Even though we are just now watching the lead-up to their January breakup play out in the final season of Teen Mom, Maci Bookout and ex-boyfriend Kyle King have been spending lots o' time together again. So much time that, without either really admitting it, we could tell the two aren't only friends ... or at least, won't be for much longer. But now Maci's gone and confirmed what we already suspected ... She told Us Weekly exclusive that she'd be lying if she said she didn't think this Kyle is "The One." Whoa!
But don't expect Maci and her 3-year-old Bentley to be moving back in just yet ...
I think Kyle and I could make things work right now. But we'd rather figure ourselves out first and then try to make a life together. ... There's obviously a reason he's still around, [but] I've taken a step back and realized I'm only 20. There's no need to rush into anything.
Color me impressed! Seems like this isn't the first time Maci's seemingly proven herself to be lightyears ahead of quite a few of her Teen Mom colleagues when it comes to her maturity and wisdom. (I swear, I think she and Kailyn Lowry were hired as the PR foils to their totally wild and crazy counterparts Amber Portwood and Jenelle Evans!)
She's 100 percent right. There really is no reason to rush. It doesn't even matter that she's only 20 -- although that's just one more very good point she makes. (She may be a mom already, but that doesn't mean she isn't still so young.) Regardless -- anytime you consider getting back with an ex, you'd do well to proceed with caution. Especially when you're talking about re-introducing a man into your child's life!
And I love that she wants to make room and time to "figure themselves out." Hopefully what she means is re-examining the past to figure out if they've really gotten over or outgrown whatever drove them apart last time. Seems like if they can do that, they'll know have what it takes to make it work -- and last -- this time.
Are you rooting for Macy and Kyle to get back together? Do you think she has a healthy, mature attitude about their relationship?
