TEEN Mom star Ryan Edwards posed for a beach photo with his “beautiful” family, but his son Bentley with ex Maci Bookout was noticeably missing.
He and his wife Mackenzie – who share two kids, while she also has a son from a previously relationship – have been feuding with Maci for years now.
Mackenzie shared the sweet family photo to her Instagram Story Friday night, which saw almost everyone all together.
Ryan and Mack sat on the sand together, looking off at the view, smiling, with their shared son and daughter – Jagger and Stella, respectively – and her son Hudson with ex Zach Stephens.
Their dog was even part of the group shot, which she captioned “Beautiful crazy,” but Ryan’s son Bentley was nowhere to be found.
Ryan and Bentley have long had a splintered father-son relationship, with a lot of it playing out during the last season of Teen Mom.
The 12-year-old even decided that he wanted to go to a therapist to start working on rebuilding his relationship with his dad.
This only upset Ryan, as he assumed his ex Maci was putting all of these ideas into his son’s head and that she was also telling him a bunch of lies about him.
The exes continued to feud, which led to an all-out heated argument between Ryan’s parents and Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney during a reunion episode.
Sitting on couches across from one another, the men yelled back and forth, with Taylor sitting forward and angrily pointing his finger at Larry and Jen, arguing: “Ryan has never been there for him, but y’all put it on Bentley!”

The accusatory words upset Ryan’s dad, causing him to push off the couch and lunge toward Taylor, yelling: “You know what!”
Ryan followed suit and jumped off the couch toward Larry, as well, but both wives held them back.
Jen and Maci grabbed their husband’s arms and tried to pull them back, to make them sit down again, with the Teen Mom trying to calm her husband, telling him: “Taylor, we’re not doing this.”
After the explosive fight, Bentley's grandpa Larry exclusively told The Sun: “We, the family have been let go from the show by the network. It's unbelievable.”
Though Larry was unable to confirm exactly why the family was fired, he admitted Maci was “so mad” at him at the reunion for claiming they hadn’t seen Bentley in a month.
