Jessa Seewald was reportedly rushed to the hospital following a home birth on Thursday night. Sources tell Entertainment Tonight that Jessa Seewald experienced heavy bleeding following the delivery of her baby boy, and mom Michelle Duggar called 911.

Despite the minor complication, both mom and Baby Seewald are doing just fine.

Ben Seewald couldn't wait to share a photo of their little family on Friday. In addition to posting it on the website he shares with Jessa, he also posted it on the Facebook site for Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard's upcoming TLC show, Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

Baby Seewald weighed in at a very healthy nine pounds and 11 ounces. Jessa Seewald had mentioned just days ahead of his birth that she expected their baby would be big. She weighed nine pounds and 15 ounces at birth.

"I'd say it's very possible we could have a chubby little baby!" she joked last week.

Fans are no doubt excited to learn what Ben and Jessa Seewald name their bundle of joy. Will they choose a biblical name like Derick and Jill Dillard? They named their baby boy Isaiah.

The entire Duggar family is no doubt thrilled that Baby Seewald has joined the former 19 Kids and Counting gang, and they're surely grateful that despite the scare following the birth, that both the baby and Jessa Seewald are okay.
