“We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet second son,” they told People. “He was born at 4:26 a.m. this morning, weighing 8 pounds, 11 ounces, and measuring 21 3/4 inches long. Mom and baby are both doing well. We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four! Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!”

The happy couple wed in 2014 and announced in April 2015 that she was pregnant with their first child. They welcomed their son, Spurgeon, in November of that year and she was pregnant again by August 2016.

Ben and Jessa have also been open in the past about their intentions to adopt.

“It’s something we are constantly praying about,” she previously told Celebrate Arkansas.

This is definitely an exciting time for the Duggars, as Jill Duggar is also expecting her second child with Derick Dillard — another baby boy. Their sister Jinger Duggar married the love of her life, Jeremy Vuolo in November 2016 — and her family doesn’t think it will be long until she comes out with a pregnancy announcement of her own.
