Ouch! Though Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout has banned the MTV cameras from filming her son, Bentley, the reality star, 24, has no problem giving fans an update on the little boy on social media. On Monday, Nov. 16, the Tennessee native posted a selfie with Bentley from his hospital bed via Instagram.

“early morning at the hospital with this tough fella' time for a tonsillectomy! #byebyestrep #gigglejuice,” Bookout captioned the pic of Bentley making a funny face.

Bookout, who shares Bentley with her ex Ryan Edwards, recently celebrated her son’s seventh birthday on Oct. 27.

“bentley, thank you for bringing true love into my heart, for making me a fighter, and for giving me the confidence to teach you the way of the world,” she captioned a Facebook pic. “i love you so deeply, more than you will ever ever know. i am so blessed that God chose me to be your mother. I am so proud of the little gentleman that you have become.”

The Teen Mom OG star banned MTV cameras from filming her son during this past season of the hit series. Her decision came after producers agreed to bring back controversial star Farrah Abraham.

This year Bentley has also become a big brother after Bookout welcomed daughter Jayde Carter, 5 months, with her live-in boyfriend, Taylor McKinney, in May.
