‘Teen Mom OG’ star Maci Bookout has been the subject of some intense media scrutiny lately, stemming from the rumors that she may very well be pregnant with her fourth child, but are these rumors based in fact?
Since some suggestive social media posts back in December, fans have been wondering if the reality show star is really about to bring another child into the world. However, the real answer may be slightly more complicated than the rumors go to suggest.
The post in question showcased Bookout advertising a sale on a line of clothing, but fans were quick to point out that the star had a noticeable bump on her tummy, leading them to believe that she is with child once again.
A subsequent article published by Champion Daily attempted to confirm the rumors, but didn’t provide substantial enough basis in fact for it to be considered such by any other outlets. On top of this, the lack of response by Bookout left the claim wholly unfounded.
Given the lack of reputability on the article, and the fact that it contradicted itself through an insider source following the initial post led fans to believe that maybe the rumors were unfounded.
“These rumors pop up all time. Literally for the past three years, there have been innumerable times that the press has reported Maci is pregnant or that a baby bump has been spotted. It’s clear that the media and fans want Maci to be pregnant, as it’s a story that keeps popping up,” the source commented.
“If she was to respond once, she’d have to continue responding each time they came out,” the source commented to ‘Champion Daily.’
“It would be a constant effort on her part of having to squash the stories and the rumors each time they were put out,” they continued.
However, despite not happening currently the idea of another baby is not completely off the table, said Bookout during a 2019 interview with US Weekly, where she entertained the idea of it potentially in the future.
“Taylor and I both always wanted to adopt. Now it’s just a matter of timing, and really accepting the process,” the MTV star told the publication in the middle of last year. “Because we don’t want to adopt a baby. And not that we only want one, but we are open to siblings also.”
She revealed that she is definitely open to the idea of adding another child to her family, but wants to wait until the ones she already has are a bit older before undertaking the task again.
