MACKENZIE McKee celebrated her son’s big milestone over the weekend.
Yet fans couldn’t help but note that the boy’s father was nowhere to be seen.
Mackenzie posted a series of photos on her Instagram showing her 11-year-old son Gannon had been promoted from elementary school to middle school.
At a special ceremony, the proud teen mom put her arm around her son, who was almost her height.
The 28-year-old captioned her snaps with the words: “Just like that. I have a middle school student. I love you, Gannon boy.”
Gannon showed his special promotion certificate on his last day of fifth year and smiled.
The pair posed for photos with friends while even Mackenzie’s new husband, Khesanio Hall, was there for the big moment.
However, Gannon’s biological father – and Mackenzie’s ex – was missing from the field.
Josh McKee is the Teen Mom’s ex-husband and father to her two sons and daughters – Gannon, Broncs and Jaxie.
“Fuck, Josh didn’t even show up?” asked a concerned fan.

Mackenzie addressed the absence personally, even giving her ex a small sarcastic slap.
“He wasn’t here,” she admitted. “I probably didn’t even know he graduated. But I tell him everything that happens without an answer, just to keep doing what’s right.”
MCKEE is missing
Mackenzie has previously revealed that she has little to no communication with Josh and often has no idea where he might be.
In March, during a question and answer session on Instagram, a fan asked, “Do you share custody with Josh?”
Her response was startling: “I can’t even reach him,” she replied with a shrug emoji, “but I wish him the best.”
The couple started dating in 2009 and married in 2013.
Almost a decade later, Mackenzie confirmed that she was close to divorcing Josh.
In the same question-and-answer session, the MTV star made a heartbreaking admission that her breakup with Josh probably saved her life.
One follower asked, “When in your last relationship did you really realize it was over?” before adding that the poster also had “issues.”
Mackenzie held nothing back, saying: “If this change happens, it’s over! My business collapsed because I didn’t value myself anymore.”
“I’ve been told every day of my life that I’m ugly and not good. So how could I wake up and have the strength to live at all?”
She ended her statement with, “I didn’t want to go, I HAD to or I would die.”
Fans on Reddit showed great support for the mother of three after her confession.
One said: “Yes. I think it. I remember when she said she wanted to die and he yelled at her to go ahead and ran away. He’s a real garbage man.”
Another said: “He’s a total jerk who would demean her in that way. He knows her insecurities better than anyone. I don’t like her as a person but I have no doubt that she was abused.”
A third agreed: “If someone finds a button to press and they’re angry, they press it as many times as possible. She is believable to me.”
After separating from Josh, she entered a new relationship and introduced her new husband in December.
She first touted her new relationship with a cryptic selfie on Twitter of herself snuggling up with a mystery man.
The TV personality smiled brightly while wrapped in a blanket with her unidentified boyfriend and captioned the post with a heart emoji.
The man reappeared on her Instagram Story in early January, jumping out of a pantry dancing, a packet of cookies in hand.
A few weeks later, the young mother posted a tweet about their relationship and deleted it.
She tweeted: “It’s funny how people in my relationship warn me about things he might do. Those things are all my ex-husband did.”
“All because of his outward appearance. But nobody warned me about it when I was dating a fellow white man.”
