Is it time for Teen Bride? Maci Bookout, star of Teen Mom OG, is (finally!) tying the knot with longtime love (and father of new baby Jayde) Taylor McKinney. And she’s sharing a sweet shot on her Instagram to celebrate.
Fans of the show know that Bookout has been hoping for a ring from McKinney for a while now, since the two welcomed Jayde in May. “We definitely want to get married and we’ve talked about it a lot,” she told People when she announced that they were expecting, a sentiment McKinney echoed (in his own way) on Dr. Drew: “I’ve been joking, when MTV gives me my next check, I’ll go ring shopping.”

That time has come, according to Bookout’s instagram: “Well y’all, my best friend asked me to marry him! I’m one lucky lady, I love you T!” she wrote on a shot of the couple kissing and her new ring clearly visible. It appears to be an oval-cut diamond on a pavé diamond ring, surrounded by a few more stacked pavé rings.
And not a moment too soon: When People spoke to Bookout earlier this month about whether marriage was in the cards, she said “That’s a good question. I’m still working on that one. Hopefully sometime soon, maybe, but I’d have to say you’re asking the wrong person.” So are more kids in the works now that she’s got a ring on her finger? “Definitely not any time soon,” she said, joking, “for Taylor and I, our daily goal is just to stay alive.”
Do you love her ring?
