Ryan Edwards' wife Mackenzie shows off her growing baby bump in her latest picture
Mackenzie shot this picture when she was 20 months pregnant and can't wait to have a maternity shoot once her bump grows bigger. Ryan and she are expecting a boy.
Teen Mom star Ryan Edwards was arrested on account of heroin charges just a day after he and his wife Mackenzie revealed that they were pregnant. In a photo which was taken by photographer Christian George, Mackenzie can be seen showing off her growing baby bump in a green dress. Talking to Radar Online, Mackenzie revealed that she is 20 weeks in that picture. "I'm over halfway finished with the pregnancy and my belly still isn't big enough yet for maternity photo!" she added.
The reality star added that she is "feeling fine" and son Hudson from her previous marriage, as well as, her stepson Bently, was excited to take on the role of being a big brother. Even though Mackenzie looks great in the picture, she did confess she plans on having a maternity photoshoot soon. Mackenzie deleted her Instagram post after Ryan was arrested but later, she allowed her friend Christian to take over it.
Ryan was arrested on March 27 in Tennessee by the Red Bank Police Department. His charge was listed as “petition to revoke (simple possession of heroin).” TMZ reported that the reality star was arrested at his house when the police executed a warrant for violating probation. Prior to his arrest, Ryan had checked into rehab for his drug problems. In one of the episodes of the MTV reality show, Teen Mom, Mackenzie said that Ryan had been spending a lot of money on his addiction. “He said that he was using three times a day,” she told a producer after visiting him in rehab. “Ten thousand dollars a week!”
The couple secretly tied the knot before Ryan decided to head back to rehab last May and later exchanged vows in a church ceremony held in November. In one of the Season 6 episodes, it was revealed that the two were about to elope but on the way, Mackenzie doubted Ryan’s sobriety and questioned if he was under the influence of Xanax.
She started having her doubts after he began swerving while driving and his eyes looked visibly glazed and he was squinting. Soon after the episode aired, he decided to enter rehab. “A little over 30 days ago, I made the decision to check myself into a rehabilitation facility. I am back home now doing well, and life could not be better,” he said in a statement at the time.
“Without the support of my wife and parents, I would not have been able to do this. Thank you all for your good wishes.” Previously, a source close to the couple told Radar Online that Mackenzie is due on October 16 and the pair is expecting a boy. The source went on to add that the pair has chosen quite a unique name for their son. "They plan to name their son Jagger," the source added.
