Four years ago, we met Maci Bookout, a teen mom whose struggle to handle high school heartache was intensified by the hardship of being a young parent. Over the course of four "Teen Mom" seasons, we had the pleasure of watching her grow up into a well-adjusted young adult, and fans of the show have really missed following the spunky redhead's personal life since the big finale. But y'all are in luck, because soon, she'll be back!
To add to her duties as "Teen Mom 2" online After Show host, MTV will officially air "Being Maci," a special devoted to the fan favorite, on Sunday, August 18 at 10/9c. The one-hour show will follow 21-year-old Maci in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as she spends time with friends, sorts through local drama and, of course, takes care of her main man, four-year-old Bentley. In the video below, she and her son (who is so big now we're half-expecting him to start driving soon) announce it proudly. And where do Ryan and Maci stand these days? Well, after Ryan's GF, Dalis, storms off after a fight, he and Maci find themselves in familiar, flirty territory. Oh, boy, the more things change over time, the more they sure do stay the same...
+ Are you as pumped for "Being Maci" as we are?! Sound off in the comments, and for even more Maci, stay tuned to the blog, as she'll be hosting the "Teen Mom 3" online After Show each week, starting with the double-episode premiere on Monday, August 26 at 10p/9c! Plus, sit back and relax starting at noon on August 18 for a "16 And Pregnant" marathon that'll lead right into Maci's special!
