It looks like “Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout is planning to tie the knot and it isn’t with her baby daddy Ryan Edwards. While Bookout, 23, has yet to speak out about her rumored nuptials, InTouch Weekly is reporting that the original MTV “Teen Mom” reality star, whose series is set to return to airwaves next year, is on the brink of becoming engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Taylor McKinney.
“She has talked marriage with Taylor and is expecting a ring from him very soon,” a source close to Bookout told the tabloid. When the proposal does occur, fans shouldn’t expect a long engagement, say insiders. “She’s not wasting any time,” said the source. “She knows that Taylor is the one.”
Bookout's wedding is not the only thing viewers have to look forward to. She is also ready to follow in the footsteps of her other “Teen Mom” co-stars by welcoming a second baby. “They’re hoping to have two of three kids together eventually,” said a source. “She can’t wait to grow her family with him.”
Bookout first starred on MTV’s docuseries “16 and Pregnant” in 2009. Six months later, she premiered her starring role on MTV’s spinoff series “Teen Mom.” The network canceled the program in Aug. 2012 after four seasons. In August, MTV announced that Bookout and two of her former “Teen Mom” co-stars, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell, would be rebooting the series.
Bookout last discussed her relationship with McKinney following the network's confirmation of the series reboot in August, telling Us Weekly she is excited for her fans to meet her new boyfriend onscreen. “My family and I are in such a new and interesting place in our lives,” she said. “I feel like I have grown up so much since the last time that I filmed anything for TV so it will be very interesting to show viewers how our lives have evolved.”
“Teen Mom” returns to MTV in 2015. “Teen Mom 2” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
