Ryan Edwards: Leaving Rehab Early to Finally Meet His Son?

Last week, we reported on the news that Ryan Edwards had checked into rehab after struggling with an opioid addiction for several years.

Shortly thereafter, the world learned that Edwards' wife, Mackenzie Standifer, had given birth to a son.

Jagger Edwards is the couples' first child together, but sadly, Ryan missed the birth due to his continued treatment.

As painful as the thought of missing his son's first weeks on the planet must have been, it was widely assumed that Edwards would remain in treatment in order to ensure that he receives the kind of help he needs.

Sadly, it doesn't look like that will be the case …

1. Taking the Right Steps

2. Joyous News

5. Plenty of Reasons

Of course, the fact that Ryan has been arrested three times in the past 18 months and is very keen on avoiding jail time probably also factored into his decision.

6. Easier Said Than Done

Ryan initially planned to remain in treatment for a minimum of three months, but now it seems his plans have changed …

Ryan Edwards: Will He Miss the Birth of His Son While In Rehab?

As we reported earlier today, Ryan Edwards is headed back to rehab.

If you’ve been following the sad saga of Edwards’ downward spiral, you know that’s undeniably good news.

Edwards has been arrested three times in the past 18 months as a result of his addictions, and his erratic behavior has endangered his loved ones on multiple occasions.

So it’s encouraging to learn that he’s finally getting serious about getting sober.

But the road to recovery is never an easy one, and according to a new report from Radar Online, Edwards will be making a major sacrifice early on in his sobriety journey.

Edwards’ wife, Mackenzie Standifer, is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child.

(Ryan and Mackenzie each have one child from previous relationships.)

Unfortunately, Edwards will be in treatment for the foreseeable future, and one insider tells Radar that Mackenzie is less than one week away from. giving birth.

“Mackenzie is expected to be induced on October 8,” says the source.

“She is naming her son Jagger Ryan Edwards.”

The insider goes on to confirm that Mackenzie has no expectation that Ryan will be present when her son enters the world:

“I believe her mom and her aunt will be in the delivery room with her,” the source adds.

Not only will Ryan miss the birth of his child, it may be several months before he even meets little Jagger.

“[Ryan] isn’t supposed to be out [of rehab] until February or March,” a different insider claims.

Meanwhile, it remains unclear if Ryan and Mackenzie are still a couple.

One source claims that even before Ryan checked into rehab, he and Mackenzie were no longer living together.

“Mackenzie moved out of the lake house they were living in,” the insider says.

“[She] is now living with her parents.”

Despite that development, Mackenzie recently claimed that she and Ryan are still going strong:

“I’m so sorry but I will continue to stand up for what I believe in no matter how chopped, edited, and jumbled it may be,” Standifer wrote in an Instagram post.

“I have stuck by my husband through some of the darkest times imaginable,” she added.

“Have mistakes been made? Hell yes,” Standifer continued.

“Have they been accounted for, dealt with and resolved, yep.”

So it sounds like, for the time being at least, Mackenzie is planning to ride this thing out.

We wish her and Ryan all the best through the difficult time ahead.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.


Ryan Edwards: Off to Rehab for a Long, Long Time

Ryan Edwards’ arrest record has been cause for alarm, and so has his substance abuse. Plus, you know, that time he threatened to murder Taylor McKinney.

But though we don’t get to say this often, folks, but we have actual good news about Ryan.

He is in rehab — and it looks like he’s in for the long haul.

RadarOnline reports that Ryan Edwards is in rehab.

This isn’t his first time — he went last year, after nodding off en route to his own wedding.

His first time in rehab was apparently in 2012.

But according to RadarOnline‘s source, “[Ryan] isn’t supposed to be out [of rehab] until February or March.”

That means that he may be in for a 6-month stint … and may miss the birth of his son.

“Mackenzie moved out of the lake house they were living in,” the insider shared. “And is now living with her parents.”

