"Oh Monday, I was told to get to the hospital ASAP and not knowing anything I was prepped for surgery, takin back, and the c-section was done in 45 minutes after arriving," McKee posted to Instagram on Saturday, along with a pic of herself and husband Josh looking over their little one. "At 6:00 pm I had Broncs Weston McKee who was 20 inches and 10 pounds 1 ounce born at 36 weeks."

"He was rushed to NICU and I didn't hear a word about how he was for 5 hours. I had to wait four days to hold him so I haven't posted much," she explained.

"But Mr. Broncs man is a fighter and it's a miracle he is with us. We are making baby steps daily and so so in love with him," McKee concluded. "Thank you everyone who has been praying for us and sending us love."
