Counting On couple Kendra and Joe Duggar welcomed their first child together, son Garrett David, on June 8, and now the proud first-time parents are sharing the very first video of the newest lil Duggar!
“We are so happy to announce the birth of our first child,” Joe says at the beginning of the clip — included below. “His name is Garrett David Duggar. The first name Garrett is my middle name, and it’s also my grandpa’s first name.”
Mom Kendra then takes over. “It’s definitely super thrilling to be parents of our sweet little guy,” she says, “and I think it’s kind of surreal right now. And we’re super excited just to, um, to get to do this journey together.”
Joe then shares his thoughts on having a son. “The most exciting thing for me about having a boy is as it gets older, goin’ fishin’ with him. You know, just everything that every dad thinks of I think. It just — it’s great to have a boy.”
We once again hear from Kendra, who opens up about meeting Garret for the first time. “When we first got to see him and hold him, I know I started crying.” She glances at Joe and says: “I don’t know about you, but it was just an emotional moment. We’re definitely super thrilled and excited,” she concludes.
“Thank y’all so much for all your prayers, your support, and just encouragement that you guys give us,” Joe says. “We both appreciate it a lot.”
