Around 7:52 p.m. she was ready to start pushing and gave birth to baby Fern after 8 p.m. Fern weighed 8 lbs, 5 oz., and measured 21 inches at the time of her birth. They were struggling to decide the name of the baby and Duggar revealed,

“Ben and I have been sitting on the [sex] here for forever — months and months — and you’d think we’d have a name by now. But it’s harder than it seems. I feel like the more kids you have, the more you’ve used up, you know, the favorites. And I haven’t even always liked the same names from pregnancy to pregnancy. It’s kind of changed.”

Jessa added,

“[We] think we have a first name, we’re struggling with the middle name, we have about five or six different options, so we’ll see. The first two kids were five days old before we settled on a name, which was a long time.”
