Mackenzie Standifer: Pregnancy Details FINALLY Revealed!

Last month, the world learned that Mackenzie Standifer is pregnant with her first child.

Shortly after the news went public, however, Ryan Edwards' wife watched her world fall apart before her eyes.

For starters, Edwards was arrested just days after the announcement.

Less than 24 hours after that shocking development, several media outlets reported that Ryan had been caught cheating on Mackenzie using the dating app Tinder.

Through it all, however, Mackenzie has stood by her man, and sources say she's thrilled to share her latest pregnancy update with fans:

1. Before the Fall

In the weeks leading up to Mackenzie’s pregnancy announcement, she and Ryan seemed to be doing quite well. Now, it appears that was all a charade.

2. A Rapid Decline

Ryan and Mackenzie overcame a great deal to get to that good place, and sadly, it all came tumbling down within days of her big announcement. And the downfall started with some shocking news…

3. Ryan’s Deception

In March, Ryan was arrested for a probation violation that stemmed from an earlier arrest for heroin possession. Somehow, Edwards had managed to keep that first brush with the law a secret.

4. Standifer Stands By Her Man

Mackenzie went to bat for Ryan after his arrest, telling at least one media outlet that he had not committed any new crimes and merely needed to be booked for his earlier charges.

5. Tinder Surprise

But even the ever-loyal Mackenzie must have found herself experiencing some doubts about her marriage when it was revealed that Ryan had contacted at least three different women using the dating app Tinder. He used his actual photo for his profile, but made up a fake bio.

6. Pressing On…

But despite rumors to the contrary, it seems Mackenzie has no intention of divorcing Ryan. And today, the troubled couple revealed to their loved ones not only the baby’s gender, but also the unusual name they’ve picked out.

Ryan Edwards: Caught Cheating on Mackenzie Standifer AGAIN?!

It's been a tough few weeks for Ryan Edwards. 

But to be fair, the Teen Mom OG star's problems are almost entirely of his own making.

First, the world learned that Edwards had been arrested for an alleged probation violation stemming from a 2017 arrest for heroin possession.

Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Edwards had been using Tinder to try and cheat on his pregnant wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

Now, just when it looked as though Edwards had finally hit rock bottom, another allegation of infidelity has emerged, and this time, it might be more than Mackenzie can handle…

1. Trouble From the Start

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
Ryan and Mackenzie’s marriage has been fraught with tension from the very beginning. It all started with a scene Teen Mom OG fans likely remember all too well.

2. Wedding Day Disaster

Ryan was so high on opiates the day of his wedding that he lost consciousness while driving to the church. He checked into rehab shortly thereafter.

3. The Decline

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer sons
Ryan left rehab ahead of schedule, but he claimed that he was sober for several months after his treatment ended. Fans later learned this was a lie, thanks to footage that showed him guzzling booze just moments before he and Mackenzie’s “makeup wedding.”

4. A New Low

Ryan edwards mug shot
In March, Ryan was arrested for an alleged probation violation. Fans were not even aware that Ryan had previously been arrested or that he was on probation. Shockingly, it seems he kept the initial arrest a secret from his baby mama, Maci Bookout, as well.

5. One Awful Week

Wthin days of news of the arrest going public, several media outlets reported that Ryan had been using the dating app Tinder in an effort to cheat on Mackenzie. At least three different women came forward claiming that Edwards had made advances on them using the app.

6. Enter the Ex

Those who know her best say Mackenzie has been in denial about Ryan’s infidelity. However, it may have just gotten a lot harder for her to pretend she doesn’t know what’s going on.

Ryan Edwards to Mackenzie Standifer: I Want a Divorce!

When Ryan Edwards checked into rehab following his disastrous wedding to Mackenzie Standifer last year, fans were hopeful that the troubled Teen Mom OG star would finally be able to turn things around.

Sadly, Ryan's situation has deteriorated rapidly in recent months, and many viewers now find it impossible to sympathize with him at all.

In an emotional scene from last night's season finale, it was finally confirmed that Standifer is pregnant with the couple's first child together.

And Ryan's reaction to the news didn't win him many fans…

1. Major News

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
Fans learned several weeks ago that Mackenzie is pregnant with Ryan’s baby, but it was only last night that the couple officially confirmed the news.

