Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout and boyfriend Taylor McKinney finally posted the first photos of their daughter Jayde Carter McKinney on their Twitter and Instagram accounts on Thursday. The couple welcomed the baby girl in their home at Chattanooga, Tennessee and the baby was on her fifth week when they decided to let the rest of the world and their 3.6 million followers see her as well.
She posted the photo after first teasing fans on Twitter with question. Shortly after, Maci posted the photo with the caption “Introducing the prettiest girl in the world.” This is their first child and they thanked the photographer Brittany Photographs for taking the ultra-memorable photos. Maci’s eldest son Bentley, fathered by her Ryan Edwards, also welcomed his half-sister with joy. Maci was originally pregnant with Bentley in 2008 and this was the story arc that shot her to fame with MTV series 16 and Pregnant. Her current show Teen Mom OG is a spinoff from the said original show.
This pregnancy is extra special to both Maci and Taylor because she was reportedly diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome which will make it hard for her to conceive again, according to In Touch Weekly. The fact that she was able to give birth again is a blessing to both of them and she admitted that it came as a real shock.
Daddy Taylor also posted on his own Instagram account to proudly show his daughter to his followers, including a fun shot with their puppy Bonnie. Even the professional photographer Brittany Shope posted that she was moved by the captured moments during the shoot and it made her love her job all the more as a photographer. Teen Mom 2 actress Javi Marroquin immediately tweeted her congratulations to the happy parents and joined the happy followers of the couple for their bundle of joy.
