‘My beautiful niece!’ Jessa Duggar brushes aside family controversy to welcome brother Josh’s new daughter… while cousin Amy says the baby is ‘perfect’.

The couple commemorated 31 years of marriage on Tuesday, just days after TLC announced it had canceled their hit series “19 Kids and Counting” in response to their son Josh’s molestation scandal. The Duggars set aside their recent troubles and were all about love and joy on Tuesday, July 21, as the large clan gathered at the family home in Arkansas to celebrate parents and ’s 31st wedding anniversary.Josh Duggar, the eldest son featured on TLC’s recently cancelled 19 Kids and Counting reality show, has announced the birth of his and his wife’s fourth child.

The Duggars also mentioned the special in their statement on the cancellation, writing that they “look forward to working with TLC” and “hope that it is an encouragement to many.” Now, a source at TLC tells PEOPLE that Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard will indeed appear in the documentary, which is in the early stages of production.Jessa Duggar has shared her excitement at the arrival of her brother Josh’s new daughter by posting a cute photo of the infant on her Instagram account. The couple also posted an anniversary video on their website, in which the Duggar patriarch surprises his wife with a “special gift”: a ring he designed that features all 19 of their children’s birthstones. Jessa, 22, and husband Ben Seewald are expecting their first child on November 1, their first wedding anniversary and Jessa has been excitedly sharing photos of her growing bump on social media. Josh, 27, has been at the center of a media firestorm since May when it became public that he had inappropriately touched some of his own sisters and a babysitter when he was a teenager.

TLC is partnering with child protective organizations, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network and Darkness to Light, to raise awareness and offer families dealing with similar issues resources. “We realized just how huge and devastating the issue of child sexual abuse is around the U.S,” the TLC source explains. “We felt there was a conversation happening because of the Duggars’ situation, and we wanted to do something to move it forward.” Dillard, 24, and Seewald, 22, discussed the scandal on Fox News in June, saying they had “moved on” long before a police report on the incidents resurfaced this spring. “I think all the people in our lives, like our close friends and the people – the officials – that helped us, walked alongside the family during this time and walked us through some of our hardest days, they knew about this. As the 48-year-old matriarch gushed about her “giant” new accessory, the camera pans around to reveal various members of the family who are celebrating the happy day, including eldest son Josh, who was sitting on the couch with his wife, Anna. Their thinking is, they put this behind them ages ago, so why wouldn’t the rest of the world?” “With God’s grace and help Josh, our daughters and our entire family overcame a terrible situation, found healing and a way forward.

InTouch reported that the individual is a non-Duggar victim, and according to a law enforcement insider, is not happy with the way the family presented the scandal to the media after it was revealed what Josh had done to minor girls as a teenager. ‘This whole sordid affair with Josh rattled a lot of people, including the victim, who had to relive this nightmare all over again all while watching Josh’s parents go on TV and whitewash what happened,’ InTouch quoted a law enforcement insider as saying.
