Last night, Mackenzie was admitted to the hospital, and today she and Josh have welcomed their first daughter into the world. Angie Douthit, Mackenzie’s mother, kept people updated on the day’s events via Twitter and Instagram, which gave us a little bit of a timeline on how things went down.
Last night, Angie shared the following picture around 7:00, which is the last belly picture we’ll see of Mackenzie’s pregnancy.
This morning, Angie shared some pictures of Josh, Mackenzie, and Gannon, who were all preparing for the arrival of baby McKee.
A couple hours after Angie stated that Mackenzie was going back for her C-section, In Touch released a story giving a few details of the baby’s arrival, including the name of the couple’s daughter. Mackenzie and Josh decided to name her Jaxie Taylor McKee. Jaxie is in honor of Mackenzie’s grandfather, Jack, who passed away shortly after Gannon was born, and Taylor happens to be Mackenzie’s middle name. There are currently no pictures of the baby, but all seems to be going well for both Jaxie and Mackenzie.
Here’s a picture of Josh and Mackenzie with baby Jaxie, which Angie Douthit shared on Twitter.
Here’s a better picture of Jaxie. Mackenzie’s friend, Jordan, posted this one to Instagram today.
Jaxie was born at 12:43 pm on February 7, 2014. She weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz. and was 19 inches long.
