Maci Opens up About Raising Bentley: ‘It is Difficult’
“Teen Mom” fans have been with Bentley since the beginning. Maci made her reality TV debut on “16 and Pregnant” in 2009 when she was pregnant with Bentley. Since then, fans have watched Bentley grow up on “Teen Mom: OG.”
In an interview with People in October 2022, Maci spoke about the pros and cons of raising her teenage son Bentley.
“Teenage years are an absolute blast and they are an absolute struggle,” she told the outlet. “It is difficult because it’s gotten to the stage where he wants to make his own decisions and deal with the consequences of those.”
Maci celebrated Bentley entering his teenage years with an Instagram post on his thirteenth birthday on October 27, 2021.
“This smart, gentle, kind soul is 13 years old today,” she wrote alongside a photo of her and Bentley on the beach. “I’m so blessed to be your mom. Happy Birthday Benny, I love you! 🎉🥰💙.”
She included the hashtag “Benny Baby.”
