The newest Duggar has arrived.
Jessa Duggar Seewald and husband Ben have welcomed a brand-new bundle of joy into their family — a boy!
“We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet, second son,” the couple told People magazine. “He was born at 4:26 a.m. this morning, weighing 8 lbs. and 11 oz., and measuring 21 3/4 in. long.”
“Mom and baby are both doing well,” they continued. “We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four! Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!”
An earlier statement from the couple announced, “We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother!’ We are so thankful that God is adding to our family…2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already, and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role.”
“Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing, and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!).”
Jessa’s older sister, Jill Dillard, is also expecting her second child with husband Derick, who previously shared the exciting news with People as well. “Children really are a wonderful blessing from God. Having Israel has been such a delight to us that we know a second sweet baby will only continue to add joy to our family. We are thankful to God for this sweet child and we cannot wait to see her or him face to face!”
