Josh Duggar and Anna Welcome Baby No. 5

The TLC reality star and his wife are thrilled to announce the birth of their son Mason Garrett Duggar.

AceShowbiz - %cJosh Duggar% and his wife Anna have welcomed a new addition to their growing family. Anna gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday, September 12. The baby weighed in at 9 lbs., 1 oz. and is 22 inch long. The couple named their newborn son Mason Garrett Duggar.

The couple shared the first picture of the newborn on their official blog. "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," they wrote.

"The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing. 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."

Baby Mason is Josh's fifth child with Anna. The newborn joins siblings Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2, in the family.

Josh, 29, kept a low profile after he faced sexual assault and infidelity scandals back in 2015. He came under fire for molesting his sisters several times when he was a teen and received another wave of criticisms after his account on cheating website Ashley Madison was exposed.

The controversies led to the cancellation of the family's original show "19 Kids and Counting". However, it didn't take long for them to return to TV in a so-called spin-off "Counting On".

In the past couple years, there have been several engagements and weddings followed by baby boom in the family. Josh's sisters Jill, 26, and Jessa, 24, are now married with two sons. Joy-Anna, 19, is also married and currently expecting her first child. The other married family member are Jinger, 23, and Joseph, 22.
