Time flies! It seems like just yesterday Teen Mom star Maci Bookout was announcing the birth of her second baby — and only daughter — Jayde Carter. On May 29, the now mommy-of-three took to Instagram to wish her little princess a happy third birthday and TBH, it’s giving us all the feels. Check out the video above to see the adorable pics and sweet message.
Fans of the reality mom couldn’t get over just how big Jayde has gotten! “Omg! It’s like it was yesterday when you just had her! She’s beautiful. Nothing but blessings to your family. Happy Birthday, Jayde!” wrote one adoring Instagram user. “Three ALREADY?? Those years flew by! Happiest Birthday, Jayde! Hope it’s blessed!” commented another.
This precious celebration comes off the heels of a particularly difficult time for the 26-year-old. On May 21, E! reported that Maci and her husband, Taylor McKinney, were granted a two-year restraining order against her ex Ryan Edwards after revealing that he had threatened violence against them and allegedly abused drugs.
It’s nice to see that Maci’s family is finally free of all the Ryan drama and that they can celebrate this special occasion without interference! In fact, Ryan reportedly hasn’t seen his son, Bentley — who he shares with Maci — since the order of protection was filed in March.
That said, new reports suggest that Bentley was officially dropped from the original protection order and the father-son duo will finally be able to reunite. "Ryan really missed Bentley," Ryan's father, Larry Edwards, told Radar Online. "He hasn't seen him, not yet."
Here’s hoping that Ryan is able to assume his duties as a father and that Maci and Taylor can continue to enjoy their little ones!
