Now a mum-of-two and happily married, she playfully self-styles as “that girl who got pregnant at 13”.

It has not all been smooth sailing for Maddie, who has some regrets from her teenage years. 

When she welcomed Everly Joy, now six, the teen mum found herself embroiled in a very public custody spat with the teen dad’s family. 

And years later, she has shared her regret over “publicly beefing with her baby daddy” on social media. 

She also regrets VLOGGING the custody hearing process for thousands of strangers on the internet to see. 

Maddie welcomed her second child in March, a baby boy named Ryder James, with her husband, Randy Crowley.

And although Everly has a different dad to her little brother, he’s still in the picture following the public custody battle in 2018.

He and Maddie, from Texas, US, had already separated before finding out she was pregnant. 

Maddie took to Instagram to confess her teen mum regrets.

“2018/2019 Maddie was a mess,” she said. 


What’s more, the social media star has previously admitted that she regrets being judgmental towards other teen mums.

Before Maddie gave birth to little Everly Joy in January 2018 at 14-years-old, she says she used to “judge” other teen mums. 

“I’d always look down on teen mums, if I’m being completely honest,” she revealed. 

“I think that was just from a lack of knowing what it’s really like.
