Ryan Edwards, known for his role on MTV’s “Teen Mom” branded franchise of reality shows, finished a 90-day stay at a rehab facility for alleged drug addiction on Thanksgiving, In Touch Weekly noted. While he was away from home, Edwards missed out on his wife Mackenzie Standifer giving birth in October to the couple’s son, Jagger Ryan Edwards.

Reality star ‘totally’ drank a beer’

The TV star dad was recently spotted on December 6 at dinner with Standifer and their baby boy at Edley’s Bar-B-Que, according to Celebrity Insider.

Edwards reportedly “drank a beer.” A source told the publication that it was a Budweiser Light beer, adding, “ He totally had a beer.”

Heroin reportedly teen dad’s drug of choice

One beer does not make for a sudden relapse for Ryan, who is allegedly addicted to heroin, as documented in the past by numerous media outlets. “Teen Mom” fans were ultra concerned for him, as well as for Standifer after MTV aired a tape of Edwards when he appeared to fall asleep while driving a truck.

Standifer seemed to have turned off the MTV camera mounted inside the vehicle. The incident happened before the couple was married.

Despite Edwards’ past legal problems, involving arrests that evolved from reportedly abusing drugs, the pair followed through with their plan to get married, which also worried “Teen Mom” fans. Not only were MTV viewers thinking about Edwards and Standifer, but also his son Bentley.

MTV fans will not see baby boy on reality show
