The Duggar couple shared that their daughter, Bella Milagro Duggar, was born on November 8 and 4:24 P.M. Bella weighed 6lbs 5oz and was 18.5 inches long. They wrote, Our hearts are so full! We are so thankful for God blessings us with such a healthy baby girl!" Although Bella and Lauren are healthy, Lauren apparently had a very rough and long labor. They told Us Weekly, “After a long and difficult labor, our girl arrived. When we finally got to see and hold our precious Bella Milagro all the pain instantly went away. We can’t believe she is ours — she is so perfect! She definitely has lived up to her name which means, ‘beautiful miracle.’ Today we are basking in God’s goodness!”

The couple is so excited that they were able to welcome a sweet healthy baby. Last year Lauren suffered a traumatic miscarriage when she was about five weeks along. When she had her miscarriage she said that it was a very difficult experience for her and her husband. She shared that she was feeling very crampy and didn't feel very well. She went to the bathroom and she noticed a lot of blood she said, "there is the baby." She knew that she was experiencing a miscarriage and it was a tough time. Their daughter, Bella, arrived about a year after they had a miscarriage. They feel so blessed to have their rainbow baby here.

Lauren just shared on her Instagram a shoutout to all of the mothers who have lost their baby's. She said, "Sending love ❤️ this month to any parent who has lost a baby. Losing a little life at any stage is heartbreaking and devastating and should not go unnoticed. For all you mamas, yes, even you mamas who’s arms have never had the chance to hold your babies-you’re a Mama! Remember, that you are loved. You are a warrior. You are not alone. You are not forgotten."

Congratulations you guys on your brand new daughter! We hope that Lauren has a quick and easy recovery! Bella is beautiful!
