Maci Bookout is a 16 year old high school junior from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Her fiancé, Ryan Edwards, romantically pursued her during her junior year. Bookout gives birth to a son, Bentley Cadence Edwards, in October 2008. She attended an accelerated school so she could graduate early. Following her high school graduation, Bookout enrolls in the local community college to start classes and has little help from Edwards in raising Bentley. She has to rely on her family to help, but when she decides that is not fair to them, she quits the dance team to spend more time with Bentley. Bookout calls off the engagement and the pair almost breaks up. They decided to stay together for Bentley's sake; but have since broken up. She had a serious relationship with childhood friend Kyle King, but the two are no longer together. She is now married to Taylor McKinney and has 2 kids with him.

On Teen MomEdit

Maci Bookout, the mother of Bentley Cadence Edwards(Maci Bookout + Ryan Edwards' Son)  , is described by MTV as the classic teenage overachiever who is popular, athletic, and successful in school. She had aspirations to go away to college with her friends after she graduated high school, but her dreams are now on hold as she struggles to take care of Bentley, take online courses at the local state college, and to keep her relationship with Ryan, the baby's father. Maci gets fed up with Ryan when he does not help her juggle parenthood, school, and work to her satisfaction.

Bookout said the reason she did the show was because she wanted to get a good message across and stated: "I really just wanted to show girls how hard it was to be a teen parent, I wanted girls who might get pregnant to see there are options out there to move forward with your life and still have goals." She has gone back to college after dropping her online classes, and now is majoring in journalism and hopes to write a book about her experience being sixteen and pregnant. She also speaks at local high schools to talk about High School teen pregnancys. Considering Maci in this consideration it must have been hard for her when she was in school, looking after Bentley, homework and everything else.

Trivia Edit

  • Her middle name Deshane
  • She conceived Bentley on her first time having sex.
  • Her birthday is in August
