Early Friday, the Teen Mom OG star, 30, shared a rare selfie with son Bentley, 13, who she shares with ex Ryan Edwards. The teenager is almost as tall as his mother in the pretty shot at sunset on the beach.
"You'll probably never meet someone as special as this," Bookout wrote of her son in the caption. "He really is one of a kind!" She added including the hashtags #bennybaby #godblessedus.

Bookout rose to fame while appearing on MTV's 16 and Pregnant in 2009. Later that year, she joined the spinoff series Teen Mom, later renamed Teen Mom OG for Season 5. In addition to Bentley, Bookout shares son Maverick, 6, and daughter Jayde, 7, with husband Taylor McKinney.

During an appearance on the Baby Mamas No Drama podcast last year, Bookout opened up to co-hosts Kailyn Lowry and Vee Rivera about how long she sees herself as a part of the hit MTV series.
"I used to think, you know, as long as I felt like helping people — even if it's just one person — to show them that they're not alone or that they're not crazy, then I would keep it up," he said Bookout: "As the kids get older, especially Bentley, it's definitely a season-to-season thing. Not to say I never feel like, 'Okay, my time's up next chapter.'"
The reality star continued, "At this point, being selfish — and I'm not saying this in a way that I think is selfish — I feel like the show is an eye opener [about] what I need to work on, what." I have to do face myself. It's just a good reflective tool that most people don't have."
Bookout said that while the long-running series "can definitely break you," she believes there have been many positive learnings throughout her experience.
"I feel like [the] production staff are doing a good job of navigating the kids. If the kids don't want to film, they won't film. They don't lead them, they don't push them," said the Tennessee native. "As long as we can keep steering that and the other positive things are happening, I see no reason to leave the show, but that doesn't mean that none will surrender. It's definitely season after season."
