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.
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!
