The reality star gave birth last Monday, but little Broncs has since been in the NICU following various health complications. She returned to Instagram Sunday, and shared a message to followers.

In a photo of her, husband Josh McKee and baby Broncs, the star began, "On Monday, I was told to get the the hospital ASAP and not knowing anything I was prepped for surgery, taken back, and the c-section was done in 45 minutes after arriving."

"At 6:00 pm I had Broncs Weston McKee who was 20 inches and 10 pounds 1 ounce born at 36 weeks," she continued. "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."

Amid the infants health complications, which include crowded lungs and a blood infection, Mackenzie insisted little Broncs is a fighter, and thanked followers for their immeasurable support.
