TEEN Mom fans were left “heartbroken” as Ryan Edwards’ parents Jen and Larry talked about his battle with addiction in a resurfaced clip.
Redditors discovered a clip from the MTV reality show featuring Ryan, now 34.
Jenni, the show’s producer, revealed that the Teen Mom OG alum had returned home from his stint in rehab.
Larry, Ryan’s father, opened up and said: “And for the 30 days he was in rehab…”
Ryan’s mother added: “It was such a relief.”
Larry continued: “It was the best I ever felt because I knew he was going to be okay.
“I knew that I wasn’t going to get a call and somebody tell me that I needed to come to the hospital or whatever.”
He concluded: “That’s scary” as Jen burst into tears.
She added: “I’m always looking for signs of something. I don’t want something to happen and think I could’ve done something different.”
Jenni also became teary-eyed as the couple expressed their love for their troubled son.

Teen Mom fans jumped into the comments sections and expressed their sympathy as they were saddened by the emotional footage.
One fan said: “Just super hard trying to love someone out and past their addictions.”
Another fan wrote: “Man, my heart goes out to them. That’s tough.”
A third fan mentioned: “It is so hard loving an addict. It’s so hard to navigate and you’re always wondering if your actions are sparking or helping.”
A fourth person stated: “I can’t villainize Ryan’s parents. Yes, they are enablers and they should absolutely educate themselves in addictive behavior but I can’t fault them for loving their son.”
A commentator chimed in: “That’s heartbreaking!
“It’s such a catch 22 because society should have an addict in a home but it’s maddening to be the one who has to live in the home with the addict.”
FATHER & DAUGHTER TIME
Recently, Ryan’s wife shared a rare photo of the reality star with his young daughter Stella.
Mackenzie, 25, shared a snapshot of her husband with his brand new motorcycle on Instagram.
He wore a red shirt and had his black cap on backward.
The MTV dad planted a kiss on the little one, who was sitting on the Harley with him.
Stella had on a green outfit as her long blonde hair was tied into a ponytail.
Mackenzie wrote: “Just a dad, his daughter, and his Harley,” along with a back heart emoji.
In an Instagram Story, Stella sat on the Harley by herself.
The infant smiled at the camera as she kicked up her legs.
She held her arms out as if she was pretending to ride the motorcycle.
Along with her kids Jagger and Stella, Mackenzie also shares son Hudson, eight, with her ex-husband, Zachary Stephens.
The former reality star, her hubby Ryan, and his family were fired from the popular series amid the drama with his ex Maci Bookout, 30, and husband Taylor McKinney, 32.
Ryan shares his 13-year-old son Bentley with Maci, who now has two kids Jayde, six, and Maverick, five, with Taylor.
