And baby makes 7! Josh Duggar and his wife, Anna, have finally welcomed their fifth child together, a baby boy named Mason.
“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.”
The couple’s baby boy is just two months younger than his cousin Samuel, Derick and Jill Dillard’s second son.
Mason is expected to join his older siblings, Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2, in the family’s Arkansas home.
The former 19 Kids and Counting stars announced Anna’s pregnancy in a statement back in March, less than two years after Josh’s molestation and Ashley Madison scandals came to light.
"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," Josh and Anna wrote at the time "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."
"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,” they continued. "Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!"
Fans were shocked when the couple announced that they were expecting another child together, especially after everything Josh put Anna through in 2015.
That summer, a police report accusing Josh of molesting several of his younger sisters as a teenager was published in In Touch.
Shortly after that bombshell was dropped, Josh was caught up in the infamous Ashley Madison hack, when it was discovered that he had cheated on Anna while she was pregnant.
Somehow, the couple prevailed and went on to give their marriage another shot.
Congrats to the happy parents!
