And baby makes seven! Josh and Anna Duggar are now parents of five little ones after welcoming a baby boy named Mason Garrett Duggar. The reality TV family revealed that he was born today, Sept. 12, measuring in at 22 inches long, and weighing in at 9 pounds, 1 ounce.
“We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well,” the statement on the family’s website read. “He arrived today without complication and we already adore him. The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing. We want to thank everyone for your prayers, kind words, and well wishes. We appreciate it more much than we could ever express. We pray God blesses each of you with an abundance of the kindness you’ve shown us.”
Little Mason joins big sisters Mackynzie, 7, and Meredith, 2, and big brothers Michael, 6, and Marcus, 4. Anna and Josh revealed they were expecting another little bundle of joy in March — after years out of the spotlight following Josh’s stint in rehab, where he was treated for sex and porn addiction.
“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family. Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust,” the two said at the time. “We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time. As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lies, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year. Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!”
Well, if this is any indication, it looks like we’ll never be done counting… Congrats to the entire Duggar family!
