Maci Bookout was distraught on mastering ex Ryan Edwards had overdosed.
In a Wednesday, August 30, teaser for an upcoming episode of Teen Mother: The Upcoming Chapter, Maci, 32, gets to be psychological when recalling the harrowing incident.
“When I identified out that Ryan had overdosed, that is genuinely the first time I was genuinely fearful,” she shares as the camera cuts to a critical-on the lookout discussion involving Maci and her 15-calendar year-outdated son, Bentley, whom she shares with Ryan, 35. Whilst the temporary clip does not function Maci and Bentley conversing, it reveals the mom and son wanting significant.
“It’s so really hard,” she cries in a confessional.
Even though the teaser does not expose the timeline of Ryan’s overdose, the Tennessee native was observed “unconscious and unresponsive” in the driver’s seat of his truck in April, for each the arrest affidavit received by Us Weekly at the time. Ryan — who experienced already been arrested two times at the beginning of 2023 — was booked for straightforward possession of a controlled material and a DUI pursuing the incident, all through which “the vehicle’s entrance driver’s facet tire strike the control on the middle median wherever the car then came to a stop.”

Later that thirty day period, Ryan was sentenced to practically a single year in jail immediately after pleading guilty to harassing wife Mackenzie Edwards previously that calendar year. (Mackenzie — who shares 8-calendar year-aged son Jagger and 5-year-previous daughter Stella with Ryan — filed for divorce in February.)
For the duration of Ryan’s stint in jail, Maci solely told Us that his bond with Bentley experienced truly grown much better.
“I feel as nuts as it is, for the reason that he is in jail suitable now, he exhibits up and communicates with Bentley, I assume, extra continuously now than he ever has, which is thoughts-blowing,” she shared in July, ahead of the time 2 premiere of Teenager Mother: The Up coming Chapter. “It can make me come to feel very good as the mom to just know that like, even though Ryan manufactured genuinely undesirable selections and is spending the outcomes for them, I’m glad to see that that has not stopped him from exhibiting up or, like, calling and speaking because in the previous that would’ve halted almost everything.”
Ryan was unveiled from jail and into a midway house that similar month — and he would seem to be preserving up with his relationship with Bentley.
On August 27, Bentley shared a picture posing with his father, stepdad Taylor McKinney and grandfather Larry Edwards on the golfing system.
“Family,” the teenager captioned the sweet impression.
