'Teen Mom' Star Maci Bookout Reveals She Suffered A Devastating Miscarriage


Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is opening up about the painful experience of miscarrying a baby girl.

The mother-of-three revealed she suffered a miscarriage in a clip for the upcoming January 22 episode, which will give insight to her sorrow.

Bookout, 26, was at dinner with her husband Taylor McKinney, 28, where the pair discussed the prospect of having more children.

"We are not having another baby," Bookout told her husband. "You really want another child?"

"I love kids. I wouldn't be mad about it," McKinney responded.

The couple discussed their options, with Bookout mentioning she would like to adopt a child between the ages of four to six.

"If you seriously want to have another baby then I'll do it. But I still want to adopt too. If that's really what you want naturally I want to do it now," she said.

With McKinnley retorting: "If we want it to happen, it's going to happen like that."

That's when Bookout's miscarriage is brought up.

In the middle of discussing the possibility of expanding their family with her husband, Bookout said: "You're forgetting something."

She clarified to the show's producers she had previously suffered from a miscarriage.

"Her name is Dandy. Dandelion," Bookout told the producers, with McKinney responding: "I don't want to talk about it."

"I think it's important for people that are watching that we talk about it," Bookout followed up.

However, McKinney announced not even their closest relatives knew about the tragedy.

"I would like to talk to our parents about it first," he said.

Bookout and McKinney have two children: son Maverick Reed, 20 months, and two-year-old daughter Jayde. The reality star is also the mother to nine-year-old Bentley, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards.

Do you agree with Bookout that publicly discussing her miscarriage is important to people watching the show?
