AceShowbiz - Ryan Edwards' wife Mackenzie Standifer and his ex Maci Bookout appeared to be in a friendly relationship in the latter's latest Instagram post. While the former "Teen Mom" star is serving time in a Tennessee jail, the two moms seeming had called a truce as they posed together in a sweet family photo.
The photo featured Maci and Mackenzie smiling widely at the camera as they were joined by their kids. Spotted in the photo were Maci and Ryan's son, Bentley, 10, her two other children with Taylor McKinney, daughter, Jade, 3, and son, Maverick, 2. Mackenzie and Ryan's 4-month-old son, Jagger was also in the picture. Hudson, 4, Mackenzie's son with ex-husband, Zachary Stephens, were also among the kids in the snap.
"Family isn't an important thing, it’s everything. Safe to say Jayde is never going to have a boyfriend," Maci wrote in the caption.
Fans were so happy to see them putting their differences behind. "Love this!!! You ladies are amazing to do this together," one fan praised in the comment section. "You're truly a wonderful human being! This is beautiful... You are correct, family is absolutely everything! Keep shining girl!" another fan added. Another comment read, "Maci, you're a class act! This speaks volumes. what an example you’re setting for Bentley."
Of their decision to mend their relationship, source close to Mackenzie said to HollywoodLife.com, "Maci and Mackenzie wanted to put their differences aside for the sake of their families, and especially for their children. With Ryan away, Mackenzie was beginning to feel alone and fearful at the thought of having to raise their son on her own if Ryan keeps getting into trouble with the law."
"Mackenzie felt like Maci was one of the few people who understood what she was going through with Ryan and wanted to make amends," the insider went on saying. "It was also very important to Mackenzie that Jagger have a happy, healthy relationship with his half-brother."
Ryan was initially arrested after walking out without paying his bar tab while on probation for a 2017 possession of heroin charge. However, the Hamilton County General Session Clerk of Court revealed that his theft of service under $1,000 charge had been dismissed in a court that took place on Monday at 8:30 A.M.
The Chattanooga Police Department previously confirmed that a server at Bud's Sports Bar on Brainerd Road filed a complaint against the star in December 2018. The bartender claimed that Ryan ordered "six Jack Daniels whiskey drinks" before leaving without paying them.
Ryan will be behind the bars until April 15.
