Ryan Edwards, a former Teen Mom star, sobbed openly during the reunion in a recent video.
For the episode, which was shot before his most recent arrest, the former reality star made a comeback to the stage.
Things got emotional for Ryan and his baby mother, Maci Bookout, when a preview clip of the Teen Mom Family Reunion special, “The Aftermath,” which airs on MTV next week, went around on Tuesday.
Nessa Diab, the host of the program, made the reunion announcement in the scene: “It finally happens. Ryan and Maci sharing a couch.
Ryan, why didn’t you want to attend Family Reunion? Nessa asked her ex as Maci, 31, struggled to contain her tears.
Ryan, 35, also had trouble maintaining his composure, which caused the episode’s shocking cliffhanger.
Over the years, viewers have followed Ryan and Maci’s complex co-parenting arrangement, which culminated in a previous reunion special.
The entire Edwards family was fired from the long-running series as a result of a heated argument between Ryan’s father, Larry, and Maci’s husband, Taylor McKinney, in March 2021.
On the most recent episode of Family Reunion, Maci expressed her hurt and frustration over her strained relationship with Ryan and his parents.
On the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter reunion last year, their 14-year-old son Bentley also acknowledged that he and his father didn’t get along.
