The couple welcomed their newborn Thursday evening
That’s one happy family.
The portrait features the beaming parents holding their son, who is swaddled in a blanket. TLC used the portrait in a message of congratulations the network aired Friday night.
Baby Seewald was born Thursday evening, weighing 9 lbs. 11 oz. and 21 ½ inches long.
Jessa, 23, and Ben, 20, shared their first photo of their newborn with PEOPLE exclusively Friday morning. The family posted more photos of their baby, including one of grandfather Jim Bob Duggar holding his sixth grandchild, on their website, www.theseewaldfamily.com
The new parents are not quite ready to reveal the name they’ve chosen for their son, but they’ve received congratulations from their family on social media. Jessa’s sister Jill (Duggar) Dillard, already mother to baby Israel, wrote on Instagram that she was “so excited for @jessaseewald and @ben_seewald.”
The birth of the new baby will be a focal point in Counting On, TLC‘s upcoming series of specials featuring Jessa and sister Jill’s lives now.
