The couple was surrounded by family on the big day and celebrated their new addition with sweet photos.
In addition to the announcement, Jed and Katey shared their sons birth story in a vlog on Youtube.
The clip kicks off with the duo in the car, talking about questions they’ve been getting in the final days of their pregnancy.
The first-time mom said: “Those are the two things I get: ‘How are you feeling?’ and ‘When’s your due date?'”
Jed chimed in: “I will say, it’s like we tell everybody every week at church and then they ask again.”
The couple had a few laughs, before Katie revealed, “my body is definitely getting into labor mode.”
Jed then filmed Katey, revealing that the dup were preparing to head to the hospital “to get induced.”
They showed off their nursery, which had their packed bags in it.
Katey told viewers: “This has been ready for a while.”
She showed off the baby’s closet, dresser, crib and more.
Upon arriving at the hospital, Katey changed into her hospital gown and it was game on.
Her doctors induced her and the couple waited for the baby to make his debut.
They played games, moved about the room and Jed even stepped out for a food run, returning with McDonald’s for the mom-to-be.
The video – labeled “Part 1” – ended before the couple’s first child’s arrival.
Within minutes of the announcement, Duggar fans and critics alike took to Reddit to weigh in on the baby’s arrival, the announcement, and – of course – the name.
Reddit users were split on the moniker.
One social media user wrote: “The only positive thing I can say about the name Truett is that it’s not Spurgeon.”
Ein anderer fügte hinzu: “That’s one way to make sure your kid will be the One True Duggar.”
A third Duggar commentator wrote: “At least “Truett” resembles a name, even if an old timey late 1800s one, unlike a certain cousin of his.”
Someone else chimed in: “If they’re going to call him True can we talk about how he shares a name with a FEMALE kardashian.”
Another Reddit user weighed in: “Truett is my brother’s name. He gets a lot of comments from older people. “That was my grandfather’s name,” oder “I haven’t heard that name in 30 Jahre.” I was old enough when he was born to ask my parents why they would do that to him, but it’s grown on me through the years.”
In addition to being compared to Khloe’s daughter True, baby Truett was linked to another famous True: the founder of Chick-Fil-A, often touted for their fundamental Christian ties.
“They basically named him after the founder of Chick Fil A! His name was S. Truett Cathy! This is so fitting for a Duggar,” one Reddit user wrote.
Ein anderer fügte hinzu: “Reminds me of Chick-fil-A— Truett Cathy founded CFA. Is this why they named him that?”
