‘Teen Mom’: Ryan Edwards’ Wife, Mackenzie Standifer, Told Her Instagram Followers She Gets ‘Ridiculously Mean’ Comments
There are plenty of famous folks frequently in the media thanks to the attention they gained from Teen Mom. But there are plenty of parents from the MTV program who also have used their platform for good. Fans have long loved Maci Bookout, as she’s been genuine throughout her journey on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom OG. Unfortunately, her ex-boyfriend, Ryan Edwards, isn’t doing much to win over the public.
Edwards has been in the news for drugs and reoccurring trips to rehab. And Bookout has spoken out regarding how he’s not doing a very good job fathering their son. While Edwards and Bookout are no longer together, Edwards is married to Mackenzie Standifer. And the couple just welcomed another baby in 2020.
So, how does Standifer feel about her controversial husband and family on display? She just told her followers that many folks on the internet are unbelievably mean. Here’s what she mentioned.
Mackenzie Standifer and Ryan Edwards are known for their rocky relationship
While Edwards and Bookout are known for being at odds, Edwards and his wife have also gone through some tough times in the past. Heavy reminds us Edwards and Standifer tied the knot in 2017. And while they each have one child from past relationships, they now have two children together.
Edwards and Standifer’s relationship has been called into question since the beginning. Heavy notes Edwards appeared to be under the influence of drugs on his wedding day. And in April 2019, Edwards spent a few months in jail following heroin and theft charges.
According to Radar Online, Edwards accused Standifer of cheating on him while he was in jail since she appeared to change up her look. And it put a huge rift in their relationship. Not only that, but Edwards allegedly looked for women to go out with on Tinder while still with Standifer in the past.
“Mackenzie is not about to deal with being put down by him and his accusations when she’s done everything to try and be there for him,” an insider told the publication.
Standifer recently gave birth to her second child with Edwards
Despite their rocky relationship and plenty of fan backlash, Standifer is still standing by Edwards. And they’re now caring for their new baby together. Standifer announced her pregnancy back in July 2019 via Instagram, but she made sure to turn off public comments. Now, we’re getting even more details on the little girl.
“Welcome to the world sweet Stella! Stella Rhea Edwards came on her own time and surprised us New Years Day!” Standifer captioned her Instagram post of the new baby on Jan. 13. “What a way to start our year! We are so in love with her already.” And she included photos of her and Edwards holding the newborn with their three sons playing close by.
She told her Instagram followers why she didn’t post pregnancy photos
Up until her new photos with the baby, Standifer hadn’t posted any content to Instagram since October 2019. And her fans are asking her why she skipped out on sharing the highs and lows of her pregnancy with her followers.
“How come you never posted any pregnancy pictures,” one follower asked on Standifer’s post showing her three boys all playing together. While one other follower speculated that she sold rights to the photos to Teen Mom, Standifer set the record straight.
Standifer answered the initial question, “to be really honest, most of the comments on my pictures are ridiculously mean especially about how I look and how much weight I gain and how ugly I am or how I’m a terrible mother/wife.” She then added that she “didn’t want to surround myself/deal with that while being pregnant.”
While others showed support for her, she added that it’s given her a “major complex,” resulting in fewer posts.
We’re hoping we get to see more glimpses into Standifer’s life now that the baby’s arrived. But if the negative comments roll in, she might go silent once again!
