Mackenzie McKee: Secrets and Scandals of the Newest Teen Mom Star

by at .  Updated at .

It's now official: Farrah Abraham is out of Teen Mom OG.

And Mackenzie McKee, formerly of Teen Mom 3, is in.

Rumors that McKee will be taking over for Abraham as a series regular began circulating not long after Abraham got fired by MTV.

While the reasons for her dismissal are subject to debate, what we can say for certain is that her replacement has quite a history too.

The new OG cast member isn't all that new ... nor has the Oklahoma native's life been without its share of twists, turns and tumult.

Scroll down to get to know the real Mackenzie McKee.

1. Where Was She Born?

Where Was She Born?
Born Mackenzie Taylor Douthit, she is a native of Miami ... but not that Miami! She was born in Miami, Oklahoma.

2. When Was She Born?

When Was She Born?
On October 17, 1994. This makes her a Libra, in case you were wondering. This also makes her 23 years old, which seems crazy in that she's been around for 6-7 years. Guess that's what happens when you're 16 & Pregnant.

3. What Are Her Interests?

What Are Her Interests?
After graduating from high school, where she was a member of the cheerleading team, McKee attended cosmetology school and later worked in a salon ... while also working on a fitness career. Mackenzie is the most openly religious of all the Teen Mom stars, though she is also the only one of her siblings to not wait until marriage to have sex (obviously).

4. Is She Still Into Fitness?

Is She Still Into Fitness?
Oh yes. Scroll through her Instagram feed and you'll see plenty of photos such as the one above. In fact, fitness has been an integral part of the brand she built - and arguably landed her back on MTV.

5. Where Have You Seen Her Before?

Where Have You Seen Her Before?
McKee was a cast member on 16 & Pregnant and on Teen Mom 3. She first appeared on MTV on the Season 4 premiere of the former series and was prominently featured on the latter's first and only season.

6. Is She Married?

Is She Married?
Yes. And it's been a fairly stable relationship, save for a cheating scandal back when she and her high school sweetheart Josh McKee were engaged. She and her now-husband started dating in February of 2010 and got married in 2013. "Josh was whispering in my ear how much he loved me," Mackenzie told Us Weekly of the ceremony.
