Teen Mom OG couple Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney are engaged!

It was only a week ago on the January 11 episode of Teen Mom OG that Bookout was asking McKinney “When are you gonna make me an honest woman?” And the answer to that question has finally arrived!

Bookout shared a photo of she and McKinney – her longtime boyfriend and the father of their eight-month-old daughter Jayde – smooching on the beach on Tuesday, January 19, writing, “Well y’all, my best friend asked me to marry him! I’m one lucky lady, I love you T!”

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

Although McKinney was caught ring shopping for the former 16 and Pregnant star on the finale of the last season of Teen Mom OG, it seems like Bentley and Jayde’s mom waited for good reason!

In the photo the bride-to-be shows off not just one engagement ring, but what appears to be a whole set of matching jewelry taking up much of her ring finger real estate! It seems that McKinney presented Bookout with two white gold bands containing small diamonds surrounding a third band with a larger, solitary diamond in the middle. Wow!

Looks like we’ll have to wait for the reality show to catch up to see the ring (or rings) and watch McKinney propose, but until then we wish this famous mama (and papa) congratulations on getting engaged!

Catch Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney on all new episodes of Teen Mom OG airing Mondays at 10pm EST on MTV.
