Teen Mom Ryan Edwards Files Documents Demanding To See Kids

Things were a struggle for Ryan Edwards and Maci Bookout when working out custody of their son, Bentley. The two welcomed their first and only child together when they were teenagers in 2008. His birth was featured on 16 & Pregnant and the couple tried their best to make it work but they were not meant to be. Both Ryan and Maci moved on but, as seen on Teen Mom, co-parenting was not easy. Ryan’s substance problems became an issue and then he married Mackenzie Standifer Edwards with whom he had two children, a son and a daughter.

Of course, he still struggled, and, at the beginning of 2023, things finally came to a head between Ryan and Mackenzie. She filed for divorce and he went to jail. He then went to rehab where he met his current girlfriend, Amanda Conner. It was rumored she was making co-parenting virtually impossible but she does get along with Maci. Now, according to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Ryan is tired of the way Mackenzie is handling co-parenting and has filed court documents to modify the arrangement.

Ryan Edwards filed a “Motion to Adopt a Temporary Parenting Plan.” Apparently, Ryan was able to visit his children, Stella and Jagger at his mother’s home. However, he is stating Mackenzie no longer permits that and, in the filing, says this:

“Mother has recently refused to allow Father to exercise any parenting time with the minor children. This is not in the children’s best interest.”

Additionally, Ryan wants Mackenzie Standifer Edwards to be forced to pay his legal fees along with expenses for this filing. More so, he wants to be able to be around his children which has not happened in a few weeks.

Laughing At Ryan

Teen Mom fans who saw what Ryan Edwards was asking of Mackenzie had a lot of thoughts. They started a Reddit thread to discuss their feelings and just mocked him. More so, they were team Mackenzie Standifer Edwards:

  • Dude thinks 6 months “clean” time wipes away years of being a piece of sh*t junkie loser.
  • good luck with that one. she probably has an entire dossier of fucked up evidence showing he’s an unfit parent.
  • He couldn’t care less. His sneaky Papa probably told him if he has joint custody then he doesn’t have to pay child support. This has nothing to do with him missing his children.
  • There ain’t nothing like a dead-beat dad with a new girlfriend to impress.

Many just believed that it was his mother, father, or girlfriend who made him file and that he did not actually care. Time will tell if he gets what he wants.

Do you think Ryan will get all that he is asking for or is this just wishful thinking? Let us know and watch Teen Mom: The Next Chapter Thursdays on MTV.
