Teen Mom 3 Mackenzie McKee birth of son Broncs

We have some great news and some concerning news for Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee as she gave birth to her third child, son Broncs, on Monday. Broncs was delivered via C-section and weighed in at 10 pounds, 1 ounce. Mackenzie’s mother Angie has been updating friends, fans and family on Facebook, and she reveals that Broncs has been placed in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), where he will remain for a week.

According to Angie, who was unable to see her grandson at the hospital on Monday, Broncs has a thick heart wall and has been given a navel IV and a tube for breathing. “Pray he doesn’t need surgery,” Angie added.

Those familiar with Mackenzie know that she has type 1 diabetes, and Angie says that Broncs’ complications stem from that. It was an issue they knew would probably arise before Mackenzie gave birth. From Angie prior to the C-section:

Prayer alert: Mackenzie is having a c section n a few minutes. She is type 1 diabetic and the babies heart rate is high. He will be in the NICU for a while even though he weighs over 9 pounds, (according to ultrasound). Mic is very nervous and scared. Please pray.

Our thoughts are with Mackenzie, Josh and the rest of their family. We hope little Broncs’ hospital stay is a short one and that he is home soon with his mom, dad, and older siblings Gannon and Jaxie!

UPDATE – Here’s another photo of bigg little Broncs plus an update on his condition from Grandma Angie:

Baby Broncs update: he is still on oxygen to regulate his breathing and an IV in his navel to regulate his blood sugars. He can’t be fed until he’s off the oxygen and he can’t be held until he gets the IV out of his navel. He is on meds for his heart rate and his blood pressure. He looks like a giant in the NICU since he weighs 10 pounds. We appreciate your prayers. God is good and He is in control!

    Poor baby! I hope he gets better soon.

    It is MacKenzie’s poor control of her diabetes that is the cause of the baby’s complications. It’s well known that MacKenzie has never controlled her diabetes well, and that is dangerous for an unborn baby (not to mention MacKenzie as well!).

    It is possible to have type 1 diabetes and have a healthy pregnancy. It takes hard work and effort to be in control, and even more so during a pregnancy, but it is completely possible. I have had type 1 diabetes for 27 years, and I personally know several women who have worked hard to have healthy pregnancies and were successful at it.

    MacKenzie is just lazy/ignorant/dumb and doesn’t take care of herself, which sadly has affected her new baby.

    Baby number four will be here in a few years.

    Wow, how can a person be so selfish that they allow their poorly controlled diabetes harm their unborn child?

    Time for someone to get fixed and stop having kids before something worse happens!

    He’s so handsome. I hope he gets better soon.

    That poor baby doesn’t need to suffer bc she doesn’t know how to properly take care of herself with her diabetes

    • Bruja

      I think she knows, but doesn’t care.. which makes it worse. 🙁

  • Chewy

    STOP HAVING BABIES! Focus on being healthy and not putting yourself at risk of dying for another pregnancy when 3 little lives depend on you now

    Re the update, I find it so sad that the poor baby needs to have his blood sugar regulated, all thanks to his mother’s poor control. All of the babies I know who were born to diabetic mother’s in good control didn’t need to have that done to them 🙁

    MacKenzie has had at least several wake up calls – her prior pregnancies, the time she crashed her car supposedly due to high blood sugar, and now her baby having unregulated blood sugar levels – will anything get her to take care of herself??

    • Bruja

      I am really surprised that hospitals don’t treat issues like this as child endangerment. IMO, this is as bad as the mother’s that go and get high through their whole pregnancy. Most of them know the devastating issues it’ll cause, but they’re so into themselves, they give no shits. In the end, it’s the kids that suffer.

  • Kendra

    So sad. I hope he’s regulated and out of the NICU soon. He’s such a sweet little chunky man.

  • Stacey

    That is a massive baby and his sugars must be pretty bad to need a navel IV. I wonder why his heart rate is still high and why he’s on high/low flow for his air. Seems they need to keep his lungs pressurized.

    And yes this is all related to her diabetes.

    • Ashley

      Sadly, heart failure and respiratory problems are a possible complication for babies whose mother’s have high blood sugars during pregnancy 🙁

      This makes me so mad at MacKenzie – she is at fault for starting her child’s life off poorly, and the worst thing is that this could all have been prevented!!!

      • Mika

        Ya apparently he has an enlarged heart with a hole in it, weak lungs and now a blood infection. NOT good. How selfish of her to not manage her diabetes.

  • savannah

    Can this dumb bitch stop having babies now? She is so irresponsible and her babies suffer due to her crap choices
