Teen Mom alum Mackenzie McKee is celebrating her dad's birthday this week, just days after her mom's tragic death. On Tuesday, it was announced that McKee's mother, Angie Douthit, passed away after a battle with cancer. Today, McKee took to Instagram to share some photos of her parents together, in honor of her father's birthday. In the post caption, McKee wrote, "Happy birthday Daddy. Thank you for showing the world and us kids what true, unconditional, and Christ-like love looks like. I’ve never seen anyone love as hard as you loved my [Angie Douthit] . I don’t understand any of this and never will. You are so loved and we are here to take care of you."

Earlier this week, McKee shared the sad news about her mother in an Instagram post, and also took time to memorialize the late matriarch. "Momma @angiedouthit has crossed the finish line. She did not lose the battle, she won. She is healed and running in heaven in eternity," McKee wrote.
"Idk anyone who left earth with such an impact," she continued. "Your entire life you never waisted a chance to let the world know Gods love. When we would try to brag on what an amazing person you are you would respond with 'it’s not me, it’s God.'"
