They’re expanding the family! Based on previews for next week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer are expecting their first child together. The cameras caught Mackenzie showing producer Jeni a positive pregnancy test and she looked beyond excited. Watch the video below and check out how they teased their pregnancy plans!
While Mackenzie nor Ryan have confirmed the news on social media just yet, they both have expressed interest in having a baby together. Ryan — who shares son Bentley, 10, with Teen Mom OG cast member Maci Bookout — told Mackenzie, “I’m ready when you’re ready,” while they discussed having a baby during a recent episode. “I think now is as good a time as ever,” he said.
The baby news comes almost four months after the couple tied the knot at their “original, intended” ceremony. Mackenzie told E! News, “It was amazing, it was the best day ever. Everything went so smoothly. It could not have gone any better.”
She continued, “This just felt like the actual wedding, it just felt like the day. That’s the anniversary that we will be using, in November. It does feel different, it does feel legit. It’s like what I’ve always dreamed of.”
The couple legally got married during the Season 6 finale of Teen Mom OG after making the decision to elope before Ryan checked into rehab for substance abuse issues. Ryan’s struggle with addiction has been a main theme on the show — his ex Maci has even expressed fears of him dying. She said, “I talk to Taylor [McKinney] about it like, ‘I wonder if today’s going to be the day that Ryan does something that he can’t come back from?”
