Teen Mom OG’s Ryan Edwards Is Engaged to Girlfriend Mackenzie Standifer — See the Ring


It’s official! Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards is engaged to his girlfriend, Mackenzie Standifer. The reality star introduced fans to his now-fiancée during season 6 of the hit MTV show.

“A getting married” Edwards captioned a photo of a stunning oval diamond engagement ring, which he posted to Instagram Thursday, December 15, tagging their location as a Waffle House restaurant. In a comment on the photo, Standifer confirmed the engagement but clarified to a fan that “this did not happen at Waffle House.”

As documented on the Teen Mom, the duo moved in together shortly after they started dating. Their happy news comes after Edwards’ ex, Maci Bookout, married Taylor McKinney in October. Bookout and Edwards are the parents of 8-year-old son Bentley.

“I am so happy that when [Bentley] is with you, you can be his mother and treat him like your own child,” Bookout told Standifer in a recent episode. “I just want to let you know, I really, really appreciate you.”

Bookout, who is also the mom of two other kids with McKinney, added that she’s always wanted her ex to find true love.

“All I ever wanted was for Ryan to find someone that makes him happy and a woman that will treat my son, as their own child [when] I am not there,” she told her. “So, we are both his mother.”

Teen Mom OG airs Mondays on MTV at 9 p.m. ET.
