Maci Bookout & Ryan Edwards Put Their Differences Aside for Bentley (PHOTOS)

Blended families are always a tough situation, but these Teen Mom OG stars seem to have nailed it. Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards came together to celebrate Bentley's birthday, and there's no doubt that the brand-new 7-year-old had the best time ever.


Um, can we please first take a moment to appreciate the fact that Bentley is SEVEN? How the heck did that happen? It seems like just last week Maci was a scared teen on MTV's brand-new reality show 16 and Pregnant ...

Maci captured the sweet photo above, and shared a special birthday message for Bentley, saying:

Today my first baby turned 7! Bentley, thank you for bringing true love into my heart, for making me a fighter, and for giving me the confidence to teach you the way of the world. i love you so deeply, more than you will ever ever know. i am so blessed that God chose me to be your mother. I am so proud of the little gentleman that you have become. Happy Birthday Bentley, remember that you will always be my baby!

Ack, is that the sweetest message ever? Even sweeter -- Maci invited her ex-fiancé Ryan Edwards to be part of the celebration. And his mom too! Maci is certainly all about family, because Ryan's mom (who often visits with Bentley) posted some super-sweet pics of the blended family all making nice for B's birthday.

I absolutely adore that Maci and Ryan can get together (with grandparents too!) for the sake of their son. Just because things didn't work out between the two of them doesn't mean that their son needs to suffer.

And from the looks of it, Bentley is doing just fine. Happy birthday, little man!
