Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson got a miracle with the entrance of their first child into the world, a little over a year since they suffered a miscarriage.


There's another Duggar in the world! Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson would easily win the award for the happiest people in the world if one existed. The couple just shared the news of their first child, and daughter, and are on cloud nine.


On their joint Instagram account, the new parents shared a photo of the baby girl looking all shades of adorable in a pink head warmer and wrapped in a floral-designed shawl, and another of the new dad kissing his wife as she held onto their daughter.

The couple captioned the snaps,

"Look who's here! Bella Milagro Duggar was born on November 8th, 2019, at 4:24 p.m. weighing six lbs., five oz., and 18.5 inches long. "

They continued,

"Our hearts are full, and we are thankful for God blessing us with such a healthy baby girl."


Reacting to the news, pregnant Anna Duggar, wrote,

"Congratulations! Bella is beautiful."

While Jill Duggar commented,

"Such a doll."


In a joint statement to Us Weekly, Josiah and Lauren revealed that the first time mom who chose a hospital rather than home birth, had a long and difficult labor, but she forgot the pain after she saw Bella. The "Counting On" stars said,

"We can't believe she's ours. She definitely has lived up to her name, which means beautiful miracle."


The birth of Bella is coming a little over a year after the reality stars lost their son, whom they planned to name, Asa. Josiah and Lauren found out they were expecting soon after they got married in June 2018, but lost the baby at five weeks.

A recent episode of "Counting On" showed that the first-time mom was devastated by the loss and suffered depression for a long time.

Lauren got over it with the help of Josiah and the realization that every good and perfect gift comes from God. Today, she's looking forward to enjoying the joys of motherhood, and couldn't be happier.
