MTV’s Maci Bookout and her baby daddy just couldn’t make it work, but the former Teen Mom star still believes in love.
“I love my perfect lover Kyle King!” gushed Maci via Twitter. Kyle is an old childhood friend who came into the young mother’s life at just the right time.
Maci was dating Ryan Edwards when she had his son, Bentley, in October 2008. The young parents tried to make it work and even moved in together, but it just wasn’t meant to be.
Maci has since moved to Nashville from her parents home in Chattanooga, Tenn. to be closer to her new flame. She tells Us Weekly that Kyle has no qualms about her being a mother. “Since he wasn’t scared, he put me at ease,” she says. ”He’s responsible, fun and incredibly caring, and he’s just a lot more mature than most guys.”
Now that Bentley (pictured here with Maci and Dr. Oz) is 2-1/2, Maci is ready to move forward professionally, too. In addition to writing a book about teen pregnancy, the reality star is also hopeful that she’ll be invited to become a contestant on Dancing With The Stars… just like her pal Bristol Palin.
Do you think Maci has found lasting love?
