This is heartbreaking. In a sneak peek of an upcoming episode, Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout reveals she miscarried a baby girl. The 26-year-old — who is a mother-of-three to Bentley Edwards, 9, Jayde McKinney, 2, and Maverick McKinney, 1 — opened up about their loss while out to dinner with her husband, Taylor McKinney.
“I love kids, I wouldn’t be mad about it,” Taylor responded when Maci explained that she would prefer to adopt rather than carry another child of her own. She added, “If you seriously want to have another baby, then I’ll do it. But I still want to adopt too. If that’s really what you want naturally, I want to do it now.” She continued, “But you’re forgetting something.”
When prompted by MTV producers, she revealed that she suffered a miscarriage. “Her name is Dande. Dandelion,” she said, as Taylor chimed in, “I don’t want to talk about it.”
“I think it’s important for people that are watching that we talk about it,” Maci responded. He clapped back, “I would like to talk to our parents about it first.”
As fans of Teen Mom know, Maci was definitely surprised when she found out she was pregnant with her two youngest, as she thought she wouldn’t be able to get pregnant because of her battle with polycystic ovarian syndrome. In fact, when she found out she was pregnant with Jayde, she told In Touch that she had previously been told her chances of getting pregnant were “very low,” so she declared Miss Jayde to be a “miracle baby.” And apparently, miracles can happen more than once — since she got lucky with Mav as well.
Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
