Though the two called it quits when it came to their relationship, they share custody of their adorable 22-month-old son, Bentley. And, judging by Ryan’s ice-cold attitude towards the teen mom, I’d say that’s about all these former lovers share.
“We barely speak,” Maci, now 19-years-old, tells Us Weekly. “But I don’t think it’s a bad thing. We just try to avoid arguments as much as possible.”
Don’t be fooled. Avoiding arguments does not mean this strong woman is a push over. When it comes to raising her son, Maci explains that she is the disciplinary parent- and for good reason! The teen explains, “I think Ryan spoils Bentley and really has no boundaries as far as discipline. With me, I don’t want Bentley to grow up and be a brat when he’s 4 years old.”
As for Ryan’s parenting technique? According to Maci, it’s essentially non-existent. “As far as Bentley getting fed, his diaper changed, taking a bath, it’s mainly Ryan’s mom doing all of that,” Bookout says.
How will this co-parenting situation impact Bentley’s life?
