Teen Mom 3‘s Mackenzie McKee is officially a momma of two! After a difficult pregnancy, Mackenzie and husband Josh McKee welcomed healthy baby girl Jaxie Taylor McKee on at 12:43 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7. Baby Jaxie came in at 8 lbs., 9 oz. and 19 inches long.

UPDATE – Mackenzie’s mom (and Jaxie’s grandma 😉 ) Angie Douthit just tweeted the photo above featuring Mackenzie, Jaxie and Josh and wrote, “Jaxie Taylor is here.” Meanwhile, Mackenzie’s gal pal Jordan was also at the hospital and shared this next photo on instagram with the caption, “Got to meet this little angel today. She is so precious. Can’t wait to see her again and hold her. Love you so much already Jaxie! #babygirl #soprecious”

“I am so thankful for a healthy baby girl,” Mackenzie told InTouch, adding “Jaxie” is a tribute to her grandfather, Jack. “Taylor” is also Mackenzie’s middle name.

Jaxie joins big brother Gannon, who Mackenzie (then Mackenzie Douthit) delivered during her first MTV appearance on 16 & Pregnant.

Mackenzie entered the hospital with Josh by her side on Thursday night. She shared one final belly picture on Instrgram, captioning it “37 weeks.” (See our collection of Mackenzie’s pregnancy progression pictures!) She added a smiley face emoticon, but wasn’t quite as joyful in the actual photo. Can’t blame her for wanting to get the show on the road!

Mom Angie Douthit took over updates on Friday morning, informing fans on Twitter that Mackenzie was getting another C-section. Angie also shared a photo of Mackenzie right before she went into the delivery room…

A short while later, baby Jaxie was born!

While the baby was tended to, the tired momma got help recuperating from her personal assistant.

Mackenzie surprised many fans in August by revealing she was pregnant and married. She later defended her and Josh’s decision, saying on Twitter, “If a doctor told you your body would no longer be able to have babies after the age 21. And your married and 19. What would you do?”

Putting the dissenters’ opinions aside, Mackenzie and Josh went forward with a big ol’ country wedding in August. (The timeline of it all is still confusing, but it seems Mackenzie followed in Teen Mom 2‘s Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin’s shoes by have a courthouse ceremony before a public celebration.)

The next month, Mackenzie and Josh pink-dyed cake to reveal they were expecting a girl. Mackenzie tweeted of her normally stoic husband, “Josh cannot stop smiling. He’s always wanted a little princess to look after.”

The following few months weren’t easy for Mackenzie. In October, she was reportedly attacked and dragged off of a concrete porch. Last month, she revealed her marriage nearly fell apart before “God worked his magic.” Last week, she was hospitalized for unstable blood sugars caused by her Type 1 diabetes.

Doctors ultimately decided to have Mackenzie deliver at 37 weeks to avoid complications. The plan worked…

“My blood sugars and the baby’s were fine during the delivery,” Mackenzie told InTouch.

Besides, all is well that ends well… And that’s exactly how things seemed to go for Mackenzie, considering she spent her last day of pregnancy soaking in a warm bath while getting serenaded by her husband.

Congrats to Mackenzie, Josh and Gannon on the new addition to their family!
