Meet Josh Panter, Teen Mom Star Mackenzie Edwards Rumored Boyfriend
Josh Panter and Mackenzie Edwards started dating in early 2023. According to Josh, he had known the Teen Mom star for “10 years or so” before they reconnected in Jan 2023. “Mackenzie and I are friends and enjoy each other’s company. Neither of us is worried about ‘titles.’ We both just came out of a marriage,” he added.
We’ll discuss Josh’s previous marriage later. As for Mackenzie, she met Ryan Edwards in May 2016, got engaged in December, and faced a setback when Ryan was arrested for heroin possession in March 2017. Despite Ryan appearing to be under the influence, they proceeded with their wedding in May. Sadly, in June, her ex-husband had to enter a treatment facility for substance abuse.
After Ryan’s first stint in rehab, the couple had a second wedding ceremony in November 2017. The next year, they welcomed their first child, Jagger, in October 2018. Then, in Jan 2020, they welcomed their second child, a daughter named Stella.
Unfortunately, in Jan 2023, Ryan accused Mackenzie of cheating on IG, which led to his arrest for violating a protective order in February. Mackenzie then filed for divorce, and Ryan faced additional arrests in March and April.
Amidst their controversy, Josh’s mother also confirmed that her son was dating the Teen Mom star. “My blonde bandits … I love them littles,” Josh’s mother shared a FB post alongside a series of photos from the family’s trip to Orange Beach, Alabama, in early June.
Though Mackenzie was not seen in any of the photos, she was tagged in the post.

“Being married to you is one of my greatest accomplishments… I’m so proud to have you as my husband and most importantly the father of our little girl,” Brooklynn wrote on her FB at the time. “You do so much for our family and work SO hard for us every single day.
Sadly, they divorced in Feb 2023.
An insider revealed their tumultuous marriage. “Josh and Brooklynn had a rocky relationship, but she stuck it out for the kids and his family. She wanted everything to be better. She didn’t want her kids in a broken home,” he said. “She wanted affection and attention from him, and for him to dedicate his time to their children. He wasn’t very romantic.”
Also, the insider alleged that Brooklynn was a stay-at-home mother, wife, and homemaker who “couldn’t push on in life feeling like a single mother in a marriage.”

Also, Brooklynn was on good terms with the Teen Mom star. “Mackenzie reached out to Brooklynn herself and asked if she would want to do lunch at the beginning of March. Brooklynn wanted to meet her because she was around her kids. She was also concerned about the drama with Ryan,” the insider said. “Mackenzie said she would never cross any lines because these are Brooklynn’s kids.”
