Anna and Josh Duggar got the best Thanksgiving gift with the arrival of their "Healthy and happy baby girl," and they are excited.

It's baby number 6 for Anna and Josh Duggar! The couple's family grew to eight with the arrival of their daughter, Maryella Hope Duggar, on November 27th, at 9:12 a.m. She weighed 8 lbs. 2 oz. and measured 20.5 inches.

Anna shared photos of the newborn on Instagram. The little girl looked adorable in a deep green onesie and beige bow and made different facial expressions. The sixth time mom wrote alongside the snaps,

"Maryella Hope arrived one day ahead of Thanksgiving Day 2019, and a great reminder to be grateful for all that God has done for us. We are so excited and thankful to God for his special blessing, and giving us this precious, happy, healthy baby girl."


The new mom, who had a fast and uncomplicated delivery, got a lot of congratulatory messages from her followers. Jill Duggar and new parents, Josiah and Lauren, also commented on the post, calling their little niece, adorable.

Anna and Josh announced they were expecting baby number six in April with a video post on Instagram. The clip showed the moment they shared the news with their older children. The couple's kids, MacKynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, and Mason, are aged between 9 and 2.


One of the "19 and Counting On" stars' son helped in the gender reveal a month later, by pouring water on a gold beehive, which brought out pink bubbles. The couple sees each of their children as unique and special, and they are proud of them.


Anna and Josh got married in 2008 and celebrated their 11th anniversary in September. The mom-of-six, marked the marriage milestone with a throwback photo of their wedding day on Instagram, writing that God's grace and kindness have sustained them.

That same month, the couple took their four older children to a football game, and Anna shared a photo of the rare family outing with her followers. She and the dad-of-six always put their children first and persevere through the good and bad times for their sake.
