Ain't nobody got time for that… The rumors, that is!
Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout is responding to allegations that she was drinking during her third pregnancy. Maci, 25, and her fiancé Taylor McKinney welcomed baby Maverick in May 2016 and now, the reality star mom is setting the record straight regarding whether or not she drank alcohol while pregnant.
After initially announcing her pregnancy, Maci came under some criticism after fans speculated that she had been drinking, based on Instagram pictures.
"I never pay attention to any of the comments or press or anything like that, I never have," Maci recently dished.
"It’s kind of just a dark hole that I don’t want to get into, but you know, it was more important for me to know that everything with Maverick and the pregnancy was okay and that there were going to be no complications or issues," she said.
In a nutshell: Maci is saying "bye, Felicia!" to those her mom-shame her (or pregnancy shame her for that matter!).
“So I mean, I didn’t really have time to really worry about what anybody else was saying," she continued.
In a recent Facebook Q&A, a fan asked Taylor, 24, about how much alcohol the couple consumes.
"We love us some [Bud Lights]. We can [have fun without alcohol]…..but no good story started with a glass of milk," the dad-of-two wrote.
Well, that's not really an answer, but hey — let him live!
While Maci didn't specify whether or not she was drinking during the first five months of her pregnancy with Maverick — as speculators suggested — she did maintain that her number one priority was making sure the baby was happy and healthy.
"I know me, and everybody that really knows me, knows that I would not be drinking while I was pregnant, so like I said, it was important for me to know that the pregnancy was going to be okay and Maverick was just doing fine and luckily, everything was perfectly fine, and so that was a blessing," she said.
Maci and Taylor share baby Maverick and daughter Jayde together, as well as co-parent Maci's son Bentley, 6, from a previous relationship. Their upcoming wedding is set to be a plot line on season 8 of Teen Mom.
