A congrats is in order for ‘Teen Mom 3’ celeb Mackenzie Douthit-McKee who is expecting her third child with her husband Josh! The reality star and her hubby, who tied the knot in 2013, must be overjoyed — SO exciting!
Mackenzie Douthit-McKee, 21, is allegedly already 20 weeks along in her pregnancy with her husband Josh Mckee, and we can only imagine how excited the couple must be! But amidst this happy time, reports have also claimed that the couple are estranged, resulting in Mackenzie becoming a single mama — yikes!
Allegedly already 20 weeks along, and, as Mackenzie’s reps have confirmed to HollywoodLife.com, expecting her latest bundle of joy in September, Mackenzie and Josh are already parents to son Gannon, 4, and daughter Jaxie, 2. We just love that the two are expanding their family even more! Better yet, according to TMZ, the parents already know the baby’s sex — they’re having a boy!
But while this is supposed to be a joyous time for a couple, reports have circulated that Mackenzie and Josh are currently not together. It’s also not the first time Josh has called it quits as he walked out on the reality TV star last April. But walking out on a pregnant woman? Come on, Josh, not cool!
Even worse, Mackenzie is known for having major health issues while pregnant as the star has long suffered from type 1 diabetes. The illness even posed a threat to her during her first two pregnancies. “Although pregnant people like to eat a lot, I had to eat everything just right. If I had a low blood sugar, it was suffocating the baby, and when I had a high blood sugar, it was giving the baby extra sugar, which made him gain weight,” she revealed to Starcasm of carrying Gannon in a 2012 interview. “It was very hard with all the hormones to keep my blood sugars normal. I did everything right and still had mess ups. So, yes, I had lots of complications. It was very hard. I honestly didn’t think I would make it.”
Wow, we certainly hope this pregnancy goes a lot smoother for the young mother. And if Mackenzie and Josh really are on the rocks, we hope they kiss and make up soon — for the sake of their growing family!
