Duggar announced on Monday, August 24, that she and Austin Forsyth had welcomed baby No. 2. Evelyn joined older brother Gideon, 2.

“To say my heart is full is an understatement,” the couple told Us Weekly in a statement at the time. “We have been dreaming of this day and are so happy to announce that our baby girl arrived August 21st at 2:12 p.m. weighing 8 pounds, 5 ounces and is 19.5 inches long! She has the best personality, is easy going and loves to be held! She has her nights and days mixed up, but honestly, I love it! Getting to spend that quiet, quality time with her through the night has been SO special!”

The baby news came five months after Duggar and Forsyth, 26, revealed that she was pregnant with their rainbow baby after a July 2019 miscarriage.
