Baby rumors have been swirling around them for a couple of months now, and it looks like this time it's official. Mackeznie Standifer and Ryan Edwards are reportedly expecting their first child together, based on what went down in a new Teen Mom OG sneak peek. In the episode that will air next week, Mackenzie is seen taking a pregnancy test, and lo and behold, the results turn up positive, making her the latest star of the franchise we can go ahead and put on baby bump watch.

  • While this is the couple's first child together, Mackenzie has a son from a previous relationship.

    The new little sibling will join 4-year-old Hudson, and will also be the younger brother or sister to Ryan Edwards's son, 9-year-old Bentley, whom he shares with Maci Bookout.

  • We honestly smelled this big announcement coming from a mile away.

    On last week's episode of Teen Mom OG, Ryan and Mackenzie opened up about trying to get pregnant, to which Ryan commented, "I'm ready when you're ready, but I don't think I'll ever be totally ready!"

  • Ryan and Mackenzie have yet to make a statement about their big news, but we're sure they're over the moon.

    After a rocky 2017 with Ryan entering rehab to combat his issues with drugs, it looks like 2018 is shaping up to be much more positive for him and for his growing family. However, earlier this month, a source claimed that Ryan was back in treatment, after failing a court-ordered drug test for meth and "various types of pills." Supposedly he even had his visitation with Bentley denied because of the test, which prompted him to enter the FOCUS Recovery program.

    Mackenzie Standifer responded to the rumors, telling Radar Online the story was "not true at all," and added, "He's right here next to me. It's disgusting to say something that has absolutely no merit. If Ryan failed a court-ordered drug test, he would be in jail."

  • We're so glad to hear that Ryan is on the right path now and is turning his life around.

    Congrats to Mackenzie, Ryan, Hudson, and Bentley. We can't wait to hear more about your newest addition to the family!