RadarOnline also reached out to Larry Edwards, Ryan’s father, for confirmation.

The tabloid did not receive confirmation — or a denial.

When asked about rehab, Larry said: “You know I can’t comment on that.”

When asked about whether Ryan will miss the birth of his son, Larry said: “You know I can’t say.”

The Tennessee court system was also unable to confirm or deny whether Ryan’s rehab stint was voluntary or court-ordered.

As the good folks over at The Ashley have noted, Mackenzie has taken to social media and publicly doubled down on supporting her troubled husband.

Mackenzie wrote: “I’m so sorry but I will continue to stand up for what I believe in no matter how chopped, edited, and jumbled it may be.”

“I have stuck by my husband through some of the darkest times imaginable,” she affirms.

“Have mistakes been made? Hell yes,” she admits. “Have they been accounted for, dealt with and resolved, yep.”

“Why do I post pictures of my husband and myself?” she asks. “Because we do love each other. And that is real life.”

“If you want to fault me for standing by my husband and sticking to my vows,” she says. “Then don’t follow me.”

Ryan Edwards’ criminal history is troubling enough.

But his latest incident is much more alarming than your more garden-variety heroin possession.

After Taylor McKinney made a relatively mild jab at Ryan and Mackenzie, subtweeting that they were unable to function as adults, Ryan lost it.

He reportedly contacted Taylor and threatened to show up and murder him.

That did not go well for Ryan. Not with the legal system, and not with fans.

His behavior has appeared to worsen with time rather than improve.

That is why fans were encouraging Mackenzie to move on without Ryan.

That, of course, and the fact that many don’t see Ryan as a good father. Even Maci Bookout thinks Ryan is a danger to Bentley.

We of course hope that Ryan can turn things around in terms of his behavior during this lengthy rehab stay that RadarOnline is reporting.

(It is, of course, not quite confirmed — but we hope that it’s true)

He needs to get better for himself, but also for everyone around him.


Maci Bookout: Ryan Edwards Is FINALLY Being a Dad to Bentley!

If you’ve been keeping up on the tumultuous life of Ryan Edwards, then you’re probably aware that Maci Bookout’s baby daddy has been having an extremely rough go of it lately.

Granted, most of his problems are self-created, but that doesn’t make the situation any less painful for everyone involved.

And sadly, no one has suffered quite as much as Ryan’s son, Bentley.

As you may know, Maci obtained a restraining order against Ryan earlier this year, which prohibited him from having any contact with the 9-year-old.

That may sound harsh, but considering Ryan had threatened to kill her husband, Maci was really left with little choice.

And we’re not even getting into Ryan’s many drug arrests and persistent refusal to seek treatment.

At first, it seemed to be one of those situations that would simply never improve.

But miraculously, it now looks as though Ryan has re-entered his son’s life — with a lot of help from Maci.

“Bentley has gotten older and is kind of understanding a little bit more about what’s going on. I don’t want to say they’ve gotten closer, but I think that it’s gotten healthier only because I think it relieves some of the pressure from each of them,” Bookout, told Us Weekly in a recent exclusive interview.

“Bentley was a child, like, wondering what’s really going on,” she added.

“I think if the right steps are taken from here, then it will end up good.”

Maci went on to say that she’s struggled with how much information she should share with Bentley, torn between wanting to protect her child and wanting him to know the truth:

“You don’t want to smother them, but you also want to make sure that they come to you with anything that they’re thinking or feeling or any questions that they may want answers to,” she said.

“It’s really just a matter of keeping the line of communication open and also making sure that we aren’t telling too much or giving too much of our feelings or opinions,” Maci added.

“It’s more about information, rather than speaking about his dad because at the end of the day, Ryan is still his dad,” Bookout concluded.

“Neither one of us want to ever put some sort of barrier between the possibility of a better relationship when it comes to Ryan and Bentley.”

Needless to say, this is the first good news on Ryan we’ve received in quite some time.

And it sounds like we mostly have Maci to thank for it.
