Do not mess with Maci Bookout or your kids! Earlier in the week, Teen Mom OG filed a protective order against her baby daddy Ryan Edwards after being arrested for violating his probation for heroin allegations – and the news broke only one day after Ryan's wife Mackenzie Standifer announced that she is pregnant with the couple's first child together. But in the midst of all this drama, Maci not only protects herself – she also focuses on protecting her children and she is in full Mama Bear mode.
"She is guarding the children absolutely.Maci will always protect the children she should and must," a source reveals Us Weekly . Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney filed both protective orders against Ryan, and they also listed Maci's nine-year-old son Bentley ̵
But it seems Maci has had suspicions about Ryan's sobriety and his problems with drugs and the law. Part of her story during the seventh season of the hit MTV series involved her struggle with the confidence that Ryan will once again visit her son Bentley after returning from a rehabilitation center. Maci did not think Ryan was 100 percent clean and sober, and he did not make it easier after he refused to do a hair follicle test. Both themes will be taken up during the upcoming Teen Mom OG reunion special.
"There was a good deal of discussion at the reunion about protecting the kids from Ryan," the insider revealed. Maci also said that she "had big concerns about Ryan's sobriety," and the insider explained that "Ryan needed more inpatient treatment, longer than what he got before."
