Teen Mom OG: Bentley Meets His New Baby Brother While Dad Ryan Edwards Remains in Rehab
While Bentley was present for the delivery, Ryan had to miss the birth after returning to rehab earlier this year
“He looks like Daddy a lot,” Bentley, 10, tells Bookout and stepdad Taylor McKinney after returning home from the hospital.
Mackenzie gave birth to her first child with Ryan — son Jagger Ryan Edwards — on Oct. 9.
“We were there for 10 hours,” Bentley says of the long delivery. “[He was] 6 lbs. 15 oz and 19 inches.”
Jagger is Mackenzie’s second child. She also has son Hudson, 4, from a previous relationship.
While Bentley was present for the delivery, Ryan had to miss the birth after returning to rehab earlier this year.
“It’s called a 90-day intensive rehab facility,” Mackenzie’s mother-in-law Jen said in an October episode. “We can’t talk to him for seven days. They’re pretty strict. Two phone calls a week, 10 minutes [for each phone call].”
Due to the length of the program, Ryan and Mackenzie knew he would miss the birth of their first child together.
“If I did not love Ryan I would call him the most selfish a—— ever for missing this,” she said. “[But] if he’s going to miss [the baby] being born but be healthy forever, what more could I ask for?”
Ryan and Mackenzie secretly tied the knot before Ryan headed to rehab for the first time back in May, and they exchanged vows at a church ceremony in November 2017.
In an April episode of Teen Mom OG, Mackenzie confirmed her pregnancy when she showed a positive test to producer Jeni, who quickly hugged and congratulated her.
When asked if her husband was happy, Mackenzie said, “[He] was so excited, he couldn’t contain himself.”
Teen Mom OG airs Mondays (9 p.m. ET) on MTV.
