Lauren and Josiah Duggar from 'Counting On' Share Sneak Peek of 1st Family Photo with Daughter Bella at Home
After welcoming their daughter, Bella Milagro Duggar, 'Counting On Stars,' Lauren and Josiah Duggar give their fans a sneak of their first family photos.
On November 8, Lauren and Josiah Duggar welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Bella Milagro Duggar.
On their Instagram account, they share their excitement and announce that US Weekly has the first exclusive pictures of their newborn.
It is revealed that her name means "beautiful miracle." Three months before making their pregnancy announcement Lauren and Duggar hinted at her name, at the time calling their then, unborn daughter, "a miracle from God," because they had previously suffered a miscarriage.
Having tied the knot in 2018, Josiah says the miscarriage was very difficult on the newlyweds because it ruined their hopes to hold their first child in their arms.

Sending love ❤️ this month to any parent who has lost a baby. Losing a little life at any stage is heartbreaking and devastating and should not go unnoticed. For all you mamas, yes, even you mamas who’s arms have never had the chance to hold your babies-you’re a Mama! Remember, that you are loved. You are a warrior. You are not alone. You are not forgotten. . . . #babylossawarenessmonth #babyloss #youareLoved #youarenotalone #miscarriage #blessamamatoday #bravemamas #angelbabies
