Congratulations are in order for Maci Bookout and her fiancé Taylor McKinney! The pair have finally welcomed their second child into the world, and we could not be happier for them and their expanding family! Get all the details about their new baby here!
Maci Bookout, 24, is a mom — again! The Teen Mom star gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Maverick Reed on May 31 and we are SO excited for the three-time mom and her fiancé, Taylor McKinney, 27. This is the happy couple’s second child together and Maci’s third. They announced their joyful news on May 31 via Twitter and it’s obvious that Maci and Taylor are ALREADY totally in love with their newest addition!
“Mr. Maverick Reed has officially made his debut & completed our family. So much love, so many blessings! ,” Maci tweeted on May 31. Aw! The little guy — who was born at 12:35pm ET and weighed in at 7 pounds 11 ounces — joins Maci’s other children: big brother Bentley, 7, and sister Jayde Carter, 1.
And how about that unique name — pretty adorable, huh? As Maci explained prior to giving birth. “Maverick was actually one of our boy name choices when we were pregnant with Jayde before we knew it was a girl,” she revealed during an interview with MTV News. “Reed is a family name for both our families.” How cute!
Back in February, the Bulletproof author opened up about expanding her fam and, as it turns, out, little Maverick was a bit of a surprise. “I was at the doctor, ironically, to get my birth control prescription refilled!” the MTV personality recounted to Us of the moment she found out she was pregnant again. “I laughed at her! I mean, she’s the doctor that delivered Jayde, so I was like, ‘Ha ha, that’s a funny joke — but it’s not really that funny!’ And she was like, ‘No, seriously!’ And I was like, ‘Oh, OK — well, give me 10 minutes to not freak out … You’re wrong. You’ve got the wrong results, you mixed them up.’ But no, she was serious!”
But planned or unplanned, Maci and Taylor are undoubtedly excited to be parents again! But they sure have a lot on their plates right now. After all, the duo plan to marry this coming October! …and according to Maci herself, they are “absolutely” not making any more additions to their family now that Maverick is born. “There are going to be some permanent birth control decisions made immediately after birth,” she revealed.
