Teen Mom's Maci Bookout and her baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, have been broken up for years, but whenever they're in the same room, sparks fly!
Are you dying to know how these two fell in love? Read on, ladies n' gents.
Maci and Ryan met in high school and immediately started dating. “He was just so cute, and I just wanted to look at him all the time,” she said during a talk at Slippery Rock University.
“He had a really pretty truck and you know, the things that are just so important in your partner when you’re 16.”
Ryan and Maci must have been all over each other, because Maci became pregnant after just one month of having sex! “Actually I was the one who talked him into having sex with me because apparently since I was a virgin he was scared of me,” Maci said. “I thought there was something wrong with me, but, you know, I finally talked him into it.”
Bentley Cadence Edwards was born on October 27, 2008, and Ryan and Maci decided to get engaged and move in together with their baby boy.
Sadly, things didn't work out what with Maci struggling in school and Ryan struggling with work, so they decided to break off their engagement.
“While I was pregnant, I missed out on a lot of the fun stuff you do as a junior and senior in high school,” Maci explains. “At the time, it didn’t really bother me because I accepted the fact that I needed to become an adult. Unfortunately, there were a lot of things that I missed out on, all because we were too stupid to use protection when we should have.”
Nowadays, Ryan and Maci maintain an amicable relationship for the sake of their son –– they even share joint custody!
“I love him,” Maci tells Us Weekly, “but there is a big difference between loving someone and being in love with them.”
Maci is currently single (she just broke up with her short-term boyfriend, Kyle Regal) and Ryan is working things out with his on-again off-again girlfriend, Dalis Connell. Sigh, who knows if one day these crazy kids will find their way back to one another?
