Derick and Jill Dillard‘s new baby boy is already a star!

The proud parents posted a sweet video of little Israel David on their blog Tuesday, showing the Duggar family’s latest addition cuddling up to his mom and yawning for the camera.

“We’re so excited to announce the birth of our son, Israel David Dillard,” Jill, 23, says in the clip, with Derick by her side.

“He’s just a handsome little fella,” she adds, “and we’d like everybody to stay tuned to TLC, May 5, they’re going to be showing the birth episode as well as things surrounding that.”

The 19 Kids and Counting couple welcomed their first child together Monday, less than one year after they tied the knot on June 21, 2014.

Israel already made his big photo debut on Jill’s parents’ official Facebook page Tuesday. His overjoyed grandparents shared several photos of Israel in the delivery room with his mom and dad and wrote, “We are so thankful for a healthy Mom and baby! Love this sweet baby Israel! We are happy grandparents and we promise more pictures soon!”

As Jill mentioned, fans will also get to witness Israel’s birth, which was filmed for a 19 Kids and Counting episode that’s set to air on May 5. 19 Kids and Counting airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
