Teen Mom OG fans learned last week that Ryan Edwards violated his probation, which stemmed from his 2017 arrest for heroin possession. And fans of the show know Ryan already has two kids.
He shares 10 year-old Bentley with Maci Bookout, and 4 month-old Jagger with Mackenzie Edwards. Never lacking for drama or surprises, chatter says that Mackenzie and Ryan are considering having another baby.
Teen Mom OG: Third Time’s The Charm?
Ryan Edwards is starting to rack up mugshots faster than fellow Teen Mom celeb Jenelle Evans, with his most recent arrest for skipping out on a $36 bar tab. According to police documents, Ryan Edwards drank Jack Daniels from noon until 4 pm at Bud’s Sports Bar.
After his own version of happy hour, Ryan Edwards left the bar without paying his tab. Though sources say the charges were dropped, he remains in jail. Ryan is to remain behind bars until April 15. Perhaps, he needs a good luck charm! Baby Edwards, do your thing!

Ryan Edwards’ Definition of Fatherhood
What makes the possibility of Baby Edwards #3 so shocking is that he missed Jagger’s birth. However, it was for a good reason as he was in rehab. He sought treatment for his opioid addiction. Teen Mom OG viewers will remember that he by joked “call him” when the baby is three.
Given his current circumstances, Ryan Edwards could be turning the joke into reality. As a matter of fact, this is familiar territory for the former TMOG show star. He is a fan of “hands off” parenting. Ryan has been absent for many of Bentley’s milestones.
In fact, his parents Jen and Larry Edwards play a larger role in his life. Maci’s husband Taylor, serves as Bentley’s primary father figure. Many fans would agree that another child for Ryan Edwards and wife Mackenzie Edwards isn’t a good idea.
Teen Mom: Ulterior Motives Behind The Decision?
Given Ryan Edward’s history as a father, it makes little sense why Mackenzie Edwards would want another child with him. Some wonder if Mackenzie has ulterior motives. Perhaps, she wants back on the show?
MTV loves drama, and a third child born to these two is sure to bring it. Though, they claim to have quit the Teen Mom series, behind the scenes sources say they were fired. Maci didn’t want Ryan’s struggles filmed anymore.
Ryan and Mackenzie’s marriage does not seem rock solid, compared to Teen Mom alums Chelsea and Cole Deboer. These marital struggles go beyond his addiction, and rehab stints. The internet is constantly abuzz with chatter about infidelities. Ryan Edwards, in particular, likes to have some “outside fun”.
News stories circulated a few months ago claiming that he messaged a girl on Tinder. He asked if she was down for a hookup. Actually, he used more colorful terms. The former Teen Mom OG star reportedly also sent the girl explicit pictures.
With all of the crazy happenings, there doesn’t seem to be a good reason to explain their desire for another baby.
