Contrary to recent reports, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout insists she’s NOT back together with her baby daddy and first love, Ryan Edwards. But that doesn’t mean Ryan’s hurting for company. Wetpaint Entertainment has learned he’s already romancing another Southern belle from Nashville, Tenn. named Carlie Ralston.

“They’re not boyfriend and girlfriend just yet,” a tipster informs Wetpaint. “But they’ve hung out and hooked up at least 10 to 12 times in the past few weeks.”

Like Maci when we first met her, Carlie’s a fiery redhead. And judging from his tweets, Ryan was smitten at first sight. “The red head tonight,” Ryan tweeted during the wee hours of Jan. 11, “OMG.” Later that day he asked a pal via Twitter, “Did you find out my wife’s name yet?”

Carlie, for her part, seems equally enamored. “Got kisses by a celebrity,” she tweeted the night of Jan. 10 (presumably the night she and Ryan first met) with an accompanying photo. “That was fun.”

In her listing for Explore Talent, Carlie describes herself as “sweet, yet outgoing,” with experience in “both print and runway modeling.” No word yet on how she feels about kids, but if she’s going to date Ryan — dad to 4-year-old Bentley — she better get used to having a baby on board!
