I started this pregnancy 'overweight' per the BMI calculator but I could careless because I love myself and I love the children that gave me this body!"

Another added, "This is the most real post ever! It's absolutely beautiful!"

"We are completely speechless, overly excited and ready for the next chapter as new parents!" the couple told PEOPLE at the time. "I'm over the moon about becoming a momma! I just can't hardly wait."


While Duggar hasn't shied away from giving fans an up-close look at her life, she does have her limits. Although many of her cousins live out their lives in front of the cameras on the TLC reality series Counting On, she confirmed before giving birth that she has no intentions of stepping in front of the camera with her son, telling fans that "no cameras need to see all of that" when responding to the question of whether or not there will be a birth special.
