Hip Hip, Hooray! Maci Bookout is officially a bride-to-be! Yes, it’s true, Taylor McKinney has finally made the leap to make an honest woman out of her. The ‘Teen Mom OG’ star shared the happy news on Instagram with the sweetest caption!
Maci Bookout is off the market — for real! Our favorite Teen Mom OG star and her longtime boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, are officially engaged to be married. The happy mommy shared the news on Jan. 19 via Instagram, and we are beyond excited for her!
Maci wants everyone to know: “Well y’all, my best friend asked me to marry him! I’m one lucky lady, I love you T!” — the TM OG star is engaged! Maci took to Instagram to announce the news, alongside a photo of her and Taylor smooching it up on a beach. Yay, so exciting! “I honestly don’t think it has actually ’hit’ me yet,” Maci told MTV News shortly after the proposal. “But I am very excited and feel super blessed that I get to marry Taylor. He’s an amazing man and dad.”
Taylor was able to completely surprise his love with an epic beach proposal. “We were on Venice Beach!”, Maci stated. “He (and MTV) had told me that I was going to do an interview for MTV.com, which turned out to be a complete trick just to get me to the beach for him to ask me.When he asked me to marry him, I was in complete shock. I couldn’t believe that it was actually happening, and to be honest, I couldn’t believe that he had pulled it off without me figuring it out…because I usually know everything!” So beyond adorable.
The best part was both of her kids were in attendance to witness the epic moment — even though their daughter Jayde is way too young to understand what had happened. As for her first born, Bentley, whom she shares with her ex, Ryan Edwards, he got pretty choked up. “He was shocked and emotional,” Maci revealed. “He actually teared up a little bit — I think his exact words were that he was just so happy that T-Money was finally going to be his step dad.”
But wait, there’s more adorableness. “Taylor has asked Bentley to be his ’mini’ best man, and Bentley agreed,” the happy lady told MTV. “Not sure he is aware of the responsibilities of a best man, but I’m sure he will do just fine! Jayde will definitely have a part in our wedding too — it’s just a matter of figuring it out considering she is still so young. I am excited to have them share this day with us.”
Congrats again to the happy family — we just love these two!
