It’s a Girl! ‘Counting On’ Star Jeremiah Duggar & Wife Hannah Welcome First Child

“We made another Duggar blessing, y’all!”

The Duggar family just keeps growing! 

Jeremiah Duggar and his wife Hannah announced on Sunday that they have welcomed their first child, a baby girl who was born on Christmas Day. The couple posted photos of their yuletide blessing to announce her name: Brynley Noelle.

“After an incredible year, God gave us a precious Christmas gift to top it all off!!” they wrote in the photos’ Instagram caption. “Baby girl decided to arrive early and we are totally and completely in love with our little Brynley Noelle.

Baby Brynley weighed in at 6 lbs., 15 oz. and measured 19.5 inches at birth.

 As The Ashley previously reported, the former Counting On star has been on the fast- track with Hannah since they announced their courtship in 2021. They got married in March after only five months together, and, five months after their wedding, announced that Hannah was pregnant

(As 19 Kids & Counting fans know, the Duggars generally do not believe in birth control and believe in having “as many children as God gives you.” Because of this, it is common for a Duggar to get pregnant very quickly after getting married.)

Jeremiah and Hannah are currently living in a camper that they renovated themselves (with the help of some of his siblings). They plan to continue to live in the camper with the baby.

“Come on. That’s enough rest. Let’s get to makin’ Blessing No. 2!”

Next up in the Duggar birthing stirrups will be Katey Duggar, the wife of Jeremiah’s twin brother Jedidiah. They recently announced that they are expecting their second child, despite the fact that their first child is only seven months old. Jed and Katey later revealed that they’re having a girl and naming her Nora Kate. 

Jeremiah’s sister, Joy Duggar Forsyth, is also pregnant. She is due to give birth to her third child in the spring.

“So many blessings…except for that whole ‘Our Oldest Kid is in Prison’ thing, of course.”

  1. And now don’t knock her up as soon as your twin brother did his wife please!

    Jeremiah comes across as the smarter one of the two…I say comes across, no idea if he actually is. Please don’t have another baby asap!

    1. Speaking as someone with French blood in them, it’s tragique not trajique.

      And there is nothing tragic or extremely sad about it.

      I admit, the spelling of the first name is a little odd but it’s pretty and she was born on Christmas day so Noelle fits rather well.

      At least it’s not Fern or Ivy. Don’t get me wrong, both are beautiful names but they were popular probably 50 years ago but I honestly can’t think of anyone other than these two babies that have these names now. But with Jessa and Ben nothing surprises me after naming a child Spurgeon.

  2. They definately have more than 26 grandchildren. Kendra and Lauren have been spotted multiple times with new infants. Jim Bob also recently said they are about to have 30 children.

  3. Wait if Joy is due in October that means she would have gotten pregnant in January & it’s literally January 1st??
