hollywood Life. “With Ryan away, Mackenzie was beginning to feel alone and fearful at the thought of having to raise their son on her own if Ryan keeps getting into trouble with the law.”

“Mackenzie felt like Maci was one of the few people who understood what she was going through with Ryan and wanted to make amends,” the insider continued. “It was also very important to Mackenzie that Jagger have a happy, healthy relationship with his half-brother.”

Ryan was arrested last month on charges of theft and drug possession. Weeks later, the theft charge against him was dismissed.

In July 2017, while attending the season six reunion of Teen Mom OG, Mackenzie lashed out at her husband’s ex by accusing Maci of “exploiting Ryan and his addiction on the show.”

Thankfully, they were able to move past Mackenzie’s shocking claims.

“Maci and Mackenzie realized they actually had a lot more in common than they thought and are looking forward to a better relationship moving forward,” the insider added.

The new season of Teen Mom OG is currently in production and expected to air on MTV later this year.
