Mackenzie Douthit and Josh McKee welcomed a baby girl this afternoon! Mackenzie delivered her via C-Section and she weighed in at 8 lbs, 9 oz.
The Teen Mom 3 star named her daughter Jaxie Taylor. No, Mackenzie's not a hardcore Vanderpump Rules fan! The name is in honor of Mackenzie's grandfather Jack Taylor. And Taylor is also Mackenzie's middle name.
Mackenzie tells In Touch, "I am so thankful for a healthy baby girl. Many friends and family were praying and everything went great! She is a beautiful miracle from God. I feel very blessed.”
She credits the pregnancy with saving her marriage to Josh. “Jaxie saved my marriage with Josh and kept our love alive. God’s timing is not always our timing, but He always knows best.”
Proud grandma Angela (her mom) shared photos via Twitter of baby Jaxie – and of big brother Gannon anxiously awaiting his sister's arrival.

Earlier this week MTV confirmed the much suspected cancelation of Teen Mom 3. The much lower drama of trainwreck favorites TM1 & TM2 was a ratings snooze for the network.
"MTV will not be moving forward with a second season of Teen Mom 3," a network representative confirmed. "We’re thankful to Briana, Katie, Mackenzie, Alex and their families for sharing their stories as they navigate young parenthood and for helping to have a positive impact on the importance of teen pregnancy prevention.
Despite the lackluster storylines, one of the castmembers was definitely a lightening rod for controversy: Mackenzie Douthit! Now seven-months pregnant with her second baby, a daughter, with baby-daddy-turned-husbandJosh McKee, the diabetic former cheerleader is often criticized for her choices.
Briana added, "We were all shocked but I'm glad I was given a chance to share my story and change others! That's all that matters. Time to move on from MTV and do bigger and better things, and no, I don't mean become a porn star."
No Princess Briana: Couch Bound Teen Mom to look forward to? Bummer.
DISCLAIMER: the Teen Mom 3 reunion was taped on November 3, 2012. Yes. MTV is giving us footage that's over a year old to "update" us on the season.
Nevertheless, season one of Teen Mom 3 has come to an end, so it's time for the new Teen Mom cast to talk to Dr. Drew Pinsky. (FOR TWO HOURS!)
The reunion kicks off with Katie Yeager and Joey Maes. Surprise – they are back together! You see, every time Joey's new girlfriend nagged him, it reminded him of Katie. And Joey eventually came to realize that Katie's the only nagger for him. Isn't that sweet?
Katie reveals that Joey was with Brigette for a month before he came back to her. Everything that went wrong is still Joey's fault, of course, but Katie says she's trying to move on, adding, "The only way we're going to forgive and trust is if we move on."
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
To kick things off, Mackenzie buys a pair of chaps for Gannon. Ha! Why not? Dressing the baby like an adult cowboy makes perfect sense when Mackenzie doesn't have a job, Josh doesn't have a job, and Gannon, despite winning the family IQ race, is too young to have a job.
An excited Mackenzie calls Josh to gush about her superfluous purchase. He accepts the call – listens – but rushes off the phone without ever expressing a single emotion. Phone calls are hard, y'all. Mackenzie's friend points out that Josh is barely alive, adding, "He needs to get a pulse in touch with his feelings." Mackenzie says she totally heard excitement in Josh's voice.
Arabella's first birthday is just a few days away. Alex decides she'd rather Matt not come to the party – because he'll sulk when he has to share Arabella with others – but she welcomes him to one-on-one time with her on her actual birth day. Sadly, as of right now, Matt has not returned any of Alex's calls. His loss! Alex puts her baby daddy drama on the back burner to deal with her own daddy. She invites him to Arabella's party despite tension since she became a teen mom. He says yes.
Katie obsesses over Joey Maes. She complains non-stop to poor Molli and whomever else is willing to listen. Also? Katie fails to see that she's equally responsible for their breakup. Perpetual victim, this one. Everything is Joey's fault. She'll never be able to forgive him. Blah. Blah. Unless he wants her back, then maybe… probably… definitely. This girl needs a serious reality check and an ounce of self esteem. STAT.
