Teen Mom's Mackenzie Douthit McKee’s new baby is ready to hit the rodeo already

Teen Mom alum Mackenzie Douthit McKee and her husband Josh have reportedly welcomed their third — and final — tot into their former family of four. The new addition, a little boy named Broncs Weston McKee, will join brother Gannon, 4, and sister Jaxie, who is 2.

The name Broncs is no surprise, but the little man's middle moniker — Weston — may just provide a little insight into why the couple chose such an unusual spelling for their son's name. Since dad is familiar to the rodeo circuit, and because the middle name so readily recalls images of wild horses and Rough Riders, it's more than possible that this little dude's name pays a whole bunch of homage to country culture. An earlier Instagram post flaunting Broncs' hospital layette would certainly seem to support the theory.

Like pretty much every mom who hits 35 weeks and can't stop glancing wearily at the calendar, McKee made no secret that she was more than ready for little Broncs to make an appearance. We've definitely all been there. Since Broncs was a full 10 pounds at birth, it's not hard to sympathize with McKee's impatience.

She must be relieved to finally be able to hold her son, who was delivered via C-section, in her arms, especially since she's been fairly open about the risks of pregnancy while managing Type I diabetes and has said that her body "could never handle another."

We wish the new family nothing but good things as they ease into the transition between a family of four and a family of five, and of course, we want to wish good luck to the new parents who are officially outnumbered!
