by at .

Mackenzie McKee has made it official.

No, she will not be getting back together with her husband of six years.

Because, yes, she has filed for divorce from Josh, the father of her three children.

The reality TV star announced the news herself on Monday, jumping on Instagram with a photo of her dogs -- and telling one fan in the Comments section that her weight loss was due to “divorce stress."

As far as we know, this is the first time Mackenzie has dropped the "D" word in regard to her and Josh.

When the Teen Mom star confirmed that her marriage was in trouble about two months ago, she simply said she and Josh were separating.

"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," Mackenzie Tweeted on Friday, August 16, adding in this message:

"My heart breaks for my kids. But as of right now, this is what’s best. Thank you."

The couple got married in August of 2013 and share three kids -- Gannon, 7, Jamie, 5, and Broncs, 3.

But they've been experiencing some difficult times for awhile, as highlighted this summer on the season premiere of Teen Mom OG.

The episode focused on rumors that Josh had cheated on Mackenzie while out on the road for a rodeo.

He denied this allegation, but Mackenzie later watched the development play out on air and referred to Josh as a horrible person after actually watching his actions on MTV.

“Turns out, Josh is not a good man whatsoever,” the Teen Mom OG told Us Weekly in late August. “Watching the show and catching him in lies, seeing how independent he is, I realize I deserve better.”

Mackenzie went on to slam Josh to this tabloid as follows:

“I have fought for this marriage for many years, and lately, I’ve really opened my eyes to what a horrible person he is."

It doesn't get much more straightforward than that -- except that McKee has sort of backed off these comments in the days since.

She has told fans that she and Josh actually still live together, adding:

“Me and Josh do love one another, that will never change. God will guide me where I belong and I’m trusting in him right now and focusing on being there for my mom."

Are they actually getting along these days?

It does sound that way.

"Me and Josh are friends and are on good terms,” she said in an interview The Ashley's Reality Roundup.

“I’m still taking this time for myself. I’m doing counseling, just so an outside eye looking in can give me guidance. I just had so much piling up all at once, I just need time and structure."

The MTV personality has since confessed that she and Josh are both cheaters -- so, hey, at least they have that in common!

In all seriousness, though, we do wish Mackenzie and Josh the best moving forward.
