Maci Bookout Talks About Adding Baby #4 to Her Family

Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney

After having three kids -- two of them under the age of 2 -- Maci Bookout is someone you'd think might be done expanding her family. But now, it sounds like there's a chance it could still grow! Maci's considering adopting children, and her reason behind it is really sweet.


While talking to People recently, Maci revealed that while she and husband Taylor McKinney have no plans to have more children biologically, fostering and adopting is probably in their future. According to the Teen Mom OG star herself, it's something they've always wanted to do. 

Maci told the mag: 

For both of us, it's one of those things where if we are capable of providing a stable home, healthy relationships and some hope for a child who may not have that or ever experienced it, then we want to. If we are able to do that then why would we not? Plus, I think introducing our children to something like that and giving them that experience and for [the] other child to be able to have a sibling or healthy relationships with other children ... all kids deserve that. If we can give it to them then why wouldn't we?

Aww! That's such an awesome way to look at it!

Maci's making a lot of good points. If she and Taylor are willing and able to open up their home to children who need one, it's an incredible thing to do for a kid -- and judging by how great they've been to Bentley, Jayde, and Mav so far, any kid would be lucky to have them for parents.

Maci added that not only has she been inspired by family members who have adopted children, but her costars Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra have inspired her as well after they placed their first daughter, Carly, for adoption when she was born. Maci said: 

Watching Catelynn and Tyler's story and seeing how for them to be so strong and selfless to make that decision for Carly, and to see how proud they were to be able to give something like that to your daughter [helped].

We've always known that Maci has a big heart, but this basically seals it. We can't wait to see what this leads to for her in the future. We hope their kids are ready for more siblings!
