At the time, she said, “I tend to want to stop breathing and just kind of hold my breath when I’m in a lot of pain. And that’s something that even during my childhood I’ve had to work on when I would fall down – to remember to breathe and not hold my breath because that causes more problems.”

The couple’s birth special will air on an upcoming episode of Counting On on TLC. Ahead of it, the family shared new photos of Addison and their growing family on their Instagram. “We are so excited to share photos of our family of four! We are so in love with Addison.”
