Teen Mom Star Maci Bookout Is Pregnant With Her Second Child
Catelynn Lowell isn’t the only Teen Mom cast member that will be soon become a mom again—Maci Bookout is pregnant too! The reality star, who, along with Catelynn and Amber Portwood, will soon return to television when Teen Mom comes back for its fifth season, announced the happy news today via In Touch Weekly.
The 23-year-old reality star has been dating Taylor McKinney for over a year, and has been living with him since July. She told the magazine that the pregnancy was a surprise.
“We still can’t believe it. It was a huge shock, but we are very excited,” Maci said.
The Teen Mom starlet told the magazine that she wasn’t sure if she would be able to conceive another child, due to her being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

“I didn’t think that another pregnancy was possible,” Maci said, adding that she was surprised when she began to experience symptoms of pregnancy. “I started having very strange symptoms, like my legs were very itchy and I had tenderness in my breasts. So we got a test and it said I was pregnant.”
Maci is due in June and is reportedly having a girl. She is already the mother of six-year-old Bentley, the son she had at the age of 16 with her ex-fiancé Ryan Edwards.
The Teen Mom star has been outspoken against teen pregnancy since giving birth to Bentley, and has given speeches at numerous colleges in hopes of preventing other young girls from getting pregnant, all while starring on the MTV reality show.
Although the show was cancelled in 2013, MTV announced that Teen Mom will come back for a fifth season in 2015, with three of the four original cast members. (Farrah Abraham was not asked back for season five.)
The network has not yet announced a premiere date for the fifth season of Teen Mom.
