Ups and downs! Teen Mom alum Maci Bookout and husband Taylor McKinney have faced divorce rumors since getting married in 2016, but they are still going strong today and proving haters wrong.
Fans wondered if the 16 &Pregnant alum and her hubby’s marriage was on the rocks after reports surfaced last year alluding to a split. Luckily, an insider told Us Weekly in February 2020 “there’s no truth” to the speculation. “They laugh at the [rumors] as they are happier than ever together.”
Maci and Taylor have a lot of history between them, which has made their connection grow even stronger over the years. They first started dating back in 2012 following the MTV star’s split from her childhood friend Kyle King. Prior to that, Maci gave birth to son Bentley in 2008 with ex Ryan Edwards.
In May 2015, Maci and Taylor welcomed their first child together, daughter Jayde Carter. Their second kid, son Maverick Reed, came along in May 2016. The pair tied the knot that October.
Tragedy struck in 2017 when Maci revealed she suffered a miscarriage. “Her name’s Dandy. Dandelion,” the mom of three told MTV producers at the time. “I think it’s important for people that are watching that we talk about it.”
However, the pair planned to keep expanding their family. Maci told Us Weekly in 2019 she and Taylor had been interested in adopting but weren’t set on a specific timeline.
“It’s kind of one of those things, people say, ‘Oh, we’re waiting until we’re ready to have kids.’ You’re never going to be ready. We will never be ready,” she explained to the outlet. “You just have to do it, type of thing. But we want the little ones to be a little bit older.”

She continued, “Taylor and I both always wanted to adopt. Now it’s just a matter of timing, and really accepting the process … Because we don’t want to adopt a baby. And not that we only want one, but we are open to siblings also.”
