Ryan Edwards Reconnects with Son Bentley During Jail Time, Reveals Maci Bookout

Fans of Teen Mom have anxiously awaited the moment when Ryan Edwards, 35, would finally show up for his 14-year-old son, Bentley, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Maci Bookout, 31. Despite Ryan’s tumultuous past, which includes multiple arrests, substance abuse issues, and stints in jail and rehab, it seems that he and Bentley have found common ground.

In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Maci spoke about Ryan’s newfound commitment to his son during his time behind bars. She revealed that despite being in jail, Ryan has been consistently communicating and showing up for Bentley more than ever before, which has been both surprising and reassuring for Maci. She expressed her gratitude that Ryan’s bad decisions and consequences didn’t hinder his ability to be present for their son, something that may not have been the case in the past.

At the time of the interview, Ryan was serving nearly a 12-month sentence related to a harassment charge involving his estranged wife, Mackenzie Edwards. Ryan had been in jail since April, following an arrest for possession of a controlled substance and a DUI incident. Maci acknowledged that Ryan had experienced rough patches and mental health issues while behind bars, but she made it clear that she didn’t excuse the behavior that led to his incarceration.

However, there is a glimmer of hope for Ryan’s future. On July 14, he was granted furlough to attend an inpatient rehab program. As coparents, Maci and her husband, Taylor McKinney, know that they can’t control everything when it comes to Ryan’s involvement in Bentley’s life. Taylor admitted to being skeptical about letting Ryan back into their lives after years of turmoil. But now, they are focused on finding a balance that protects Bentley while still allowing him to have a relationship with his father.

Maci credits their improved coparenting relationship to Bentley’s perspective and Ryan’s commitment to consistent communication. They have made and stuck to certain commitments, which have built trust and healthier communication between them. Despite the challenges they’ve faced, they are moving in the right direction.

The premiere of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter season 2 is just around the corner, and fans will get to see how this new dynamic unfolds. Maci and Ryan’s improved communication and their joint efforts to protect Bentley’s privacy and well-being prove that things are different this time around. While the journey hasn’t been easy, they are determined to continue moving forward in a positive direction.
