Looks like teen pregnancy runs in Mackenzie Douthit's family! This Southern belle popped out her first child at the tender age of 16, and we're slightly surprised that her mom and dad were so shocked. After all, they were teen parents themselves!
Mackenzie recently took it to Instagram to pen an elaborate (and emotional — girlfriend is pregnant, after all) birthday message to her older sister, Whitney, wherein she complimented her parents for raising them so well.
"Many people look at a pregnant teenager and think that their child will grow up and become nothing or be messed up all their life," Mackenzie mused. "This beautiful womens [Whitney's] mom and dad had her as teenagers and a lot of people judged them but they got married, had three more kids and raised them all in church."
Sound familiar? Mr. and Mrs. Douthit's love story is basically identical to Mackenzie and her husband Josh's! They also met as teenagers and were judged by their peers, only to end up getting married and popping out even more babies!
If all goes according to plan, Josh and Mackenzie's son, Gannon, will carry on the family tradition and welcome his own love child to the world in about 15 years or so. Unless he watches Teen Mom, in which case he'll probably end up a celibate monk.
