Meet Mason Garrett Duggar!
The reality star, 29, and his wife, 28, welcomed their fifth child on Sept. 12. The newborn weighed in at 9 lbs., 1 oz. and measured 22 in.
Mason joined sibs Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2.
“Anna gave birth at her home in Northwest Arkansas with a midwife,” the Duggar family’s rep tells the mag. “Her water broke Monday morning early and she labored all day before having Mason at 1:22 a.m. Tuesday. Both her mom and Mrs. [Michelle] Duggar are there now helping out. (Wednesday is Mrs. Duggar’s birthday.)”
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.
