The new season of 16 and Pregnant aired tonight with a special double-header. Mackenzie Douthit's episode was up first and it was a great way to open the new season!
Mackenzie is a cheerleader from Oklahoma and her boyfriend, Josh, competes in the Rodeo so they both have big dreams. However, both have their dreams cut short when Mackenzie gets pregnant. To top it off, Josh is involved in a car accident which leaves him injured.
When Mackenzie gives birth to Gannon, he weighed an astounding 9 pounds, 7 ounces. He was very adorable and she and Josh gave him the unique name of Gannon.
Not letting anything get in the way of her dreams, Mackenzie goes right back to tumbling practice, but it is obvious she is out of touch with it. However, with her determined personality, she is sure to be able to regain her skills in no time. Unfortunately, she is not the only one with a determination and Josh wants to get back into riding - despite his injury. Fearing for his safety, Mackenzie is able to talk him out of it.
The two obviously put family first and are still together (and engaged!) Like Teen Mom Chelsea Houska, she is in cosmetology school and says it was a good choice. It is great that she and Josh are still together and that she is continuing her education. It is obvious that both Mackenzie and Josh are very determined to make everything work for the best.
Overall, Mackenzie's 16 and Pregnant episode was well received by viewers. Many felt that she was a lot like original Teen Mom, Maci Bookout. With the first installment of the series ending, many viewers wonder which girls MTV will pick for the newly announced Teen Mom 3. What did you think of Mackenzie Douthit? Would you like to see more of her on the third installment of Teen Mom?
