Teen Mom Maci Bookout & troubled baby daddy Ryan Edwards look unrecognizable in throwback pic as fans say he's 'so hot'

RYAN Edwards and Maci Bookout look like two different people in a rare throwback photo. But fans have differing opinions on whether that is a good thing or not.

A fan recently shared the throwback pic of the former Teen Mom OG couple on Reddit.

The two look decades younger, as they sit next to each other on a plane.

Maci is smiling, while Ryan offers a stoic expression which has sent his modern day fans screaming in delight, while also wondering what might have been.

"Rhine was such a f**king smoke show," one fan commented. "Sweet Jesus, imagine how good he'd look now if he never touched heroin."

Another fan added: "He was so hot. Drugs are bad."

And a third admitted: "I get it. I'd have let hot Rhine get me pregnant too. Maci was really punching up."

The comments weren't as kind for Maci, who, among other things was compared to a "hot dog," "leather wallet," and a "Cheeto."

"Hair and skin the same color," one person noted. "Girl needed some contrast."

Another piled on: "I like how Maci's face matches her hair."

While one person found a different comparison: "Wow, she looks like an Oompa Loompa."


Ryan, 34, and Maci, 30, had a difficult relationship.

After discovering that she was pregnant at 16, Maci gave birth to their son, Bentley Edwards, in October 2008.

Ryan and Maci got engaged a year later, but soon after called it off.

The relationship ended in 2010. Ryan went on to marry MacKenzie Standifer, and shares son Jagger, daughter Stella and stepson Hudson.

Maci married now-husband Taylor McKinney in 2016.The couple share six-year-old daughter Jayde and five-year-old son Maverick.


Most recently, Maci admitted that she could not "remember when was the last time she spoke to" her troubled ex and baby daddy Ryan.

On the opening of the latest Teen Mom: Family Reunion episode, the reality star mentioned she had been part of show for about 13 years. 

She said: "Ryan is my oldest son's biological father."

During the footage, the former couple appeared to be yelling at each other just before the reality star stormed out of the car.

Maci added: "I couldn't tell you the last time I spoke to him."


Bentley became estranged from his father due to his father's long battle with substance abuse and rehab stint in 2018.

Ryan has struggled with heroin abuse, as he has been in and out of rehab and jail over the years. 

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Ryan insisted he is sober today.

He said: “I can see why he made the comment, but really I was just exhausted 99 percent of the time.

“Staying up all night then helping Mackenzie with kids in the day. That’s in between going back to the garage building my buggy to try and get it done for King of the Hammers off-road race.”

The former reality star builds and fabricates buggy cars for off-road races. 

He added: “There were many nights I would work so long, I would just sit down for 15-20 min in the shop and nap for that long and get back to it.

“Imagine hand-building and fabricating everything you see on a car by yourself in a little less than a year. Covid ended up getting in the way too much and I didn’t get it done in time, but we will get there next year!”
