Josiah and Lauren Duggar welcomed their daughter, Bella Milagro, on November 8 and they are completely smitten with her. On Tuesday morning, the “Counting On” couple shared a photo of their baby wearing a winter hat and snuggling with Lauren.
“We both cannot get over just how perfect she is! #sheissoloved #ourlittlemircale
firstchristmaswithbella,” they wrote in the caption.
“I’m soo happy for u guys!!! She is absolutely perfect!!! She is Bella literally and figuratively. Merry Christmas,” one fan replied in the comments.
“She’s beautiful! Newborn life is precious. Tis why I had nine babies!!!” another wrote.
“She is so precious and sweet thanks for sharing this picture,” a third said.
The couple announced baby Bella’s birth in a statement to Us Weekly last month.
“After a long and difficult labor, our girl arrived,” they said. “When we finally got to see and hold our precious Bella Milagro all the pain instantly went away. We can’t believe she is ours — she is so perfect! She definitely has lived up to her name which means, ‘beautiful miracle.’ Today we are basking in God’s goodness!”
Just over a year ago, the couple suffered a miscarriage. It’s an experience that still shapes them, and they often show support for other couples who have gone through the painful experience.
“Sending love this month to any parent who has lost a baby,” the couple wrote on Instagram. “Losing a little life at any stage is heartbreaking and devastating and should not go unnoticed. For all you mamas, yes, even you mamas who’s arms have never had the chance to hold your babies-you’re a Mama! Remember, that you are loved. You are a warrior. You are not alone. You are not forgotten.”
Earlier this month, they shared an adorable photo of Bella on her one-month birthday.
“1 month with Bella. It’s hard to believe Bella is already a month old! She is the sweetest, happiest, and most content little baby. She brings us so much joy!” they said.
