RYAN Edwards' wife shared a photo with their two-year-old son Jagger after his dad Larry claimed that they weren't allowed to see Bentley.
Mackenzie Edwards took to Instagram to share the adorable snap on Thursday, which she captioned: "There’s no place like home."
In the adorable photo, little Jagger can be seen cuddling up to his mom.
Two weeks ago, Mackenzie posted a snap of Jagger's birthday celebrations with his siblings, Bentley, 12, 10-month-old Stella, and her son Hudson from a previous relationship.
"Yesterday we celebrated Jaggy’s birthday!" she wrote. "Safe to say we had a great time! How could you not have a blast around this bunch? My🖤is full."
But it's since emerged that Bentley's mom Maci Bookout willno longer let Ryan or his family see him, according to his grandad.
Larry Edwards exclusively told The Sun on Tuesday that he had not seen his Bentley in a fortnight as a result of Maci and Ryan's feud.
His 32-year-old son – who is two years sober and has a strained relationship with Maci following his years of rehab and jail stints for drug abuse – is "not allowed" to see Bentley.
Though Ryan has been out of legal trouble since he was released from jail in April 2019, Larry told The Sun that the family “hasn’t gotten to see Bentley very much" either.
He said: “Their relationship hasn’t been going well. It’s not any better. Something came up that she wanted and needed.
"Ryan wasn’t going to comply with everything she wants and needs and we’ve been shut down.
“Bentley right now, we can’t even see him, they’re not even allowed to see him. It is what it is.”
Larry and his wife Jen, who often appears on Teen Mom OG, have been active in Bentley’s life since he was a baby and Maci often liaises with them instead of Ryan.
Larry claimed the grandparents haven’t seen Bentley – who turned 12 on Tuesday – in two weeks and "haven’t heard anything back" from Maci.
He also said Ryan is not going to fight for custody of Bentley when the stress of a court war could trigger a relapse, however.
“Ryan is not participating because he’s not going to let her pull his triggers," he added. "He’s pretty much, whatever she wants to do is fine.
“We’re not going to fight it. We’re not going to change it. It’s just the way it is. I’m sorry for it.
“I just wish we could work together a lot better and be more of a part of everybody’s life and it works out. I hope so more for Ryan.”
The drama is likely to unfold for the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG.
Larry said Ryan and the family is currently filming with Covid-19 precautions, which includes frequent testing for the virus.
The doting grandad said he's grateful to have Ryan’s children with Mackenzie, who recently slammed a troll claiming she was a "narcissistic enabler."
This week, she shared a rare picture of Ryan on her IG stories at a wedding as fans hoped he was "clean and healthy."
Meanwhile, Maci accused Ryan and Mackenzie of "making fun" ofBentley and questioning his eating habits earlier this month.
Mackenzie had slammed Maci for helping her son stay in a certain weight class for wrestling, telling Without A Crystal Ball: “I don’t think introducing those habits at such a young age ends well, ever.”
But the Teen Mom alum said that Mackenzie's comments about his wrestling and diet were "ignorant" when she responded via Celeb Magazine.
“And for the record, when Mackenzie and Ryan stop talking badly about my son, making fun of him, and talking down to him," she raged.
"Then maybe their opinion of what goes on in my home will hold some weight. Actually, no it won’t."
Mackenzie had also criticized Bentley putting pressure on himself related to wrestling, noting that, “we were like, ’that’s a little extreme. ’And we just didn’t know it was like that- at home.”
