Sling TV Reality Takeover
Ryan Edwards learned his wife Mackenzie is expecting their first child together, but he wasn't as ecstatic over the news. On this week's Teen Mom OG, Maci Bookout's baby daddy learns he's going to be a father-of-two weeks before his arrest and cheating scandal.
On the episode, Mackenzie held up a positive pregnancy test to a producer. "Ryan was so excited he couldn't contain himself," she said. But when she brought up "starting over" with a newborn, Edwards, who is father to son Bentley, 9, with ex Bookout, wasn't as "excited." "Crib, stroller, diapers, clothes, baby food, bottles… Call me when he's about three," Edwards said, as Mackenzie shot back, "That's a s**t thing to say!"
Meanwhile, Bookout and her husband Taylor McKinney talked to an adoption counselor about expanding their brood. Bookout is also mother to daughter Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 1, with McKinney. Bookout explained that she would prefer to adopt over carrying another child because of the miscarriage they suffered. "Whenever I think about having another biological child, I immediately go back to that baby that we lost," she said. "I think we still have some grieving to do before we have fully accepted what happened. I don't want it to replace or fix the loss. It's too fresh."
While with the counselor, they explained how they want a child who is youngest four years old and who "may have a tougher time finding a home." The counselor said how a majority of children come from foster care and may have "damage" that could take "years to overcome."

"This pushes me towards adoption more than another biological child," McKinney said. "There are so many kids out there who don't have a good home. This is definitely something I'm interested in."
Also on the episode, Amber Portwood found out that she has gestational diabetes after suffering from morning sickness. "I can't really enjoy my pregnancy much," she said. "I'm feeling tired, feeling useless. Because I'm older it has definitely been more rough."
As for Tyler Baltierra, he visited his drug-addled father Butch in rehab with his sister Amber. Amber explained of when she noticed he relapsed, "He got a job a couple of blocks away from his crack dealer. I was with him only 2-3 months before he came here. It was horrible. If I wasn't waking up to dad throwing s**t, b***hing, I was waking up to quiet because dad is high."
Butch told his children, "I did my best at getting high. But I'll always be your daddy. This is only the beginning this is the beginning of an end."
Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9/8c on MTV.
