Pregnant Maci Bookout baby bump photo

Teen Mom Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout braved the bitter cold to make her scheduled appearance at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, New York Friday night where she talked to a sold out audience about the struggles of being a teen mom. In addition to speaking on stage and with local TV station WKTV, Maci also took time to pose for photos with fans, including the one above in which she compares her growing baby bump with that of a fan’s.

“My baby bump is way bigger than Maci’s!” The expectant fan wrote. (In case you missed it, Maci is currently pregnant with a little girl, that she reportedly will be naming Jayde Carter, by her bearded beau Taylor McKinney.)

Maci sat down with WKTV’s Rachel Murphy to talk about her struggles and some of the misconceptions about the show:

“There have been critics who have worried that airing this type of series somehow glamorizes teen pregnancy,” Rachel points out in the clip, “but Bookout says those who make that argument haven’t been watching the series closely.”

“It’s not like we’re living in mansions,” Maci says. “We’re not driving Ferraris around, you know? We’re really dealing with real life struggles of being teen parents.”

Rachel references one of the many studies that demonstrate the positive impact 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom have had in lowering teen pregnancy in the United States. “According to 2014 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research 16 and Pregnant ultimately led to a 5.7 reduction in teen births in the 18 months after its premiere on TV,” she states.

As I mentioned before, Maci’s appearance was sold out, and judging from the overwhelmingly positive comments on social media after it was over, the event was a huge success. Here are a collection of responses from those in attendance with more photos of Maci Bookout (and her growing baby bump):
