Jessa (Duggar) Seewald has been on cloud nine since giving birth to her first child, a boy, with husband Ben Seewald on Thursday.
Jessa and Ben look happy and healthy in the photo, donning big smiles while cuddling up close to baby Seewald, who weighed in at 9 lbs, 11 oz. and measured more than 21 inches.
"Our sweet baby boy was born last night," Ben wrote on the website. "He's precious and both he and Jessa are doing great. Stay tuned -- we will share his name soon!"
Jessa gave birth at her home in Fayetteville, Arkansas, four days after her due date. Apparently, things didn't go as smoothly as she had anticipated. An ambulance was reportedly called to the scene, and the 23-year-old reality TV star was rushed to the hospital after she suffered from heavy bleeding, a source from the Duggar family confirmed to ET. "Jessa was taken to the hospital after giving birth -- such a big baby they wanted to make sure everything was OK," the source added. "And it is! The baby is absolutely beautiful. And Jessa is doing amazing, she is so happy. And Ben is so excited to be a dad! They are already such great parents!"
Despite the complications, many members of the Duggar family have already taken to social media to gush over their newest kin. None of them, however, revealed any indication that Jessa had experienced trouble giving birth.
Jessica Seewald, one of Ben's sisters, posted a simple photo of a white sheet of paper that read "I'm an auntie" in blue marker.
"So excited!!!!! Ben and Jessa have had their sweet new baby," a post from her parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, on the Duggar Family Official Facebook page read.
As for the little boy's birth weight, that may run in the family. On Nov. 2, Jessa revealed that she was the biggest of her siblings, weighing in at 9 lbs., 15 oz. when she was born. "I'd say it's very possible we could have a chubby little baby!" she joked. And it looks like her prediction came true!
