It’s not unusual for pregnant moms that suffer from diabetes to have a much larger baby belly than other women. However, seeing 19-year-old Mackenzie’s oversized baby belly on her tiny frame just before giving birth on Feb. 7 was a sight to see. Now, just two weeks after having her daughter Jaxie Taylor via C-section, Mackenzie is proudly showing off a much slimmer figure on her Instagram account.

Mackenzie’s Pregnancy Health Scare
On Feb. 6, HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively that Mackenzie would give birth to Jaxie Taylor via a scheduled c-section after some major health concerns due to her Type 1 Diabetes. Mackenzie’s blood sugar dropped multiple times as the delivery date neared, and doctor’s decided it was best for her to give birth a couple of weeks earlier to avoid any further complications.
