Mackenzie McKee is just one month away from welcoming her and husband Josh McKee’s third baby. Ahead of the child’s arrival, the former “Teen Mom 3” star has announced what they plan to name their newest bundle of joy.
Mackenzie recently revealed on Snapchat that she and Josh have decided on the name Broncs for their baby boy. Baby name databases don’t have the unique moniker listed, but it appears the name has meaning to the couple. Starcasm reports that Broncs is an ode to Josh’s love for rodeo.
This isn’t the first time the Oklahoma-based couple, who rose to fame after starring on MTV’s “16 and Pregnant,” have chosen non-traditional names for their children. The couple also share son Gannon, 4, and daughter Jaxie, 2. However, fans should not expect another addition to the McKee family after baby Broncs.
Last month, Mackenzie released a gender reveal video, revealing to viewers that the new baby would be their last. The 21-year-old reconfirmed the choice to stop family planning in a Fourth of July post. “Happy Fourth from our growing family to yours,” she captioned a photo of her family, adding the hashtags “#ihavebigbabies” and “#lastmckeetobemade.”
While Mackenzie has not stated recently if her Type 1 diabetes is the reason for their decision not to have any more children, she has previously spoken out about the difficulties it causes during pregnancy. In a 2012 interview with Starcasm after welcoming Gannon the former MTV star said she had to closely monitor her blood sugar levels not to harm her son.
“It affected my pregnancy a lot. Gannon was bigger than normal. I had to have an ultrasound three days a week to check up on his weight,” she said.
When asked to give advice to women who suffer from Type 1 diabetes planning to get pregnant, Mackenzie stressed the importance of prepping your body for the change. “If you are a Type 1 diabetic, I advise you to prepare for a baby,” she said. “I don’t ever plan on having any more babies in the future, that’s how hard it was.”
