TeenMomJunkies reported December 27 that a girl from Maci’s hometown confirmed the pregnancy. It was an open secret. The source reported that Maci would expect a baby girl and was, at most, 3 to 4 months pregnant. A second source said at the time that a friend went to their OBGYN for a prenatal appointment and Maci was at the same doctor’s office. The person wrote in a Facebook message: “My friend went to her OBGYN appointment and [saw] Maci there. Pregnant with her second baby? I’m so happy for her but wish she wouldn’t hide it.”
A few days later, and Maci has confirmed the pregnancy. She spoke to InTouch Weekly (via the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper), and confirmed she is expecting a daughter with Taylor.
“We still can’t believe it,” Maci exclaimed. “‘It was a huge shock but we are very excited.” She confirms she is 16-weeks pregnant and due to give birth in June 2015.
She continues, “This baby is such a blessing. I’m calling her my miracle baby.” Noting that she was sure she would never conceive again and spoke with Taylor about adoption. “I knew my chances of getting pregnant were very low.”
She first noticed something was different, however, when her legs became swollen and itched. “So we got a test and it said I was pregnant,” then she took four more to be sure. All positive. She tweeted December 16, “i am the luckiest girl in the world.”
Maci has a son, Bentley, 6, from a previous relationship when she was 16-years-old. Maci is currently filming the new season of Teen Mom.
“Last time there was a lot of worry and concern,” Maci admitted of her first pregnancy six years ago. Adding that this time should be easier. “It was just me and Bentley facing the world together and I had to figure things out as I went. This time I’m able to be excited because I’m older and able to give my baby the stability of the relationship that Taylor and I have.”
Maci says, she’s worried fans will judge her for getting pregnant again. “I’m a bit apprehensive… We are a little bit scared people will not be as supportive as we want them to be.” She’s also worried about having a girl, “I don’t know how! Plus I’m not a big fan of pink stuff.”
She adds, they’re not planning to get married as she doesn’t want to be a pregnant bride. However, she hopes to get engaged in 2015. “Obviously I wish we could be married first, but everything will come together afterwards.”
She is inset on this week’s cover too. Here’s the title “The shock of her life. Teen Mom Maci, ‘I’m pregnant.'”
