Fans of Teen Mom OG are very familiar with Ryan Edwards. He was in a relationship with Maci Bookout, and is father to her son Bentley. But fans know that their relationship ended, and now Bookout has a restraining order against him. Edwards has certainly been in and out of trouble over the years. Now, fans are claiming that things may finally be looking up for him, based on recent social media posts.
Edwards is now married to Mackenzie Standifier, with whom he has one child and another on the way. Based on pictures she's recently shared, it looks to fans like Edwards may finally be on the upswing.
In the past, Edwards has had several arrests and a stint in rehab for heroin addiction. All of this is what led Bookout to declare that she's done with him and the "drama." On the most recent Teen Mom OG reunion, she went further into detail about her feelings on Edwards.
“I’m not even really looking for an apology,” she said, according to PEOPLE. “I think having a conversation and hearing how he would like to see [his relationship with Bentley] get better and knowing he does want this. Besides that, just really putting in the effort and being consistent.”
She adds that while she is open to speaking to Edwards in the future, "there’s nothing I have to hear."
And given the acrimonious relationship between Bookout and Edwards, fans fear for his relationship with Standifier as well. Especially if his addiction and unlawful behavior is still something that she has to worry about. Because of this, many have left comments on her Instagram posts warning her to be cautious with Edwards.
"Why in the world would you bring another child into this situation... Another baby isn't going to change Ryan," one commenter wrote on a post Standifier shared of the couple and all their children.
The couple's relationship hasn't been smooth sailing either. Around Ryan's arrest and time in jail earlier this year, there have been plenty of reports about friction between the couple. RadarOnline reports that he was banned from Easter dinner with Mackenzie's family shortly after his time in jail.
But it seems the couple is putting everything behind them, especially with the announcement of Mackenzie's pregnancy. In a recent post featuring Ryan, people say he's looking much better than he has in a while.
"Ryan is looking good here! I see the cool guy coming back!!" one person says. "Ryan looks good! Happy for you two!" says another.
Only time will tell if Edwards is truly better, but looks like he may be on the right track.
