Three kids and counting! Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney are already parents to three amazing kiddos, and it doesn't look like they're done yet. In an interview with Us Weekly, the Teen Mom OG stars opened up about their family plans, and adding a fourth to their brood.

  • It turns out the couple has tentative plans to adopt.

    Maci has already had three babies herself, Bentley, 9 (with ex Ryan Edwards), and Jayde, 3, and Maverick, 2, with Taylor. She even suffered a miscarriage at some point after giving birth to Mav, but she's definitely looking into the adoption route for baby number four.

    She explained, "We are definitely still wanting to adopt. We don't really have, like, a timeframe or, like, an exact answer. I feel like when we know to start the process, we will start it, but for now we're happy with where we're at."

  • Maci also opened up about how much her kids are growing up these days.

    She said Bentley is in fourth grade now, and is "moving into more the young-man age instead of just kid-child," and that the toddlers are "a trip." She shared, "Jayde and Maverick are just Jayde and Maverick. They’re gonna be -- Oh God, I feel bad for the world. Maverick got his first haircut -- had to say bye to the man bun. Sad about that, but I mean, really they're a trip."

  • One positive change in their life recently has been Bentley's renewed relationship with his dad, Ryan Edwards.

    There's a court order preventing Ryan from seeing Maci, Taylor, Jayde, or Maverick, but he's been able to at least see his son again. And despite their past tumultuous relationship, Maci just wants things to be good between her son and his father. 

    She said, "It's really just a matter of keeping the line of communication open and also making sure that we aren't telling too much or giving too much of our feelings or opinions. It's more about information, rather than speaking about his dad because at the end of the day, Ryan is still his dad. Neither one of us want to ever put some sort of barrier between the possibility of a better relationship when it comes to Ryan and Bentley."

  • No matter how these two decide to add to their family, we can't wait!

    Of course, if they ultimate decide they're done, we'll be cool with that too. They have to do what's best for them, after all. But we'd be lying if we said we didn't secretly hope they decide to go for another one. They're such awesome parents -- any kid would be lucky to have them.
