It looked like Teen Mom’s Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards, father to their 4-year-old son Bentley, were headed for a reunion on the Aug.18 MTV special Being Maci — but the reality star dishes in the new issue of In Touch, she has a new man in her life: 23-year-old Oklahoma-based granite company worker Taylor McKinney.
“He’s like the identical version of me, except he’s a guy,” the Chattanooga, Tenn., student tells In Touch, on stands now.
The duo met through friends in Dallas seven months ago and have been in a long-distance relationship since! “We’re looking for the same things in a marriage,” Maci tells In Touch.
And Taylor even has gotten the seal of approval from the most important guy in her life: her son. “Bentley’s going to need a father figure around all the time," Maci says, "and I want him to be comfortable with one ginormous family.”
Maci admits she considered getting back together with Bentley's father, Ryan — “but I don’t think he’s the right person for me.”
