We admit we were pretty shocked when Mackenzie Standifer announced that she's pregnant again. The Teen Mom OG regular is expecting a daughter with husband Ryan Edwards, their second child together. They are also parents to Jagger, 9 months, and each has a son from a previous relationship.

  • Mackenzie shared the news earlier in July, with an ultrasound photo of her unborn daughter.

    She captioned it only with, "Baby Girl Edwards is coming in January," adding a pink bow emoji, and disabling the comments. She had to know that people were going to be talking, especially since to be due in January, they must have conceived immediately after Ryan was released from a three-month stint in jail for drug-related charges.

    In addition to baby Jagger, Mackenzie is also mom to Hudson, 4, from a previous relationship, and Ryan is dad to Bentley, 10, with ex Maci Bookout.

  • According to a source claiming to be close with the couple, Mackenzie was apparently just as surprised to learn she was expecting again.

    The insider told Radar Online that the pregnancy "wasn't planned," and that she was a couple of months in before she even found out she was expecting. They explained, "She didn't find out until a month ago. This happened right after he got out [of jail]!"

    The source added that Mackenzie blamed her first trimester pregnancy symptoms on stress. "She thought she was late because of dealing with everything and then Ryan coming home and stressing out," the insider dished. "Her periods haven't been consistent since having Jagger either."

    The insider added, "She started putting on a little weight and took a test. The results shocked both of them."
  • And her family doesn't seem to be totally thrilled by the couple adding another baby to the mix, either. 

    According to the source, her family thinks the situation is "crazy." 

    "They need to focus on him getting better and on his relationship with the kids he already has," the insider said. "Not to mention their relationship. It's a mess and she's digging herself deeper."

    That's kind of harsh, considering what's done is done. How about support her and help her keep firm boundaries with her recovering heroin addict husband? 

  • It looks like they at least have Ryan's parents' support.

    Jen and Larry Edwards have been a huge source of support for their son and daughter-in-law, and it's been reported that they have lived with them on and off. 

    Jen posted this photo to her Instagram page this week, and added the caption, "To all the bullies and haters!!" with a kissy-face emoji. She and Larry are pictured holding a sign that reads, "Amazingly enough I don't give a s---." It should be noted that the photo was taken in front of the Viacom building in NYC, where the Teen Mom OG reunion was filmed over the weekend. Yeah.

  • We really do wish the best for Mackenzie and Ryan.

    They have a lot to overcome in terms of his recovery, but maybe this will be the final kick in the pants he needs to stay on the straight and narrow. Here's to hoping.
