The Duggar clan has welcomed their first grandchild.

Mackynize Renee Duggar is the newest addition to the ever-expanding family featured on TLC's "18 Kids and Counting," Usmagazine.com reported.

The baby girl was born to Josh Duggar -- the oldest of the 18 children -- and his wife, Anna, both 20. The baby girl was 8 pounds and 19-1/2 inches.

"We're really excited about being grandparents. [Josh and Anna] are going to make great parents," Michelle Duggar, Josh's mom, told the "Today" show.

Josh met his wife at a home-schoolers' conference and dated for two years but only held hands during their courtship. They kissed for the first time when they were married in Sept. 2008 at the Buford Grove Baptist Church in Hilliard, Florida.

Mackynzie Renee will soon have a 19th aunt or uncle.  Her grandmother Michelle announced in the spring that she is expecting a 19th child.
