The Duggar family just got a little bit bigger. Joseph and Kendra Duggar welcomed daughter Addison Renee on Saturday, November 2. It is the second child for the Counting On couple, who also have a 17-month-old son named Garrett.
Addison was born at 5:33 a.m. She weighed 7 lbs., 12 oz. and was 20½ inches long.
“Addison Renee has made us a family of four and we are already so in love with her! She made a quick arrival in the early hours of the morning and has already melted our hearts. We know Garrett is going to be a great big brother,” Joe and Kendra wrote on their website.
“Children are each a special gift from God and we are so happy our newest blessing is here … Thankful that both mom and baby are doing well!” they added.
The Duggar family is excited about the new arrival
After Joe and Kendra announced Addison’s arrival, congratulations poured in on Instagram from other members of the Duggar family.
“Yay! She’s such a doll! Congrats guys!” wrote Joe’s sister Jill Duggar, who also shared the happy news on her own social media.
“Addison is so beautiful! Congratulations @littleduggarfamily,” commented sister-in-law Anna Duggar, who is currently pregnant with her sixth child with Josh Duggar.
When is the next Duggar baby due?
Kendra is the third Duggar woman to give birth in recent months. Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed their third child, a daughter named Ivy Jane, in May. And cousin Amy Duggar King gave birth to her first child, a boy named Dillon, on October 10.
Three other Duggars are currently pregnant: Anna Duggar, Abbie Duggar, and Lauren Duggar. In June, Anna revealed in which order the pregnant Duggars would have their kids.
“Kendra, Joy, Lauren and I’m due last,” she wrote on Instagram in response to a fan who was speculating about due dates. (At the time, Joy-Anna Duggar was pregnant with her second child with Austin Forsyth, but in early July she had a miscarriage at 20 weeks.)
Based on the information provided by Anna, Lauren should be the next Duggar to give birth, probably sometime in the next few weeks. According to their Amazon baby registry, her first child is set to arrive on November 17.
Anna Duggar should be the next to welcome another baby. Though she hasn’t revealed her exact due date, speculation is that she is due in late November.
Abbie and John David Duggar’s first baby, a girl, is due in January 2020, the couple announced on Instagram. The first-time mom has reportedly had a tough pregnancy, with John David recently revealing that she had been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a type of severe nausea and vomiting that can sometimes affect pregnant women. Abbie’s case was so severe that she had to be hospitalized, her husband said in an interview with Us Weekly.
“She got diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, and she was hospitalized a couple times,” he said. “We made multiple visits to the ER for dehydration. … She couldn’t eat, pretty much, or drink, or anything. So she was actually on IVs and had IVs at home. So that was a pretty scary time.”
Fortunately, Abbie appears to be doing better now. The couple recently traveled to San Francisco and also celebrated their first wedding anniversary.
