"We are excited to finally announce the arrival of Samuel Scott Dillard," the family wrote. "The newest addition to our family arrived on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 1:02 p.m. He weights 9lb 10oz and is 22' long. After 40 of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!"
Baby Samuel joins the couple's first son, 2-year-old Israel. The couple announced that they were expecting their second child last December and in January revealed that they were expecting a second boy.
This is the second C-section for Duggar who had an emergency C-section with Israel in 2015. Despite the complications with her first pregnancy, Duggar told PEOPLE in February that she was more calm for her second child.
"There's a level of ease that comes with your second pregnancy," she said. "Derick and I have been down this road together, so we're comfortable. I'm just going to see how it goes, try to be healthy and prepare as much as I can. But this time I know that labor is unpredictable."
