Grand-Duggar #9 is Here!

 Mackynzie Duggar, Anna Duggar, Meredith Duggar, Josh Duggar, 
Michael Duggar, Marcus Duggar

Another Duggar has joined the clan! Josh and Anna Duggar welcomed their fifth child today. He weighed 9lbs, 1 oz and was 22 inches long. As expected, this little Duggar has been given a name that starts with "M." Welcome to the world, Mason Garrett Duggar!

Garrett is a family name from Michelle's side. Her father was Garrett Ruark, and her brother is Garrett Ruark Jr. Joseph's middle name is also Garrett.

Visit DuggarFamily.com to see a photo of Mason.

    1. Usually, the best thing to say to a mother who's just given birth is congratulations. Some things are better left unsaid altogether.

    2. Seriously....that is decision between God, her and Josh. I think God has got this.

    3. you are an evil person, why would you wish infertility on someone

      Delete
    4. Very well put, sweetpea2000!

      Delete
    5. Anon @ 5:40 No one wished infertility on Anna, the original poster merely said they hoped she didn't have anymore. I don't think that Anna would get much help from Josh with chores or childcare so five is a lot to take care of plus homeschool, maybe that is why they said it? Please do not call someone evil for a comment they may not have thought out, or you might have misinterpreted!

  21. Mason is a nice name. Congratulations! Thank goodness he was born today on the 12th rather than on September 11th

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe because Sept 11 is a day of sadness for our country?

      Delete
    2. Because 9/11 has such a sad connotation for our country now.

      Delete
    3. I think 9-11 would be a good day to have a baby. It would show that what humankind intends for evil, God intends for good. New birth is a reminder to us that God has the final say, and that God is good.

      Delete
    4. People born on Sept 11 have a hard time celebrating because the country is remembering something of a sad day. Trust me I know. Sept 12 is way better. Be sad and remember the 11th and then move on to a happy 12th.

  22. what a great name. Mason. since they have been rebuilding their marriage, it is apt.

    1. Good observation!!! Yes, I agree with you

      Delete
    2. I thought they named him after the jar, since all the Duggars like using Mason jars as wedding decorations.

    1. It's too close to Madison, isn't it. I had the same reaction. I feel bad because I think a lot of people will go there.

      Delete
    2. Well, of 83 comments on 9/13, you're the only two that "went there"~I never considered any commonalities between the names. Many of the comments share a love of the name they chose! Congratulations, Josh & Anna! Mason is a beautiful baby~your family is blessed!

      Delete
    3. Deanna, uh, nooo...? I never thought of the name Madison until you yourself brought it up here. I think the name Mason is adorable.

      Delete
    4. Never would have thought of that.

      Delete
    5. No it's not, stop trying to start trouble

      Delete
    6. Who care's if it's too close to Madison, there are no Madison's in their family. How does that even matter?

      Delete
    7. Honestly, Im not starting trouble. I like the name Mason and think the meaning is apropos but that is the first thing I thought of and can't believe others are not making the same correlation. I think its an unfortunate choice considering and think you are going to hear backlash in the media about it. If they had a girl and named her Madison wouldnt you think that odd? Mason is almost the same name. Just take out the "di".

      Delete
    8. Really?! That is a stupid suggestion!! Mason is absolutely, positively an ADORABLE name with no similarity or connection to the name Madison. The only connection they have is they are both popular M names.

      Delete
    9. I agree with Deanna. The names are very similar. Identical except for one syllable. I know they didn't do that on purpose but I find it strange that they didn't realize what they were doing. They must have liked the name enough to override the comparisons.

      Delete
    10. Deanna, I think you're really stretching it here.

  43. Congratulations! May the Lord pour out His blessings on this sweet family!!!

  52. Congratulations Josh and Anna! He is a true gift from God. That will draw you closer to him and the lord. The baby will allow you to fall more and more in love with him as each day passes, because he was already a blessing of love even before he was born.

  61. Josh and Anna need to go live a quiet life away from cameras and public opinion

    Replies
    1. I agree. Oprah has given celebrities that advice-- if you want your relationship to last, don't make it public.

      Delete
    2. I'll second that!

      Delete
    3. Isn't that what they've been doing?

      Delete
    4. No that is not what they are doing since this is a post about Josh and Anna with the new baby's picture along with their other children's pictures. I would snatch my little family out of the public circus and get a job and raise them in a Godly private life. Teaching them if they work hard they will not have to depend on others for their home, or a reality tv show for their income. If this keeps up their children as they get older will be seeing Daddy's picture all over magazine covers being trashed, along with daily doses of attacks online. God's way is always the best way and that is live a quiet life,working hard and trusting God to supply. If they wouldn't dare allow TLC to be on in their homes, it probably isn't Gods will that you are on TLC in the first place.

    5. Yes lets all get our advise from Oprah...(being sarcastic) geez.
      They are getting their advise from their own Biblical convictions and its not good enough?? But Oprah has all the answers? My goodness...

  73. Congrats to Anna, Josh and family! I love the name Mason - verb "build from or strengthen with stone" - such a great strong name that if the name is chosen from that meaning, it also holds to Anna and Josh and their hopefully strengthened relationship!
    I can't wait to see more pictures of this little handsome man!

  78. Wow now there are 3 birthdays of the duggar's my immediate family shares. My youngest son's birthday is September 12th 2005, mine is April 6th 1978, my sister's is August 2nd 1982. It's a shame we don't live in the states as there could be a possibility of my youngest boy and Johanna getting together a few years down the road they are a month apart. Any how congrats on little Mason. Hoping to find out soon the sex of Joy and Austin's bundle coming. Plus also news of more duggar's weddings and babies to come.
