The teen mom is single again, and she’s ready to reunite with her baby daddy!
After being dumped by Kyle King, her boyfriend of nearly two years, newly single Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is hoping to try again with her ex Ryan Edwards. “He’s always been the one,” an insider tells Reality Weekly magazine. “She’s still in love with Ryan. A part of it is definitely the chemistry — she thinks he’s really hot.”
The 20-year-old thought she had moved on with Kyle, 23, but he ended things after she pressured him to get married.
“She was with him for almost two years, so obviously there was real love there, but he was always second-best in her heart of hearts,” the source says. ”She never wanted to admit it but pretty much all of her friends knew that she would have rather been with Ryan. She is sad over losing Kyle, it’s not like she never loved him. But she doesn’t love him the way she loves Ryan, so the breakup is for the best.”
And the source says she isn’t just attracted to Ryan because he’s the father of their son, Bentley. “She never thought Kyle quite measured up to Ryan, especially in the look department,” the source reveals. “It’s kind of shallow, but that was always there in the back of her mind.”
It’s possible Kyle broke up with Maci because he knew she wasn’t over Ryan completely.
“Kyle knew she was still in love with Ryan,” the insider says. “He read her diary last summer and found out that she was still holding onto feeling for Ryan and that she still wanted to have sex with him. It was major drama for them. Maci kept telling him that he misunderstood what he read in her diary, but the truth is she really is still totally into Ryan.”
But will Ryan want Maci back? “Maci wants Ryan back in a big way, so she’s back with him in that respect,” the source reveals. “They’re still talking and lately they’ve been getting along better than they ever have.”
Maci loves that Ryan is finally maturing, and she hopes he can be the man she’s always wanted him to be. “She thinks that Ryan has grown up a lot and she’s really hoping that they can get along and be a happy little family,” the source explains. “It’s what she wants most in the world. She would love to marry Ryan and have even more kids with him.”
