A reality television show, a successful business, three children, and more, yet Maci Bookout and her husband, Taylor McKinney, appear to be more in love than ever. So how does the Teen Mom couple keep their marriage hot? The mother-of-three asked her husband for her column on The Stir and it just might be the cutest thing ever.
She wrote, "Since I do happen to be on a reality TV show, I'm constantly doing press interviews, and I usually get asked the same few questions over and over. One of the more frequent questions is, 'You are married with three children, you each own your own companies, you film for a TV show ... how do you and your husband keep the spark alive?'"
She gushed, "Truth be told, my husband and I are both very busy, stressed, and overwhelmed. We are both raising our children, we both work our asses off, and both of us are way beyond exhausted. But before all of that, we are partners and we are best friends."
So Maci asked her husband just how they keep the spark alive...and his answer will melt your heart!
Taylor's response read, "What keeps the spark alive? With 3 children, baseball tournaments, multiple businesses and those pesky cameras following us around, we rarely get time alone. But I've learned it's the simple things that do it for us. Dinner for two is amazing when we can squeeze it in, but sometimes the simple gestures of appreciation for what my wife does can make her day. A kiss on the cheek, grabbing her hand in public, or a pat on the butt and a 'see you in bed' as I pass her in the kitchen are all things I try to do to keep the spark alive."
He added, "Going to bed a little earlier so we can have some alone time before we're passed out snoring can make all the difference in our hectic lives. I try to frequently remind her that if she 'keeps wearing that bathing suit we're going to have baby #4 real soon.'"
He concluded, "I love her as my wife and as the mother of our children, and so every day I try to do the little things to let her know I love her, appreciate all she does, and that the flame is definitely still lit."
Maci and Taylor share two kids together, Jayde and Maverick. She also has a son, Bentley, with ex, Ryan Edwards.
