Troubled Teen Mom OG ne'er-do-well Ryan Edwards suddenly has a brand new reason to stay clean, sober and out of jail.
Or, to be more specific, Ryan Edwards will have a brand new reason to stay clean, sober and out of jail ... in about six months.
That is when he and wife Mackenzie Standifer (Edwards) will welcome their second child into the world.
Oh, yes, folks, Ryan is about to be a father once again!
This exciting, unexpected and sort of frightening news was broken late on Friday by Mackenzie herself, as she shared a very clear sonogram photo on her Instagram page and wrote as a caption:
Baby Girl Edwards is coming in January!
So there you have it: an approximate due date AND a gender reveal, all wrapped up in one scary sentence.
Scary, that is, only due to Ryan's history as a father and simply as a human being in general.
He and Mackenzie are parents to his son Bentley (with his ex Maci Bookout) and their son Jagger.
Mackenzie, meanwhile, is the mother of Hudson, her son from her first marriage.
Jagger (above) was born just this past October - but Edwards was not around for the birth because he was in rehab for the third time due to drug and alcohol abuse.
Just a few months after being released, Edwards went to prison for 90 more days after he was arrested on a charge of theft and also for an outstanding warrant in connection to a past drug possession charge.
(In this latest instance, Edwards was accused of ordering six whiskey drinks at a bar in January, only to exit the establishment without paying his tab.)
The disgraced Teen Mom star has been in and out of both rehab and prison for years.
He rose to fame back in the day as the father of a now-10-year old Bentley, who he shares with veteran MTV star Maci Bookout (above).
As recently as last year, Mackenzie and Ryan said they were leaving Teen Mom because, in their view, producers did not want someone in the cast who had been so closely and frequently involved with drugs.
But the couple just recently returned for the start of a new season.
They seem to be strangely stable, as well, at least in terms of having no plans to ever get divorced.
Yes, Ryan has been abusing drugs for nearly the entirety of their relationship.
And, yes, he allegedly went on Tinder, hit on women and asked to be hooked up with cocaine as soon as he left rehab late last year.
But Mackenzie has made it clear, long before this pregnancy reveal went viral, that she is committed to her marriage.
Asked by a follower in March if she had plans to leave her husband, Mackenzie responded as sharply as possible.
"Hell no," she wrote online.
To Mackenzie's credit, she has refrained from trashing Ryan in public as well.
Despite the reality star giving his wife plenty of understandable reasons to do so, especially over the past several months, they have dealt with it largely in house.
“You deal with your crap at home,” she told fans this spring, adding:
“That’s how I was raised, and that’s how I’m going to be. I’m not going to publicly humiliate him. That does not work and I believe that’s so disrespectful to do that."
That's actually admirable, we guess. In any case, Mackenzie and Ryan are certainly in it for the long haul now.
They're about to welcome their second kid as husband and wife and fourth overall between them.
And just think: all Edwards has to do is be present for the little girl's birth and it'll be an improvement on last time, too.
Way to set a very low bar for yourself, dude.
Seriously, though, we hope you have learned from your past mistakes and we do wish you and Mackenzie the best here.
Don't eff it up, Ry Guy.

Sisterhood of the traveling…cheetah print panties?
Yeah, Natalie Halcro probably didn’t see that one coming either. But the facts are tough to ignore in this silly clip from…
In a word? Whoa.
In another word? Yikes.
According to Radar Online and other outlets, Amber Portwood was arrested on felony domestic battery charges in her native state of Indiana on Friday, July 5 around 6 a.m.
As of this writing, she was taken into custody and remains in a processing center.
“She’s at intake right now," a clerk at the Initial Hearting Court in Indianapolis told Radar of Portwood earlier today.
The alleged victim was not named in the official report and we cannot provide any more details on what actually transpired right now. But a hearing is set for next week.
UPDATE: According to TMZ, and a recorded dispatch call, the victim was ANDREW GLENNON.
He alleges that Amber assaulted him around 3 a.m. on Friday, while he was holding their infant son, and that Andrew feared both of for their lives.
The 29-year-old Teen Mom OG star is the mother of a 10-year old daughter named Leah and a one-year old son named James.
She shares the latter with boyfriend Andrew Glennon, who has not yet commented on Amber's arrest.
Amber Portwood has been arrested for a felony. This is her latest mug shot.
For her part, though, Portwood has candidly talked about a past that includes both bipolar and borderline personality disorders, along with other times she ran afoul of the law.
In December of 2010, Amber was arrested and charged with two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery.
This arrest came on the heels an incident with her ex-fiancé Gary Shirley, with whom she shares custody of Leah.
Then, in late 2011, Portwood was arrested once more -- in this case for violating the terms of her probation by being accused of battery and public intoxication in connection with a fight weeks prior... also for failing to obtain her GED and complete anger management classes.
Following a probation search, authorities discovered several different prescription pills in her possession, for which she could not produce prescriptions.
As a result, she spent Christmas in jail that year.
From there,, back in 2012, Portwood was sentenced to five years in jail after she failed broke the terms of her probation by falling off the drug wagon.
She ended up serving 17 months total at the time before her release.
Portwood had seemingly been clean, sober and a law-abiding citizen over the past few years, however.
That said, she has showed signs here and there of continued instability.
"Last year, everything was falling into place for me - I had an amazing boyfriend [Andrew Glennon], a beautiful son James, and [ex Gary Shirley] and I were finally co-parenting [daughter Leah] better," she said in a recent Teen Mom OG group interview.
But she then delved into the issues that caused her to nearly leave the MTV program.
"I struggled with postpartum depression, and people said really negative things about me on the internet, which didn't help," she added in this discussion, explaining:
"I was in a bad place, so I needed to take time for myself."
As cited above, Portwood has always been open about struggles of this kind.
She's even been open about having had suicidal thoughts in the past.
So... why did Amber decide to stick around Teen Mom? Why didn't she walk away when she felt the show was depicting her in a negative light and she was again way down in the tragic doldrums?
"The support of my fans made me change my mind, so I agreed to come back and film," she said in June, adding:
"I really isolated myself the last few months, so I'm finally ready to reconnect with my family."
Again, she said these just a few weeks ago.
She really did sound like she was in a better place, making this arrest all the more unfortunate and confusing.
Stay tuned to The Hollywood Gossip for further updates and for breaking news on Amber's dometic violence charges once it is made public.
For now, we've added her latest mug shot to the gallery below.
