Ever since I became a mom, I’ve had a whole new appreciation for everything you did as a mother! Words can’t express how grateful I am for you! Derick and I couldn’t ask for a better ‘Mamaw’ for our little kiddos. We all love you dearly.” Adorbs!
The reality star mama just recently became a grandma — for the ninth time! Her son, Josh Duggar and his wife Anna are now parents of five little ones after welcoming a baby boy named Mason Garrett Duggar. The 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.”
