Duggars Welcome First Grandson on TV Special

06/16/2011 at 10:50 AM EDT



Hours before she welcomed her baby boy into the world Wednesday, Anna Duggar was feeling a rather distinct emotion.

"I'm feeling like I'm in labor," Duggar, 22, already a mother to Mackynzie, 20 months, says in 19 Kids: First Grandson, a special airing Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on TLC. "I'm excited, and I'm really looking forward to holding our son in my arms."

In a sneak peek of the TV special, husband Josh Duggar, 23 – the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar – comforts his wife as she sits in a birthing pool in labor at their Tontitown, Ark., home. Michelle and daughter Jill, whose lives play out on TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, were also on-hand to assist Anna.





"[Anna] is probably going to move from [the birthing pool] to take a shower, and then when it's time for the baby to be born, she will be moving to her room," Michelle explains in the clip, released just a day after the baby boy, whose name will start with an "M" to follow their family tradition, arrived.

Born at 5:55 p.m., the little Duggar weighed in at 8 lbs., 5 oz.
