The Duggar family has a new member. Jessa Duggar Seewald and hubby Ben Seewald welcomed a baby boy on Thursday.

The 19 Kids and Counting family took to Facebook to announce the blessed arrival.

Yesterday Jessa gave birth to a baby boy. He is 9 lbs 11 ounces and 21 1/4 inches long. Both Jessa and the baby are doing well. They’ve posted some precious first pictures on their website here:

Ben and Jessa had a home birth. Several members of the Duggar family were on hand to welcome their newest member, as was Ben Seewald's mom.

Baby Seewald was due on Sunday, but in the tradition of several new Duggar family members of late, he arrived when he was good and ready. Sunday was Ben and Jessa's first wedding anniversary.

Jessa Duggar Seewald held out hope that their baby might arrive on her 23rd birthday, which was Wednesday. Apparently Baby Seewald wanted his very own day to shine, rather than sharing a celebration with his mom and dad.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are now the grandparents of six. Josh and Anna Duggar have four children and Jill and Derick Dillard have one.

Becoming a part of the Duggar family will no doubt mean lots of attention and cuddles for Baby Seewald, and hopefully some much needed rest for Jessa Duggar Seewald.

Congratulations are no doubt headed the Duggar family's way on the birth of this new baby boy.
