On Tuesday, December 10, 2019, “Counting On” reality star Anna Duggar took to social media to share a new and adorable image of her newborn daughter Maryella.

Duggar, who is the wife of former “19 Kids and Counting” star Josh Duggar, shared the image on Instagram that showed her baby girl sleeping. In the caption of the post, she spoke about the little girl’s outfit.

MARYELLA’S SOUGHT AFTER OUTFIT

The reality star tagged @kickeepants and explained how the brand was her “current favorite because they are adorable, super soft, and they still look good after multiple washes!” She then engaged her fans by asking them to share their favorite baby clothing brands.

The newborn wore a pink onesie with a pink bow around her forehead. She had a cute little pacifier dangling from her outfit.

THE NEWBORN’S NAMESAKE

Shortly after Maryella was born, her parents revealed that she was named after Grandma Mary Duggar, who passed away earlier this year. The Duggar family has made sure that all their children’s names start with the letter “M.”

In a social media post, the couple explained why they didn’t name the little girl “Mary,” saying they didn’t want to try and replace their grandmother. The pair also chose the name “Hope” as the little girl’s second name.

WHEN WAS SHE BORN

The post explained:

“We chose Hope for her middle name because of the Hope we have because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.”

Maryella was born on Thanksgiving eve, joining her other five siblings. She arrived in the morning at 9:12 a.m. weighing 8 pounds and 2 ounces; measuring at 20 inches long.

So many of you have asked...so here’s the story behind the name Maryella Hope! 👶🏻 Soon after we found out baby #6 was a girl we began name discussing name ideas and we thought we had it narrowed down. 📜 When Josh’s grandma passed away we considered the name Mary, but we were hesitant because Grandma (Mary Duggar) was such a special lady and we wanted our daughter’s name to be a reminder of how special Grandma was and carry on her legacy, but without feeling like we were trying to replace her. 👵🏼 Soon, our baby name list that we had narrowed down to 3 names had grown to a list of about dozen Mary-hyphenated names. As we continued chatting about names, Josh and I both fell in love with the name Maryella! ♥️ We chose Hope for her middle name because of the Hope we have because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. Jesus is the ultimate demonstration of love and hope. Jesus layed down His sinless life on the cross so we could be forgiven of our sins and one day live with Him in heaven forever when we die. We have Hope because of Christ! ✝️ During Maryella’s pregnancy there were so many unexpected joys, which included several more pregnancy announcements from family members! We also grieved alongside those we love the most, remembering life is fragile and sometimes very short. Even through the grief of the loss of loved ones we know that we have comfort, hope and strength as we look forward to one day being reunited in heaven with Jesus and our loved ones who are waiting for us there! 💕 Maryella Hope Duggar is such a blessing and we are so grateful for her! #littleduggars #baby #Maryella #Duggar #babygirl
