Maci Bookout Relationship, Family – Ryan Edwards
Bookout renowned herself as a TV personality, author, and public speaker for all the right reasons. She has a lot of experiences in areas of love, relationship, and finding success.
Maci was previously in a relationship with Ryan Edwards, a fellow TV personality. The couple first met through Maci’s best friend, Abby. After stalking on MySpace, Maci got interested in Ryan.
After dating for a while, Maci, who was just 16 at that time, got pregnant with the couple’s child. Maci told Ryan about the pregnancy on his break time from work. Ryan, at that time, did not show any sign of resentment.
The couple got engaged shortly after the pregnancy revelation but stated later in life that this decision was driven by pure pressure and not a desire.

Maci welcomed her first child after a 37 hours long labor when she was 17 years old. They named him Bently. Maci and Ryan got their initial relationship rift when Maci was in hospital losing her sanity when the baby started crying in the midnight, and Ryan did not wake up to help.
Maci and Ryan ended their relationship a year later because of lack of understanding and never-ending tirade. Ryan started seeing someone else promptly after calling off the engagement. At the moment, Ryan is married to Mackenzie Edwards, and they have a family together.
On the other hand, Maci took her time for a new relationship that went public.
Maci Bookout Husband & Marriage
At the moment, Maci is married to a man named Taylor McKinney, a motocross racer by profession. After meeting for the first time in 2012, Maci and Taylor started dating each other, and things started getting serious.
The couple both had a different perspective towards each other as Maci thought Ryan as a very wild personality possessing a person. On the other hand, Maci’s sheer confidence mesmerized Taylor.
After talking and dating for a while, Taylor made a bold move of moving to Tennessee so to be with Maci. Maci revealed this news via her twitter in 2014. The very next year, in 2015, big changes happened between the two.
Taylor and Maci became business partners as well as new parents to daughter Jayde Carter, who was born on May 29, 2015. Maci and Taylor again became parents when they welcomed another baby boy on May 31, 2016, and named him Maverick Reed McKinney.

Mostly close friends and family attended the wedding, and Maci’s firstborn son Bently served as Taylor’s mini best man.
Pregnant & Miscarriage
After getting married, Maci and Taylor tried to have another child, but unfortunately, Maci got pregnant and had a miscarriage. While expecting a baby girl and naming her Dandy Dandelion with all the love their hearts could muster, the miscarriage came as one of the biggest shocks.
Shortly after the tragedy, Maci and Taylor also started seeking counseling. While everything is very good with the couple at the moment, at least from a spectator’s perspective, Maci and Taylor want to have more children and adoption is an option here.
As far as it goes, Maci and Taylor are both very determined to adopt a child.
