Maci Bookout has always been open about her health. She’s even shared her diagnosis with polycystic ovarian syndrome before welcoming her daughter Jayde Carter. Recently, a new health scare emerged which was initially identified as a mysterious “health crisis.” According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, the crisis turned out to be linked to medical complications Maci believes are related to her breast implants. Fans had been speculating about her potential plastic surgery since as early as 2020, but only recently did these speculations turn into serious health concerns.

A Rollercoaster Relationship with Ex, Ryan Edwards

Parenting comes with its unique challenges, and when the other parent is in and out of jail, those challenges can multiply. Maci Bookout’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Ryan Edwards, has been fraught with drama from the beginning. Despite Ryan’s unstable lifestyle, Maci revealed in a July 2023 interview with Us Weekly that his relationship with their son, Bentley, has actually improved. “[Ryan] shows up and communicates with Bentley, I think, more consistently now than he ever has, which is mind-blowing,” Maci disclosed.

Another challenge Maci has been dealing with is raising her now 14-year-old son Bentley. In a candid chat with People, Maci shared the difficulties of parenting a teenager. “Teenage years are an absolute blast and they are an absolute struggle,” she said. Bentley is beginning to seek more independence, challenging Maci to step back and allow him to make his own decisions, even when she knows they might not work out.
