‘Teen Mom OG’ Stars Ryan & Mackenzie Edwards Welcome Daughter

“Ryan, you ARE the father!”

The Teen Mom OG cast list just got a little bit bigger.

The Sun broke the news on Sunday that Ryan Edwards and his wife Mackenzie welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday, January 1.  Ryan’s father, Larry Edwards, confirmed that the baby was born on New Year’s Day with no complications.

“We’re so excited. She looks like Mackenzie!” Larry told the site. “It was unexpected. One push and she was here!”

Ryan and Mackenzie named their daughter Stella Rhea. (Larry told the site that Rhea is a family name on Ryan’s mother Jen‘s side.) 

Baby Stella weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz.

This is the third child for both Mackenzie and Ryan. The couple shares son Jagger, and Ryan has son Bentley with Maci Bookout. Mackenzie has son Hudson from her previous marriage. 

Larry confirmed that Ryan did attend Stella’s birth, unlike Jagger’s birth which he missed because he was in rehab.

“It was great for him to be there,” Larry told The Sun.

While Ryan was there, apparently MTV cameras were not. Larry reported that, because Mackenzie went into labor before her due date, an MTV crew was unable to get there in time to capture the Kodak moment. 

Baby Stella is not the only ‘Teen Mom OG’ kid to be born on January 1. Nova Baltierra, the daughter of Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra is also a New Year’s Day baby. She just celebrated her fifth birthday. 

According to Larry, Mackenzie and Ryan took family photos on Sunday which they plan to post on social media soon. For the most part, Mackenzie has kept her pregnancy off of social media, except to announce back in July that they were expecting a baby girl

UPDATE! Mackenzie has posted some of the first family photos featuring Stella. Scroll through them below.

  1. I really hope Rhea is not pronounced as the typical “Ree-ah” Cuz my first thought is Gonorrhea. Stellarrhea. ?

  2. I’m assuming Rhea is pronounced like “Ray”? Otherwise Stella Rhea sounds like a foreign disease. So now we have 2 Nova’s and 2 Stella’s. I bet Briana is PISSED.
    Good luck to Mack raising kids on her own…..

  3. Hopefully Macenzie was spayed at the same time. No more innocent children need to be brought into such dysfunctional situations.

  4. Ryan really seems to be doing better…he’s stayed out of the headlines and no arrests. Maybe he’s really turning his life around

  5. Well clearly my reply went under the wrong comment.
    I bet both positive post end up with more down votes than ups….?

  6. “One push and she was out” ok Larry that’s gross and TMI. the only ones who should even know that info are those in the delivery room, which, also ew if he was. Ryan’s parents are only all over Mackenzie because she puts up with his crap and has him in the kids lives.

    Wow, 1 minute he’s talking about his heroin addiction & the next he’s blaming Maci because he doesn’t have a close relationship with Bentley… be thankful to Maci for doing what he was incapable of & that was keeping Bentley safe (while maintaining a relationship with his parents) & putting him 1st…if she wanted to take Bentley from Ryan she would have never continued a relationship with his parents… Ryan needs to take FULL RESPONSIBILITY, thank Maci & move forward with Mackenzie & All his beatiful kids… best wishes to Ryan on his sobriety ?

    That guy c ant support 1 child more less 3, they live with her parents! Don’t blame his poor relationship on his sons mom, she was there, he chose drugs & alcohol over his children!!

  9. Congratulations to Jen and Larry on the new baby girl that they will be left raising most of the time. Ryan only ever seemed interested in Bentley when Maci and Taylor were doing something with him and he wanted to ruin their plans and lets face it Taylor is more Bentley’s father than Ryan will ever be. Ryan missed Jagger’s birth because he was in rehab and then a chunk of his life because of jail. Ryan’s track record is not great and even ig he is sober now, I don’t see him being a good dad to her.

    1. Jen has commented many times on how she wanted a grand daughter so she finally got her wish. These parents have enabled Ryan to continue his drug addiction for the last idk 8 years?? And Mackenzie?? Why would you bring 3 children into the world with a man who obviously has no capacity to b a father??

  10. Congrats on a healthy baby, but they don’t need to have anymore kids. Rhine hardly takes care of the ones he already has.

  11. For how often Larry speaks to the press about Mackenzie and how he talks about her on the show- you’d think they were together.

      I have a cousin named Rhea and it is indeed pronounced like the diarrhea…. unfortunate.

    Maybe…just maybe he will stay clean this time.

    Sooo happy for them. I Love all the Support Ryan gets from his Wife and Parent’s.Addition is not easy for the family either. But know Matter what storm’s life may bring our way we always remember to let God be our strength.May God continue to Bless you all.Ryan i’m praying for and always rooting for you. Someone i love dearly is dealing with addiction and it’s not easy.Again God bless!!❤

    1. Support? Like letting him drive under influence and marrying him in that condition?
      They could have caused an accident! A good, loving woman would have canceled that wedding.
      Not Mackenzie (“Where’s that wedding man?”). What woman would want a man to say ‘yes’ to her when he’s not sober?
      And being nasty about his child’s mother on tv isn’t very classy either.

  14. Y’all, I do not miss this MTV clinger. Not trying to be rude or anything but I really could do without her enabling-lying tv footage on air.

  15. It’s wonderful that Ryan was there for the birth of his daughter! He has been doing so much better lately. Hopefully, that’s a sign of good things ahead for their family. Now that they have two beautiful children of their own and four between them, it’s important Ryan remain strong for his family and stay sober, clean, in treatment and keep his and his family’s health and happiness a priority.??

      1. Diane, ik heb je hier gemist.

        Diane, I’ve missed you on here.
        (P.s. Do you have ANY news on the animals that were left with David? The rabbits??)

    1. Not 6 kids- He has one, she has one, they have 2 which equals 4 kids,The only way it would be 6 is if you included Jayde and Maverick in the equation but if he can’t take care of his own kids then there is no way he is taking care of Maci and Taylor’s other kids

    2. Thank you for this positivity!!!
      I hope 2020 is a great year for their family. I hope they continue to grow and heal from the past. Fingers crossed. Some of us are always rooting for a happing ending no matter the people nor the story!! ??
