Teen Mom OG‘s Maci Bookout‘s new baby girl has made her social media debut!

Jayde Carter tugs at heartsrings in her mama’s latest Instagram posts.

Early Thursday, Bookout, 23 — who welcomed her daughter in May — posted a photo of big brother Bentley kissing his sleeping little sister on the forehead.

Moments earlier, the reality star posted a photo of Jayde in the arms of boyfriend Taylor McKinney. “Introducing the prettiest girl in the world! Jayde Carter McKinney,” she captioned the sweet snapshot, captured by Brittany Photographs.

In March, Bookout told PEOPLE Bentley — her son with ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards — was looking forward to being a big brother.

“He’s so excited for the baby,” the mom-to-be said of her 6 year old. “And I’m excited for him to have a sibling. I think it will be good for him to finally have to share the spotlight.”

So with everyone settling into their new roles, could wedding bells be next? “We definitely want to get married and we’ve talked about it a lot,” Bookout has said.

Cute baby but it’s a shame she gave her such a masculine name. Jayde is okay but she should have given her a really feminine middle name so she wouldn’t be mistaken for a boy.

Milly, people go by their first names, not middle names. So your comment is really dumb.

Beautiful baby.

And Milly, it’s completely commonplace to use a family name as a middle name. Many, many girls have surnames for their middle name, and no one with any common sense is going to think she’s a boy named Jayde just because she has Carter for a middle name.

Precious little girl! Good luck to the McKinney/Bookout family! ❤

I read her middle name is after June Carter. 🙂 I think it’s sweet.

Here’s another teen mom, who sat with Bristol Palin, giving speeches about preventing pregnancy. Both of them flying all over, making money, preaching about abstinence and birth control. Now both having an unplanned second kid with a different baby daddy. Both women are single. I personally do not care, but come on, they both need to stop representing what they don’t actually live. Having said that, the babies are innocent, so I welcome them into the world & wish them well.

Milly, can’t believe she didn’t take your thoughts about names when considering HER babies name.

Gym, she isn’t single and this baby was planned.

Maci has said that this pregnancy was planned because she has endometriosis I believe and they didn’t know if they’d be able to have more kids later on

While I like Maci….of COURSE this pregnancy was planned…Maci is trying to get married and has been forever. So the last two sentences of this article made me LOL. “It’s something we’ve talked about a lot”.

Oh Yes….I have NO doubt about that, Maci
