He may be busting out early. According to reports, Ryan Edwards is planning to leave rehab much sooner than originally expected, following the birth of his second son. The former Teen Mom OG star allegedly entered a facility sometime in August or September and was not able to attend his wife's labor and delivery with their baby boy. 

  • It was expected that Ry would miss the birth, but it's possible that missing the newborn days is making him reconsider how long he wants to stay in rehab.

    Mackenzie gave birth to their first child together on October 9, a baby boy named Jagger. The new little one joins Ryan's son Bentley with ex Maci Bookout and Mackenzie's son Hudson, also from a previous relationship. 

    It was originally reported that Ryan would be staying in rehab long-term, until February or March of 2019, but according to a new scoop from Radar Online, he may be back home as early as Thanksgiving.

  • No doubt that it's been tough on Mackenzie without her husband by her side, but we hope that Ryan is prioritizing his health.

    He's had a long battle with alleged drug addiction and even did a stint in rehab in the summer of 2017, although he only stayed a reported three weeks. Before checking himself in, he was arrested after a routine traffic stop, during which law enforcement officers reportedly discovered more than a dozen hypodermic needles in his car, along with a baggie of what appeared to be heroin. 

  • We know Ryan is probably dying to get home as much as Mackenzie is to have him home.

    She's even supposedly waiting until his return to release any photos of her new baby boy. The insider revealed to Radar, "She wants photos out there, but she wants to wait for Ryan to get home. She's probably going to wait for Ryan to come home to release any."

  • Hopefully Ryan is progressing much more quickly than originally anticipated, and that's why he may come home earlier than expected.

    As tough as it is for him to be away from his family right now, the most important thing is that he gets better and is able to break his addiction cycle. It may be incredibly hard right now, but it's what's best for everyone in the long run.
