Congratulations are in order for the Duggar family: Joy-Anna and her husband, Austin Forsyth, just welcomed their first child!

Joy-Anna and Austin tied the knot on May 26, 2017, and announced that they were expecting just a few months later.

Joy-Anna, 20, is the ninth child in the Duggar brood (there are 19 of them total!), and the youngest of the siblings to get married.

She and Austin welcomed baby boy Gideon Martyn Forsyth on February 23, 2018, at 3:39 p.m. He weighed 10 lbs., 3 oz., and was 22 inches long!

“Martyn” is also Austin’s middle name, so it’s sweet that they passed it on to the baby. The young couple seems absolutely thrilled with their little one — it looks like they can’t get enough of their baby boy.

Gideon is the first Duggar grandbaby of 2018, but he definitely won’t be the last! Jinger is expecting her first child with husband Jeremy Vuolo, and Joe is expecting his first son with wife Kendra Caldwell.

So far, there are 10 grandkids all together, eight boys and two girls.

Josiah also has some exciting things going on: he’s been courting Lauren Swanson since January, People reports.

Do you have any guesses about how many Duggar grandbabies there will be in total? If each of the 19 children has 19 of their own children, there could be a total of 361 grandchildren!
