Baby “M” is here! TLC reality stars Josh and Anna Duggar have welcomed their third child.

Anna gave birth Sunday morning to their son Marcus Anthony Duggar, who weighed in at 9 lbs., 3 oz., according to People magazine.

“We are so thankful that mom and baby are well! We are blessed to have our family close as we celebrate this gift from God,” the couple tells People.

Marcus joins sister Mackynzie, age 3, and brother Michael, age 2, who are “thrilled to welcome a little brother.” Josh and Anna are continuing their own baby-naming trend of giving their kids names that start with “M,” just as their parents named all 19 (and counting) of their kids with “J” names.

Josh is the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the stars of the TLC reality series “19 Kids and Counting.”

The arrival of the latest addition to the Duggar clan has been documented for a TLC special, “19 Kids & Counting: GrandDuggar Makes 3!,” which premieres Sunday, June 16, at 8/7c on TLC.
