The Truth About Teen Mom Star Maci Bookout's Marriage

Many fans love to speculate on the state of celeb relationships, and that fascination has been no different for Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout and her hubby, Taylor McKinney.

In some cases, Maci has seemingly played into the rumors about a pending split with Taylor. As In Touch Weekly pointed out, she's shared on her social media clickbait headlines like "It's Over" and "Here's the Truth on My Divorce," so it's arguably no surprise that people speculate. However, when it comes to Maci and Taylor, these hot topics seem to remain in the realm of rumor and speculation, and, happily, there's no truth to it, making them one of the couples from Teen Mom who are actually still together. They're happier than ever, as Us Weekly noted in February 2020, adding that they've certainly had their ups and downs, but in terms of any major rupture, "there's no truth to these rumors whatsoever." The outlet even said that Maci and Taylor "laugh at [the rumors] as they are happier together than ever."

Although we're so glad things are going well for the duo, that doesn't mean they haven't had their fair share of hardship — keep on reading to find out more about their romance and where they stand amid TMOG's Season 9 premiere on Jan. 26, 2021.

Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney have been through a lot

Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney met in 2012, according to In Touch Weekly. Maci had her son Bentley, whom she shared with her ex, Ryan Edwards, in 2008, so she was already a proud mama and chronicled this journey on MTV's 16 and Pregnant, a public career that paved the way for her huge net worth.

Once Taylor and Maci began officially dating, they joined Teen Mom OG and, as Us Weekly noted, happily welcomed their two children, Jayde and Maverick, in 2015 and 2016, respectively. Maci said to the outlet, "Every day I wake up and want to be the best for him, and he does the same for me." Despite this beautiful connection, Maci and Taylor still faced loss when, in 2017, Maci lost a pregnancy. "Her name's Dandy. Dandelion," Maci said during a January 2018 episode of Teen Mom OG, per In Touch. "I think it's important for people that are watching that we talk about it."

So how will Maci and Taylor fare on Season 9 of Teen Mom OG? It sounds like Maci will need Taylor's support more than ever. "A shootout at a gas station leaves Maci shaken and left to deal with post-traumatic stress," her Season 9 cast bio reads. Of course, fans wish the best for Maci and her family, so let's hope everything works out.
