“On Thanksgiving eve our hearts are overflowing with joy and gratefulness for the arrival of our sixth child!” the couple said in a statement to Us Weekly. “Anna had a fast labor and delivery without complications. We are so thankful for a beautiful, healthy baby girl!”
Maryella is the fourth grandchild of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar to be born in 2019 – and the third in the month of November. Back in May, Counting On stars Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed their third child, a daughter named Ivy Jane.
Earlier this month, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell became parents for the second time when their daughter Addison Renee was born. And, Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson welcomed their first child, a daughter named Bella Milagro.
And, in October, cousin Amy Duggar King and her husband Dylan King became first-time parents when their son Daxton Ryan was born.

🦃 T H A N K S G I V I N G 🍁 Growing up Thanksgiving was one of the most anticipated holidays for my family. One of my favorite traditions was making a “Thanksgiving Chain” made up of one inch strips of construction paper. On each link we would write something that happened in the past year we were thankful for! Then we would hang the chain in our dining room and on Thanksgiving evening my family would take down the chain and spend time reading through each item remembering many of the special things from the previous year and closing with a time of prayer thanking God for His blessings! It’s so sweet to keep this tradition going with our children (all of my siblings have continued this with their families as well)! As long as we’re not in labor (baby six is due on Thanksgiving Day!), we look forward to reading our Thanksgiving chain and remembering all the many blessings God has given us! What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving traditions? #littleduggars
Josh and Anna announced their pregnancy back in April, and in June their kids joined them for their gender reveal. The couple also celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this past summer.
Just two days before giving birth, Anna gave a pregnancy update on her Instagram Story. She posted a selfie and wrote in the caption, “Soooo I’m almost 40 weeks pregnant and ALL my earrings still fit great!!!”
Anna also posted a pic of one of her favorite holiday traditions – making a “Thanksgiving chain.” Made from one-inch strips of construction paper, everyone writes something that happened in the past year that are thankful for. Then, the family makes the chain and hangs it in the dining room.
On Thanksgiving night, the family takes down the chain and spends time reading through each item to remember all of the special things from the previous year. This Thanksgiving, Josh and Anna Duggar have one more thing to be thankful for.
