‘teen mom og’ tell-all: taylor mckinney dishes about proposing to maci bookout

Maci Bookout has excitedly disclosed details surrounding her beach-side proposal and how it feels to be engaged to her longtime love Taylor McKinney.

“My nerves went crazy right as I was about to do it,” the “Teen Mom OG” cast member revealed during a Facebook Q&A about the special moment, seen above. “But I was pretty calm all day long.”

As for queries about whether or not he was pressured to pop the big question (specifically, her statement that they should terminate their romance if he didn’t see marriage in their future during a recent episode of the long-running series), Taylor gave the televised moment a bit of context.

“You get to see a small portion of it,” he explained. “Don’t get it twisted. And that comment was about that conversation at the moment, not ending our relationship.”

While the two “have not set a date,” the young parent already has some ideas about where he would like to go on their honeymoon. Warm weather for the future McKinneys, please!

Well y'all, my best friend asked me to marry him! I'm one lucky lady, I love you T! @tmon3yyy 💏💍💘

“I’m saying for Bora Bora or Maldives,” he revealed. “As long as I can just be in one of those tiki huts out on the ocean. Hell, I don’t care if it’s in Mexico.”
