The ‘Teen Mom’ baby daddy and ex-boyfriend of Maci Bookout split with his girlfriend of two years Dalis, shortly after her mom passed away. But then Dalis and Maci’s ex Kyle King were spotted out together! Do YOU think they’re trying to make Maci and Ryan jealous?

After Teen Mom couple Ryan Edwards and Maci Bookout broke up during season 1, it didn’t take long for Ryan to find a near clone to Maci in Dalis Connell, 20 — she’s sweet, smart, beautiful and seemed like a good mother figure to his son Bentley, 4. But after nearly two years together, the couple decided to call it quits –just days after her mom tragically died.

“My guardian angel. I miss you so damn much mom. I love being told I look like you. I love you,” Dalis tweeted on Dec. 10 along with a side-by-side pic of her mom and herself. Although Dalis didn’t elaborate the cause of her mom’s death, she later tweeted that she and her older brother were now hanging out in heaven, and she loved thinking about that.

But amid such personal tragedy, Dalis apparently decided to cut ties with another important figure in her life — her boyfriend Ryan. “I feel so damn free! #finally,” she tweeted on Dec. 13.

Ryan echoed the breakup news on Dec. 16, when a follower on Twitter asked if he and Dalis were still together, and he replied “no.”

On Dec. 17, Dalis revealed one of her favorite quotes on her personal blog dalisconnell.blogspot.com: “Exit the people in your life that try to bring you down. Spend more time with the people who build you up because then you, can truly succeed.” Sounds like she’s talking about Ryan!

Dalis’ Wild Night Out With Kyle King

But while fans are buzzing with the hopeful news that Maci and Ryan might rekindle their old flame — she’s been single since she split with longtime boyfriend Kyle King in September — it looks like Kyle and Dalis might be the ones cozying up together!

On Dec. 16, Dalis shared a pic on Instagram of her out with Kyle and a couple other friends, and wrote “Wonder how much s**t we will get for this! hahaha don’t currr @kyleking100.”

Even though the two are standing very close together in the pic, we wonder if it had more to do with making their respective exes jealous — and less about them actually dating.

Either way, we think both Dalis and Maci are too good for Ryan! But Dalis and Ryan have split up and gotten back together before, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

What do YOU think of Dalis and Ryan’s break up HollyMoms? Do YOU want Maci and Ryan to get back together?

Dalis is just trying to get famous. Seems like every time Maci dyes her hair, Dalis is too. Sorry hun. You were slow on the reunion and you’ll never be relevant. You will never be Maci. Everyone sees you for who you really are, another fame whore. Get in line with the rest!

Maci has since dated Kyle Regal a professional BMX driver. She is now dating some other guy (she talks bout him a lot on twitter) As for Ryan and Dalis well it sounds like Dalis broke up with Ryan. Saying she was free now most likely does refer to Ryan. As for how her mom died- I think it was cancer. That’s so sad though that her brother is also dead, what a hard life. As for Ryan and Maci getting back together. Well it seems like she has matured a lot since the beginning of Teen Mom- I hope they can work it out for Bentley. As for the choices- well if anyone could doe better it was Ryan. Maci always seemed really controlling.

Why are the only options that she can do better or they are great together – She’s gross and a fame whore. Ryan can do WAY better and has in the past . Dalis is Dirty. And quite frankly I always understood why Ryan asked if Kyle was slow…

Dalis was flirting with Kyle King on Twitter, this girl really needs to get an identity of her own and stop going after Maci’s poppy seconds.

does anyone else think that ryan and dalis are trying to get back at the other? ryan goes back to maci, and dalis goes to maci’s ex…sounds strange to me. i never really like ryan anyways, dalis (and maci) can do better, he’s arrogant and self centered.
