Several members of the Duggar family offered congratulations, including John David's sister, Jill (Duggar) Dillard, who commented, "Congrats guys! He is such a little cutie!πŸ’™"

Jill, 31, welcomed baby boy No. 3 β€” son Frederick Michael "Freddy" Dillard β€” with husband Derick Dillard, 33, in July.

The siblings' younger brother Jeremiah Duggar and his wife, Hannah (Wissmann) Duggar, are next in line for a Duggar baby β€” they announced that they were expecting in August.

But the Duggars' joy is tempered by family drama involving oldest brother Josh, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison in May on a federal child pornography conviction.

While the Dillards wrote in a family blog post on May 26 that recent times had been "difficult emotionally" for the family and said they believed the sentencing was proof "God has carried out his vengeance today for [Josh's] unspeakable criminal activity," many of the Duggars have remained publicly silent on Josh's legal situation.