2. A Joyous Occasion?

Ryan and mackenzie edwards photo
Ryan and Mackenzie headed to a doctor’s appointment together where they heard the baby’s heartbeat for the first time.

3. Ryan’s Reaction

Throughout the appointment Ryan sat with arms crossed, complaining that he’d like to go home and go to bed. Needless to say, Mackenzie was less than thrilled.

4. Jen and Larry Weigh In

Edwards’ parents also had trouble mustering enthusiasm, but for a very different reason.

5. Telling It Like It Is

Jen and larry edwards
Edwards’ famously permissive parents expressed concerns that it may not be the ideal time for Ryan to become a father again, due to his recent struggles with heroin and Xanax addiction. At the time they had no idea how right they were.

6. An Awkward Ride

While Mackenzie drove home, Ryan fell asleep in the car, a scene that reminded many viewers of the couple’s unforgettable ride to the church for their first wedding. Fortunately, this time the unconscious Ryan wasn’t behind the wheel.

Ryan Edwards: Is Mackenzie Standifer Responsible for His Drug Use and Violent Behavior?

It's been a good long while since the Teen Mom franchise had a villain as universally hated as Mackenzie Standifer.

Which is really something when you consider the kind of literal trash MTV has shown us over the years.

Seriously, this is a show that's featured the likes of Adam Lind, Nathan Griffith, David Eason, Matt Baier, Catelynn Lowell's mom … the list of horrible people goes on and on.

But nope, Mackenzie is the real monster here.

Believe it or not, many people actually think that, and with all of Ryan Edwards' recent issues, people are hating on her more than ever.


Let's discuss.

1. Mr. and Mrs. Edwards

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
OK, so Ryan and Mackenzie met somehow, somewhere — she says they met at the gym, but who even knows — they quickly got engaged, and though they were planning a wedding for November of 2017, they up and got hitched in a parking lot by the river last May first.

2. Red Flags, Girl

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
She said that they were getting married to help him gain more custody of Bentley, which didn’t make sense, but what was really alarming was that he drove them to that little wedding high on heroin.

3. Noooooo

Mackenzie standifer and ryan edwards
Teen Mom fans weren’t too fond of Mackenzie before that — in an earlier episode that season, we saw her go behind Maci’s back to trash her to Ryan and his parents — but when she turned off the cameras instead of taking control of that horrible situation, the hate really started going strong.

4. 525,600 Minutes

Mackenzie standifer screen cap
But then on the reunion special when Mackenzie read an open letter to Maci, basically blaming her for Ryan’s addiction … well, that’s when she pretty much set herself up for a lifetime of loathing.

5. Just Stop, Mack

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer photo
This current season of Teen Mom OG started off at that very reunion, and Mackenzie’s been digging her hole deeper ever since. She keeps obsessing over Maci in a really immature, catty way, and it’s definitely not been a good look for her.

6. There’s a Line

Mackenzie and ryan edwards
But while she’s undoubtedly obnoxious and not very likable, she’s been getting just an insanely massive amount of criticism now that Ryan’s whole entire life is falling apart.

Mackenzie Standifer: In Denial About Ryan Edwards’ Drug Use?

Last week, Ryan Edwards was arrested in Tennessee for allegedly violating the terms of his probation.

There are conflicting stories regarding the nature of Edwards’ violation, but in the days that followed his arrest, several disturbing revelations about the life of the troubled Teen Mom OG star came to light.

First, we learned that Edwards has been using the dating app Tinder to try and cheat on his pregnant wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that Edwards threatened to kill Taylor McKinney, the husband of his child’s mother, Maci Bookout.

It’s unclear if this threat constituted the probation violation that got Edwards arrested, or if the incident was only brought to authorities’ attention when McKinney and Bookout filed for orders of protection against Ryan after the fact.

Whatever the case, the events of the past week have left TMOG fans deeply concerned about Edwards’ welfare.

And for obvious reasons, many now believe the 30-year-old recovering addict is back on drugs.

Ryan checked into rehab last year shortly after getting married to Mackenzie.

Edwards was so high on his wedding day that he lost consciousness while driving to the church, but those who know him best say that he’s been taking his sobriety very seriously ever since.

Unfortunately, those who know him best may have been taken in by a disingenuous practicing addict.

