Congrats are in order for Josh and Anna Duggar! The couple welcomed baby number five on Tuesday, September 12. The Duggar family announced the news on their blog and social media, and assured fans that mom and baby are doing well -- and shared a beautiful photo as well.


Josh and Anna released a statement, saying, "We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well. He arrived today without complication and we already adore him."

Isn't he adorable? He has the most perfect little newborn lips! Little Mason joins big sisters Mackynzie, 7, and Meredith, 2, and big brothers Michael, 5, and Marcus, 4.

They announced they were expecting again last March, a year and a half after he entered a faith-based rehab for sex addiction. Along with the pregnancy announcement, the couple said that they had quietly been working to save their marriage and rebuild their family.

"Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust. We've learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time," they shared at the time. "As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year. Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!"
