Teen Mom’s Maci Bookout admits she got emotional when celebrating Bentley’s third birthday. US Weekly published a preview clip of Tuesday’s episode showing Bentley inviting his dad Ryan Edwards to his party while Maci holds the phone.
“Bentley’s birthday was pretty emotional in dealing with the custody stuff with Ryan,” Bookout tells the magazine. “Birthdays and holidays are the hardest because we have to share him.”
The 21-year-old does approve of Edwards’ new girlfriend Dalis Connell.
“I’m a fan of her — she’s a really good girl. She’s responsible and really good with Bentley. I know [she and Ryan are] on and off a little bit and that’s aggravating because I don’t know what Bentley’s exposed to, but besides that, I’m rooting for her. I hope Ryan doesn’t screw this up!”
Maci gets $60,000 per season. She has said being on the MTV show has been a blessing in her life.
She confessed, “Without the show, I would’ve had to have a full-time job and be in school full-time and rarely ever get to spend time with Bentley. It’s been difficult, but it’s also been a big blessing.”
