Four days after her due date, Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, have finally welcomed their first baby into the world, People magazine reports.

The baby boy was born Thursday evening, according to the site, though details so far are scarce. The gender reveal is already proving fans wrong, after 58,350 people voted in an online poll predicting that Duggar was expecting a girl, while only 23,158 guessed that she had a boy on the way.

Duggar and Seewald announced their pregnancy last spring, just months after their November wedding. It was later revealed that their due date was the same as their wedding anniversary: Nov. 1. The baby was a little late, but we can’t imagine that’s dampening any celebrations in the Duggar/Seewald household today.

"I think having this first year together to share our lives, just the two of us, has been special," Duggar told People exclusively back in April, before adding that she and her husband were "definitely excited to be parents."

People also reports that the baby’s arrival will be featured on Duggar’s spinoff reality series, Counting On, a TLC series of specials that will focus on Jessa and Jill Duggar.
