In a preview for next week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, MTV revealed some HUGE news: Ryan Edwards’ wife Mackenzie Edwards is pregnant!
In the preview scene, we see an elated Mackenzie showing a positive pregnancy test to her producer, who looks to be pretty much losing her sh*t over the news. The pregnancy shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to fans because Ryan and Mackenzie have been talking about having a child together throughout the current season, which has caused quite a bit of speculation that we would be getting a pregnancy announcement soon.
Neither Ryan nor Mackenzie have confirmed the news publicly yet, but The Ashley’s Reality Roundup has as she assures us the preview was not some sort of “fake out” scene. (April Fool’s Day is Sunday you know.) The Ashley’s sources say that Mackenzie’s pregnancy was being talked about a lot at the recent Teen Mom OG Reunion taping in New York City.
“That’s when most of the cast and even some of the crew found out Mackenzie was pregnant,” a source tells The Ashley. “Mackenzie and Ryan don’t know the sex of the baby yet, but are finding out on April 20.”
Mackenzie is reportedly due later this summer, which means she and pregnant Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska may be giving birth at roughly the same time.
The Ashley’s sources add that despite the talk at the reunion, the couple was really trying to keep the pregnancy hush-hush due to the anticipated negativity that the announcement would bring.
Well, they won’t be getting any of that anticipated negativity from me! 🙂 Congratulations to Ryan and Mackenzie! Although I agree with Ryan’s mom Jen, who said in this week’s episode that she thinks the couple should wait a couple years to make sure Ryan’s issues are under control, I wish the couple nothing but the best — and I can’t wait to meet Bentley’s newest little brother or sister! Or both?! (Oh man, can you imagine Ryan with twins?)
