16 and Pregnant’s Mackenzie Douthit and Her Baby Daddy Still Don’t Use Birth Control
Mackenzie Douthit's life changed for the better when she gave birth to baby Gannon, but she has plenty to worry about — her baby daddy, Josh, never gave up bull riding!
"I'm just, like, hoping he won't get hurt again," Mackenzie told Dr. Drew during 16 and Pregnant's reunion special. "But he's had how many concussions from bull riding? A lot."
Despite his dangerous habit, Josh cares about being a present dad and said, "I wanna be there for him, I don't want rodeoing to get in the way or anything, but I still wanna do it."
Unfortunately, Mackenzie and Josh can't live together because neither of them have jobs, and they're both fully dependent on their parents.
"He's waiting to get a job, and I've applied at 16 places and have been looking for a job for six months," Mackenzie explained.
Sigh, Josh better get his act together, because he and Mackenzie might get knocked up again at any moment. That's right, they're not using birth control!
Mackenzie says she "doesn't like it" and Josh is allergic to Latex, but as Dr. Drew says — it's called Animal Skin condoms, guys.
To make matters worse, Mackenzie's mom doesn't want her to go on birth control because it "encourages sex," but if Mackenzie does get pregnant again, it would be extremely dangerous for her type one diabetes. Sigh!
We have to agree with Dr. Drew on this one –– these kids need to start using protection ASAP!
