Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed their son into the world Thursday night.  

"Our sweet baby boy was born last night," Ben Seewald posted on the family blog. The blog also contains several precious photos of the latest addition. "He weighed 9 lbs and 11 ounces and is 21 1/4 inches long! He's precious and both he and Jessa are doing great. Stay tuned—we will share his name soon!" 

TLC chronicled Jessa's pregnancy in their new special, Jill and Jessa: Counting Onwhich will premiere in December.  

The family endured drama earlier this summer when news hit that Jessa was one of four victims molested by her older brother, Josh.  

Later, Josh admitted to cheating on his wife, Anna, with an Ashley Madison account.  

Despite the family struggles, the Duggars are thrilled with Jessa and Ben's new arrival, as are fans.  

"He is a big baby! but congratulations to Jessa and Ben, and family. Very happy that both Mum and baby are healthy and happy! I was convinced Jessa was having twins, but all that matters is that baby is healthy! And beautiful!!" posted one fan.  

Baby Seewald was due on the couple's first anniversary earlier this month.
