Maci Bookout & Ryan Edwards

Although Ryan’s fatherly abilities come in spurts, as Maci’s said on the show, the OGs are probably better co-parents now than they have been in the eight years of Bentley’s life thus far.

Ryan and his now-fiancée, Mackenzie Standifer, were even invited to Maci and Taylor’s wedding, and we’re sure the Edwards will return the favor when they get hitched in November.

They seemingly settled on a joint custody sitch last summer, but the arrangement has since changed — now Nathan reportedly only gets Kaiser every other weekend on visits supervised by his mom.

Luckily, by January of 2016, the exes worked out a joint custody arrangement that’s still in place today — Leah now reportedly gets the girls Thursday-Sunday, and Corey sees them Monday-Wednesday.

Leah Messer & Jeremy Calvert

If only things were as clear cut with Adalynn, though. Leah’s youngest daughter, whose dad is her second ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, is with her mom the majority of the time since Jeremy is often out of town for work.

However, Leah insists Addie gets time with her dad when he’s home.

“I’ll let his parents get her every now and then. When he’s home, he gets her on the weekends,” she told Wetpaint.

Amber Portwood & Gary Shirley

Amber Portwood & Gary Shirley
These two have had probably the most hot-and-cold relationship of all the exes on this list. Gary was granted full custody of Leah in 2012 when Amber spent 15 months in prison, and she’s been trying to “win back” her daughter ever since.

Now sober Amber — who pays Gary monthly child support — gets Leah on weekends and some weekdays (though not weeknights), but has made it clear she wants to spend more time with her “booboo” than she does.

They also know how important it is to be civil for their son’s sake, so they often hang out together — along with Jo’s future wife, Vee — near their homes in Delaware.

Chelsea Houska & Adam Lind

Chelsea Houska & Adam Lind

Unsurprisingly, Aubree spends almost all of her time with her mom and stepdad Cole DeBoer, since, as Chelsea told Wetpaint in December, “nothing’s changed” with Adam in terms of custody or child support.

Jenelle and Barbara have set and reset tons of court dates over the years, but Babs has said she’s scared of losing her grandson for good.

Your guess is as good as ours on what’ll happen next!
