Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer dropped a bombshell on Teen Mom fans and their general followers this month:
The couple is expecting another child together!
This news came as a shock for a number of reasons.
ONE, Mackenzie only just gave birth to a son named Jagger this past October.
TWO, Ryan only recently got out of both rehab and jail and isn't exactly considered a stable father... by either Mackenzie or his ex, Maci Bookout.
So, is this really the best time for the couple to have another kid?
We'll soon find out -- because it's happening!
Scroll down to learn the latest on the surprising situation, including a few quotes from an insider who alleges that fans around the Internet weren't the only ones taken aback by this pregnancy...
Before We Delve Into This Mess, Let's Do a Quick Family Reset, Shall We?
Mackenzie and long-troubled Teen Mom OG bad boy Ryan share little Jagger, a baby boy who was born to the couple in October 2018. Edwards, of course, has already been a parent for a decade, which is the reason he's on anybody's radar.
Ryan Also Has a Son, Obviously
He is 10 years old. His name is Bentley. And he is cared for primarily by his mother, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout. Ryan and Maci were a couple once, but their relationship has been tumultuous, to put it mildly, over that 10-year span.
Mackenzie Also Has a Son!
What some people may not realize, since no one knew Mackenzie at the time she first became a mother, is that she has a child of her own. His name is Hudson. He is around four years old. And his father is her ex, Zachary Stephens.
The Party of 5
Here's a cute photo of Ryan, Mackenzie and their three total children. Jagger and his two half-siblings, one from each parent. Everyone looks happy and content and this comes across like a very normal and steady family, right?
Yes, But ...
... things have been anything except for steady. As an example? Ryan was seemingly high at his own bizarre, parking lot wedding to Mackenzie. Then immediately went on Tinder afterward. Then, after she somehow remained by his side, missed the birth of his son, Jagger, because he was in rehab at the time.
Fast Forward Just a Couple Months ...
... and it somehow gets even worse. Ryan got arrested in January 2019 for theft and also for an outstanding warrant, which stemmed from a previous drug possession charge.
