The race for "Cutest Teen Mom Couple" is getting more intense by the minute, but it looks like Maci Bookout and her boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, might just take the crown away from Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. We know, we know, Cate and Ty have been dating since middle school, they're planning a renn-faire wedding, and they're basically flawless — but feast your eyes on this picture of Maci and Taylor, which Maci captioned "Yall, meet my best friend."

Our hearts just melted into a puddle of dreamy sighs. Maci and Taylor have been going strong for more than a year, and we've never seen her so happy. Sure, these two are technically in a long distance relationship, but absence makes the heart grow fonder! They couldn't look more in love in this photo, and we're thinking it's only a matter of time before Taylor and his gigantic mountain man beard get down on one knee and pop the question.

Fans of Maci's know that she wants more kids in the future, and Taylor's close relationship with her son, Bentley, proves that he's quality father material. Of course, Taylor will have to relocate to Maci's home state of Tennessee, but ain't no thang!

Do you think Maci and Taylor are the cutest couple on Teen Mom, or do Cate and Ty still own that throne? Weigh in below!
