Taylor McKinney finally made Maci Bookout his wife! The Teen Mom OG stars are engaged after welcoming their first child together in June. Click through to get all the details on the engagement!
“I honestly don’t think it has actually ’hit’ me yet,” Maci told MTV.com. “But I am very excited and feel super blessed that I get to marry Taylor. He’s an amazing man and dad.”
Taylor popped the question on Venice Beach. “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,” she explained. “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!”
Maci’s son with Ryan Edwards, Bentley, 7, and their daughter Jayde, 8 months, were there for the proposal. “He was shocked and emotional,” she said of Bentley’s reaction. “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.”

As for her 8-month-old, she was “pumped” even though she “has no idea what’s really going on.”
Bentley will be Taylor’s “mini best man.” “Not sure he is aware of the responsibilities of a best man, but I’m sure he will do just fine,” Maci said. “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.”
Maci shared the happy news on Instagram with the caption, "Well y'all, my best friend asked me to marry him! I'm one lucky lady, I love you T!"
