The Duggar marriages and births continue to increase in number week by week! Just four days after Joseph Duggar married Kendra Caldwell, Anna Duggar gave birth to her fifth child with husband Josh Duggar.
Mason Garrett Duggar was born earlier today (September 12) and according to the Duggar family announcement, he weighed 9 lbs, 1 oz and measured 22 inches long. “We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar,” reads the family’s statement. “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.”
Here is a zoomed-in photo of Mason from “The Duggars” Instagram:
UPDATE – The Duggar Family Instagram account deleted their photo of Mason, but Joy uploaded another one:
The statement goes on to express appreciation for those sending positive vibes. “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.”
Just as Josh’s mom and dad Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar chose a letter of the alphabet (“J”) and stuck with it with all of their children’s names, Josh and Anna have done the same with the letter “M.” Mason joins older siblings Mackynzie (7 years old), Michael (6), Marcus (4) and Meredith (2).
While the individual social media accounts of the Duggar family members usually light up with congratulatory messages after any birth or wedding, so far all is silent about Mason except for the official pages representing the entire family linking to the announcement.
