John-David and Abbie Duggar welcomed their first baby to the world on January 9.
Throughout the pregnancy, Abbie suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum. John talked about having to care for her. He said, “It hit her hard, and she was down for probably seven weeks with severe morning sickness. She got diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, and she was hospitalized a couple times. We made multiple visits to the ER for dehydration. … She couldn’t eat, pretty much, or drink, or anything. So she was actually on IVs and had IVs at home. So that was a pretty scary time.”
Fortunately, both mom Abbie and baby Grace Annette are doing well. The couple is absolutely thrilled to be parents. And, fans are excited to see how parenthood goes for them. Because of Abbie’s difficult pregnancy and the fact that they got married later in life, fans are wondering if they’ll have a large family. It’s possible that they only have a couple more kids.
John and Abbie Duggar update fans on parenthood
Just two weeks after her arrival, the couple spoke with Us Weekly. They said, “We are settling into our new routine of life, which has included a few long nights as Gracie is still trying to figure out the difference between day and night!”
So far, the couple hasn’t been very active on social media. John and Abbie share an Instagram page, as do many of the other Duggar couples. They have shared a couple of posts about their new addition. But, they didn’t seem to post often prior to her birth either.
Fans are hoping that they will be able to see new pictures as Grace grows up.
Is there a Counting On birth special?
Duggar fans know that TLC’s Counting On often airs birth specials when new babies join the family. So, with a new baby in the family, fans were wondering if there would be a birth special for her. These episodes are separate from the typical episodes of the show.
The new birth special for Grace is here! You can watch it on TLC’s website or on the TLC Go App.
This special episode is in two parts. Part one is eight minutes long and part two is nine minutes long so it’s short and sweet.
While you’re on TLC’s website or app, you can watch older episodes Counting On or other birth specials.
