Mackenzie McKee is giving Josh kudos for his support following the emotional "Teen Mom OG" finale where they sat down with their kids to reveal grandma only had 6 months to live.

The tearjerking moment aired on Monday showing the now-estranged couple explaining death to their three children -- Gannon, 7, Jaxie Taylor, 5, and Broncs Weston, 3.

Following the heartbreaking episode, McKee took to Twitter and gave Josh credit for helping her get through "one of the hardest days."

Responding to fans, who were singing her praises for how she revealed the news to kids, she responded, "I couldn't have had that conversation without Josh."

In the episode the now-separated couple attempted to explain that grandma isn’t going to get better.

While the other kids were quiet when they revealed the news, Gannon asked his parents what if they can’t “fix” grandma. Mackenzie and Josh couldn’t bare telling their kids the truth, so instead they answered that she will go to sleep and never wake up.

The raw moment aired just days after Mackenzie revealed she and Josh are putting a pin in their marriage.

“I would like to say, that due to stress, me needing to stay focused, the media, etc. I am deciding my marriage needs a break,” she shared on Twitter.

"My heart breaks for my kids. But as of right now, this is what’s best. Thank you,” she ended her message.

The season finale also showed the moment Mackenzie and her sister found out the news.

Sitting down with their mom, Angie Douthit, she explained that her cancer had spread to numerous parts of her body.

When Mackenzie asked if she had a timeline, Angie revealed doctors said "6 months would be really pushing it."

Angie stated the hardest part would be "knowing my grandkids won't remember me," which Mackenzie reiterated on twitter last night will never happen.

"We will all make sure our kids remember who my mom is no matter what happens," she wrote.
