John David and Abbie Duggar recently welcomed a baby girl into their family and now they’re proudly sharing her sweet photo and name with the world, Mamas Uncut reports.
The Counting On stars welcomed their first child, Grace Annette, in January and the little family of three is just adorable.
Abbie and John Duggar Share First Photos of Their First Child, Grace ‘Gracie’ Annette
“Welcome to our world Grace Annette (Gracie)!!! Gracie was born early Tuesday morning, she was 7 pounds 11 oz and 20 3/4 inches long,” shared the happy couple on Instagram. “We are quite smitten by our new bundle of joy and are soaking in all of her little newborn snuggles!”
The new mom took to Instagram days after announcing Gracie’s birth and gushed, “I think our hearts have grown 10 sizes,” Abbie said alongside a photo of her husband and baby girl.
“We are on Cloud 9 about welcoming our own little Duggar into the world,” the couple said in their statement when they first announced they were pregnant.
“It really is amazing to think about being parents and having our own child to raise. We are thankful that God has blessed us with this new life and we look forward to taking on this new adventure!”
In a video for TLC, the blissful couple shared the meaning behind little Grace Annette’s name.
“Abbie said she liked the name Grace and that’s Abbie’s middle name,” said John David. “My mom’s middle name is Annette. Grace Annette sounded like it went together so it was about that easy.”
Throughout her pregnancy, Abbie opened up about her struggles with hyperemesis gravidarum. “I pretty much just been lying in bed, go to the bathroom and maybe to the couch,” Abbie shared at the time. “Morning sickness has hit me pretty hard.”
Congratulations on the latest addition to the Duggar family! We can’t wait to see more adorable moments from John David, Abbie, and Grace.
