'Teen Mom' Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer's kid's gender and name reportedly leaked
Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer did not have much time to celebrate the baby news since he was arrested on drug-related charges.
Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer may have had very little time to share their joy upon realizing they are expecting as Ryan was arrested on heroin charges a day after the couple broke the big news. Even though the pair has been tight-lipped about any details on their kids, thanks to a source close to them, we now know the gender and the possible name of their child.
A source close to the pair told Radar Online that Mackenzie is due on October 16 and the pair is expecting a boy. If this is true, this will mean that it will be the third boy for the couple. Ryan shares 9-year-old Bentley with ex Maci Bookout, and Mackenzie has 3-year-old Hudson from a previous marriage. 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. The news about the pair expecting came a day before Ryan was arrested on charges which said: “petition to revoke (simple possession of heroin).” The reality star was arrested at his house when the police executed a warrant for violating probation.
Ever since the news about his drug addiction came to light, it has been reported that Mackenzie has been in denial about the entire situation. "Mackenzie is in complete abject denial about Ryan’s drug addiction and issues surrounding how very, very serious it truly is," a source close to the pair told US Weekly.
"Mackenzie only wants to focus on having his baby and seems to be hoping that this will help him to be inspired to live a clean and sober life." On the other hand, Ryan had been running away from seeing the seriousness of the incident he has landed himself in. "Ryan denies the seriousness of the drug addiction, like any addict, will do, and Mackenzie chooses to believe him," the source continued.
The source added that Edward's sobriety was a cause of concern at the Teen Mom OG reunion. "There was real concern for Ryan’s sobriety at the reunion and he was urged to get further treatment by those close to the show off-camera, but refused. There is a genuine and real fear that Ryan could die because of his drug addiction," the source revealed. As of now, the Teen Mom star is seeking treatment.
