Maci shared several snaps and videos of her three children playing baseball and softball.
She captioned the post: “3 ball teams, 3 ballparks, and 3 kids that love to play ball… People often ask us – How do y’all do it? or What’s your secret?
“Truth is this – As parents, we are actively present, we always encourage their passions, and always try our very best to be positive! 4Ps #bepresent #bepassionate #bepositive #beparents.”
Last month, Maci’s ex and Bentley’s dad, Ryan, his wife Mackenzie, and his parents, Jen and Larry, were fired from Teen Mom.
The firings followed Larry and Maci’s husband, Taylor, getting into an explosive fight during the reunion show, over Ryan’s alleged absentee parenting.
Maci even revealed on Kailyn Lowry’s podcast, Baby Mamas No Drama Bentley sometimes calls Taylor dad.
“Sometimes [Bentley will] call [Taylor] T-Money, sometimes he’ll call him Taylor,” the 29-year-old said.
“Sometimes – it’s not extremely often – but if he’s talking to the younger kids he’ll just call him Dad.
“If it’s just us adults and Bentley, it’s usually T-Money.”
Following the firing, Ryan exclusively told The Sun why Maci got his family fired sharing: “Maci is in fear that my mom and dad will start telling the truth. She will always fight to have us off the show.”
Ryan said that while he can’t speak for his parents, he doesn’t believe he and Mackenzie will return to Teen Mom OG.
He continued: “MTV does not really stand for anything we believe in or support.”
Ryan previously told The Sun that the firing hasn’t bothered him, as he said: “I really haven’t given MTV much thought now that I have my own fabrication shop.”
