Josh and Anna Duggar welcomed their second child yesterday. Josh is the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar who have 19 Kids and Counting.
Anna had the baby four days earlier than expected. She and Josh are not ready to release the name publicly yet, but are staying with the "M" theme.
Weighing in at a healthy 8 lbs., 5 oz., the unnamed male youngster (Matthew would be our personal choice) joins big sister MacKynzie, 20 months.
The newborn, who arrived in the family's Tontitown, Ark., home, certainly has enough doting relatives, with 18 aunts and uncles as well as his sis.
One of his closest-in-age playmates is Michelle's youngest, Josie, who was born very premature in late 2009, but is now a healthy 17-month-old.
"I think of Josie being born at only 25 weeks," Josh told People, "It makes us think about how precious life is and what a blessing each child is."
Congratulations to the happy, growing family!
