“Maryella Hope Duggar was born at 9:12 a.m., weighing 8 pounds and 2 ounces, and measuring 20 1/2 inches,” the new parents revealed to UsWeekly about their bundle of joy.
“On Thanksgiving eve our hearts are overflowing with joy and gratefulness for the arrival of our sixth child! Anna had a fast labor and delivery without complications,” the pair added. “We are so thankful for a beautiful, healthy baby girl!”
Anna and Josh, 31, revealed they were expecting another baby on April 26. In Touch confirmed the news after the couple released a statement to the outlet. “We couldn’t be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall,” the couple told the outlet at the time. “We continually stand amazed by God’s love, redemption, grace and blessings in our lives. Our entire little family is ecstatic!”
They also shared the news with their Instagram followers on the same day. The couple posted a video of them telling their five other kids the news, and wrote, “We are so excited to announce that we are expecting a new little one! As we watch our children grow and thrive — we look forward to baby six joining us this fall! #littleduggars.”
Later, Anna and Josh revealed the sex of their newest addition. They shared a video on Instagram on June 20 and wrote, “This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it’s always so exciting! Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter/sister this fall!”
Since then, the couple has celebrated being married for 11 years and rejoiced in welcoming all those kids, but Anna’s anniversary message to her husband wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. She acknowledged some of the rougher parts of their marriage, and fans think she might have been alluding to her husband’s alleged cheating from 2015.
“11 years ago, before God, our family and friends we said, ‘I do!’ — and, my, how the past 11 years have flown by! ♥️” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo from her wedding to her spouse. “The joys we’ve experienced together have far surpassed the shadows of sorrow we’ve walked through. Through it all, God’s kindness and grace has sustained us. I am thankful for the seven children He has given us together (five here/one in heaven/one due in Nov)! 💕”
Now, their newest addition is here to walk through life with the #littleduggars family, too.
