TLCs 19 Kids and Counting family welcome another adorable new arrival

TLC stars Jed Duggar and his wife Katey have announced the arrival of their first child just 13 months after the pair got hitched.

The couple – who rose to fame on 19 Kids and Counting – wasted no time starting a family of their own, sharing the announcement of their new son, Truett Oliver Duggar, on Instagram.

Jed, and Katey, both 23, told fans: “He’s here! We love you so much, baby True!

“Truett Oliver Duggar Born Monday, May 2. 6:34pm. 8 lb 5 oz. 20.5 inches,” they wrote on Instagram.

He added that the baby boy’s first name, Truett, means “warrior for Christ” and his middle name, Oliver, means “peace.”

The 19 Kids and Counting alum announced their pregnancy news in September 2021 with a PDA pic via Instagram.

“She tested positive, but not for COVID,” the TLC personality wrote at the time, alongside a winking emoji.

In the social media upload, the Arizona native kissed her husband and covered her stomach with a sign, reading, “And then there were three. Baby Duggar. Spring ’22.”

True's arrival makes him the 22nd grandchild for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

Jed's twin brother, Jeremiah, got married in March, and their oldest son and convicted felon Josh has seven kids with his wife Anna.

John David has one child with his wife Abbie, Jill has two — and is expecting a third — with her husband Derick Dillard, Jessa has four with her husband Ben Seewald, and Jinger has two with her husband Jeremy Vuolo.

Joe also has three children with his wife Kendra, Josiah has one with his wife Lauren, and Joy Anna has two with her husband Austin Forsyth.

For years, each birth of a Duggar grandchild was documented on TV, first on 19 Kids and Counting and then on the spinoff, Counting On.

Speaking of his marriage to Katey, Jed gushed at the time: “For a long time, I have prayed for my future spouse, not knowing who that person would be. God answered my prayers far beyond what I could have ever imagined in Katey.

“We have enjoyed quietly developing our relationship over the past year and every moment together has been amazing!”
