Josh Duggar announced just moments ago that Anna Duggar has given birth to the couple's fourth child. Meredith Grace Duggar was born on Sunday.

Mom Michelle Duggar actually beat Josh Duggar, sharing the news with the family's followers on The Duggar Family website.

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar recorded a short video clip to share their exciting news, marking the birth of their fifth grandchild. Marcus Duggar, one of Anna and Josh Duggar's sons, is part of their video.

Anna Duggar was overdue with baby Meredith. Michelle Duggar mentioned in a post just last weekend that Anna had "gone early" with their previous three children.

Josh Duggar shared his happy news (and in light of his sexual molestation scandal that resulted in TLC's cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting--he needs happy news) via Twitter. Check out the beautiful family photo he shared within his Tweet.

This is the second daughter for Anna and Josh Duggar. They are parents to daughter McKenzie, as well as sons Michael and Marcus.

Congratulations are likely en route to Anna and Josh Duggar, as well as huge sighs of relief for Anna Duggar. Having a baby in the summertime is hard enough. Being overdue makes everything worse.
