Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout is currently pregnant with her third child and is exactly three weeks away from her May 30 due date. The 24-year-old reality star took to Instagram on Mother’s Day to update fans with the brand new baby bump photo above that she accurately captioned: “This momma is ready to pop. #happymothersday ??”
In case you missed it, the name Maci and fiance Taylor McKinney chose for their son was revealed at Maci’s baby shower last month. Bentley and Jayde’s little brother will be named Maverick Reed!
Prior to the baby shower and name reveal, back in early March, Maci and her mother Sharon Bookout took a trip to the UK where they attended a Riki Dalal bridal fashion show as part of her preparation for her upcoming wedding. While in the UK, Maci gave an interview in which she talked about the upcoming wedding as well as her current pregnancy. Here is that video along with some transcribed excerpts, followed by another video in which Maci shares her “candid confessions” about being a teen mom:
How is the wedding planning with Taylor going?
Wedding planning is still in the beginning stages. We’re working on a venue and a date right now, and hopefully I’ll find a dress while I’m in the UK.
What will make your wedding day perfect?
What would make my wedding day perfect is just to have all of my family and friends and the closest people to me there to celebrate with us.
Will you invite the other Teen Mom OGs to your big day?
I definitely plan on inviting some of the other OGs to the wedding. I don’t think it would feel right without them there.
How’s your third pregnancy going?
It’s much easier. The anxiety level is much lower, just because at this point I pretty much know what I’m doing. Or at least think I do. So, it’s been easier.
Have you had any negative comments about your third pregnancy?
There have been some negative comments about my third pregnancy. But, you know, I had negative comments with my second pregnancy and my first pregnancy too. I typically just kind of ignore them and don’t respond. It doesn’t really bother me.
Maci’s “candid confessions” about being a teen mom:
We can’t wait to meet Taylor and Maci’s son Maverick Reed, and we can’t wait to see the joyful celebration to follow when the happy couple and parents finally walk down the aisle — with some of the Teen Mom OGs! Stay tuned…
