“Teen Mom OG” star Maci Bookout already has a full house thanks to her husband and three loving children. But it seems the reality stars aren’t quite done growing their family yet.
On a preview for the hit MTV reality show, husband Taylor McKinney asked the 26-year-old if she was ready to carry another child, Us Weekly reports.

And the mother of three doesn’t seem like she’s ready for yet another pregnancy. In the preview, Bookout asks her husband:
“We’re not having another baby. You really want another child, like for real?”
He replies that he “loves kids” and “wouldn’t be mad” at the prospect of bringing another bundle of joy into the household.
According to People, the mom said that she’s been looking into adoption, rather than another pregnancy. She wants a child in the “four to six” range that would fall in the middle of her current kids’ ages.
But she agreed that if her husband wanted another biological child, they should do it sooner rather than later— and her husband assured her that they wouldn’t have problems conceiving.
That’s when the reality star said her husband was “forgetting something.”
McKinney quickly went silent and then headed to the bathroom, prompting Bookout to tell producers some devastating news. She said:
“I had a miscarriage. Her name is Dandy, Dandelion.”
But her husband wasn’t willing to open up about the loss, because he said they hadn’t spoken to their parents about it yet. Bookout replied:
“I think it’s important for people that are watching that we talk about it.”
Over the summer, Bookout sparked pregnancy rumors when she appeared to have a baby belly in some of her Instagram photos, Radar Online reported.
It’s unclear when the reality star’s miscarriage occurred, but she did confirm that it happened sometime “this year” (2017).
There is no word yet on whether the couple has actually decided to start trying for another child. Watch the clip below:
