Joseph and Kendra Duggar Reveal Their Baby’s Gender!
UPDATE (2/5/18 at 10:28 a.m. ET):
Joseph and Kendra Duggar are expecting a little baby boy!
The Counting On couple shared the exciting news over the weekend.
“Wow! We are so happy to learn that our firstborn is a boy! Our minds are already racing toward all the future memories to be made with this little guy!” the couple told Us Weekly.
“Most of all, we are already asking God to bless him and help us grow him into a loving and faithful follower of Christ!”
Original story (1/18/17 at 12:06 p.m. ET):
The Duggars are giving the Kardashians a run for their money for the award of "Most Babies Born to One Reality TV Family in 2018."
Kendra and Joseph Duggar have revealed they're expecting their first child together.
And no, you're not crazy — the youngins have only been married for barely three months!
Joseph, 23, married 19-year-old Kendra Caldwell at a church in Arkansas on September 8, 2017.
Though the wedding was relatively intimate by Duggar standards, the couple had a 22-person wedding party, which included various members of the Counting On family.
And now here we are, barely 12 weeks later, and the newlyweds are going to be parents.
“During this season that we are celebrating the birth of Christ, we are so excited to share with you that we are expecting the gift of a child ourselves!” the TLC stars tell Us Weekly.
“Wow, it’s so exciting!!! We’ve both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God. It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one. We cannot wait to see this new baby!”
The couple's due date has not been revealed, but it's safe to assume they're due sometime in May or June of 2018 — about nine months after becoming Mr. and Mrs.
But this is par for the course for the large reality TV brood.
In August, just three months after her own Memorial Day Weekend wedding, Joy-Anna Duggar revealed she and her husband, Austin Forsyth, are expecting their first child.
Similarly to her little brother's reveal, Joy-Anna broke the news by posting a cute photo of herself eating a big ice cream sundae out of a mug. What is with the Duggars and personalized mugs?!
And this isn't exactly the first time Joseph and Joy-Anna are sharing the spotlight.
Joseph actually proposed to Kendra at Joy-Anna and Austin's wedding after courting for just a few months.
But with 18 siblings, it's nearly impossible for the family milestones not to overlap even a little bit, right?!
Joy-Anna's pregnancy, however, has been clouded in controversy, as some fans think she's lying about her due date and may have concieved before she was even married.
Others say her bigger-than-average baby bump means they're expecting twins!
But either way, Joseph's and Joy-Anna's babies-to-be will join the ever-growing group of Duggar grandkids.
Michelle and Jim-Bob, parents of 19, are already grandparents to Josh and Anna's five kids, Jill and Derick's two sons, Israel and Samuel, as well as Jessa and Ben's boys, Spurgeon and Henry.
The only Duggar spawn who's married but doesn't yet have kids is daughter Jinger and her hubby Jeremy Vuolo, who just celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary.
But it's only a matter of time, we're sure!
