"Mackenzie is expected to be induced on October 8," the source alleged to Radar. "She is naming her son Jagger Ryan."
With Ryan, 30, currently completing treatment in Alabama, it is likely he will miss the birth of his son, the insider claimed. "I believe her mom and her aunt will be in the delivery room with her," the source alleged.
As Radar exclusively reported earlier this week, a source claimed Ryan entered rehab in Alabama about a month ago. "Mackenzie moved out of the lake house they were in and is now living with her parents," the insider alleged. "He isn't supposed to be out until February or March." A second source close to Ryan confirmed his return to rehab. A third insider alleged he hasn't been seen in recent weeks.
Mackenzie did not respond to Radar's multiple requests for comment. Ryan's father Larry told Radar regarding the alleged rehab stint, "You know I can't comment on that." When asked if Ryan will be in the delivery room, he said, "You know I can't say." A lawyer for Ryan did not respond to Radar's request for comment.
Maci Bookout's baby daddy admitted his drug of choice is heroin. Ryan was pulled over by police in March 2017 and issued a citation for simple possession of heroin. Police confiscated fourteen hypodermic needles from his vehicle, one of which contained heroin. A bag with a dark substance was also found. He told police that he "has a problem," according to the report obtained by Radar.
Ryan entered rehab after his May 2017 wedding ceremony to Mackenzie. He was caught on Teen Mom OG cameras falling asleep at the wheel and slurring his words after taking a Xanax.
In March 2018, he was arrested for petition to revoke after he failed a scheduled drug test in January 2018. He tested positive for opiates and morphine in a urine sample. He received six months probation and five public workdays with random drug tests in between.
He was taken into custody again in July 2018 for breaking probation from a past possession of heroin charge. The first count of simple possession of heroin – petition to revoke – was dismissed. For the second count of possession of heroin – petition to revoke – he was given 11 months and 29 day suspended sentence. He must complete six months of probation and five public work days.
