Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth welcomed their baby boy just a little early.

The couple announced the news over the weekend with a photo of themselves with their newest addition.

Details surrounding his birth weren’t revealed; the only information was that mom and baby were doing well.

Leading up to the birth, Joy was nervous about the possibility of a c-section, which she documented on her YouTube channel. Luckily, the little one flipped and was head down before she went into labor.

Gunner James Forsyth is the couple’s third child, as they already have a son, Gideon, and a daughter, Evelyn.

Joy revealed her son’s name and his stats. Gunner weighed eight pounds and 14 ounces and was born on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
