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.
