Maci, 29, took to Instagram on Saturday to push aside her feud with her high school baby daddy and current wife to celebrate her son.

Along with a picture of Bentley with his two half-siblings from Maci's side, she wrote: "LET'S GOOO!

"That's a wrap on the Region tournament. These cuties all qualified, and are TNAAU State bound!"

Jayde, 5, Maverick, 4, and Bentley were all wearing their wrestling suits as they proudly showed off their medals.

Fans of Teen Mom OG got to see the kids training with coaches as they got ready to qualify and compete.

Maci celebrating her children for their accomplishments comes just one day after she slammed Mackenzie on social media for talking about her kids to strangers.

After fans had slammed Bentley's stepmom for insinuating Bentley was lying about Ryan not speaking to him during a birthday party, Maci, who shared Mackenzie's comment on Instagram, wrote: "Mackenzie is brave sitting on a couch responding to strangers on social media about my son, but still not brave enough to sit on a couch and talk to me at the reunion."

Maci's anger towards Mackenzie comes after Teen Mom OG showed the ups and downs between Ryan and Bentley, especially after the preteen expressed he wanted to go to therapy over it.

Bentley was planning on going to his half-brother Jagger’s birthday party when it was going to be at his grandparents’ house, but when he learned it was going to be it at his estranged dad’s place, he wasn’t so sure.

After a lot of drama between Bentley’s parents and step-parents, he ended up going to the event, but he claimed his dad barely spoke to him, aside from a greeting.

This outraged viewers, especially once they saw that Mackenzie had posted a happy photo of the kids all together at the party, despite Bentley apparently having an awful time and an uncomfortable reunion with his dad.

Mackenzie captioned the series of pics: “Yesterday we celebrated Jaggy’s birthday! Safe to say we had a great time! 

“How could you not have a blast around this bunch? My heart is full.”

Fans slammed her for it, writing: “The fact that you really posted this picture knowing that y'all didn't even speak to Bentley the whole time he was there is sad.”

Mackenzie defended herself and her husband, clapping back: “the fact you honestly believe that is very sad.”

This hinting that Bentley lied about his dad not talking to him at the party, arriving late, and staying mostly in a separate room away from everyone, only angered Teen Mom fans even more.

Mackenzie shares 2-year-old son Jagger and 11-month-old daughter Stella with husband Ryan, while she also has son Hudson from a previous relationship.

Fans have been accusing her lately of not caring as much about her step-son Bentley as she does her own kids, as well as not being considerate of his feelings.

Bentley's parents and stepparents have been involved in one of the most iconic feuds of Teen Mom OG as Taylor most recently threatened Ryan's family for coming after Maci.

The Ashley's Reality Roundup revealed that Maci "exploded" at Ryan's parents during the upcoming season reunion.

But Taylor offered a deeper look into the feud and where he stands when he told The Hollywood Gossip about the upcoming episode.

He said: "You’ll have to see the reunion play out on TV but one thing I am always going to do is stand up for my wife and kids.

"You come for my wife and kids? I’m coming for you.”

Taylor's response to the feud comes after a production source told The Ashley's that Maci lost her cool after she faced off with Ryan's parents during the season reunion.

Producers reportedly had tried to get the couple to face off with Ryan and his wife Mackenzie at first, but they refused.

An insider told the outlet: “You could cut the tension with a knife when they were all sitting out there.

“But everything was OK until the very end of the segment.”

Ryan's mom Jen was reportedly concerned that Maci was acting angry and distant and kept asking her what was wrong.

“Maci kept giving vague answers and was making it clear she was upset but would not say why,” the source said.

Taylor finally "exploded on" Jen and Larry, the insider said, and slammed Ryan's parenting of his son, Bentley.

The source said: “He told them Ryan is a ‘piece of s**t’ and that he, unlike Ryan, has been there for Bentley for a long time.

“He told Larry and Jen that Ryan should be more like he is.

“[Taylor] kind of got up and eventually asked Larry if he wanted to take things outside. It didn’t get that far, though. Nothing got physical.”

Maci then allegedly came to blows with the Edwards, calling Jen a "manipulative b***h" before they stormed off the stage.
