PHOTOS Mackenzie McKee reveals she and Josh eloped before MTV wedding

Mackenzie McKee and husband Josh secretly eloped

Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee just confirmed that she and husband Josh McKee were married before their cowboy-themed wedding featured on the show. Mackenzie shared some never-before-seen photos from her and Josh’s secret elopement on Snapchat, including one with the newlyweds consummating their on-the-sly marriage with a kiss:

“Bet you had no clue we eloped behind everyone’s backs (including parents) and got married before our big wedding,” Mackenzie captioned one photo, before adding a laughing face emoji and describing her and Josh as “crazy kids in love.”

I thought I remembered something about Mackenzie and Josh potentially getting married prior to their wedding in August of 2013, so I went searching through the Starcasm archives. Sure enough, less than a week before she and Josh boot scooted down the aisle together on August 17, 2013, Mackenzie tweeted about already being married — for months!

To provide a little context, Mackenzie made headlines when she revealed she and Josh were expecting their second child together on August 12. In the process of dealing with the negative reactions to her pregnancy announcement, Mackenzie revealed on Twitter that she and Josh were already married, and had been for a while.

Mackenzie’s tweets:

In addition to the elopement photos, Mackenzie also shared numerous other older pictures of Josh on Snapchat, including one that she captioned with “My ♥.” Here’s another:

    No offense to anyone but they shouldn’t calls themselves “kids” anymore. They have *3* kids between. Time to grow up little girl!

  • Leah’s Cheeto Crumbs

    Prime example of someone who wants the all of the fairytale and none of the work.

  • Stacy

    She got knocked up so they got a quickie marriage cause you know, 3 pregnancies out of wedlock for super religious people is a bit of a no-no.

    • Al

      You forgot about Oakley who was a late miscarriage before Gannon and the miscarriage she had around 14 weeks after Gannon (I can’t remember if Jaxie was born or not at that point)

      • kiki

        That would be literally impossible since Jaxie is younger than Gannon. If Gannon was 14 weeks at the miscarriage, there’s no way she could have had another successful pregnancy in 14 weeks.

        • Ashley

          I think Al meant that Mackenzie miscarried at 14 weeks pregnant, at some point after she had given birth to Gannon – possibly between his and Jaxie’s births.

  • Ashley

    I think she meant to write “sorry guys – going through my old laptop and trying to find any way to extend my 15 minutes of fame” ?

    • TrashTV

      LOL! Spot on.

  • :)

    She is so annoying lol.

  • Victoria

    How she famous again?

  • AshleyBlack

    That poor child. I know what she’s doing. She’s sharing pictures of their happy times trying to convince everyone they’re all happy and lovey Dovey. I don’t think josh ever loved her. He always looks like he’s being forced to be with her.

    • Blah

      Sadly I feel that she’s way more into him than he is to her. I feel that he may love her but is not in love with her if you get what I mean.

      • AshleyBlack

        Yes, I understand what you’re saying.

  • HLB

    I thought they hated each other & were getting divorced….she said he told her to “go kill herself”..Will they patch things up? Waiting w/ baited breath… NOT

    • Blah

      Unbelievable. Did he really say that?

  • ChelseaHouskasEyebrows

    News flash little girl, nobody cares.

  • Ummm….

    Anyone else curious as to why there’s a guy in bed in the reflection in the “hottie” pic…….
