On Tuesday, Josh and Anna Duggar shared exciting news on their website. The couple just gave birth to their fifth child.
Their newborn son, Mason Garett Duggar, was born on 9/12/17. The growing Duggar family now has five children, with Mason’s siblings being Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2.
The announcement said, “Mason Garrett Duggar has arrived!!! 9 lbs 1 oz, 22" long, born 9/12/17. 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," the post continued. "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."
Despite the extreme controversy and scandal that Josh has been attached to, the Duggars are making an effort to move forward and focus on their growing family. According to E News, the couple addressed some of the controversies when they announced their pregnancy in March.
"For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives as a family," they said. “Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust.”
“We've learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time,” the statement 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!"
Now, the time has come that the couple is able to "see and kiss" their new son, Mason Garett.
Please join us in congratulating the couple on their new baby, and praying for the continued restoration in their family. In other breaking news, Sadie Robertson just admitted the one thing that she has to say to President Trump.
