Six kids and counting! Anna Duggar gave birth to her sixth child with her husband Josh. The couple welcomed their third baby girl on Wednesday, November 27. Maryella Hope Duggar was born at 9:12 a.m., weighing 8 pounds and 2 ounces, and measuring 20 1/2 inches, the proud parents told Us Weekly.
Anna, 31, revealed that she and Josh were expecting another baby in April. “We are so excited to announce that we are expecting a new little one! As we watch our children grow and thrive — we look forward to baby six joining us this fall!” she wrote on Instagram.
In June, the mom-of-six shared that she would be having a girl. The family staged a gender reveal where one of the kids poured water into a fake bee’s nest and out came pink liquid. Anna told fans, “This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it always so exciting! Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter/sister this fall! ???.”
She continued, “With Grandma’s passing last week, this 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love — I’m so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus!” Josh’s grandmother Mary died of an accidental drowning a week before they had their gender reveal party.
“You're like my superhero in so many ways!!” Amy, 33, commented on Anna’s post after the expectant mom dropped by to meet the boutique owner’s son Daxton Ryan.
Anna seemingly wants a big family just like Jim Bob and Michelle! Throughout her pregnancy, she’s babysat sister-in-law's kids, taken Jim Bob and Michelle’s younger kids out on trips, and organized bonding events for the extended family.
