Welcome to the world, Garrett David! Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell gave birth to their first child on June 8, and now they're introducing him to fans. The sweet couple — who tied the knot in September 2017 — shared a video via TLC and couldn't help but gush about their son.
"It's definitely super thrilling to be parents of our sweet little guy," Kendra gushed about parenthood, "and I think it's kind of surreal right now. We're super excited just to get to do this journey together." Joseph added, "The most exciting thing for me about having a boy is, as he gets older, going fishing with him and just everything that every dad thinks of, I think. It's great to have a boy."
The duo also revealed the meaning behind his name. Joseph said that not only is "Garrett" his middle name, but it was also the name of his grandpa. Unfortunately, he didn't elaborate on "David," but considering Joe has a brother named "John David," we assume it runs in the fam, too!
Recently, fans speculated that 19-year-old Kendra gave birth at a hospital — something the conservative family is largely against. Several eagle-eyed fans noticed that both parents were wearing hospital bracelets in the photo following his arrival, which meant there could've been a chance she didn't give birth at home.
"Hopefully it was a planned hospital birth, and not another home birth gone wrong. Kendra looks great, and the baby is adorable," one person wrote on reddit. Another said, "Joe has always seemed like a nice and reasonable guy. I wouldn't be surprised if they had planned on a hospital birth all along because he wanted Kendra and the baby to be safe, especially after his sisters' disasters."
Traditionally, the Duggars deliver their children in the home with the help of a midwife — only making a trip to the hospital in emergency situations. Recently, however, they've had to call in some medical professionals. Joy-Anna Duggar, who gave birth to son Gideon in February, was rushed to the hospital after realizing he was breech.
Well, we're certainly glad both babies are happy and healthy! Not to mention, they just had the cutest lil' photo op.
