Back in June, Joe Duggar and Kendra Caldwell announced that they were expecting baby #2 to be a girl.
Well, the long wait is over!
Kendra and Joe have welcomed their newborn into the world!
Us Weekly reports that on Saturday, November 2, Kendra Caldwell gave birth to the newest Duggar grandchild.
They ushered the sweet little girl into the world at 5:33 AM.
The precious newborn is named Addison Renee.
At birth, she weighed 7 pounds and 12.5 ounces and measured 20.5 inches in length.
Joseph and Kendra released a joint statement to share the happy news.
"Addison Renee has made us a family of four," the couple gushed on Monday.
"And," they continued, "we are already so in love with her!"
"She made a quick arrival in the early hours of the morning," the couple noted, "and has already melted our hearts."
Joe and Kendra were sure to acknowledge that they weren't the only ones welcoming the little girl to the family.
"We know Garrett is going to be a great big brother," the couple affirmed.
In keeping with their brand, the couple expressed: "Children are each a special gift from God."
Their statement concluded: "And we are so happy our newest blessing is here."
Back in April, Joe and Kendra confirmed that they were expecting.
"We are ready to double the fun at our house!” the couple shared excitedly.
They expressed: “Being parents has already proven to be a greater joy than we had hoped or imagined."
"We love getting to parent together," Joe and Kendra added.
In the statement in April, Joe and Kendra continued: "And are loving every moment and milestone."
"We are very happy that our little family will welcome a new addition later this year," they announced.
"Children really are a blessing from God!" they proclaimed.
Now they have two blessings in their household. So cute!
Kendra gave birth to little Garrett just 17 months ago.
In June of 2018, the couple put out a statement about how thrilled they were to become first-time parents.
"No matter how many times we’ve experienced the joy of babies born in our families," their statement began.
The couple continued: "There’s nothing comparable to the joy in our hearts today!"
"Children truly are a gift from God," they said that time, too. "We are so thankful for his safe arrival and this new journey as parents."
Even as recently as October, Kendra and Joe predicted that adding a second baby would be easy.
"We’re kind of already in that napping, changing diapers groove with Garrett still, so I think it will be just adding another [to that]," Kendra guessed.
"We’ll both be busy, I guess," Kendra acknowledged. "All hands will be tied up taking care of little ones, but there are always challenges."
"[Our son] can’t do much himself, so he’s going to need a lot of help," she noted. "But we’re excited about this new chapter."
Fans are excited for the couple to discover that having two children is much harder than simply double the workload of one child.
The Duggars in the midst of a mini-baby boom.
Just last month, rebellious cousin Amy Duggar welcomed her first child.
Back in June, Jessa Duggar welcomed her third.
Currently, Josiah Duggar's wife, Lauren Swanson is pregnant with her first child.
It would be an exciting time for any family, but considering the emphasis the Duggars place on procreation, you can bet Jim Bob and Michelle are especially thrilled with the year's developments!