“Mackenzie is in complete abject denial about Ryan’s drug addiction and issues surrounding how very, very serious it truly is,” a source close to the situation tells Us Weekly

“Mackenzie only wants to focus on having his baby and seems to be hoping that this will help him to be inspired to live a clean and sober life.”

Unfortunately, TMOG viewers know that Edwards is not completely sober, as he was spotted drinking before his second wedding to Standifer, which was scheduled in order to make up for the disastrous first ceremony.

However, the insider claims that Mackenzie fully believes Edwards’ explanation that he’s able to drink because he’s beaten his more serious addictions completely.

“Ryan denies the seriousness of the drug addiction, like any addict will do, and Mackenzie chooses to believe him,” says the source.

We may soon find out much more about the situation when the two-part Teen Mom OG reunion special begins next week:

“There was real concern for Ryan’s sobriety at the reunion and he was urged to get further treatment by close to the show off-camera, but refused,” the source explains to Us. 

‘There is a genuine and real fear that Ryan could die because of his drug addiction.”

Watch Teen Mom OG online to get caught up in time for what’s sure to be a doozy of a reunion.


Mackenzie Standifer DUMPS Ryan Edwards Following Arrest, Cheating Scandal?

The hits just keep on coming for Ryan Edwards, who's currently rivaling Adam Lind as the most troubled baby daddy in the Teen Mom franchise.

Last week, Edwards was arrested for allegedly violating his probation by skipping a scheduled drug test.

Shortly thereafter, the world learned that Edwards had used Tinder to try and cheat on his long-suffering wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

Sadly, all of this happened within days of news that Mackenzie is pregnant with Ryan's child.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Standifer has finally had enough…

1. A Troubled Marriage

Ryan edwards and mackenzie standifer pic
Mackenzie and Ryan had trouble from the start, but their marriage has recently gone downhill much more rapidly than anyone could have expected.

2. A Bad Omen

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
Teen Mom OG fans will likely never forget the sight of Ryan losing consciousness while drivng to his own wedding. The scene prompted many viewers to warn Mackenzie about the dangers of entering a marriage with Edwards. Now, it seems their worst fears have been confirmed.

3. Downward Spiral

Ryan edwards mug shot
Last week, Ryan was arrested in Tennessee and held on $ 5,000 bail for an alleged probation violation. The probation stemmed from an April 2017 arrest for heroin possession.

4. A Misleading Statement?

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer son
Mackenzie addressed the matter publicly in a way that only left fans more confused. She insisted that Ryan was taken into custody simply so that he could be booked … one year after his initial arrest. She’s since been criticized for lying to the public, but it’s possible that Ryan lied to her.

5. The Truth Comes Out

Ryan edwards on teen mom o g
Yes, for a full year, Ryan and Mackenzie kept the the news of his possession arrest a secret. It seems even Ryan’s baby mama, Maci Bookout, was kept in the dark. Maci has filed for an order of protection against Ryan after learning of his arrest and ongoing legal troubles.

6. And There’s More…

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer
To make matters worse, Ryan got caught up in an entirely different sort of scandal just days after his arrest. This one involved allegations that he’d been unfaithful to Standifer yet again…

Mackenzie Standifer: Is She Divorcing Ryan Edwards?!

There’s been a seriously overwhelming amount of drama going down with Ryan Edwards this week, huh?

It’s all been very interesting, but once you remember that he’s a real person with a real family and not just a character on a television show …

Well, it gets a whole lot more depressing, we’ll say that much.

To recap, Ryan was arrested earlier this week at his home in Chattanooga for violating his probation — because oh yeah, he was also arrested last year.

Unlike Mackenzie Standifer — or as Maci Bookout likes to call her, “his snake of a wife” — said, he was arrested last March, not last April, for simple possession of heroin.

He was pulled over and found with the drugs and with some needles, which is definitely not legal, so boom, arrested.

After that, he was put on probation, and a few reports have been claiming that he was required to take regular drug tests, but he missed his test this week, which was why he got arrested this time around.

This part still doesn’t make total sense, because if he was getting regular drug tests anyway, why would such a big plot point in this season of Teen Mom OG be about him failing to take a test to see Bentley?

Anyway, he was arrested, and whatever the exact reason, it’s not good news.

Also this week, there was another Tinder scandal — a woman came forward with screenshots of a flirtatious exchange she had with him, just like last time.

