Teen Mom: OG’s Maci Bookout has opened up about expecting her second child.
“It’s a positive experience and I feel like I’m allowed to be happy and allowed to be excited,” the Teen Mom: OG reality star told E! News. She continued of being pregnant in her 20s versus in her teens and broadcasting it on television both times: “Before, it was just negative. I wanted to hide from the world and not talk about it because I was only 16.”
This time, she admits, “It’s been nice to be able to enjoy it.
“As far as the pregnancy itself, it’s been very similar,” she confesses. “I’ve been blessed with two very easy pregnancies thank goodness and not too bad of symptoms.”
Maci has revealed the name of the baby she is expecting in June with her boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, “It’s Jayde and her middle name is Carter. No more changes. We finally agree and really feel like this is the perfect fit.” Baby girl Jayde will join her big brother, Bentley, 6.
Previously, Maci admitted: “I don’t feel as connected to the pregnancy as I did before. I’m so afraid I’m not going to like her! I keep comparing her to Bentley and there’s no way I can love someone as much as I love Bentley.”
However, she explained, “I have an older brother and my mom says she felt the same way. So I’m not too worried about it, but it is a strange feeling.”
