Joseph Duggar & Kendra Caldwell Finally Answer Questions About Difficult Delivery of First Baby

by at .

It's been less than one month since Kendra Caldwell welcomed her first child, but as is customary in the Duggar clan, she's already been extremely forthcoming about all the joys and challenges of new motherhood.

While most reality stars prefer to keep things under wraps until such time as they can cash in on a TV special about the delivery, Kendra and husband Joseph Duggar have already shared most of the important facts about their new addition.

We know that Kendra and Joseph's baby boy is named Garrett, and the young newlyweds were clearly eager to share photos of their bundle of joy.

But while they've been happy to keep fans up to date on Garrett's development, Kendra and Joseph have chosen to keep certain details about his birth under wraps.

Until now.

TLC announced this week that Joe, Kendra and baby Garrett will star in their own half-hour special that's set to air on Friday, July 6.

While Counting On won't officially return until later this summer, it seems the Duggars didn't want to wait that long to address questions about Kendra's allegedly difficult delivery.

Within hours of when little Garrett entered the world, it was rumored that Kendra had given birth in a hospital.

This was an unexpected development, as Duggar women generally give birth at home, and Kendra had already announced her intention to do exactly that.

Rumors about unexpected complications began to make their way across the social media landscape, and Kendra and Joseph were understandably reluctant to talk about exactly what went down in the delivery room.

Now, it seems they've decided to let footage of the delivery speak for itself.

And TLC has already answered some pressing fan questions in a press release about the special.

“In the first glimpse, Joseph and Kendra Duggar are ready to welcome their baby. With 10 days to go until her due date, Kendra goes into labor and heads to the hospital,” the description reads. 

“Only a few hours later, she gives birth to their baby boy, Garrett David Duggar.”

So it seems that Kendra was hoping to give birth at home but called an audible when she started having contractions well ahead of schedule.

It's not the first time a Duggar woman has made such a last minute change in plans, as both Jill and Joy-Anna Duggar gave birth in hospitals after experiencing unforeseen complications.

The important thing is, Kendra and Garrett are both happy and healthy -- and ready for the spotlight.
