Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney tied the knot last year — and have two (adorable) babies together! — but fans of Teen Mom OG still don’t know much about him, or even how the two met. The couple began dating long distance back in 2012, and two years later, he made the move from Texas to Tennessee — which brought them one step closer to an engagement ring! Get to know more about Taylor below.
He’s a motocross racer
Taylor was a motocross racer back in Dallas, but in 2006, he broke both of his arms. Ouch. Based on his Instagram account, though, he still keeps up with things going on in the biz. In September, Taylor posted a snap of professional BMX rider Terry Adams reppin’ TTM Lifestyle gear.
He graduated high school
That’s right, Maci’s got herself a scholar! Although it’s unclear whether or not he went to college, he graduated from Fossil Ridge high school in 2007.
He’s an Aries
In other words, Taylor and Maci are basically meant for one another. While she’s a loud and proud Leo, he’s spontaneous and daring. They’re pretty much Romeo and Juliet, but you know, without the whole death thing.
He coaches Bentley’s baseball team
Although Taylor isn’t Bentley’s biological father — he’s the son of Maci’s ex, Ryan Edwards — he certainly takes care of him like his own. Taylor helped the Owls take home the state championship two years in a row. Not too shabby!
He has a little sister
Although Tara McKinney’s Instagram is private, her bio states, “Texas born and raised ❤️ Boss Babe ? It Works ? Proud Aunt of 3 to Bentley, Jayde and Maverick. My family and friends are my everything.” So sweet!
His parents reportedly filed for bankruptcy
According to Celebrity Toob, Taylor’s parents, Larry and Evelynn McKinney, filed for bankruptcy on Sept. 21, 2005. Court documents stated they had just $40 in their checking account at the time. The docs also listed their joint monthly income at $12,452, and their total monthly expenses were $16,417. On Jan. 11, 2006, his parents were granted a bankruptcy discharge. However, this has yet to be confirmed.
Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
