Yesterday, we reported that Jessa Duggar has given birth to her second baby boy.

This morning, the reality star is asking fans to help her welcome her bundle of joy by posting the first photo of the tyke thus far known only as Baby Seewald #2.

Jessa posted the photo below to her Instagram page.

She captioned the pic:

"#BabySeewald2 is here and we couldn’t be more in love!"

Jessa went into greater detail on her and Ben Seewald’s official blog, writing:

"We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet second son."

"He was born at 4:26 am this morning, weighing 8 lbs and 11 ounces and measuring 21 3/4 inches long."

"Mom and baby are both doing well."

"We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four!"

"Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!"

In an earlier statement, Jessa and Ben gushed about their new addition and revealed that their 1-year-old son, Spurgeon, is thrilled to be playing the role of big brother:

“2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already,” the couple said.

“And we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role.”

As is their custom, the Seewalds didn’t reveal that they were having a boy or girl until after Jessa had given birth.

Many fans and several Duggars tried to guess the gender of the baby and they overwhelmingly predicted a girl.

So much for old wives tales about the size and position of a pregnant woman’s stomach giving away the gender.

As for the little fella’s name, Jessa and Ben aren’t talking (if they even know something to potentially talk about).

That’s another Seewald tradition, and they didn’t reveal Spurgeon’s name until several weeks after he was born.

In fact, they claim they didn’t choose a name for Lil Spurge until after they had met him and gotten to know him.

So it’s possible that they’ve followed suit and that Baby Seewald #2 doesn’t have an appropriate moniker yet.

Naturally, fans have been making predictions online, but we doubt anyone will get it right for obvious reasons.

Need we remind you that we are talking about a young couple who recently named their first child Spurgeon?

Exactly. Good luck predicting.

As always, you can watch Counting On online to see Jessa and Ben Seewald cope with the many pressures of parenthood.

Raising two little ones is never easy, although it could be a lot worse still. We imagine at some point, Ben will get a real job.

Just kidding, Benny!
