Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee wants to educate us about a problem of hers through song.
Unlike some of the other Teen Mom stars using their fame for…other things… Mackenzie (known as Mackenzie Douthit from her original appearance on MTV’s fourth season of 16 and Pregnant) is using her reputation for good. And while the third installment of MTV’s Teen Mom was canceled after just one season, that wasn’t the end of Mackenzie’s time in the spotlight.
Mackenzie was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 11, but the momma of two is dedicated to her healthy and fit lifestyle that she posts about on social media pretty much every day—she even mentions on her Twitter that she is training to be a fitness model!
The blonde beauty posted a fresh-face selfie on her Twitter feed on June 1 with the caption: “Selfie because excited stuff coming your way,” referring her song titled “The Sweetest Treat”.

The song’s goal is to educate people (especially children) about the disease, and to raise money for diabetes research. What’s more, 50 percent of all profits earned from this sweet song will go to help support diabetes research. Sources say the release date is set for later this month. Teen Moms making music? This really is the sweetest treat these fans could ask for!
