Former Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards and his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, just welcomed their first child together — a son they named Jagger — but he wasn’t there for the birth because he is currently in rehab. Now, according to a new report, Standifer seems to be done with Edwards, and she is ready to leave.
Edwards has had a drug problem for a very long time, and he was deep into his addiction when he started dating Standifer in 2016. Meanwhile, at the age of 21, Standifer has already been married twice and has two children.
She started dating Edwards immediately after divorcing her first husband, and then she and Edwards got engaged just a few months later. Standifer has claimed that she didn’t know about Edwards’ drug problem before they got married.

Just two months before they tied the knot in their famous parking lot ceremony, police arrested Edwards after they pulled him over and found syringes in his car. One of those syringes had heroin in it. A judge sentenced Edwards to probation, but he obviously didn’t learn his lesson.
During a Teen Mom OG scene, Edwards was driving Standifer to their wedding, but he was incredibly high — nodding off at the wheel and slurring his words. They still went through with the wedding, and just a few weeks later Edwards was in rehab for the first time.
However, he ended up leaving treatment early because he claimed he was well and had beaten his addiction. Even though there were plenty of signs that Edwards wasn’t healthy, Standifer married him again in November 2017.
Then, at the beginning of this year, Standifer announced she was pregnant, and Edwards looked to be anything but excited about the news. At the same time, Edwards failed a drug test he had to take as a condition of probation, and police ended up arresting him again a few weeks later because of a petition to revoke his probation.
Police arrested him a third time in July for missing a court date, but Standifer continued to make excuses for her husband. Finally, last month Edwards reportedly checked into rehab for a second time, and this time he is staying for six months.

Without Edwards by her side, Standifer gave birth on October 9th, and she hasn’t shared any baby pics on social media. According to The Hollywood Gossip, it is quite possible fans will never see baby Jagger.
But, Standifer did recently post a pic of her holding hands with Ryan Edwards, and all she put in the caption was a black heart emoji. The bittersweet pic and cold caption gave fans a “love is dead” vibe and sparked speculation that Standifer was done with the relationship.
And, when a fan asked when Mackenzie Standifer would be posting pics of the new baby, she replied, “probably never lol.”
