Rough days are ahead for former Teen Mom OG star Mackenzie Standifer. With her husband and baby daddy Ryan Edwards in rehab sorting out his heroin addiction, Standifer has faced the last few weeks of her pregnancy alone and without support. The baby is due in a few weeks and Edwards is not expected to be out of rehab in time for the birth.
Standifer threw a baby shower last weekend for close friends and family. Standifer is doing her best trying to focus on the baby, but a few of her guests tried to get some new information about Edwards. But she refused to dish any details on how Edwards is doing and simply told guests he is at home.

“People asked where Ryan was, and she said home,” an insider explained. “No one knows what’s going on.”
The insider added that Standifer does not talk to her friends anymore and has been acting strange over the past few months. According to Radar Online, doctors have scheduled to induce Standifer on Oct. 8.
Standifer is planning on naming the child Jagger Ryan. This will be her second boy. Edwards is also father to another child, Bentley, whom he shares with Maci Bookout.
While Standifer says Edwards is at home, insiders claim he checked into an Alabama rehab center last month. The troubled Teen Mom star has battled substance abuse issues for several years and is not expected to finish his program until February at the earliest. If that is true, Edwards will miss out on the first few months of Jagger’s life, let alone the birth.
Police arrested Ryan Edwards in March of this year after he failed a drug test. He faced more charges in July after authorities caught him with heroin. He has not commented on Mackenzie Standifer’s upcoming birth or if he will be in the delivery room.
New episodes of Teen Mom OG air Monday nights on MTV.
