We have some great news to report: Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee’s newborn son Broncs has been cleared to go home after spending almost three weeks in the NICU with heart, blood and lung problems.

The announcement came moments ago, from Mackenzie’s mother Angie, on Facebook. Grandma Angie shared this next photo and wrote “HE’S HOME!!! They surprised me…I’m super excited! God is so good!”

Angie also shared the photo on Instagram, but wrote a different caption: “Look who came home from the hospital!!! He is precious!”

The timing of the homecoming may have been a surprise, but things were looking very positive for the last few days. On Friday, dad Josh McKee shared a long list of positive things in a Facebook update on their “miracle baby:”

We are still in the NICU yes. However the two holes in his heart are what they were hoping they were and will close on their own with no surgery needed by the time he is one. The thickening of the heart as well has gone down tremendously since birth and fixing itself.

We have decided to leave the Ronald McDonald house and camp out in the NICU room so we can feed him all night and day. He seems to do way better when momma feeds him. He needs my smell and touch.

Since we have been here he took it upon himself to remove his feeding tube and I have been able to get him to eat what they require him to eat for a full 40 hours now … Huge milestone and we are headed in the right direction. ⬆️. He is our miracle baby and we are beyond blessed by all the love and prayers. Josh McKee

Mom Mackenzie hasn’t shared a photo of Broncs at home yet, but she has been keeping fans updated on social media over the past few weeks, revealing that the ordeal has been exhausting. In addition, Mackenzie mentions that she has been struggling with postpartum depression. Here is a timeline of most of her updates from Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat since our last post with dates and captions under the photos. (I’ve included a few from dad Josh as well.)

Mommy and Mr.Broncs … Trying to keep everyone updated on here but doing a much better job on snapchat. We have another week or two plus in the NICU and I’m starting to have some mental break downs being away from my other two and just simply wanting to be at home with my family in one but I’m doing my best . I can’t thank God enough for my husband through this time who has went above and beyond for me and Broncs. I don’t know what I would have done being alone in this time. To stay updated follow kenziedouthit94 on snapchat. Love you all and thank you for all your kind words.

Doing business here at the Ronald McDonald house. This month was something that we were NOT prepared for. Thinking I would have a planned C section to emergency C section and weeks, maybe months in the NICU. Let’s just say I have a whole new respect for NICU moms because I am an emotional roller coaster. But we as humans must learn to adjust in life, this is what it is and prayer Is what Baby Broncs needs from me. However I have realized how amazingly blessed I am to have found this network marketing company back in December. As I’m sitting her running a successful business through an app on my phone and laptop right from a NICU and Ronald McDonald home, I am honestly amazed. Life is good and I have so much to be thankful for. Thank you everyone for your continued thoughts and prayers. Be sure to follow my snaps to keep up with my crazy life @ kenziedouthit94 #Godisgood #entrepreneur #successful #cashflow #helpingothers #dreambig #iwanttogohome #kyani #teamfusion

    Yeah I guess he is a miracle baby… a miracle he’s alive because you can’t manage to control your diabetes and all the hurt and pain he’s felt in his short life is because of you and your poor choices!

    And this is her third kid and she still spells “partum” as “pardom”?

    • Chewy

      I agree. And the “pardom” thing kills me every time.

    • Victoria

      Why do I have a feeling IMA see this train wreck on marriage boot camp or family therapy

      • bambiglanville

        I honestly feel like she keeps popping them out to try and keep this man of hers.

  • Chewy

    Stupid, uneducated girl. “Pardom.” Let’s hope she’s done having babies. Obvious body issues and real immature.

    • Ace

      I know, right.. How do you go through all these pregnancies and not know how to spell “post-partum” 😀

  • TNC

    Do they still live at home with her parent’s?

    • Victoria

      Probably so, in the basement

    • sheATEthebow

      No, they bought a trailer several years ago.

  • shebee

    Has she actually been told by a medical professional she has postpartum depression or is this something she has just decided on her own? i feel like she has a bit of a flair for the dramatic.

    • Stacy

      She is being dramatic. The blues are normal after pregnancy. When is lasts longer and you start losing joy it’s ppd.

  • TA

    Please PLEASE do NOT have any more children. If anyone is a candidate for mandatory sterilization, it’s her.

    • pink Glitter

      Ive seen worse people.. Ideally she won’t have anymore but she’s no worse than janelle.

  • Jelly

    Ugh. God isn’t good. If God was good then they could have just taken him home right away. Give credit to the doctors and nurses that deserve it. Modern medicine and science! Also, post partum depression. No. Probably just the baby blues if anytime.

    • Victoria

      God is good no matter what

  • Guest

    What’s the name of her business?

  • DM

    I’m glad that Broncs is doing a lot better. Now can Mackenzie please get her tubes tied!

  • Ness

    What a chubber…he’s so cute!

  • Liz

    Poor poor poor poor poor poor baby.

  • Ali

    I though her uterus was supposed to break when she turned twenty. Shame it didn’t.
