Happy birthday, Benny! Maci Bookout took to Instagram on Saturday, Oct. 27, to share a sweet birthday tribute to her son Bentley Edwards on his 10th birthday — and Teen Mom OG fans can’t believe that 10 years have passed since they were first introduced to Maci, her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards, and their little boy during their episode of 16 and Pregnant.
“My baby turned 10 today! This boy has brought me more love than one soul could imagine, more laughter than my cheeks can handle, and more pride than I deserve,” the proud mama wrote. “When I say, ‘He is a good one’… I mean it. He is as smart, funny, and athletic as they come.”

My baby turned 10 today! This boy has brought me more love than one soul could imagine, more laughter than my cheeks can handle, and more pride than I deserve. When I say 'He is a good one'… I mean it. He is as smart, funny, and athletic as they come. But he is a good one because he is kind to everyone and he loves with his whole heart. I am so proud of this young man and the human being that he is. Bentley, you rock buddy! You'll always be my baby 💙👩👦 #bennybaby
“But he is a good one because he is kind to everyone and he loves with his whole heart,” the 27-year-old continued. “I am so proud of this young man and the human being that he is. Bentley, you rock buddy! You’ll always be my baby #bennybaby.”
Fans flooded the comments wishing Benny a happy birthday and others couldn’t believe that so much time has passed. “Time flies! You’ve done an amazing job at being his mommy! HBD Bentley, I watched you on TV since you were a little tiny baby,” one fan wrote, while another commented, “Happy birthday Bentley can’t believe your [sic] 10 I have watched you and your mommy grow so much it’s great to see how well your [sic] turning out… You have a great mom she is an amazing woman just know that.”
Maci has been sharing her story on the hit reality TV series Teen Mom OG for nearly a decade, and fans got to watch all of the ups and downs she’s been through over the past 10 years: from the birth of her son to her breakup with Ryan, to being a single mom and co-parenting with Ryan, to her fairytale wedding to her husband Taylor McKinney, to giving birth to two more children.
On the current season of Teen Mom OG, Maci is still struggling to co-parent with Ryan as he continues to struggle with his drug addiction.
