Anna Duggar and husband Josh Duggar have welcomed baby Meredith Grace into their world this weekend. Anna Duggar gave birth to the family's fourth child and second daughter on Sunday.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar--with help from Josh and Anna Duggar's son Marcus--shared the exciting news via the Duggar Family's website just a short time ago.

Anna Duggar was overdue with this child. In an earlier blog post, Michelle Duggar noted that Anna had always gone early with her three previous babies--McKenzie, Michael, and Marcus.

The birth of Josh and Anna Duggar's new baby makes five grandchildren for Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. Jim Bob celebrated his 50th birthday this weekend. What a great birthday gift a granddaughter makes.

Little Meredith Grace Duggar's dad, Josh Duggar, has made news in recent months since word of a sexual molestation scandal that took place when he was a teen, aired in the media. It is the reason behind the family losing their reality show. TLC announced last week they are canceling 19 Kids and Counting.

Just last week Anna Duggar and Jessa Duggar Seewald compared the sizes of their growing bellies. Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are expecting their first child in November.

It's been a week of highs and lows for the Duggar family. Between the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting, word that Derick and Jill Dillard are hard at work as missionaries in Central America, Jim Bob Duggar's 50th birthday, and now word that Anna Duggar has given birth--it's plain to see there is never a dull moment for the Duggars.

Hopefully someone will post a photo of Josh and Anna Duggar's new baby, Meredith Grace, soon.
