"It was a long labor, but complication free and I feel really great," Anna exclusively told Us Weekly, nearly two weeks following Mason’s birth. "It's a blessing to have so much help from our moms and family members. Our other little ones adore Mason and want to hold him all the time!"
Just days after their baby boy's arrival, the family's rep exclusively told Us that Anna gave birth at her home in Northwest Arkansas with the help of a midwife. "Her water broke Monday morning early and she labored all day before having Mason at 1:22 a.m. Tuesday," the rep said.
Anna and Josh announced Mason’s arrival on the Duggar Family’s website. "We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar,” the couple wrote in a blog post on September 12. “Both he and Anna are doing well. He arrived today without complication and we already adore him.”
"The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing,” the post continued. “We want to thank everyone for your prayers, kind words and well wishes. We appreciate it much more than we could ever express. We pray God blesses each of you with an abundance of the kindness you’ve shown us."
Mason joins the couples four children, Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2.
