Will Maci Bookout’s Kids Bentley & Jayde Be a Part of ‘Teen Mom OG?’
It was a pretty big deal when Maci Bookout took her son, Bentley, off of Teen Mom OG (and almost quit herself!) once she got word that Farrah Abraham was returning to the show midway through the season.
“I’m not going to have my 6-year-old son on a show with someone who did porn on TV!,” Maci infamously said when a producer broke the news to her on-camera that her nemesis Farrah was back.
So now, as we head into TMOG Season 5 Part 2, the big question is: Will Maci’s kids be filmed?
The short answer is... yes!

For one, you may have noticed Maci’s now 6-month-old daughter, Jayde, appears in the trailer for a hot minute, so that’s a dead giveaway. So yup, she'll make her big debut on the show.
And though Bentley isn’t featured in that clip, we here at Wetpaint have seen the first episode of the show and can confirm that the 7-year-old will definitely be a part of this season.
In fact, Maci addresses the elephant in the room right away in the first episode.

As she, boyfriend Taylor McKinney and Bentley get miked up for their first day of shooting, Maci rationalizes her decision to let Benny back on the show. She explains that people know who he is anyway (with or without association with Farrah), so she made the executive decision for everyone to film as a family this time.
Besides, Bentley’s been on the show literally since he was born and his absence was surely felt in the episodes he wasn’t a part of. We, for one, are glad to have that little cutie back!
Teen Mom OG premieres Monday, January 4 at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
