Maci Bookout Shares Important Message in Stunning Post Baby Photo

Remember earlier this week, when Maci Bookout made her first public appearance after giving birth to baby Jayde in May, and everyone freaked out because she looked a little more full-figured than usual? The Teen Mom OG star has since posted a selfie on her Instagram that should stop the haters in their tracks, because girlfriend looks gorgeous.


Take a look at this stunner:

Maci said she took the photo because she finally had a chance to put on a little makeup and brush her hair to attend her son Bentley's baseball game, in between all of the bottles and diapers for Jayde.

But she also shared a really important message. She wrote, I've realized that parenthood is hard work at any age, and that's why it's so important to wait until you're really ready to start a family. I can't help thinking how much more prepared I feel this time around." She also added the hashtag #NoTeenPreg.

Maci has been an outspoken advocate of contraceptive education since she got pregnant at 16 because she didn't understand that birth control was available to her. Obviously, she loves Benny more than life, and wouldn't trade him, but it is dang hard to be a teen mom.

It's so awesome that she's willing to use her platform to educate others about something as important as preventing teen pregnancy!

Are you amazed at how lovely Maci looks less than a month after having a baby?
