It’s official! Teen Mom stars Josh and Mackenzie McKee have gotten back together after a brief separation following cheating allegations.
Earlier this week, Mackenzie shared with her Instagram followers that Josh had re-proposed to her on her 25th birthday, confirming the two are giving things another try. Her (formerly) estranged husband set up an elaborate scavenger hunt that led up to the romantic proposal.
“This man… I will never forget my 25th birthday. 6 hours of opening up clues and going on a scavenger hunt,” the mom-of-three captioned the photo. “Even putting on a dress you picked out. I still can’t believe the work God has done. My ring is beautiful and I choose you over and over. Here’s to new beginnings in Christ.” She added the hashtag #youdonthavetounderstandourlovestory.
The former 16 and Pregnant alum announced in August that she and her husband were taking some time apart. “I would like to say, that due to stress, me needing to stay focused, the media, etc. I am deciding my marriage needs a break,” she wrote via Twitter at the time. “My heart breaks for my kids. But as of right now, this is what’s best. Thank you.”
The surprising news came after two mystery women gave an interview to OK! Magazine in which they claimed they witnessed Josh cheat on his fitness guru wife. The ladies said they saw Josh arrive at a bar with a male friend before beginning to flirt with a blonde.
“Within a matter of minutes, he started talking with a girl with long blonde hair,” the woman explained. “They started making out and kept on kissing. Like, couldn’t keep their hands off each other. They left the bar hand in hand.”
After the story was published, however, Mackenzie spoke to The Ashley in which she denied anything had gone on. She also claimed to have spoken to the women making the serious claims. “I know the two girls who called in,” she told the publication. “I have already been through all of this, talked to everyone there along with their husbands.” She continued, “Tell the two girls nice try! I had already gotten to the bottom of this months ago. This is insane.”
Nonetheless, it was only a few days later that she announced hers and Josh’s separation news over social media. Josh and Mackenzie were originally high school sweethearts and welcomed their eldest son, Gannon, when they were teenagers. They since welcome two more kids, daughter Jaxie and son Broncs.
We’re glad these long-time lovebirds have found their way back together!
