Mackenzie McKee’s step to stardom was first through MTV’s ’16 and Pregnant’ in 2011 and then in the spin-off series ‘Teen Mom 3’ and again in the renamed series ‘Teen Mom OG.’ The Miami, Oklahoma, native was born in 1994 as Mackenzie Taylor Douthit to her parents Brad and Angie Douthit. She is one of the four children of her parents, and her siblings consist of one brother, Zeke, and two sisters, Kaylee and Whitney. However, Mackenzie has not had a smooth life since she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the young age of 11.
She was a cheerleader at Miami High School. She started dating her current partner and the father of all her children, Josh McKee, in 2010. Mackenzie has a degree in cosmetology. She had her first child, her son Gannon, in 2011 during her teen years, which landed her on ’16 and Pregnant.’ Due to her diabetic conditions, Gannon was born a little heavier than normal new-born babies should weigh. She later went on to give birth to two more children, daughter Jaxie Taylor (born in 2014) and son Broncs Weston (born in 2016). Mackenzie lost her mother in 2019 to a long battle against cancer.
Following her mother’s death, Mackenzie and Josh split briefly owing to allegations of infidelity made by Mackenzie against Josh. The couple, who were married in 2013, separated in 2019. However, Mackenzie’s recent posts on her social media have shown that the two are working at rekindling their romance after Mackenzie accepted that she was an “idiot” for accusing Josh of cheating on her with her cousin.
