The Dillard Family blog entry shared a glimpse of life after welcoming the newest member of their family with brothers sporting custom t-shirts with the words “big” and “middle” across the front. The 19 Kids And Counting alum used the entry not only as a digital birth announcement to their fans, but she also took the opportunity to thank family and friends for their support during the transition period.

“Mom and baby are doing well and we have been so blessed by the support of friends and family who have come to help, provide meals and watch the big boys for us during this time of transition and recovery.”

The joyful announcement comes after a devastating loss suffered by the young family. In an emotional post titled “Happiness Turns To Heartbreak,” Duggar detailed the rollercoaster of emotions the family experienced after her recent miscarriage.

"Even though it was too early to tell the baby’s gender, we picked a name that we feel encompasses our baby’s significance and the life we will always remember: River Bliss Dillard," she wrote.

After the loss, Duggar once again penned a heartfelt announcement to readers when she shared the news that they were expecting again.

"Ever since we were devastated last fall by the miscarriage of our sweet baby, River Bliss, we have prayed that, if it was God’s will, he would bless us with another baby," she penned in the announcement. "We are excited to announce that God has answered our prayers and we are expecting our rainbow baby due July 2022!"

The news followed another highly emotional event for the Duggar family when Josh Duggar was sentenced to jail after being found guilty of receiving and possession of child pornography.

Duggar and Dillard were the first of the reality TV family to speak out following the ruling.
