The Duggar family’s pro-life legacy is continuing as daughter Jill Duggar and her husband are proud to led everyone know today that the have given birth to a bouncing baby boy.

Jill Duggar, daughter of Bob and Michelle Duggar from the reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, celebrated Christmas with her family and shared with the world that she and her husband, Derrick, were expecting. On Christmas Day, Jill, 23, posted a photo on Instagram of her baby bump wrapped up like a present. Jill’s wrapped baby bump had a note that read: “To: Jill & Derrick, From: God.”

Now the little guy has been born. Here’s more:

Not one year after being the first of the Duggar girls to tie the knot, Jill and husband Derick Dillard welcomed baby Israel David on April 6.

Weighing in at 9 lbs., 10 oz., Jill and Derick’s first child arrived 11:49 p.m. Monday night.

According to the Dillards, mom and baby are both doing well.

On June 21st, Jill and Derrick got married in Springdale, Arkansas in front of 1,000 guests, including family and friends. Jill and Derrick met through Jill’s father, Bob Duggar and announced earlier this year that they’re expecting their first baby, a boy, in March 2015.

This past year the Duggar family has been the subject of much controversy because of their pro-life and Christian views. In fact, in November the liberal website Change.org organized a petition to pressure TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting” and gathered over 180,000 names. They accused the Duggar family of “using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering” and criticized Jessa Duggar’s comment on Instagram comparing abortion to the Holocaust.

However, their petition to cancel the popular reality show was unsuccessful and Jim Bob Duggar said it just gave them “more exposure.” As LifeNews previously reported, this isn’t the first time a Duggar has spoken out against the abortion holocaust. In 2013, during the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit, Jim Bob Duggar said, “We have since 1973 (when Roe v. Wade was decided) had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust.”
