‘Teen Mom’ Fans Have Harsh Words for Mackenzie Standifer After She Announced Her Pregnancy With Ryan Edwards
From Jenelle Evans to Farrah Abraham, Teen Mom has seen its fair share of dramatic moments thanks to the stars. But there’s always been one fan favorite from the show who’s gotten everyone’s love — and that’s Maci Bookout. Bookout nearly married Ryan Edwards when she was pregnant with his child, but the two have since parted ways. And while Maci is now married to another man, Edwards is also wedded to Mackenzie Standifer.
Despite his marriage and blended family, Edwards still can’t seem to stay out of trouble — and it has many worrying about his relationship with Standifer. For that reason, many are concerned that Standifer is now pregnant again with his child.
Mackenzie Standifer made her pregnancy announcement on Instagram
Standifer and Edwards have always had a complicated relationship. From Edwards’ stints in jail to Standifer’s appearances on Teen Mom, many never expected their marriage to last — but it seems they’re preparing to add another little one to the family. Recently, Standifer posted a photo from her ultrasound to Instagram to share the happy news with her followers. “Baby Girl Edwards is coming in January!” she captioned her post.
People reports this will be Edwards and Standifer’s second child together. They have a son, Jagger, who’s 8 months old, and they also help to co-parent Edwards’ son, Bentley, who he had with Bookout. Standifer also has a son from her relationship before Edwards was in the picture, too. And the excited parents are most likely hoping this baby will bring some brightness back into their lives since the news is coming three months after Edwards was released from jail.
Standifer and Edwards’ relationship seems rocky at best
Fans have been concerned for Edwards for years, especially since he’s been arrested for possession of heroin and battled substance abuse. And Edwards’ relationship with Standifer has also had many raising their eyebrows. According to Radar Online, sources claim Edwards thought Standifer was cheating on him during his most recent three-month jail stint. And Standifer was allegedly quite hurt by the accusations. Not only that, but another source told Radar Online that Edwards wanted time away from his wife.
Other sources claim Standifer’s family is incredibly concerned with Edwards being in her life, too. An insider told Radar this past April, “Mackenzie will be at her grandmother’s for Easter, but not Ryan. The family isn’t fond of his recent stints still.” The insider also noted that Standifer’s family thinks her ex-husband was better for her than Edwards is.
Fans have harsh words for Standifer
It seems Standifer’s followers can’t forget all of the negative press about Edwards, either. While the mom-to-be turned off her Instagram comments on the photo of her ultrasound, fans flocked to another image of her and Edwards to make comments on her pregnancy. And many are showing their concern that Edwards’ toxic behavior won’t change.
“How can anyone think it is ok to bring another child into your chaotic life?!? Ryan is constantly in and out of jail AND rehab. Children need love and security in their life supported with consistency and structure,” one of her followers commented on the photo. And another added, “He isn’t a husband. Just a sperm donor. Not even a good dad. … Won’t last long. Have fun raising kids with out him [sic].” Yet another commented, “You’re crazy to be having a baby with him.”
Some of Standifer’s fans are in her corner, however. As another follower commented on the post, “Mackenzie is the definition of a real wife!!! A woman that will hold down her man and defend him through the tough times and not bail because things get hard or he messed up. She helped build him and stayed strong through it all.” We’re hoping Standifer and Edwards find peace and happiness as they prepare for another baby.
