Congratulations to Josh Duggar and Anna Duggar.
The 19 Kids and Counting star, 29, and his wife, 28, welcomed their fifth child — son Mason Garrett — on Tuesday (September 12), they announced on their family blog.
The newborn weighed in at 9 lbs., 1 oz. and is 22 in. long.
“We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well. 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 much more than we could ever express. We pray God blesses each of you with an abundance of the kindness you’ve shown us,” read the announcement.
Mason joins sibs Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2.
In March, Josh and Anna announced their fifth pregnancy.
“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 statement said.
“We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time,” the post continued.
“As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, 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!” Josh and Anna signed the statement.
Josh has been keeping a low profile since checked into a faith-based rehab facility in August 2015 following a series of scandals, being unfaithful to his wife, and sexually assaulting five underage girls — two of whom were his sisters Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar.
