Now that Teen Mom‘s Maci Bookout and beau Kyle King have split, she’s back with ex-fiance Ryan Edwards—but can the pair work out their differences?
Well, their son Bentley, 2, is partly behind the relationship redux, so maybe they can stick it out!
“Maci and Ryan‘s friendship has been great,” a source tells OK!. “They’ve been doing a good job figuring out a system of how to raise Bentley together.”
And Ryan’s parents couldn’t be happier about the reunion: “We’re extremely proud of the way Ryan and Maci are coming together to co-parent Bentley,” they tell the magazine. “They’ve both grown so much.”
Maci’s determination to keep Ryan in her life for Bentley’s sake is fueling their newfound relationship. “A part of Maci will always love Ryan,” the source says.m “He’s the father of her son. And whenever she looks at Bentley, he’s a part of Ryan, too.”
Maci’s feelings for Ryan never wavered too much, even when she was involved with Kyle. After all, he was her first love, and she lost her virginity to him. Says the source: “Maci tried not to do anything that would hurt Ryan’s feelings or make things awkard between them.”
Now, reports OK!, Maci is being “forced to comare her feelings for both men.”
