Maci Bookout has come along way since debuting her baby bump on MTV’s ’16 and Pregnant’ back in 2009. The reality star is now expecting her second child and is ready to tie the knot!
Maci Bookout, 23, is ready to start a new chapter in her life. She revealed on Dec. 29, that she was in fact pregnant with her second child. But she is also ready to walk down the aisle with her motorcross racing boyfriend of two years, Taylor McKinney.
Maci Bookout Reveals Engagement Plans
With a baby girl on the way, Maci Bookout is stocking up on bottles, diapers and formula. But this doesn’t mean she is putting marriage on the back burner. The reality star has big plans for her growing family.
“Before I got pregnant, we talked heavily about marriage— and we still do, but I don’t want to be a pregnant bride. That would be way too stressful!” she revealed to In Touch. “Plus, I want to be able to have fun at my wedding.”
That being said, Maci and Taylor are planning for a 2015 engagement. That gives them plenty of time to adjust to their new life with baby #2.
She went on to explain, “Obviously, I wish we would have been married first, but everything will come together afterwards.”
It’s great she is on the right path and she is obviously over the moon with the thought of a new bundle of joy.
One thing Maci admitted though was that she hopes her fans understand her decision to wait on marriage.
“I’m a bit apprehensive— I just hope people don’t judge,” she said. “We are a little bit scared people might not be as supportive as we want them to be [because we’re not married], but I hope they are.”
We think Maci knows what’s best for her and her growing family — we support her!
Baby #2 Was A Big Surprise
It was a big surprise to Maci and Taylor that she was pregnant. She was told by doctors that she was suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and Maci didn’t think she could have another baby.
“It was a huge shock, but we are very excited,” she revealed.
For all the Teen Mom fans out there, you will be able to watch Maci get ready for her second baby on the new season airing in early 2015.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers, should Maci wait on marriage until after the baby is born? Are you excited to see her return to Teen Mom 2? Let us know.
