“Counting On” stars John David Duggar, 29, and wife Abbie, 27, are parents for the first time!
On Tuesday, the pair welcomed a baby girl, who they named Grace Annette. John David and Abbie released a joint statement on the family website that read, “Our lives have changed forever with the arrival of our baby girl. She is a beautiful gift from God! We are so blessed the Lord has given her to us. It’s still surreal to know that we are really parents, but it’s a great new adventure that we are excited to take on together!”
The couple gushed on Instagram, “We are quite smitten by our new bundle of joy and are soaking in all of her little newborn snuggles!”
John David and Abbie announced in August that they had a baby on the way. At the time, John David wrote, “We are so excited to announce that we are having a baby girl… I just hope she’s as pretty as her mommy, I know she will be!”
During their reveal party, John David’s brother Jeremiah revealed the gender of the baby by flying a plane overhead with a flight number that corresponded to a baby boy. There were also confetti cannons that released pink streamers.
John David and Abbie tied the knot in 2018 after several months together.
