Maci got onto the topic while talking about Taylor's nickname "T-Money" during an appearance on Kailyn Lowry's podcast, Baby Mamas No Drama.
"Sometimes [Bentley will] call [Taylor] T-Money, sometimes he'll call him Taylor," the 29-year-old said.
"Sometimes – it's not extremely often – but if he's talking to the younger kids he'll just call him Dad.
"If it's just us adults and Bentley, it's usually T-Money."
The MTV star added: "That's always been Taylor's nickname, because he had like three different Taylors on his basketball team.
"And so they kind of just gave him that nickname because his last name is McKinney.
"For the whole first year that I knew him before we were even dating, I did not know what his actual name was, I just thought it was T-Money."
Last week, Ryan, his wife Mackenzie, and his parents, Jen and Larry, were fired from Teen Mom after Larry had an explosive row with Taylor during the reunion show.
A teaser from the scene shows Taylor yelling: "Ryan has never been there for him, but y’all put it on Bentley!”
This prompts Larry to push off his couch and lunch towards Taylor, exclaiming: “You know what!”
Ryan follows suit and jumps off the couch toward Larry, but both of their wives hold them back.
Following the firing, Ryan 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 said that while he can’t speak for his parents, he doesn’t believe he and Mackenzie will return to Teen Mom OG.
He continued: “MTV does not really stand for anything we believe in or support.”
Ryan previously told The Sun that the firing hasn’t bothered him, as he said: “I really haven’t given MTV much thought now that I have my own fabrication shop.”
