Long time fans of Teen Mom OG can easily remember a time when Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards were not only in a relationship, but engaged! They first appeared together on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant as they prepared for the arrival of their son and then were seen planning their wedding in season 1 of Teen Mom. Unfortunately these two couldn’t make it work, but they must continue to have a relationship in order to co-parent Bentley. In her Bulletproof memoir, Maci revealed a lot about her relationship with Ryan both before and after the arrival of their son. Even though Maci is happily married and Ryan is newly engaged, we’re going to take a stroll down memory lane with these 15 things you probably didn’t know about Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards’ relationship!
15. How They Met
Maci met Ryan through motorcross. He was apart of the same social group of people gathering at the local tracks and traveling to state events, so a familiarity developed between the two. One day Maci’s friend Abby told her there was a guy, named Ryan who had noticed her at the tracks and wanted to get to know her. He was best friends with Abby’s boyfriend. She suggested they all hang out and Maci agreed. In her Bulletproof memoir, Maci said she looked him up on MySpace and was immediately impressed as he was an older guy, who she described as “seriously good looking.”
14. Maci Didn’t Want to Date at First
In high school Maci was not interested in relationships, so when Ryan came along, she made him work for it! “From the first moment we properly met in June, he gave me all of his attention. And I was careful not to lead him on. I made it clear that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get involved with anyone…Even though I wasn’t giving him the kind of relationship he wanted, his focus never wavered…Little by little, my reservations about high school romance started to thaw. A few months in, I realized it was time to admit that I had feelings for him, too. By the time October rolled around, we were officially a couple,” she said.
