Finally the Duggars have a reason to celebrate: the family welcomed a new baby girl, as Anna and Josh had their fourth child.

The couple named the newborn Meredith Grace, and the baby weighed 7 lbs., 14 oz. Anna and Josh also have a daughter named Mackynzie Renee; and sons Michael James and Marcus Anthony.

The addition of the little one comes on the heels of TLC dropping the hammer on their once-successful show 19 Kids and Counting, amid two months of trouble after the public learned of Josh Duggar's admitted molestation of five underage girls, resulting in an unsuccessful crisis-control campaign that saw some family members speak with Fox News.

After admitting he'd "acted inexcusably" as a teen, Josh put his political career on hold -- likely permanently -- as he stepped down from his job Family Research Council, and moved back to Arkansas from Maryland.

As for Anna, she's stood by her man through the tough time, denouncing his past actions while praising him as "someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life."
