Teen Mom 3’s Mackenzie Douthit is engaged, moving to San Diego!

Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie Douthit is headed to the altar! Mackenzie took to Twitter Monday night and shared the above photo of her new engagement ring along with the tweet, “I said yes.”

Mackenzie is tying the knot with Josh Mckee, the bull-riding father of her son Gannon, who MTV viewers met on her episode of 16 and Pregnant. The news comes a little less than three months after the two called off their previous engagement in October. Mackenzie explained why she was referring to Josh as her boyfriend and not her fiance any more at the time by tweeting, “Yes, Josh is just my boyfriend. We got rid of the ring for it had too many bad memories. Starting over and doing things right.”

The two got back on track in a hurry with Mackenzie sharing a photo of her and Josh in November with the caption, “I’m so thankful for this amazing guy… He Is my rock who holds me together . He has taught me so much in life and I don’t know what I would do with out him.”

And here are Mackenzie Douthit, Josh McKee, and their son Gannon together on New Year’s Eve:

Getting married isn’t the only major life changing event on Mackenzie and Josh’s horizon, however. The two are apparently packing their bags and moving to San Diego in August! Mackenzie first broke the news on January 3, tweeting, “Any of my followers live in San diago cause you might have to be my new best friend ;( #moving” A follower asked, “ya’ll douthits really moving?” to which Mackenzie responded by writing, “nope just me Gannon and josh.”

So what’s the reason for the move? It seems as though Josh has joined the military and will be stationed there! A fan tweeted, “been here for a few yrs. hubby is stationed at the Marine base” and Mackenzie responded with, “same reason ill be there.”

Congratulations to Mackenzie and Josh! We really, really, really can’t wait for the first Season of Teen Mom 3 to kick off (which has already finished filming), but still no word from MTV on a premiere date.

What’s that? A gratuitous modeling photo of the lovely Mackenzie? You got it!

    All that Teen Mom money, & he still had to join the military?

      They only got a couple thousand from 16 & Pregnant. Their season of Teen Mom hasn’t aired yet, so I doubt they’ve got payed for it. Ratings is how they get money.

      Maybe just MAYBE he’s one of those guys that doesn’t want to be supported by his wife? Is that so hard to believe? Jeez

    WTF is wrong with her eyes in the last picture?!

    I’m pretty surprised she’s still with that guy. They fought over his rodeo crap the whole damn episode.

    I wish them the best! I just hope they don’t rush things like Leah and Corey. They need to take their time, enjoy each other, and grow up a bit! Congratulations!

    She looks like she’s sniffing her armpits in that last photo, what an odd pose.

    Does anyone know if they would still be allowed to film Teen Mom 3 on the military base? I thought maybe that was one of the reasons Ebony and Josh from 16&P S1 couldn’t be chosen for the original Teen Mom.

      You definitely have to get permission. Honestly, I don’t think TM3 is gonna last very long. TM2 has been on a downward spiral viewers-wise. The original TM was the same way. They might not even have to worry about it because there might not be a TM3 Season 2.

    Wow, Gannon doesn’t look like either one of them!

    Who knows if he is even going to be stationed in San Diego after Boot Camp. But I wish them the best of luck!
