While Ryan is Bentley's biological father, the preteen lives with Maci and Taylor.
During the reunion, Taylor said: “Bentley is becoming a young man. I think he’s shown the Edwards that he’s found his voice. He can think for himself.”
He said of Ryan: “Ya’ll saw the clip. He sat there and called my wife a b***h. In past seasons the things he’s done to Bentley, poking fun at him, making fun of him, calling him a cry baby. Enough is enough. Grow up and be a man. Don’t be a coward. Come sit out here and sit on the couch with us.”
He said how Ryan won’t speak to them because Maci is a “trigger” for his sobriety.
When asked if they think Ryan is sober now, Taylor responded: “No I don’t. This is our opinion.
"It’s based on when he shows up to something or when you see him sitting there in a scene and he can’t hardly keep his eyes open. That’s not a place I feel safe to send our son with that guy.”
As fans flooded Twitter to congratulate Taylor for defending Bentley, Maci showed her appreciation by liking the tweets.
One post she liked read: "I have a new love and appreciation for Taylor standing up for Bentley and calling him 'our son'."
Another wrote: "Listen, Taylor did not come to play with you h**s! I knew he was a real one but when he said 'OUR SON' I was giving that man a standing ovation! THAT'S A MAN."
A third posted: "Damn! Taylor not even on for 30 seconds and he's giving me such life protecting his wife and SON."
Fans will know that after the reunion, Jen and Larry – along with Ryan and his wife, Mackenzie – were all fired from Teen Mom OG.
Ryan called being let go from the show a “blessing in disguise.”
He said in an exclusive interview with The Sun: “We are so happy that we are no longer doing it. This is the happiest I’ve been since before I started taking pain killers. It makes me real happy to see my wife so happy so I couldn’t ask for much more.”
Ryan added: “Mackenzie’s doing her thing with her business and I am starting my own fabrication business building off-road race cars and racing them as well.”
Ryan previously told The Sun Maci got the family fired out of “retaliation” after Larry fought with her husband at the reunion.
Ryan, who is also dad to son Jagger, 2, Stella, 1, and stepson Hudson, exclusively told The Sun: “Maci is in fear that my mom and dad will start telling the truth. She will always fight to have us off the show.”
Ryan’s father told The Sun in October that the Teen Mom OG dad is “not allowed” to see Bentley, as the family “hasn’t gotten to see him very much.”
He previously said of Ryan and Maci: “Their relationship hasn’t been going well. It’s not any better. Something came up that she wanted and needed.
Maci has been on the outs with Ryan ever since his jail and rehab stints for heroin abuse.
On the most recent season, Bentley refused to see his father until he agreed to go to therapy with him to work on their strained relationship.
