If you watch Teen Mom: OG online, you know that Maci Bookout has a lot on her plate these days.
With three kids, a new husband, and constant drama created by her ex Ryan Edwards, Maci probably hasn’t seen anything resembling downtime since her pre-16 and Pregnant days.
And many fans believe her home life is soon to become even more hectic.
That’s a selfie that Maci posted to Instagram last week.
According to the caption, the pic was snapped during a family vacation.
“Beachin’ it with my boys! #familyvacation #thingsthatmatter #bennybaby #mrmaverick,” Maci wrote.
The image seems straightforward enough, but Teen Mom obsessives who take a magnifying glass to Bookout’s every social media post believe something is afoot.
Many of the folks who commented on the post believe that Maci is subtly showing off a burgeoning baby bump.
“That’s a baby bump right?!?!” commented one follower.
“Is there another baby on the way?” queried another.
And then there was the crude SOB who asked:
“Baby bump? Beer gut? Food Baby? Which is it?”
Yes, the Internet brings out the worst in people, but it also … leaves us struggling for a way to finish this sentence in an optimistic fashion.
Anyway, we don’t know what Maci’s followers are seeing, but there’s definitely no conclusive evidence of a baby bump here.
Maybe an odd angle, or a shirt ruffled by a passing breeze, but we don’t think it’s time to start picking out names just yet.
But who knows?
Maybe Maci really is pregnant.
Even if that’s the case, however, it’s hard to believe that scores of people who call themselves fans would see fit to so rudely offer their two cents about her physique.
Maci seems like the type to take that sort of thing in stride, but it can’t feel good to open up your notifications and find a slew of comments about your stomach.
She’s never been one of the more secretive Teen Moms, so if she is expecting, we’re probably in for an announcement in the very near future.
And if she’s not, here’s hoping she tears she has some harsh words for some of the ruder commenters.
She’s no Jenelle Evans, but Maci can unleash quite a temper when she sees fit.
It can be a joy to behold.
