Maci Bookout, the mom of Bentley Cadence Edwards, is described as a classic teenage overachiever who is popular, athletic, and successful in school. She dreamed about going college with her friends after she graduated high school. That ended when she had her son Bentley while still in high school. She took online courses at the state college, and tried to keep her relationship with her fiance Ryan. She got a tattoo that says "bulletproof" on her right shoulder, as a symbol that she will remain the same person no matter what happens. Although a patient mother and fiance, Maci gets fed up with Ryan when he does not help her juggle parenthood, school, and work.
