Teen Mom OG Star Maci Bookout Is Expecting Baby Number 3, But There's Controversy
She announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Taylor McKinney in January, but it seems as if even more congrats are in order for Maci Bookout.
The Teen Mom OG star took to Instagram last week to announce her third pregnancy, sharing the news that she’s expecting a baby boy in May! Yay!
The pregnancy was a surprise to her – she told Us Weekly that she "was at the doctor, ironically, to get my birth control prescription refilled!" when she was told that she was already expecting.
However, Maci’s happy news hasn’t been totally well received – it’s actually kicked off a whole new debate.
Some eagle-eyed Instagram followers have spotted a photo Maci posted six weeks ago of her holding a bottle of beer, and called her out for drinking booze when she was already at least three months pregnant.
Maci has spoken very openly about how shocked she was to discover that she was expecting, and explained that she only found out two days after Taylor proposed to her in January, so it’s very likely that she had no idea about the pregnancy when she shared that photo of alcohol.
Some fans are also arguing that even if Maci DID knowingly drink beer when pregnant, it’s actually no one’s business but hers. But without speaking to Maci directly, all anyone is doing is second guessing.
So, wherever you stand on this issue, you’ve got to agree that the main thing is that Maci and her baby are happy and healthy – we can’t wait to meet the newest member of the McKinney / Bookout fam!
