When Mackenzie Standifer told husband Ryan Edwards that she was no longer on birth control on Monday night’s Teen Mom OG, he …
… reacted about like you’d imagine Ryan Edwards would.
When Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 17 kicked off, Ryan seemed happy about his new wife’s decision … at first. Not for long.
A little while later, she told him she wasn’t feeling too well, and was really nervous to boot. He didn’t even look up from his phone.
She claimed (to a friend) that when she revealed she was pregnant to Ryan, he was “so excited he couldn’t contain himself.”
Yet when she spoke to Edwards later about how much work they had to do to prepare for the child’s arrival, he responded:
“Yeah, call me when he’s about three.”
Suffice it to say, she was not overjoyed.
“That’s a d–k thing to say,” she said.
Meanwhile, Ryan’s ex Maci Bookout and her husband Taylor McKinney considered adopting another baby to expand their family.
Whenever Maci thought about getting pregnant again, she became consumed with the memory of her tragic recent miscarriage.
Already the mother of three – Bentley, with Ryan, and Jayde and Maverick, with Taylor – she decided to research the adoption option.
What did she find out?
Well, WE found out that the couple weren’t interested as much in a baby or a toddler, but an older child that needed a good home!
They also learned, and we learned as a result, that given the way the process worked, the next 2-3 years worked best for them.
That will be exciting!
Elsewhere if you watch Teen Mom OG online, you’ll see Catelynn Lowell finish her final week in treatment … at least this round.
Poor Cate has been in and out of rehab for mental health battles for months, and we give her so much credit for her resolve.
Her husband, Tyler Baltierra, certainly knows a lot about the subject; Tyler and his sister, Amber, went to visit their father Butch.
Butch is also in rehab for his own reasons.
Amber and Tyler were both extremely emotional about seeing him, particularly after he revealed that he’s doing a lot better lately.
“It’s a wonderful feeling. It’s something I’ve never felt before,” Butch said. “I couldn’t be more grateful for anything in my life or anyone.”
“This is only the beginning.”
