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!
