It’s a boy for (former) Teen Mom OG stars Ryan and Mackenzie Edwards.
Radar Online reported (and The Ashley‘s sources confirmed) that Mackenzie gave birth to Ryan’s son early Tuesday morning. The baby boy was given the name Jagger, and weighed in at 7 lbs., 1 oz. (according to Radar).
While Ryan’s parents, Jen and Larry Edwards, were at the hospital, Ryan was not, as he is currently in a long-term treatment facility attempting to get help for his substance abuse issues.
As The Ashley previously told you, Ryan left for this most-recent stint in rehab about a month ago, and is reportedly scheduled to do about six months of inpatient rehab. (He is supposed to complete rehab around February 2019.)
From what The Ashley hears, MTV cameras were not at the hospital when Mackenzie gave birth. (This is no surprise, though, given that Mackenzie and Ryan were given the boot from the show before the current season began.)
It’s unlikely that Baby Jagger will appear on ‘Teen Mom OG.’ In July, Mackenzie claimed that, while MTV didn’t want her and Ryan on ‘Teen Mom OG’ anymore, the network wanted their baby to be able to appear on the show.
“They did want to enter a contract with our unborn baby and have the baby film with Ryan’s parents so it would look like someone else is raising it…So they’re writing us out of the show right now and making it seem like we dipped out on our baby, on Bentley and on everyone. And that’s just not the case,” Mackenzie told E! News at the time. “If they don’t want to film now, then we don’t want to film later.”
Radar reports that Mackenzie has been living with her parents since Ryan left, and that Jagger will also be living at the Standifers’ house for the time being.
This is the second child for both Ryan and Mackenzie. Ryan is also the father of Bentley, the nine-year-old son he shares with Maci Bookout, while Mackenzie has son Hudson from her previous marriage.
Mackenzie has yet to comment publicly about the birth of her son. However, Ryan’s mom Jen tweeted “Blessed” on Monday night, which was the same night Mackenzie was being induced.
Baby Jagger is just one of several ‘Teen Mom’ babies to enter the world in 2018. ‘Teen Mom OG’ star Amber Portwood gave birth to son James in May, while Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska gave birth to daughter Layne in August. Javi Marroquin is expecting a child with his girlfriend Lauren Comeau in December, while Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are due to welcome their third child early next year.
