Maci Bookout, an original cast member of MTV’s Teen Mom, is expecting her second child, her first with boyfriend Taylor McKinney.

Maci Bookout Announces Pregnancy

Bookout announced the news on Monday, revealing that the pregnancy has come as a complete surprise for her and her boyfriend of two years. The reality star was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) after giving birth to her son, Bentley in 2009, a condition that can make getting pregnant extremely difficult. “I didn’t think that another pregnancy was possible,” Bookout revealed.

“I started having very strange symptoms, like my legs were very itchy and I had tenderness in my breasts. So we got a test and it said I was pregnant,” Bookout added.

Bookout has been a reality television staple since her appearance on 16 & Pregnant in 2009, when she gave birth to her son Bentley. Bookout, now 23, then documented her first years of motherhood, as well as her messy relationship with her ex, Bentley’s father, on MTV’s hit show Teen Mom, and returned to MTV most recently for her Being Maci special in 2013.
