Last month, former Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards was arrested on charges theft and heroin possession.
The good news is, the theft charge has since been dropped.
The bad news is … well, it’s plentiful:
The possession charge isn’t going anywhere, and since Ryan was on probation at the time of his arrest, he’ll remain behind bars at least until his court date on April 15.
Fortunately, Ryan’s wife, Mackenzie Standifer, is not without a support system on the outside.
And these days, she’s receiving help from some very unexpected sources.
Take a look:
1. Mack and Maci
Maci Bookout recently surprised fans by posting a family photo in which she posed with Ryan Edwards’ wife, Mackenzie Standifer.
2. The Truce
The mothers of Ryan’s two children haven’t always gotten along, but it seems they’ve decided to set their differences aside in favor of focusing on something more important.
3. Traumatic Times
Ryan’s absence has been hardest on his two sons — 9-year-old Bentley, from his relationship with Maci, and Jagger, who was welcomed by Mackenzie while Ryan was in rehab last year.
4. Enough Pain to Go Around
That’s not to say of course, that his addiction and legal entanglements haven’t been difficult on Maci and Mackenzie, as well.
5. A Hard Road to Travel
Obviously, Maci moved on from Ryan quite some time ago, but watching her eldest child cope with the pain of having an imprisoned heroin addict for a father cannot be easy.
6. Joining Forces
And so, it seems Maci and Mackenzie have decided to focus on their children’s happiness and lend their support to one another, as well.
