“Remember when we were talking about adopting another kid?” the 9-year-old asked his parents. “When are we going to do it?”

“Yeah,” he responded. “I have someone else to play with.”

While Bentley wants another brother, Jayde responded, “Sister!”

Adopting comes at a rocky time, as The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported McKinney filed a request for a Protective Order against Bentley’s father Ryan Edwards after he was arrested for petition to revoke, which means breaking probation, from a past simple possession of heroin arrest.

In the request filed in Hamilton County Circuit Court in Tennessee, McKinney asked that Bookout, Bentley, Jayde and Maverick all be protected under the order.

McKinney has a court hearing on April 2 to see if the protective order will be granted.

The arrest came after it was announced Edwards and his wife Mackenzie are expecting their first child together. She is also mother to son Hudson, 4, from a previous marriage.
