Mackenzie Douthit and her husband, Josh McKee, welcomed their third child on Monday.

According to reports, the Teen Mom 3 star gave birth days ago and a short time later, her son, Broncs, was taken to the NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit).

"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," Douthi's mom, Angie, wrote on her Facebook page prior to the birth, according to a report by Starcasm.

Following the birth, Douthit's mom offered an update.

"Baby Broncs update: he is still on oxygen to regulate his breathing and an IV in his navel to regulate his blood sugars," Angie explained. "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!"

Before welcoming baby no. 3, Douthit shared a photo of her baby bump on Instagram.


"Momma is getting impatient. I'm so ready to hold baby boy and so blessed with friends and family, at my 35 week appointment he was measuring over 10 pounds. My body truly amazes me," Douthit wrote in the caption.