And in the middle of all this, it was revealed that Ryan and Mackenzie are expecting their first child together.

See what we mean when we said this was an overwhelming amount of drama?

And to think, it’s already getting a whole lot worse.

As we said, Mackenzie made a statement in which she claimed that Ryan’s arrest was nothing to be worried about, that it was just a sort of follow-up arrest from the heroin thing that happened last spring.

According to her, he still needed to be booked an entire year later, and that’s why cops showed up to their house, handcuffed him, and got him that cute mug shot.

It didn’t really make sense, but we just assumed it was a lie — even if it wasn’t, in saying that he was arrested last spring before their wedding, she showed she was lying about the timeline of his drug use.

Who could forget that insane letter she read to Maci at the last reunion special, the one where she claimed she had no idea that Ryan was doing drugs until their wedding in May, two whole months after he was arrested?

We’re getting off track though.

The point is, Mackenzie made a point to tell us all that “everything is fine,” when obviously things are the opposite of fine.

And now, according to a new report from Radar Online, things seem to be so far from fine that she’s left Ryan.

A source close to her told the site that “Mackenzie boarded a flight to go to New York yesterday without Ryan.”

Not only that, but “she left her son during her scheduled time” to do so — she gets adorable little Hudson from Friday to Tuesday, and his father has him the other days.

Radar says that Mackenzie herself confirmed to them that she’s in New York, but she didn’t offer any additional details.

Could it be possible that she’s finally realizing how bad her situation is? That perhaps it wasn’t the best idea to be impregnated by an intravenous drug user who’s been trying so hard to cheat on her?

Could she be filming an additional little something for the show now that so much has happened?

Or are we way off — maybe she’s finding a dress for a third wedding Ryan won’t be sober for.

Whatever’s going on, we hope everything’s all right. But considering the circumstances, that does seem like a pretty high hope.


Mackenzie McKee Confesses Secret Split: Josh & I Broke Up!

It’s still unclear if Mackenzie McKee will replace Farrah Abraham on Teen Mom OG, but MTV certainly seems to have taken an interest in McKee in recent months.

The former Teen Mom 3 star will be featured in a one-off special about her life that recenlty wrapped filming and is set to air next month.

As a businesswoman, fitness fanatic, and married mother of three, McKee is unquestionably one of the most functional of the alums of the Teen Mom universe.

Unfortunately, no amount of ambition and intellect can shield you from flat-out bad luck.

You see, the years since TM3 was canceled haven’t always been terribly kind to Mackenzie.

McKee’s mother was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and the special will focus largely on Mackenzie’s efforts to be there for her mother, while running a business and meeting the demands of raising three children.

It will explore the ups and downs of Mackenzie’s marriage and even reveal a surprising secret about her painful past:

In a recent interview with Radar Online, Mackenzie revealed that she was concerned that Josh might not want to participate in the special at all, as doing so would mean shining on a light on a rather dark chapter in their marriage.

“The first person I asked was Josh because I didn’t want to do it if he wasn’t on the same page as me,” she told the site.

“We were split up and seeing other people during Teen Mom 3.”

Yes, it seems that throughout the filming of TM3’s single season, Mackenzie and Josh “pretended to be together.”

“He would run and I just had to cry, ‘Oh my boyfriend is missing,’” she admitted.

“It was honestly horrible.”

Mackenzie gave birth to her third child, a son named Broncs, in 2016.

She and Josh were reconciled at the time, and while she had hoped that the arrival of Broncs would bring the two of them closer, the pressures of caring for a third child nearly tore them apart.

“I was in a really dark place,” she confessed.

“Then I had [our third child] Broncs [in 2016] and it got even worse. He actually left and ended up filing for divorce. I think we were separated for two months.”

Fortunately, Mackenzie and Josh are doing much better these days.

“Since then we opened up our own businesses and we got a house that’s a very nice home for our kids,” she said.

“But we’re still a hot mess,” she joked, concluding on a lighter note.

Mackenzie became a fan favorite during her short time on TM3, and we’re sure her still-loyal following will be happy to hear that her marriiage has turned around.’

And the continued interest in McKee’s personal life might just be enough to land her back on MTV on a full-time basis.


Kailyn Lowry Gets in on Ryan Edwards Drug Drama, Slams Mackenzie Standifer!

