Jessa Duggar Seewald and hubby Ben Seewald watched her due date come and go on Sunday, which was also the couple's first wedding anniversary. On Wednesday, Jessa Duggar turned 23, but no baby arrived as an extra special birthday gift.

It seems Baby Seewald was awaiting his own date and time to make his entrance into the world. Perhaps he didn't want to share his mom and dad's anniversary or his mom's birthday.

The arrival of Jessa Duggar's baby marks the sixth grandchild for 19 Kids and Counting patriarch and matriarch Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Eldest son Josh Duggar has four children with his wife Anna Duggar--the one he admitted to cheating on this past summer. Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick have one child, a son named Israel.

Fans are now awaiting word on what the 19 Kids and Counting family will name their new blessing. Ben and Jessa referred to their unborn baby as "Quincy," having first called him "Q." Ben and Jessa knew they were having a boy, but didn't share that information with their fans.

The entire 19 Kids and Counting family is no doubt rejoicing today following the arrival of a new member yesterday.

Hopefully Jessa Duggar Seewald will post pictures of her new bundle of joy soon.
