Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards have always had a very interesting relationship.
At the beginning, it was clear their relationship was one-sided: Maci wanted to work things out with Ryan, but the feeling wasn’t mutual.
Then, things went south with Ryan, and he developed an addiction that made him into a less than idea father. Maci moved on, and things between them got tense.
But now, Maci is opening up with a shocking update about their relationship.
Maci Bookout is easily one of the most respected members of the Teen Mom cast. She’s always stood by her morals, always prioritized her children above anything else, and says exactly what she means.
As for her ex, Ryan Edwards, it’s not quite like that. Even when he was sober, fans weren’t sure he’d be a great parent to Bentley. But as he struggles with his addiction, it seems that he can’t make time for his own son.
Now, Maci is peeling back the curtain about their relationship.
Maci spilled the tea in an interview with Us Magazine.
It turns out that Maci “still only deals with or speaks to [Ryan’s parents] Jen and Larry,” to deal with Bentley’s comings and goings. But she added that “the idea of coexisting isn’t ‘unfathomable,’” according to the outlet .
“There are some times that are coming up on the season that we are actually in the same room together, doing the best that we can for Bentley’s sake,” Maci said.
She went on, “It’s definitely not unreachable, but it’s still just a thing where I think baby steps are best and definitely not forcing anything that that doesn’t seem like it would happen naturally. I think it’s the best way to go for our situation.”
This seems like a step up from May of 2019 when Maci revealed she and Ryan “don’t really have a relationship.”
“It’s not negative. It’s not a bad relationship, there’s just really not one,” she said at the time.