Kailyn Lowry is on Teen Mom 2, obviously, but just like so many of us, she can't seem to escape all that's going on with the OG crew.

Which makes sense — there's a whole, whole lot going on with those crazy kids.

For example, this week Ryan Edwards has provided us with enough drama to last a whole entire year, at least, with the news that he impregnated Mackenzie Standifer.

Which, of course, was followed swiftly with the news that he was arrested for violating his probation.

Like we said, there's a lot going on, and with Kailyn throwing herself in the middle of it, there's so much to discuss.

So let's get right into it!

1. Unfortunate

Ryan edwards mug shot
So things aren’t going so great for Ryan Edwards right now, as you can probably tell by that new mug shot of his.

2. Tsk Tsk

Ryan edwards of teen mom
Earlier this week, Ryan was arrested at his home for violating his probation, because apparently at some point in time he was arrested for possession of heroin. He was just in jail for a few hours before being released on bail, and from over here, it looks pretty bad.

3. Hmmm …

Mackenzie standifer ryan edwards
But as Mackenzie explained in a statement, “everything is fine,” because the original arrest, the one for possession of heroin, happened last April, and as for what just happened, it was all planned because “part of his case was he had to be booked.”

4. Sure, Mackenzie

Ryan edwards mackenzie standifer sons
Obviously that makes absolutely no sense at all — he was arrested for violating his probation, so why would that be part of the original plan? And if it WAS planned, why wouldn’t he surrender himself to police, why would they have to come to his house to arrest him? In what way is any of this fine?

5. Oh Girl …

Mackenzie standifer picture
It’s also odd because at the last Teen Mom OG reunion, Mackenzie claimed that she had no idea that Ryan was doing drugs until that fateful scene when he was nodding off on the drive to their wedding, which happened in May. So what, did she just miss his arrest the month before that? If you’re going to lie, Mack, at least try to come up with a decent story.

6. What is the Truth?!

Ryan edwards on teen mom o g
Also, a news station from Ryan’s hometown of Chattanooga reported that the original arrest for heroin happened on March 12th, so perhaps he’s not as sober as Mackenzie would like us to think.

Briana DeJesus: Mackenzie Lies & Kailyn Can STILL Suck My D-ck!

Briana DeJesus is been the newest member of the Teen Mom family, but she proved right off the bat that she was able to bring the drama as well as any of the vets.

In fact, it seems producers were so impressed with Bri's ability to win over fans that they were inspired to do some retooling elsewhere in the franchise.

Rumor has it, Mackenzie McKee will be replacing Farrah Abraham on Teen Mom OG.

The news comes a year after Bri beat out Mackenzie for the fifth spot on Teen Mom 2.

So even though the ladies will be starring on different shows, there's still a bit of bad blood there.

And that's not the only TM feud that DeJesus is involved with these days…

1. Briana Wins

Briana dejesus on teen mom 2
Briana edged out the competition in the battle for a spot on the Teen Mom 2 cast. Her closest rival was fellow Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee who was openly upset about being passed over.

2. Mackenzie Lets Loose

Mackenzie mckee is strong
McKee opened up about her feelings toward Briana in a recent interview and quoted DeJesus as saying, “‘Mackenzie’s salty and says blah blah blah about me having multiple baby daddies’… I did not say any of that,” McKee claims.

3. Oh, No She Didn’t

Mackenzie mckee son
“It was ridiculous,” Mackenzie added. “We haven’t talked since. The last time me and Bri talked she told me that I am a nutcase and that I need to get my tubes untied.”

4. Bri Sets the Record Straight

Briana dejesus photograph
Briana has never been the type to take such comments lying down, and in a recent conversation with The Hollywood Gossip, she informed us that Mackenzie’s comments are flat-out lies.

5. A Firm Denial

Briana dejesus nova and stella
“I didn’t call her a nutcase,” DeJesus added. “She spoke to some tabloids and said MTV made the wrong choice by picking me and I told her not to talk about me and that was pretty much it.

6. No Beef … But Some Salt

Briana dejesus post op photo
“I did call her salty because, let’s face it, she was being salty in how she responded to me being picked to join the Teen Mom 2 cast,” Bri continued. “I have no beef on my end but, honestly, jealousy can bring out the worst in people and this kind of was a case in point.”
