Anna Duggar announced the birth of her seventh child with former "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar amid a child pornography scandal.

In an Instagram post Tuesday, Anna Duggar said, "Meet little Madyson Lily Duggar!"

On her Instagram story, Anna Duggar added Madyson was born Oct. 23 at 2:39 a.m. She was 7 pounds and 9 ounces and measured 20 inches long.

The announcement comes seven months after Anna, 33, and Josh Duggar, 33, announced they were expecting.

"It's a GIRL!!!!!! We are overjoyed to announce baby seven is on the way and we can't wait to hold her in our arms this fall!" the caption said, along with the hashtags #littleduggars and #babyseven.

Days later on April 29, Josh Duggar was arrested. He plead not guilty the next day to two counts of downloading and possessing images and videos depicting sexual abuse of minor children, some as young as toddlers.

Josh Duggar was released from jail May 6, but was confined to custody of the Rebers, longtime friends of his parents.

In August, Josh Duggar's attorneys filed motions seeking to dismiss child pornography charges against him, but a federal judge denied the motions in September.

His jury trial is scheduled for Nov. 30. If Josh Duggar is found guilty, he could face 40 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
